If Andrew Bogut (adductor) can't play, coach Steve Kerr thinks Marreese Speights and Anderson Varejao would play.
"Of course we could go Draymond at the center, as well," Kerr said. "So we’ve got a lot of options. A lot of depth. The good thing is we’ve had to play without a lot of people this year and we’ve had to adapt to that. So we’ll figure it out." The Warriors were actually at their best with Speights on the floor against the Thunder during the season with Speights' team-high plus-45.4 net rating in 41 minutes. If Bogut is out, Speights is on the table as a DFS punt. May 14 - 7:27 PM

Marreese Speights scored a team-high 22 points in a loss to the Rockets on Thursday, shooting 7-of-11 from the field.

He also hit 3-of-5 3-pointers and added four rebounds and one block in just 18 minutes. Speights picked up a few extra minutes with Andrew Bogut getting into some foul trouble, so most fantasy owners will want to ignore this big line unless he does it again.
Apr 22 - 1:10 AM

Marreese Speights scored 12 points with five rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes against the Rockets on Saturday.

Who needs Stephen Curry (ankle) when you have a hot Mo Buckets? In his usual fashion, Speights had a team-high 39.9 usage rate in this win while making 5-of-11 from the field. Because of the possibility of garbage time, Speights might get decent run in this series.
Apr 16 - 7:06 PM

Steve Kerr praised Mo Speights, calling his play "fantastic this last month or so."

March has been Speights' most productive month of the season with averages of 9.6 points, 3.7 rebounds, 0.9 blocks and 0.9 3-pointers on 50.9 percent shooting, and while he can be a per-minute monster, Speights isn't a reliable asset to deploy in standard fantasy formats.
Mar 28 - 2:01 PM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 17 points, seven rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes vs. Philly, making 7-of-10 shots including a pair of 3-pointers.

The Warriors were favored to win by 21.5 points tonight and their victory (albeit by 12 points) makes them a perfect 35-0 at home this season. Speights now has 21 triples this year, after hitting a total of 19 in his first seven seasons, as the Warriors' perimeter attack seems to have rubbed off on him. Nevertheless, he's far too erratic for use in standard leagues.
Mar 27 - 10:42 PM

Marreese Speights scored 13 points with five rebounds, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes against the Mavs on Friday.

He scored in double figures for the fourth consecutive time, which is his longest streak of the year. Speights could be looking at a few extra minute on Saturday because Andrew Bogut (toe) is doubtful. He will come off the bench to anchor the second unit, but he's worth a look in 16-team leagues for short-term value.
Mar 19 - 12:59 AM

Marreese Speights scored 14 points in 18 minutes against the Pelicans on Monday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

In true Mo Buckets fashion, he scored 12 points in the fourth quarter during garbage time. Among players with at least 10 games this season, Speights is one of 11 players with a usage rate over 30.0 -- the other 10 were All-Stars. Speights is an All-Star in the hearts of Golden State fans, though.
Mar 15 - 1:45 AM

Marreese Speights scored a season-high 25 points with nine rebounds, one block and two steals in 18 minutes against the Suns on Saturday.

It was vintage Mo Buckets, making 10-of-14 from the field and 5-of-6 from the line. Speights failed to score more than two points in three of his previous four, so it's hard to buy this line. He won't have much value while Draymond Green and Andrew Bogut are healthy.
Mar 13 - 1:19 AM

Marreese Speights had it going on Wednesday against the Jazz with 16 points, five rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in just 15 minutes.

It was a vintage Speights line, making 6-of-10 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. Speights was coming off back-to-back two-point games, so he's obviously not the best option. He might have better nights when the Warriors rest Andrew Bogut.
Mar 10 - 1:18 AM

Marreese Speights played well off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Rockets, scoring 15 points with four rebounds and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes.

He scored 15 points in his last outing and has taken firm control of the backup center spot with Festus Ezeli (knee) out indefinitely. However, Speights is only going to play minutes in the teens on most occasions, so he's not a great add outside of deeper formats.
Feb 10 - 1:22 AM

Marreese Speights recorded his first double-double of the season on Tuesday vs. the Lakers, scoring 12 points with 10 boards, two assists and one block in 24 minutes.

The Warriors won by 21 points, so garbage time was obviously a factor. Festus Ezeli picked up another DNP-CD and isn't ready to return from his foot injury yet, so Speights logged minutes as the backup center and has now played well in two straight performances. That being said, he is still only worth a look in very deep leagues and could be out of the rotation when Ezeli returns.
Jan 6 - 1:19 AM

Marreese Speights scored a season-high 15 points against the Hornets on Monday with two rebounds and one block in 17 minutes.

Mo Buckets, mo' season highs. Festus Ezeli (toe) was held out for this game, which probably won't happen on Tuesday against the Lakers. If you wildly rode with the Speights Cowboy, you can probably drop him.
Jan 5 - 3:00 AM

Marreese Speights said he's willing to sacrifice a larger role for the good of the team.

Though Speights said he's a bit frustrated with his diminished role, he said he's willing to sacrifice for the better good. "This year has probably been the worst," Speights said. "This year has probably been the most frustrating. But at the end of the day, I understand that if you’re winning, that goal at the year is one of the great feelings ever in the world." Speights will see extra minutes as long as Festus Ezeli (toe) is sidelined, but he doesn't belong on standard league fantasy rosters.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 10:31:00 AM

Marreese Speights returned to Golden State's rotation with Festus Ezeli (toe) out on Wednesday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, one steal and three turnovers.

Starting C Andrew Bogut continues to play well, finishing tonight's rare defeat with nine points on 4-of-4 FGs, 10 rebounds, one assist and one steal, and Ezeli has established himself as Bogut's backup. Ezeli is day-to-day which means that Speights is a non-factor in nearly all fantasy leagues.
Thu, Dec 31, 2015 01:55:00 AM

Marreese Speights is expected to play the backup center spot in place of Festus Ezeli (toe).

The only Warrior with a higher usage rate than Mo Buckets is Stephen Curry (leg) this year, so this could be interesting. The Warriors also can't go with their small-ball lineup if Curry is out, so Speights might be able to get 20-plus minutes. You're playing with fire if you use Speights, but he might have a chance to perform tonight.
