Marreese Speights had 10 points in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with five rebounds, one assist and two blocks.
He has a very high usage rate and should be able to score in the teens while Andrew Bogut (knee) is out. Bogut could miss up to a month, so that means the Speights Cowboy is worth a grab in standard leagues. Some people call him Marreese. Dec 19 - 2:02 AM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 18 points, eight rebounds and two blocks on 7-of-14 shooting in 26 minutes on Tuesday.

With news that Andrew Bogut's knee injury might be more serious than we were initially led to believe, Picking up Speights might be a good idea. He usually gets just 19 minutes a game, but saw more than that tonight and could be a very effective fantasy player if Bogut is going to miss extended time.

Mo Speights came off the bench for 15 points, eight rebounds and a block in 20 minutes on Wednesday.

Festus Ezeli started at center and had seven points and three rebounds, but any time Andrew Bogut (knee) is out, Speights is the guy you'll want to plug-and-play.
Dec 11 - 1:59 AM

Marreese Speights scored 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting with seven rebounds, one steal and one block in 21 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Wolves.

If you've been riding Speights this keeps him on your good side before David Lee eventually returns to dent his value.
Dec 9 - 1:04 AM

Mo Speights was given a flop warning for flopping against the Bulls on Saturday.

The next violation will result in a fine for Speights, but it will not impact his fantasy value. Those relying on Speights for production need to keep a careful eye on David Lee's (hamstring) return.
Dec 8 - 11:11 AM

Marreese Speight scored 12 points with six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block against the Pelicans on Thursday.

The usage is still out of control, making 5-of-14 from the field in his 17 minutes. Speights will likely take a hit once David Lee (hamstring) returns, so there's little reason to add him if he's still floating around on your wire.
Dec 5 - 1:36 AM

Marreese Speights continued his blistering pace on Sunday, scoring 11 points and grabbing 12 rebounds with two blocks shots in just 19 minutes of action.

Speights shot only 4-of-14 from the field but he has coach Steve Kerr's complete faith, and has been one of the better reserves (particularly among big men) in the NBA this season. It's hard to imagine him keeping up top-120 fantasy value in just 16 minutes per game, as he has through the Warriors' first 15 games, but owners should just ride him until he cools off.
Nov 30 - 7:21 PM

Marreese Speights looked like an All-Star against the Hornets on Friday, scoring 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in just 24 minutes.

He attempted 20 shots tonight and made the most of his four offensive boards. Speights has seen a slight increase in minutes to 20.0 per game over his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.6 blocks. David Lee (hamstring) is getting close to a return, so it's hard to be too excited about picking Speights up as anything more than a short-term, deep league asset.
Nov 28 - 10:02 PM

Marreese Speights followed up Sunday's 28-point game with eight points (4-of-5 FGs) and five rebounds vs. the Heat on Tuesday.

Andrew Bogut (eye) missed most of Sunday's game but he was back in action tonight, which limited Speights to his usual 15 minutes of action. He scored double-digit points in four straight games prior to Tuesday but it will be hard for him to keep up that pace as the Warriors' backup center. Owners in standard leagues shouldn't hang onto him if there's a free agent with more upside.
Nov 25 - 10:22 PM

After scoring a season-high 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting during Sunday's win in Oklahoma City, Marreese Speights thanked Thunder center Kendrick Perkins.

Speights almost single-handedly kept the Warriors in the game after Andrew Bogut left with an orbital contusion, and afterward coach Steve Kerr could only say, "Mo Speights, again, is ridiculous." He used the spotlight to take a shot at his adversary Perkins, saying, "[Perkins] thinks he’s a tough guy, but at the end of the day, his game is terrible. He always has something to say to me, every time we play against each other. It always gets me going, so: ‘Shout out to Perkins’ for helping me get this game."
Nov 24 - 1:27 AM

Marreese Speights caught fire once Andrew Bogut went down with an orbital contusion on Sunday, scoring a season-high 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting in just 25 minutes of action.

Speights has been a scoring machine off Golden State's bench this year, averaging 10.2 points in just 13.3 minutes per game. He added seven rebounds and two assists tonight, without any steals or blocks, and should be a terrific fill-in fantasy option if Bogut's injury costs him any games.
Nov 23 - 10:10 PM

Steve Kerr said Marreese Speights is "going to play a lot" for the Warriors.

Speights has seized the backup center role and has run with it. "He's earned that backup role," Kerr said. Speights dropped 24 points and nine rebounds in just 20 minutes (8-of-11 shooting) against the Lakers on Sunday, and he's playing with extreme confidence under his new head coach. "He's my new favorite player, Mo Speights," Kerr added. Speights improved his work ethic during the offseason, and that work has translated to results for both Speights and the Warriors.
Nov 17 - 11:25 AM

Marreese Speights blew up in Sunday's easy win vs. the Lakers, scoring 24 points on 8-of-11 FGs and 8-of-8 FTs with nine rebounds in just 20 minutes of action.

Speights tied his season high with 16 points in the first half alone, benefiting from the Lakers' utter lack of interior defense. He didn't have any assists, steals or blocks tonight, and is only worth a look if you need scoring and rebounding in deep leagues.
Nov 17 - 12:14 AM

Marreese Speights gave the Warriors a huge lift off of the bench on Saturday, finishing with 13 points, six boards, two assists and a steal in just 15 minutes.

While these are fantastic numbers for such limited minutes, owners need to be aware of the fact that David Lee (hamstring) should be back very shortly. In the meantime, deep league owners can continue to roll the dice on Speights for short-term value, as he has been excellent under new coach Steve Kerr.
Nov 16 - 10:16 AM

Marreese Speights came off the bench and chipped in 16 points and five rebounds on 8-of-13 shooting in 18 minutes on Wednesday.

Temper your expectations on Speights, as he'll play a smaller role once David Lee is back from his hamstring injury. But Speights was quite nice off the bench tonight.
