Stephen Curry scored 27 points with five rebounds, five assists, three steals and five 3-pointers during a 112-95 win over the Nets on Saturday.

With Kevin Durant (hand) out for the first time all season, Klay Thompson also scored 24 points to be the only two Warriors to hit double-digit scoring in this win. The Warriors became the first team this season to clinch a playoff spot and sit at 49-9 on the year. Curry also had a four-point play for two straight games to get him to five of those on the season. He had a terrible finish to his first half, but he's started hot with this gem and a 35-point Thursday. The Warriors start their five-game East Coast trip on Tuesday and will be on the road until Mar. 8 when Boston comes to the Bay Area. Curry is sitting pretty as a top-five player in fantasy this season.

Draymond Green made 1-of-10 from the field for five points with eight rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Nets on Saturday.

He's actually in a brutal offensive slump over his last four, making just 18.2 percent from the field. Green has made just 2-of-15 beyond three feet, but he did make 9-of-10 from the line. He's not on your fantasy team for scoring anyway, so his fantasy owners shouldn't sweat the slump too much. Although, his playing time is also down to just 21.3 minutes per game. Green has been a top-15 player on the season for total value in standard leagues, but his owners can probably expect a slight drop with the Warriors clinching a postseason spot already.

The Warriors are expected to sign Jose Calderon after his buyout from the Lakers.

The Warriors released Briante Weber today, so clearly they feel they have a great shot at Calderon. The 35-year-old guard won't see much playing time unless Stephen Curry is out of the lineup.

Andre Iguodala dished out a season-high nine assists against the Nets on Saturday, adding five points, two rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He assisted seven different players in this game with some fancy passing all night. Not having Kevin Durant (hand) helped Iguodala, but his versatility makes him a beneficiary when basically any starter is out of the lineup. He's actually been super sneaky as a sixth-round guy in his last 15 games, so feel free to keep riding him. Although, there will be rest next month.
Feb 26 - 1:24 AM

Patrick McCaw started against the Nets on Saturday with nine points, four rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 25 minutes.

Kevin Durant's left hand was bandaged on Friday, but he is not expected to miss much time. It took about three months, but McCaw is starting to show why he had so much hype in preseason and in Summer League. Once the Warriors lock up homecourt, we could see plenty of McCaw in mid-April.

The Warriors will release Briante Weber.

It's buyout season and the Warriors will be looking at guys like Jose Calderon. This is actually a positive for Weber because some team with less talent will be signing him.
Feb 26 - 1:16 AM

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored a team-high 16 points during a 112-95 loss to the Warriors on Saturday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.

Even with a dearth of wings tonight, RHJ still logged 100 percent of his minutes at power forward. Based on that, it seems like he'll be getting almost all of his minutes there going forward. It's obviously not a bad idea with Hollis-Jefferson's defense and based on how he's made just 29.5 percent on jumpers this year, so keeping him closer to the basket should reduce those total J's. He is trending up, scored at least 15 points in consecutive games for the first time in his career, and is worth a very long look in standard leagues.

Jeremy Lin played 15 minutes with nine points, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer against the Warriors on Saturday.

Just like on Friday, he was right at 15 might again. That doesn't really feel like a coincidence for the oft-injured Lin and the Nets will obviously take it easy on their highest-paid guard. If you want to pick him up, just remember that he will be seeing a ton of maintenance days going forward.
Feb 26 - 1:09 AM

Brook Lopez scored just nine points with four rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

It's just the seventh game Lopez has played the second half of a back-to-back set, but it's worth a mention he did play in the last set earlier this month. Losing 16 games straight has to be taking its toll on Brook, but this dud is a fluke for one of the best centers in the Eastern Conference. He should flirt with early-round value, but the possible rest is going to be very annoying going forward. This was also his 505th start as Net for the second most in franchise history.
Feb 26 - 1:05 AM

Sean Kilpatrick scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

Its' just the fourth double-double of his career, but he was not exactly playing well coming into this game. In his previous February games, he averaged just 9.4 points, 3.1 boards, 1.7 assists, 0.2 steals and 1.7 treys on 37.3 percent from the field. Kilpatrick's ceiling also goes down with Jeremy Lin back, so leave him on the wire for now.
Feb 26 - 1:01 AM

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 13 points with five rebounds, five assists and two 3-pointers in 29 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

The Nets actually used him off the ball a little during this game due to their lack of wings. Dinwiddie also did have a minor left knee injury in this game, but he did play through it -- he tore his left ACL in college. With Jeremy Lin back, it'll be tough to use Dinwiddie most nights. Although, Lin should rest here and there.
Feb 26 - 12:57 AM

Joe Harris scored eight points in a start against the Warriors on Saturday, adding one rebound, one assist, two steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

He actually had a block on a driving JaVale McGee tonight -- don't tell Shaq. Harris should be moving back to the bench for the next game with Caris LeVert (illness) not playing tonight. Harris is only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 26 - 12:55 AM

K.J. McDaniels played two minutes in his Nets debut on Saturday.

It was only garbage time for McDaniels. He could get minutes at some point down the line, especially when the Nets rest players. Just keep an eye on the shot-blocking wing.
Feb 26 - 12:53 AM

Dirk Nowitzki scored 18 points during a 96-83 win over the Pelicans Saturday, adding nine rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

It is likely going to be his last start at center with Nerlens Noel set to take over that spot, but coach Rick Carlisle suggested Dirk will be sliding to the four. "I don't see Dirk coming off the bench as a good option," Carlisle said. "I don't see it in my wheelhouse." Nowitzki has sneakily been a top-50 player in his last 20 active games, so his patient owners are seeing some nice dividends.
Feb 26 - 12:42 AM

Brandon Rush played 33 minutes vs. the Rockets on Saturday, but missed all five of shots and failed to score.

He finished with five rebounds and two assists. He was averaging 27.0 minutes per game in February prior to tonight, but he might be the least productive starter in the league with averages of 5.3 points and 2.6 rebounds in that span. There's no fantasy value here.
