Nick Young (illness) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Young has seen increased opportunities due to the Warriors being shorthanded, but has been mired in a terrible shooting slump. Over Golden State's last five games, Young is averaging 5.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 23.2 minutes, while shooting an abysmal 25.7 percent from the floor. Leave him on waivers.
Apr 7 - 9:29 AM

Nick Young (illness) played Thursday night vs. Portland, but finished with just four points and three rebounds in 21 minutes.

Young's disappointing season continues. Even with the Warriors shorthanded of late, Young has not stepped up. Over Golden State's last five games, Young is averaging 5.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 23.2 minutes, while shooting an abysmal 25.7 percent from the floor.
Apr 5 - 11:05 PM

Nick Young (illness) will play against the Pacers on Thursday night.

He should be getting minutes with Pat McCaw (back) and Andre Iguodala (knee) out. However, Young may not get enough shots with Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson around.
Apr 5 - 5:37 PM

Nick Young (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Pacers.

The Warriors will be very shorthanded tonight, so Young's status is definitely worth monitoring. They have a lot more depth up front than in their backcourt right now, so we can expect to see more two-big lineups with guys like Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell having to step up.
Apr 5 - 11:46 AM

Nick Young was held to five points on 2-of-8 shooting Thursday, to go with one 3-pointer, one rebound and two turnovers in 23 minutes off the bench.

With Kevin Durant (ribs) getting back to the court tonight, and Klay Thompson (thumb) on the cusp of a return, Young’s fantasy value has expired just about everywhere. He did appear to tweak his left ankle early in the fourth, but after getting checked up on the bench he got back into the game despite the score being massively uneven, so he should be fine for Saturday’s game in Sacramento.
Mar 30 - 1:34 AM

Nick Young will come off the bench on Thursday against the Bucks.

He'll be asked to do some scoring in the second unit because the Warriors don't need it anymore with the first now that Kevin Durant is back. Plus, Klay Thompson could be back this weekend, so Swaggy's run is coming to an end soon.
Mar 29 - 9:05 PM

Nick Young (knee) finished Sunday's game with nine points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one 3-pointer, shooting 3-of-14 from the field in 38 minutes.

Young has been dealing with right knee soreness lately, but his status for tonight's game was never truly in danger. He's gone from being a fantasy afterthought to a viable option in competitive playoff matchups, thanks to the severity of the Warriors' injury problems -- until Kevin Durant (ribs) and Klay Thompson (thumb) are healthy we should continue to see heavy doses of Young.
Mar 25 - 11:30 PM

Nick Young (knee), Pat McCaw (back) and Shaun Livingston (groin) are all available for Sunday's game.

Young and McCaw are in the starting lineup and can be deployed as usual -- both guys should be busy since the Warriors are playing without any of their four All-Stars tonight.
Mar 25 - 7:39 PM

Nick Young (knee) is probable for Sunday against the Jazz.

He got rolled up on last night and he did return. Young is likely looking at a lot of shots on Sunday with all the Warriors offensive stars out.
Mar 24 - 6:04 PM

Nick Young finished Friday's 106-94 victory against the Hawks with 24 points over 26 minutes.

Swaggy P has been leaned upon for a lot of run with plenty of injuries across the board for the Dubs. As long as Klay Thompson (thumb) and Omri Casspi (ankle) are nicked up, and now Steph Curry (knee) is out again, Young will have opportunity to log heavy minutes down the stretch in the regular season. He is a solid source of points and 3-pointers. He has also been dealing with a knee injury, but he said he will be all right going forward and is just a little sore.
Mar 24 - 2:48 AM

Nick Young scored 20 points on 7-of-15 shooting Saturday, to go with three 3-pointers, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 42 minutes.

Young is going to be forced into big minutes while Klay Thompson (thumb) and Omri Casspi (ankle) are out, and he's going to see a ton of opportunity on offense with Kevin Durant (ribs) also watching from the sidelines, so he'll be a steady source of points and triples moving forward. Grab him if you need some help in those categories.
Mar 18 - 1:05 AM

Nick Young made 5-of-15 from the field for 16 points with two rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

He is now ticketed for huge minutes with the three studs out and now Omri Casspi (ankle) went down tonight. Young is going to have his inefficiency issues at times, but he has a chance to flirt with 20 points per game over the next week-plus. If you can live with poor FG% and want points, Young should probably be owned.
Mar 17 - 12:59 AM

Nick Young made a fill-in start on Wednesday, scoring 18 points on 6-of-13 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.

Stephen Curry (ankle) is out through at least Mar. 20, and Klay Thompson (thumb) is out through at least Mar. 22, leaving Golden State to rely on guys like Young for backcourt production. Pat McCaw (wrist) has shed his brace and could return somewhat soon, however, which adds to Young's risky profile -- he's never had top-100 value (8-cat or 9-cat) in his 11-year career. Still, he's a viable streamer while the Warriors are this banged-up.
Mar 15 - 1:58 AM

Nick Young will start Wednesday's game for Klay Thompson (thumb).

The Warriors are dealing with a bunch of injuries and they're rolling out Young, Quinn Cook, Kevin Durant, Kevon Looney and Zaza Pachulia tonight. Young could get extended run for a while with Thompson out until at least Mar. 22, giving him some appeal as a cheap DFS and streaming option.
