Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine, Brandon Rush, Gorgui Dieng and Karl-Anthony Towns will start on Friday.
With the starters expected to play into the fourth, we should get a good amount of run from their four usual starters. Andrew Wiggins (illness) is out, so expect Rush and Shabazz Muhammad (hip) to split the SF minutes. Oct 21 - 7:56 PM

Brandon Rush filled in as a starter for Andrew Wiggins (illness) on Wednesday, posting nine points on 3-of-8 shooting with five assists, two rebounds, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Shabazz Muhammad was also resting with a sore hip, which thrust Rush into a much bigger role than usual. The veteran is little more than a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues.

Brandon Rush will start on Wednesday.

He's played mostly behind Zach LaVine, but Rush has played a ton of small forward in his career. Rush actually looks like he has the inside track for the last rotation spot in the regular season.
Oct 19 - 6:51 PM

Brandon Rush has agreed to a one-year, $3.5 million deal with the Wolves.

The Warriors are losing all of their depth, but they won't miss Rush too much. Rush played just 14.7 minutes per game last season with most of his work coming while Harrison Barnes was hurt. He'll likely just be emergency depth for the Wolves. Rush turns 31 on Thursday.
Jul 6 - 2:34 PM

Brandon Rush is active and James Michael McAdoo is inactive on Monday.

It has been the other way around in the last two games. This kind of shows coach Steve Kerr has more faith in his death lineup. Rush likely won't play unless there is foul trouble of a blowout.
May 30 - 9:00 PM

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.
Apr 28 - 1:20 AM

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.
