Omri Casspi scored 11 points with nine rebounds, three assists and one triple in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Monday.
He started tonight along with Jordan Bell with Draymond Green (shoulder) and Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) out, but both players are day-to-day and the Warriors only have one more game this week. Casspi can be relevant as a punt in DFS when the Warriors rest several players, but he doesn’t belong on season-long rosters. Dec 12 - 12:50 AM

Date:

Omri Casspi scored two points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 17 minutes against the Hornets on Wednesday.

If Draymond Green (shoulder) does need to miss more time, Casspi should stick in the rotation as a combo forward. However, Dray shouldn't be out too long, so there's very little incentive to adding Casspi in most leagues.
Dec 7 - 12:39 AM

Omri Casspi came off the bench on Sunday for 10 points and five rebounds, making 3-of-6 field goals and 4-of-4 free throws in 25 minutes.

Andre Iguodala (knee) was out tonight but it doesn't sound like he'll miss much time. According to Steve Kerr, "[Iguodala] is getting older and we have to give him some rest." Casspi's minutes could spike on random nights when Iguodala or Kevin Durant are rested, but he's tough to trust in most fantasy leagues.
Dec 3 - 9:54 PM

Omri Casspi produced nine points, four rebounds, one 3-pointer, two assists, two blocks and one turnover through 25 minutes as a starter on Saturday.

He’s played well as a starter this season with averages of 9.0 points, 6.0 boards, 2.5 dimes, 1.0 steal and 1.5 blocks per contest, so if Kevin Durant (ankle) is again forced to spend Monday’s game on the sidelines, Casspi will be someone to consider throwing out there as a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Nov 26 - 12:12 AM

Omri Casspi is starting again for Kevin Durant (ankle) against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He played 25 minutes on Friday and didn't even play in the fourth quarter. He is probably going to be in the same neighborhood tonight because Draymond Green will be back to take on most of the power forward minutes. Casspi is a decent DFS stream tonight, assuming Andre Iguodala is a go.
Nov 25 - 6:50 PM

Omri Casspi scored six points with four rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 25 minutes during a start against the Bulls on Friday.

That's some pretty decent usage and he didn't have to play in garbage time. With Kevin Durant (ankle) doubtful for Saturday, Casspi gets a revenge game against the Pelicans on Saturday -- the Pelicans waived him last year. He could be a sneaky DFS play or stream, assuming KD is out.
Nov 25 - 1:13 AM

Omri Casspi is starting against the Bulls on Saturday.

Kevin Durant is resting his ankle on the front end of a back-to-back set, but it would be very surprising if he wasn't back in the lineup on Saturday. Casspi had 12 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 23 minutes in his last start, so he's on the punt radar in DFS.
Nov 24 - 8:55 PM

Omri Casspi started Sunday's game in place of Kevin Durant (ankle), hitting 6-of-10 shots to finish with 12 points, eight rebounds, two blocks and one assist in 23 minutes.

Casspi has fit in seamlessly with the Warriors this season, but tonight's starting gig was situational. Steve Kerr strongly suggested that Durant will return vs. the Thunder on Wednesday, although Durant himself said he's "not sure" if he'll be ready to go. Either way, Casspi is waiver-wire fodder in standard leagues.
Nov 19 - 9:00 PM

Omri Casspi will move into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Nets, with Kevin Durant (ankle) unavailable.

This will be Casspi's first start of the season, and he'll likely be splitting minutes with Andre Iguodala and Nick Young at the three-spot tonight, but at the very least he should be good for some points and triples. Steve Kerr said he was confident that Durant will be back in action for Wednesday's game in OKC, so Casspi's job as a starter should be short-lived.

Omri Casspi posted 13 points, three rebounds, three blocks, two steals, one assist and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

The journeyman forward was gifted extra minutes tonight for a few reasons -- Kevin Durant (thigh) was out, and the Warriors turned it into a blowout after halftime. Durant is day-to-day and Casspi's season-long production has been irrelevant in fantasy leagues. Avoid him.
Nov 9 - 1:42 AM

Omri Casspi made 2-of-3 from the field, and 3-of-4 from the line, to finish with eight points, three rebounds, an assist, a steal and a blocked shot across 13 minutes Friday against the Wizards.

Casspi was not slowed by the ankle sprain which had him sidelined last weekend. He played extra minutes in this one once Draymond Green was ejected due to a shoving match with Bradley Beal. Casspi hasn't played many meaningful minutes to date and he can mostly be avoided outside of the deepest fantasy leagues.
Oct 28 - 2:27 AM

Omri Casspi returned from his ankle injury and played six minutes in a blowout win over the Mavs on Monday.

He didn't post a single stat in his six minutes and is barely a part of rotation for the Warriors. In fact, the lopsided score is likely the only reason he played at all.
Oct 23 - 11:51 PM

Omri Casspi (left ankle sprain) is available for Monday's game vs. Dallas after a two-game absence.

He may not be in the rotation, so he has no business being anywhere near a fantasy lineup while the Warriors are healthy.
Oct 23 - 1:02 PM

Omri Casspi (left ankle sprain) is probable for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

Casspi gives the Warriors' bench unit some extra offensive punch as they look to even their record at 2-2, but his availability shouldn't impact fantasy lineups.
Oct 22 - 7:14 PM

Omri Casspi (ankle) is out against the Grizzlies.

The Warriors will be OK and could still go 11 deep. Casspi has very little fantasy value.
