Luke Walton said Brandon Rush's confidence has returned.
"He's got his confidence back," Walton said. "His shooting has been unbelievable, but he's playing defense, he's making plays. He's rebounding the ball and pushing it, where last season he didn't have the confidence to do that." Rush has responded well to Golden State having confidence in him, but with Harrison Barnes (ankle) healthy, there isn't any incentive to roster Rush on your team. Jan 18 - 12:36 PM

Brandon Rush will move back to the bench against the Pistons on Saturday.

Harrison Barnes is back in the saddle as the starting small forward, but Rush was terrific when the Warriors needed him. He will likely play minutes in the teens tonight and can be dropped in most leagues.
Jan 16 - 6:05 PM

Brandon Rush will start on Monday against the Heat and Harrison Barnes will eventually take over.

Rush is playing very well and scored a season-high 20 points on Friday. Barnes is still someone worth owning in standard leagues despite his slow start after missing over a month from an ankle injury.
Jan 11 - 9:00 PM

Brandon Rush scored a season-high 20 points against the Blazers on Friday with four rebounds, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers.

Apparently, he's still got it. Rush's career was sort of derailed from a 2012 ACL tear, but he's managed to play well this year. He is not an add because Harrison Barnes should play more going forward.
Jan 9 - 2:14 AM

Brandon Rush played 18 minutes in the starting lineup on Monday against the Hornets with 10 points, one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointers.

He'll be moving to the bench soon because Harrison Barnes (ankle) returned and looked good. Rush should be dropped basically everywhere.
Jan 5 - 2:53 AM

Brandon Rush (hamstring) will start on Monday vs. the Hornets.

Harrison Barnes (ankle) will return to action in this one, but the Warriors are easing him back into action. If you own Rush in a deep league, it's time to evaluate other options.
Jan 4 - 9:06 PM

Brandon Rush (hamstring) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Hornets.

With Harrison Barnes (ankle) expected to return to action, Rush's minutes are set to take a massive hit. Rush belongs on the wire in almost all leagues.
Jan 3 - 7:37 PM

Brandon Rush (hamstring) and James Michael McAdoo (toe) will not play on Saturday vs. the Nuggets.

With Harrison Barnes (ankle) still out, the Warriors will start Andre Iguodala at small forward in this one. The severity of Rush's injury is unknown, but he belongs on the wire in most leagues anyways.
Jan 2 - 8:58 PM

Brandon Rush started Wednesday's game in Charlotte but had only eight points, four rebounds and one block in 20 minutes of action.

Rush made two 3-pointers and is worth a glance as a specialist in deep leagues, but everyone else should leave him bobbing on the waiver wire. Golden State leaned heavily on their bench after the third quarter tonight, and wound up getting a combined 39 points on 46.0 percent shooting from their reserves.
Wed, Dec 2, 2015 10:30:00 PM

Brandon Rush played 12 minutes in a start on Monday with three points, two rebounds and one 3-pointer.

His 16-point game on Saturday had fluke written all over it and he's likely going to be putting up numbers like these while Harrison Barnes (ankle) is out. He's only worth a look for short-term value in 20-team leagues or deeper.
Tue, Dec 1, 2015 02:15:00 AM

Brandon Rush will draw another start on Monday against the Jazz.

Harrison Barnes (ankle) will miss at least three more games, but the Warriors won't rush him back and it's possible that Rush could draw several starts over the next couple of weeks. He did score 16 points in 19 minutes against the Kings on Saturday, but he will be a difficult player to trust outside of deeper leagues.
Mon, Nov 30, 2015 07:50:00 PM

Brandon Rush scored 16 points with three boards, one assist and four treys in 19 minutes in Saturday's win over the Kings.

Rush drew the start in place of a hobbled Harrison Barnes (ankle), and after a quiet first half he exploded for 14 points in the third quarter. His minutes were relatively low and it isn't clear how much time Barnes will miss, so Rush is only on the radar in deeper leagues.
Sun, Nov 29, 2015 01:43:00 AM

Brandon Rush will start on Saturday vs. the Kings with Harrison Barnes (ankle) unavailable.

He drew a start earlier in the season and scored eight points with two treys in 21 minutes, but it's probably best to just leave him on the wire for now.
Sat, Nov 28, 2015 08:48:00 PM

Brandon Rush picked up a DNP-CD on Tuesday against the Raptors.

He drew a start on Saturday against the Nets because Klay Thompson (back) was sidelined, but he isn't going to be in the rotation while the Warriors are healthy. Leave Rush on the wire.
Wed, Nov 18, 2015 01:41:00 AM

Brandon Rush started in place of Klay Thompson (back) for Saturday's game against the Nets and scored eight points with four boards, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

That's not a bad line for a guy who hasn't started an NBA game since 2012. Thompson's injury isn't believed to be serious, so there is no reason to consider adding Rush in almost any format after this performance. When Thompson does return, Rush will likely only be in the mix for minutes until Leandro Barbosa (personal) is back from Brazil.
