Stephen Curry finished Tuesday's victory in L.A. with 27 points, four 3-pointers, four assists, one steal and one ankle-breaking move against Chris Paul.

This is a somewhat pedestrian line for Steph, who is one of the leading MVP candidates. We just needed an excuse to proliferate his ridiculous juke-move in the second quarter, which sent elite defender CP3 sprawling onto his backside while Curry sank a jumper from the corner. Follow the link below, and enjoy.

David Lee made another fill-in start at PF on Tuesday, finishing with 17 points on 8-of-12 shooting with seven boards, one assist and zero defensive stats in 30 minutes.

Draymond Green was resting a shin injury and may miss another game during the Warriors' back-to-back set on Saturday and Sunday. Lee was solid offensively tonight but he's yet to take advantage of his rare starts this season -- in three games he's now averaging a mediocre 14.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.3 blocks in 27.3 minutes. That's not enough juice to squeeze value out of Lee in standard leagues.
Apr 1 - 2:01 AM

Andrew Bogut had six points on 3-of-5 shooting, nine rebounds, five assists and one block in 30 minutes vs. DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers on Tuesday.

Bogut was excited for a bigger offensive role under Steve Kerr this season, yet his current usage rate of 13.1 percent is the second-lowest of his 10-year NBA career. He's averaging under 25 minutes per game in March but is still racking up top-100 value thanks to solid rebounds (8.4), assists (2.3), steals (0.7) and blocks (1.6). That comes with excellent 58.2 percent FG shooting, and his miserable FT shooting (33.3) is so lightly weighted that it hardly affects fantasy owners -- he's attempted three free throws all month. He's a solid option when active, but keep in mind he could be rested during back-to-back games this weekend.
Apr 1 - 1:59 AM

Andre Iguodala had six points, seven assists and one steal in 29 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, helping Golden State earn a 110-106 win vs. the Clippers.

The Warriors play games on Thursday, Saturday and Sunday this week and it would be surprising if Iguodala doesn't sit out one game -- he rested on Saturday and has had three precautionary DNP-CDs in the past month. Harrison Barnes, Leandro Barbosa and Shaun Livingston should all pick up extra minutes of Iguodala sits out this weekend.
Apr 1 - 1:57 AM

Harrison Barnes finished Tuesday's feisty 110-106 win in L.A. with only one point, seven rebounds and two assists, shooting 0-of-7 from the field in 25 minutes.

This marks the third time all season that Barnes has gone without a field goal, and it's even more disappointing since Draymond Green (shin, rest) was unavailable tonight. Barnes has three games remaining this week and could see his role increase if Golden State rests key players, particularly during their back-to-back set this weekend. He's a viable late-round option despite tonight's dud.
Apr 1 - 1:55 AM

David Lee will be in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

Lee will replace Draymond Green (rest) in the starting lineup, and he's good for some points and rebounds, although he really doesn't do much else. Through two starts this season, Lee has put in averages of 12.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game on 50.0 percent shooting from the field. He can be viewed as a low-end streamer option in deep leagues, but he's not a great play in daily leagues.
Mar 31 - 3:13 PM

Draymond Green (rest) will not play Tuesday vs. the Clippers.

David Lee will draw the start in Green's place tonight, and he makes for a decent streamer option in deep leagues for those seeking some points and rebounds. Marreese Speights will also have the opportunity for some extended minutes off the bench with Green out. Head coach Steve Kerr said that Green would play tonight if the game meant anything, but with the No. 1 seed wrapped up, he’s going to get Green some rest. He hinted that Green may even sit Thursday vs. the Suns, so we’ll be watching this situation closely. Stay tuned.
Mar 31 - 3:05 PM

Draymond Green (shin) may miss Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

Green has been dealing with inflammation in his shins and with the top seed in the Western Conference already clinched, there's a chance that he sits for the second consecutive game on Tuesday. We'll update this item as more information becomes available, but David Lee would likely get another start if Green sits while Marreese Speights would also see a small minutes bump.
Mar 31 - 9:13 AM

Updating a previous item, Draymond Green (shin, Blake-itis) jokingly said he's going to sit out on Tuesday because he has "Blake-itis."

When it comes to quotes about the Clippers, it's hard to top some of the things Draymond Green has said -- that would be a fantastic series in the second round, by the way. Green and the Warriors do get three more games this week, but one would think Green will miss one of the road-road back-to-back games on Saturday and Sunday. His owners should only plan on having him for two games at most.
Mar 30 - 2:59 PM

Draymond Green is dealing with a shin issue and it could keep him out of action on Tuesday against the Clippers.

It sounds like he's not going to get a "Cool Story, Glenn" game. Green missed Saturday due to rest and coach Steve Kerr said his star PF is banged up, so his fantasy owners can probably expect him to miss at least two more games the rest of the way. With Green out, David Lee and James Michael McAdoo would get his minutes.
Mar 30 - 2:42 PM

Stephen Curry made 8-of-13 from the field with six 3-pointers for 25 points during a 108-95 win in Milwaukee on Saturday, adding four rebounds, six assists, one steal and six turnovers.

He didn't have a great first half and was in foul trouble, but Curry and the Warriors turned it on in the third quarter -- that's been their calling card lately. They won their ninth consecutive game and have clinched the top seed in the Western Conference with their 60th win. Curry has been flat-out ridiculous from deep over his last five, making 5.4 treys per game on 61.4 percent from that range. He has to be the favorite for MVP. Meanwhile it's probably safe to say Steve Kerr made the right call with the Warriors winning their 60th game of the season on the same night the Knicks lost their 60th.
Mar 28 - 11:23 PM

David Lee played 21 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday with 12 points, four rebounds, one assist and two turnovers.

The Warriors blew out the Bucks, so Lee didn't play in the fourth quarter. Draymond Green is dealing with some minutes injuries, so he could get another game of rest. Lee won't be worth owning while Dray is active, though.
Mar 28 - 11:17 PM

Brandon Rush left Saturday's game vs. the Bucks due to an eye contusion but he has since returned to action

Rush hasn't been in the rotation this season and constantly picks up DNPs, but he got a chance to play with the Warriors resting some guys. We will let you know if his eye becomes an issue, but he belongs on the wire in almost all leagues.
Mar 28 - 9:09 PM

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes and Andrew Bogut are all starting on Saturday.

This was as expected with the Warriors not pulling any shady business on resting guys.
Mar 28 - 8:14 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said Draymond Green (rest, out Saturday) has been dealing with nagging injuries and the three days off should help.

Green has started all 72 games before Saturday and he certainly doesn't play half speed or shy away from contact. Green will have a chance to sit in another game with next weekend's road-road back-to-back as a possible time to do so.
