Kevin Durant and the Warriors agreed to a two-year, $61.5 million deal with a player option for the 2019-20 season.
After the Warriors won the title this summer, general manager Bob Myers said that KD gets whatever he wants, so he backs up his words with this agreement. The one-plus-one deal will drop the Warriors’ tax bill this season about $20 million, so that could help them when it’s time to sign midlevel-exception players with what could be $3.8 million more on the taxpayer MLE. While KD appears to love everything about the Bay Area with all of his community work, the Warriors will have to sweat at least a little next summer with KD possibly opting out and maybe looking for something new in what should be a wild 2019 free agency. Before we get ahead of ourselves, the Warriors are easily the heavy favorite to win another NBA title and KD could be eyeing his third title at age 30. Jun 30 - 11:51 PM

Stephen Curry will not be in attendance for the Team USA minicamp in July.

Curry, fresh off winning his third championship, will instead be spending time with his family, who just saw the new addition of a baby boy. LeBron James will also skip the voluntary minicamp, but Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are expected to be in attendance.

JaVale McGee will start in Game 2 against the Cavaliers on Sunday.

He started the second half of Game 1 and logged six minutes, scored four points, grabbed a board and got a block. This is McGee's first start since May 4th in the second round against the Pelicans. With Kevon Looney not playing lights out, he could be in the starting lineup until Andre Iguodala (leg) returns. McGee will start alongside Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.
Jun 3 - 7:27 PM

Kevon Looney will continue to start along with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson in Game 1 on Thursday.

He remains in the starting lineup while Andre Iguodala is still out. Looney will probably continue to hover around 20 minutes for Game 1.
May 31 - 8:50 PM

Andre Iguodala (knee) is doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Thunder.

The Dubs are locked in as the No. 2 seed, and having Iguodala healthy for what they hope to be lengthy postseason run is going to be their main priority, so he could take his time coming back from this knee issue. Kevin Durant should see heavy minutes in his absence, with Nick Young flirting with playing time in the mid-20s.
Apr 2 - 6:25 PM

Klay Thompson has been diagnosed with a fractured right thumb and he will be re-evaluated next Thursday, March 22.

This means that Thompson won't play again this week, and he could be looking at a multi-week absence here. Owners currently battling in the playoffs without an IR-spot and limited roster space may need to seriously consider cutting Klay. Kevin Durant is going to be ridiculously busy tonight with Stephen Curry (ankle) and Draymond Green (shoulder) also unavailable, and there will be more minutes for Nick Young and Omri Casspi. Young is worth a speculative add in deep leagues.
Mar 14 - 1:47 PM

Klay Thompson's sprained right thumb might be more serious than initially expected, and he it could take "weeks" to fully heal.

It sounds like Thompson won't be taking the floor on Wednesday against the Lakers, and Marcus Thompson of The Athletic reports that the thumb injury isn't just a "day-to-day" thing. The Warriors could be very shorthanded tonight with Stephen Curry (ankle), Draymond Green (shoulder) and David West (arm) already ruled out, so Kevin Durant's usage could go into the ridiculous range. Nick Young and Omri Casspi will also pick up some extra minutes if Thompson is out.
Mar 14 - 1:31 PM

Draymond Green (dental work) is probable for Thursday's game in Dallas.

Shaun Livingston (left elbow soreness) and David West (right calf tension) are also probable, while Kevin Durant (left hand contusion) is questionable. We should have confirmation on most of these guys after Golden State's shootaround, so check back in the afternoon. Green took a shot to the mouth on Tuesday but it sounds like he'll be ready to go.
Feb 7 - 7:41 PM

Stephen Curry (right shoulder soreness) struggled in Tuesday's 129-99 blowout loss to the Jazz, scoring 14 points with five assists, two rebounds and one triple in 30 minutes.

Curry hit just 4-of-13 shots, but he wasn't the only Warrior who struggled -- Kevin Durant had 17 points on 5-of-13 shooting and called this his worst game of the season, while Draymond hit 3-of-11 shots for eight points. Curry's shoulder issue is very minor and he was coming off a 49-point outing, so we'll chalk this up as an off night. Expect him to bounce back vs. the Kings on Friday.
Jan 31 - 12:32 AM

Draymond Green (right shoulder soreness) and Andre Iguodala (calf) are questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

Green was icing his shoulder after Monday's win, and it's become a reoccurring issue this season, so it wouldn't be all that surprising to see him hit the sidelines on Wednesday night with a matchup against the 16-27 Bulls. The same can be said about Iguodala. If both these guys are out, there minutes will be divvied up between Kevin Durant, David West, Omri Casspi and Jordan Bell.
Jan 16 - 3:56 PM

Stephen Curry (ankle) will start Saturday vs. the Raptors.

Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Zaza Pachulia will join Curry in the starting five tonight, and there's been no word on a minutes limit, so owners can feel free to throw him out there for tonight's game. With Curry back in the starting five, Patrick McCaw will return to the bench, and he'll lose most his appeal with the Dubs' stars all healthy.
Jan 13 - 6:55 PM

Andre Iguodala (knee, hip) started Monday's game and had five points on 2-of-4 shooting, three rebounds, two blocks, one steal, one assist and one 3-pointer in a home win vs. Denver.

Iguodala has been a regular on the Warriors' injury report lately, but he played 30 minutes tonight due to Kevin Durant's absence. There's no reason to think he'll miss the Warriors' final two games this week, Wednesday vs. the Clippers and Friday vs. the Bucks. Still, Iguodala's deep-league owners know the drill -- confirm his status after each shootaround, just to be safe.
Jan 9 - 1:39 AM

Andre Iguodala (back) returned to action on Thursday vs. Houston, scoring 10 points (5-of-9 FGs) with nine assists, two rebounds, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

He started for the injured Kevin Durant (calf) and looked healthy for the first time in a while -- He looked bouncy and had some really nice dunks. Incredibly, this was his first game with double-digit points since the end of November, so it's hard to get behind an add unless we know for sure that Durant will miss more time (he's day-to-day).
Jan 4 - 10:57 PM

Andre Iguodala (sore lower back) will play vs. the Rockets on Thursday.

Kevin Durant (calf) has been ruled out tonight, while Omri Casspi (back) is still listed as questionable, so Iguodala's return bolsters the wing rotation. Patrick McCaw and Nick Young should also pick up a handful of minutes in Durant's absence, since the Warriors tend to be cautious with Iguodala's workload even when he's fully healthy.
Jan 4 - 2:36 PM

Patrick McCaw, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Jordan Bell will start on Christmas against the Cavs.

Green had X-rays taken on his elbow on Saturday, but the results were negative and he was always expected to play today. As a side note, he's trolling the Cavs with a pair of custom-made Arthur hyperdunks, which is about as Draymond Green as it gets. Get him active.
Mon, Dec 25, 2017 02:27:00 PM

Stephen Curry (right hand contusion), Kevin Durant (ankle) and Draymond Green (foot) are being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Kings.

None of these guys are dealing with a significant injury, but with a matchup against the 5-14 Kings, head coach Steve Kerr could elect to give his stars the night off. If all these guys are out, we'll likely see Shaun Livingston, Omri Casspi and Jordan Bell move into the starting group, and Bell would make for a very attractive DFS target after going off in his previous start. Stay tuned.
Sun, Nov 26, 2017 03:49:00 PM

Andre Iguodala scored a season-high 12 points in 32 minutes on Sunday, going 4-of-11 from the field with five rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one block.

This was the second time all season that Iguodala has scored double-digit points, and his playing time was also a season-high due to Kevin Durant's absence with a sprained ankle. Durant is day-to-day, so this doesn't have any lasting repercussions.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 09:01:00 PM

Omri Casspi started Sunday's game in place of Kevin Durant (ankle), hitting 6-of-10 shots to finish with 12 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 23 minutes.

Casspi has fit in seamlessly with the Warriors this season, but tonight's starting gig was situational. Steve Kerr strongly suggested that Durant will return vs. the Thunder on Wednesday, although Durant himself said he's "not sure" if he'll be ready to go. Either way, Casspi is waiver-wire fodder in standard leagues.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 09:00:00 PM

Omri Casspi will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nets, with Kevin Durant (ankle) unavailable.

This will be Casspi's first start of the season, and he'll likely be splitting minutes with Andre Iguodala and Nick Young at the three-spot tonight, but at the very least he should be good for some points and triples. Steve Kerr said he was confident that Durant will be back in action for Wednesday's game in OKC, so Casspi's job as a starter should be short-lived.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 04:38:00 PM

Stephen Curry (right thigh contusion) is "very, very, very unlikely to play" Monday vs. the Magic, according to Warriors' Insider Monte Poole.

The Dubs are so stacked that they can afford to have their stars take a night off here and there without significantly diminishing their chances of pulling off a win, and with Curry not making it through shootaround and Golden State calling up Quinn Cook from the G-League, it's looking like the two-time MVP will be watching from the sidelines tonight. Shaun Livingston will draw the start if Curry sits, and guys like Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will see an uptick in usage.
Mon, Nov 13, 2017 02:49:00 PM

Nick Young scored 12 points with five assists, four steals and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes vs. the Wolves on Wednesday.

This was the busiest Young has been since the Warriors' season opener, but it has everything to do with Kevin Durant (bruised left thigh) being out tonight. Durant is day-to-day which means that even Young's DFS appeal is hanging by a thread.
