Omri Casspi (ankle) will be out for around one week, according to Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports.
An MRI confirmed the damage this afternoon. Casspi's ankle sprain looked bad on Friday and he's had a tough season with injuries. The Warriors are going to have to play Nick Young a ton while they'll also have to play more traditional power forwards throughout games. Mar 17 - 4:49 PM

Omri Casspi (ankle) won't travel for Saturday against the Suns.

That would also mean that Casspi would have to travel on his own to San Antonio for Monday. Based on how bad it looked, he's probably out for that game, too. Expect the Warriors to extend Nick Young's minutes while they won't be able to use small-ball fours, which opens up minutes for the power forwards.

Omri Casspi (right ankle) went to the locker room in the second quarter on Friday and he will not return.

Ankle injuries are getting ridiculous in the Bay Area. Casspi rolled his ankle as he stepped on David West's foot, and he was in a lot of pain. He was able to walk to the locker room under his own power, so hopefully he won't be out for long. Nick Young is going to get all he can eat while the other wings play slightly more.
Mar 16 - 11:16 PM

Omri Casspi contributed 15 points, seven rebounds and one assist in 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, making 7-of-8 field goals and 1-of-4 free throws.

The table was set for Casspi due to Golden State's pervasive injuries -- specifically, Draymond Green (shoulder) and David West (arm) both sitting tonight. He made the most of his playing time but could slide back to a marginal 8-12 minute role on Friday -- Green's availability is unclear, but West is expected to return.
Mar 15 - 2:01 AM

Omri Casspi started for Draymond Green (index finger) and hit 7-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 19 points, 10 rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes of Monday's cakewalk over the Suns.

Casspi was great and is worth a streaming/DFS look any time Green or Kevin Durant are sitting out, but Green's expected back on Wednesday. Casspi had scored a total of 30 points since Jan. 1 coming into this one, so he's clearly not someone fantasy owners want to mess with unless we know he's going to start against a bad team.
Feb 13 - 12:51 AM

Omri Casspi will start for Draymond Green (finger) on Monday vs. the Suns.

Coach Steve Kerr expects to have Green back on Wednesday, so Casspi won't have much value beyond tonight. In six starts this season, Casspi averaged 10.7 points, 6.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.7 triples.
Feb 12 - 8:55 PM

Omri Casspi scored four points with four rebounds in 18 minutes against the Bulls on Wednesday.

Technically, he was a DNP-CD on Monday, but coach Steve Kerr held him out because of how sensitive his back injury is. Casspi should stay on the wire in most leagues.

Omri Casspi (back) will play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

Casspi was a healthy scratch on Monday, but Steve Kerr said he'll be getting on the floor tonight. He could pick up a few extra minutes with Andre Iguodala (calf) out, but not enough to make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops.
Jan 17 - 7:33 PM

Omri Casspi will be a healthy scratch on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

The Warriors have their whole roster available, but Casspi will be pushed out of the rotation for this matchup. He's not worth owning while Kevin Durant is healthy.
Jan 15 - 7:43 PM

Omri Casspi (back) is available on Monday vs. the Cavaliers.

The Warriors will need Andre Iguodala's defense on LeBron James, so Casspi is looking at a handful of minutes at best. He's not worth deploying in most leagues while Golden State is healthy.
Jan 15 - 12:16 PM

Omri Casspi (back), Andre Iguodala (hip) and Shaun Livingston (shin) are all probable for Monday's matchup with the Cavs.

Casspi has spent the past two games on the sidelines, but it looks like he'll get back out there for on Monday. However, with the Dubs expected to be at full strength for their MLK Day game, Casspi is unlikely to get enough minutes to matter.

Omri Casspi (back) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Raptors.

Casspi said he felt discomfort in his back while going through his pre-game routine, but he's hopeful he'll be able to get back out there for Monday's game against the Cavs. With him unavailable tonight, Nick Young and Andre Iguodala will split his minutes, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
Jan 13 - 6:36 PM

Omri Casspi (back soreness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Raptors.

Casspi's back has been bothering him for a while, and it forced him to sit out Friday's win over the Bucks. If Casspi is unable to play on Saturday as well, Andre Iguodala and Nick Young would likely see a few extra minutes off the bench.
Jan 13 - 9:34 AM

Omri Casspi (back soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Bucks.

This issue has been lingering for weeks, so the Warriors will play it safe like they normally do. Andre Iguodala and Nick Young may pick up a few extra minutes in his absence.
Jan 12 - 6:15 PM

Omri Casspi (back soreness) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Bucks.

Casspi has been dealing with lingering back soreness for weeks now. If he is unable to play, Andre Iguodala, who is listed as probable, and Nick Young would likely see a few more minutes off the bench.
