In his highest-scoring game since Jan. 8, Brandon Rush came off the bench on Wednesday for 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting with three 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes.
Rush scored 10 of his points in the second half, during what was essentially garbage time, but it's still an encouraging sign for the Warriors. The easy win gives Golden State some extra rest before their second-round matchup vs. either the Clippers or Blazers, and it provides an emotional lift for a team that's playing without their MVP.

Brandon Rush returned on Wednesday with one rebound in nine minutes against the Jazz.

The Warriors won't really need him even with Andre Iguodala (hamstring) on the shelf. Rush can be left on the wire unless the Warriors rest guys.
Mar 31 - 12:10 AM

Brandon Rush (knee) is available to play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He might not get many minutes after missing Tuesday due to his knee injury. Rush's return means Ian Clark may not play as much in the road-road back-to-back game.
Mar 30 - 8:30 PM

Brandon Rush (knee) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Wednesday.

He was hurt on Sunday and did not play on Tuesday. If Rush can't go, there should be a role for Ian Clark on the bench. Neither are fantasy options, though.
Mar 30 - 2:42 PM

Brandon Rush (knee) will not play vs. the Wizards on Tuesday.

He suffered the injury on Sunday and wasn't able to return, so the Warriors will be cautious. With Rush out, Ian Clark, Leandro Barbosa and Shaun Livingston could see a few more minutes.
Mar 29 - 10:12 PM

Brandon Rush (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards.

He picked up the injury on Sunday and wasn't able to return. If Rush sits on Tuesday, Shaun Livingston, Ian Clark and Leandro Barbosa could all get a couple more minutes.
Mar 28 - 7:53 PM

Brandon Rush (knee) is likely probable for Tuesday against the Wizards, according to coach Steve Kerr.

He left Sunday's game due to a knee injury and did not return. If Rush can't go, there should be a couple extra minutes for Ian Clark.
Mar 28 - 3:20 PM

Brandon Rush (knee) exited Sunday's game in the third quarter and is questionable to play vs. the Wizards on Tuesday.

The severity of the injury isn't clear but hopefully it's just some routine soreness for Rush, who had reconstructive left knee surgery in 2013. His absence leaves Golden State thin on the wings until Andre Iguodala (ankle) returns, but it doesn't have a significant fantasy impact.
Mar 27 - 10:52 PM

Brandon Rush will come off the bench on Monday vs. the Wolves.

The Wolves start two bigs in Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns, so the Warriors need James Michael McAdoo's size down low. Rush can be left on the wire.
Mar 21 - 8:05 PM

Brandon Rush started on Saturday vs. the Spurs and scored 10 points with three boards, one steal and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes.

The Warriors will get the results of Andrew Bogut's (toe) MRI on Sunday, so there could be more starts heading Rush's way. He averaged 6.9 points, 3.3 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.5 3-pointers in his previous 24 starts this season, so there's obviously not a lot of upside here.
Mar 20 - 12:16 AM

Brandon Rush will start on Saturday vs. the Spurs.

Andrew Bogut (toe) is out, so Draymond Green will move to center. Rush has posted averages of 6.9 points, 3.3 boards, 1.0 assists and 1.5 3-pointers in 24 previous starts, so most fantasy owners can ignore him.
Mar 19 - 8:19 PM

Brandon Rush is expected to pick up more minutes with Andre Iguodala (ankle) out of the lineup.

Despite the temporary increase in his role, Rush is waiver wire fodder in fantasy leagues.
Mar 14 - 10:28 AM

Brandon Rush will come off the bench vs. the Hawks on Monday.

Andrew Bogut (Achilles) is back in the starting lineup, so this is not a surprise. Rush will see limited minutes off the bench tonight and isn't worth deploying in most leagues.
Feb 22 - 7:35 PM

Brandon Rush started for Andrew Bogut (Achilles) and scored six points with five boards, three assists, one block and one steal in 27 minutes.

Rush isn't a big part of the offense and that isn't going to change any time soon. Even if Bogut misses more time, Rush is only a short-term option in very deep leagues.
Feb 21 - 12:00 AM

Brandon Rush will start for Andrew Bogut on Saturday.

It's not a surprise. The Warriors want to keep Marreese Speights in the second unit while they can stagger Andre Iguodala in there as well. Rush isn't a fantasy option.
