Marreese Speights has been suspended for one game for pleading no contest to reckless driving, in violation of Florida law, and he will miss Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

With Andrew Bogut likely to be rested tonight, David Lee could slot into the starting center spot for Golden State, and he'd make for a solid plug-and-play option in daily leagues. Speights will return to action for Saturday's game against the Knicks.

Marreese Speights plead no contest to a reduced misdemeanor charge of reckless driving that stemmed from his arrest in Tampa in August.

Speights was originally charged with driving under the influence, but his lawyers were able to negotiate a deal that included $903 in fines and court costs. We'll have to await word on if Speights will face any discipline from the league, but let's let this serve a teachable moment for finding a designated driver.
Mar 3 - 1:26 PM

Marreese Speights was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Celtics on Sunday.

Boston went very small with their second unit, deploying Jonas Jerebko at center, so the matchups didn't favor Speights at all. He's averaging just 13 minutes over Golden State's past 10 games and has no fantasy upside while Andrew Bogut, David Lee and Draymond Green are healthy.
Mar 2 - 12:54 AM

Marreese Speights was back in double-digits on Tuesday, making 6-of-12 shots off the bench to finish with 16 points, two boards, one assist and two turnovers in just 15 minutes.

Speights has blocked one shot total since Jan. 23, and he was averaging a mere 5.3 points in a negligible role over Golden State's previous three games. He's prone to random offensive eruptions but isn't a viable fantasy player with Andrew Bogut and David Lee both healthy.
Feb 24 - 9:38 PM

Marreese Speights played just 14 minutes on Wednesday, but still had 14 points, six rebounds and a block.

He's averaging 11.5 points and 7.5 rebounds over his last five, but that's his first block during that stretch. He's really only worth using when Andrew Bogut isn't playing, which isn't the case right now.
Feb 5 - 2:46 AM

Marreese Speights returned to double-digits on Tuesday with 17 points on 8-of-13 shooting, adding eight rebounds and three assists before fouling out.

Speights accumulated those stats in just 21 minutes off the bench. He didn't leave the bench vs. Phoenix on Saturday and there was no report of an injury, so it appears to have been a DNP-CD. Tonight's bounce-back effort is a reminder of his upside, but Speights remains a poor option in standard leagues while Andrew Bogut and David Lee are healthy.
Feb 4 - 1:21 AM

Marreese Speights was quiet in just 17 minutes of action on Friday, scoring five points on 1-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds and no steals or blocks.

The Warriors struggled in general tonight and that's not going to be the norm, obviously, so owners may want to throw this game out for evaluation purposes. Speights has been a low-end big man in 12-14 team leagues this season.
Jan 31 - 2:20 AM

Marreese Speights filled in at center for Andrew Bogut (illness) on Tuesday but shot just 5-of-14 from the field in 21 minutes, scoring 10 points with eight boards and two turnovers.

Speights' per-minute numbers are impressive offensively but he's been a borderline option over the Warriors' past 15 games, as he's averaging a mere 21 minutes in a reserve role. Bogut is day-to-day so owners shouldn't expect inflated production, but the Warriors' fantasy playoff schedule adds some incentive to keep Speights in standard leagues.
Jan 28 - 2:39 AM

Marreese Speights scored 19 points off the bench in the Warriors' 126-101 win over the Kings on Friday, hitting 8-of-13 shots with six rebounds and one block in 21 minutes.

Speights is a solid late-round value in 9-cat leagues this season, but in 8-cat formats he's hovering at the bottom of the top-150. Still, owners know what they're going to get with him on most nights and that makes him a serviceable low-end big man in 12-team formats.
Jan 24 - 5:04 AM

Marreese Speights was headed for a disastrous line on Wednesday, but got hot in the final minutes and salvaged a line of nine points, two rebounds, a block and a rare 3-pointer in just eight minutes.

He got hot in garbage time and the desperation 3-pointer was the icing on the cake. The Warriors need Speights down the stretch in order to keep Andrew Bogut healthy and rested, and Speights was just getting a rest of his own tonight. He's not a must-own or must-start player, but he's probably worth keeping around with Bogut's health always in question, as well as the Warriors' strong weekly schedule the rest of the way.
Jan 22 - 1:59 AM

Marreese Speights scored 15 points off the bench on Saturday with five rebounds, three assists and one block against the Rockets.

He played 20 minutes and he might see his playing time dip into the teens now that the Warriors are healthy again. Speights has one of the highest usage rates among bench bigs, so he should still be able to muster up some value for owners in deeper leagues.
Jan 18 - 12:37 AM

Marreese Speights will draw the start on Saturday against Houston, while Andrew Bogut will come off the bench.

Bogut was rested on Friday, so this may simply be an attempt to monitor his minutes. Speights has been able to contribute even in limited minutes this season, so if you're in need of a big give him a look.
Jan 17 - 7:33 PM

Marreese Speights started with Andrew Bogut out on Friday against the Thunder, scoring 20 points on 9-of-16 shooting with seven rebounds, four assists and one steal in 28 minutes.

Speights has standalone value as a low-end big man but obviously he can get a little loose when Bogut is out. Give him a look.
Jan 17 - 12:30 AM

Marreese Speights returned to a bench role vs. Utah on Tuesday, scoring 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one block.

He racked up four personal fouls but still logged 22 minutes, and should average 20-25 per game due to the fact that starting C Andrew Bogut is on a minute-limit. Speights' efficient scoring makes him a borderline option in most fantasy formats, but he's not a must-own player while Bogut is healthy.
