Nick Young started the second half in place of Zaza Pachulia on Wednesday, but he went scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes.
The Warriors trailed by 12 points at halftime and coach Steve Kerr decided to mix things up with a small lineup. We're not likely to see this often, though, and the real boost to Young's fantasy outlook came before the game with Patrick McCaw (wrist) ruled out approximately four weeks. Young still isn't worth touching in most leagues, though. Feb 15 - 1:39 AM

Nick Young hit 5-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes of Monday's 129-83 blowout win over the Suns.

This was a garbage-time special and Young had not scored more than nine points in his previous four games. He'll have his garbage-time moments the rest of the way, but figuring out when they're coming will be next to impossible.

Nick Young scored nine points in just four minutes off the bench in Saturday's 122-105 in against San Antonio.

Swaggy P made the most of his few minutes off the bench, hitting 3-of-5 from the field, including 3-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. Despite the sharp shooting, he played just four minutes. That's not good for anyone's fantasy value. He is still only worth fantasy consideration in the deepest of leagues until further notice.
Feb 10 - 11:57 PM

Nick Young finished Friday's 119-104 win at Sacramento with 12 points across 16 minutes off the bench.

Young hit 4-of-6 from the floor, all from behind the arc, while adding one rebound and no turnovers. Swaggy P was seeing a little extra run with Andre Iguodala on the mend, and he certainly outperformed Patrick McCaw. Still, he only warrants fantasy consideration in the very deepest of leagues at this point.
Feb 3 - 1:29 AM

Nick Young scored 16 points with one rebound, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Rockets on Saturday.

He's been filling some of Andre Iguodala's minutes, but Young only scored seven in his previous two over this 31 combined minutes. He's going to need a lot of players to miss time to have reliable fantasy value.
Jan 20 - 11:13 PM

Nick Young made his first start for the Warriors on Wednesday, pitching in seven points on 3-of-11 shooting (1-of-7 from deep) with one assist and one steal in 25 minutes.

Klay Thompson was resting tonight and the coach Steve Kerr opted for Swaggy's shooting with the starters, while Patrick McCaw logged 25 minutes off the bench. The Warriors were shredded defensively, both in the paint (60 points allowed) and beyond the arc (33 points), and it's safe to assume coach Steve Kerr can't wait to get Klay back in the starting five on Friday. Young belongs on the waiver wire.
Jan 11 - 1:47 AM

Nick Young will start vs. the Clippers on Wednesday.

This is Young's first start for the Warriors, and it comes in the absence of Stephen Curry (ankle) and Klay Thompson (rest). He's an interesting DFS punt and streaming option, but this is a very temporary situation.
Jan 10 - 10:20 PM

Steve Kerr said he's expecting Nick Young (concussion) to play Monday vs. the Lakers.

Young has officially cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol testing, so there's nothing suggesting he won't be back out there on Monday night. With Stephen Curry (ankle) and Shaun Livingston (knee) out on Monday, Young could see a few extra minutes falling his way, and he could be someone to consider as a 3-point streamer under the revenge game narrative.

Nick Young (concussion) is questionable to play against the Lakers on Monday.

He was on the practice floor on Saturday, but he still needs to be evaluated. Young could be symptom-free and going through shootaround on Monday could mean he gets a revenge game. With Stephen Curry (ankle) out, Young should be in the rotation once he's healthy, but he'll be a risky DFS play.
Sat, Dec 16, 2017 03:28:00 PM

Nick Young (concussion) will not play on Thursday vs. the Mavericks.

He did some work on the stationary bike on Wednesday, but he still has some tests to pass in the concussion protocol. We'll consider him questionable for Monday's game vs. the Lakers. Patrick McCaw and Omri Casspi could both see a decent chunk of minutes tonight.

Nick Young (concussion) did not practice on Wednesday, but he did some work on a stationary bike.

He may still be in the concussion protocol following his injury on Monday. If he's out, Patrick McCaw should pick up most of the backup shooting guard minutes while Andre Iguodala and Quinn Cook could see a few extra minutes.
Wed, Dec 13, 2017 03:15:00 PM

Nick Young (concussion) will not return to Monday's game vs. the Blazers.

He will now enter the concussion protocol and is in danger of missing Thursday's game vs. Dallas. Young was playing well tonight with 12 points and a pair of triples in 13 minutes, but he caught an inadvertent elbow from Jordan Bell while fighting for a rebound. If Young misses time Patrick McCaw will likely pick up his minutes.
Tue, Dec 12, 2017 12:29:00 AM

Nick Young scored 10 points with one rebound, one steal and two 3-pointers in 20 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.

Coach Steve Kerr has dusted off Swaggy PG at times this season and that could be a move we see more of as Stephen Curry (ankle) gets over his ankle injury. Young should be in the rotation at least until Pat McCaw (concussion) gets back, but he's going to be a shaky fantasy play.
Thu, Dec 7, 2017 12:24:00 AM

Nick Young scored 17 points with six rebounds and three 3-pointers in 19 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

This was all about the garbage time with 14 points coming in the fourth quarter. If Kevin Durant (ankle) is out again, Young could be in the rotation a little more on Saturday, but it's tough to count on him almost anywhere in fantasy.
Sat, Nov 25, 2017 01:02:00 AM

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.
