Brandon Rush (illness) is questionable to face the Thunder on Monday.

He didn't play in their last game on Friday and has only played 8.3 minutes per game. The Warriors are a little thin with Andrew Bogut (knee) and Festus Ezeli (ankle) out, but Rush will need a lot more to happen to get regular minutes.
Jan 5 - 2:44 PM

Brandon Rush logged 21 minutes off the Warriors' bench on Wednesday but finished scoreless with just two rebounds and one assist to his credit.

Rush earned more playing time with Leandro Barbosa (knee) unavailable, and his role will fluctuate depending upon nightly matchups. He's scored a grand total of four points in 78 minutes this season, which tells fantasy owners all they need to know.

Brandon Rush (lower back) was available for Sunday's game but he never left the Warriors' bench.

A sequence of injuries have derailed Rush over the past few years, and he was recently diagnosed with a stress reaction in his lower vertebrae, so there's no reason to target him as even a long-term fantasy option.

Brandon Rush (sacral stress reaction) is listed as probable to face the Lakers on Saturday.

It should be his season debut and the Warriors might use him since they won't be using Draymond Green at all at small forward. Rush still isn't going to get more than minutes in the teens even with the Warriors banged up at some point.

Brandon Rush (back) is not expected to play against the Kings on Wednesday.

His back injury just won't go away and he's had a number of injuries in his career. Rush won't have fantasy value especially with Andre Iguodala coming off the bench.
Wed, Oct 29, 2014 02:36:00 PM

Brandon Rush (back) was limited during Monday's practice, and has been downgraded to questionable for opening night.

Rush's role with the Warriors is very limited, so it shouldn't matter to fantasy owners in standard leagues whether or not he plays.
Mon, Oct 27, 2014 05:11:00 PM

Brandon Rush (back spasms) returned to practice on Sunday and he's considered probable for Wednesday's season opener.

Rush aggravated the injury twice during recent exhibitions and it's encouraging to see him make it through practice unscathed. Major knee surgery caused him to play a total of 40 games over the past two seasons, but when healthy he has enough talent to carve out a small bench role under coach Steve Kerr.

Brandon Rush (back spasms) won't play in Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers, and he'll be re-evaluated in one week.

His back flared up during each of the Warriors' past two exhibitions, and his status for opening night is unclear. Golden State has enough depth on the wings that Andre Iguodala could fill a bench role, and there's no reason to touch Rush on draft day.
Tue, Oct 21, 2014 02:35:00 PM

Brandon Rush sat out the second half of Sunday's game due to spasms in his lower back.

Rush tweaked his back on Friday and may need a few more days to recover, but at least the injury doesn't sound serious. Reconstructive knee surgery has derailed his career but he's looking to make a comeback with Golden State this season, and the injury risk combined with a bench role is enough reason to avoid him in fantasy leagues.
Mon, Oct 20, 2014 01:39:00 AM

Brandon Rush said on Saturday that he's fine after his back injury on Friday.

He said he originally hurt it while doing some weight lifting and he's questionable for Sunday. Rush has no fantasy value.
Sun, Oct 19, 2014 12:09:00 AM

Brandon Rush exited Friday's preseason game against the Heat before the second half due to back spasms and did not return.

Rush is on the long road back from a serious knee injury and as a result tightness due to game action isn't too surprising. His services are particularly valuable to the Warriors while Shaun Livingston gets back on track from a toe injury.

Brandon Rush stated during a recent interview that his knee is feeling "pretty good."

"It’s feeling pretty good, no swelling, no soreness. Everything feels pretty good," said Rush. Rush is a solid defender, and a terrific shooter from beyond the arc, however he's not likely to average enough minutes for standard league consideration. Feel free to ignore Rush come draft day.
Sun, Oct 12, 2014 10:23:00 AM

Brandon Rush (knee) played six minutes off the Warriors' bench on Tuesday, scoring two points with one rebound and one assist.

Rush has had a very long road back after tearing the ACL and MCL in his left knee in 2012, but he said recently that he feels 100 recovered both physically and mentally. The Warriors will be satisfied if he defends reliably and makes open 3-pointers as a reserve swingman.
Wed, Oct 8, 2014 02:52:00 AM

Brandon Rush stated during a recent interview that his knee finally feels 100 percent healthy, and he's getting over the mental hurdle of attacking the rim.

Rush will be playing in a reserve role for the Warriors, and he's not likely to average enough minutes for standard league consideration.
