Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Festus Ezeli had arthroscopic surgery to clean debris from his left knee and he will be re-evaluated in six weeks.

If he returned to the court in six weeks, there would only be a couple of weeks left in the regular season. Needless to say, it's safe to drop Ezeli in fantasy leagues. The good news is that Ezeli should be ready to go for the postseason, but in the meantime the Warriors will rely on Marreese Speights to fill the void.

Festus Ezeli (knee) is having surgery on his left knee.

It's unknown what the procedure is, but it'll almost certainly keep him out 4-6 weeks or more. With Ezeli out, Marreese Speights should play more in the second unit. Hopefully, the Warriors get their backup big for the playoffs.

Stephen Curry scored a team-high 26 points during a 116-108 win over the Thunder on Saturday, adding six rebounds, 10 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

OKC held Steph in check for just his second game with just one 3-pointer this season. The Warriors were still able to get a win after blowing an 18-point lead and are currently on pace for the best record ever at 46-4. As for Curry, that one trey makes it 121 consecutive games with one triple while he also became No. 3 on the franchise's all-time steals list. He is making last year's MVP run seem ordinary.

Harrison Barnes scored 19 points with four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

Harry B is finally coming around. In his last five, he averaged 12.4 points, 3.6 boards, 1.2 assists and 1.8 treys. Barnes still hasn't climbed into the must-start guy, but the efficiency is coming and he is still a low-end hold.
Feb 7 - 12:38 AM

Draymond Green scored nine points with 14 rebounds and six assists against the Thunder on Saturday.

He was the unsung hero -- he always seems like the unsung hero. Green had the perfect microcosm of his style late in the game with a huge offensive board and eventually hitting Stephen Curry for a layup after killing the 24-second clock. He may have only scored nine points, but the Warriors probably would've lost without him. He's a fantasy stud, as well.

Festus Ezeli (knee) has been ruled out through the All-Star break.

Steve Kerr said the team is being "cautious" and they're bringing in doctors to examine the cartilage issue that has played Ezeli. "Sometimes these things aren't easily diagnosed from an MRI," Kerr said. "That's why we're getting more opinions." Ezeli hasn't been a fantasy asset this season, so his absence shouldn't impact any lineups.
Feb 5 - 6:06 PM

James Michael McAdoo (toe) will not play against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Warriors are finally ruling McAdoo out early now. He is likely out through the break.
Feb 5 - 2:52 PM

Festus Ezeli (knee) and James Michael McAdoo (toe) are out against the Thunder on Saturday.

The loss of Ezeli doesn't sting too badly with Andrew Bogut healthy for this game. Expect to see a lot of the NBA's best lineup when the Warriors go small, so that helps Andre Iguodala slightly. Ezeli isn't a fantasy option.

Stephen Curry scored 51 points during a 134-121 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and a career-high-tying 11 3-pointers.

He was a ridiculous 13-of-14 from the field in the first half with eight treys, which gave him a laughable 121.4 effective field goal percentage. Curry was coming off his worst game of the season from an efficiency standpoint, but he definitely got it right back. He became the first player to hit more than 10 treys in multiple games. Get ready for a great game on Saturday night with Steph vs. Russell Westbrook.
Feb 3 - 11:20 PM

Klay Thompson scored 24 points with four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

It's not often a guy drops six treys in a game and one of his teammates had five more than he did. Thompson certainly has the scoring side down in his last four with an absurd 76.1 true shooting percentage and a 31.9 usage rate. That led to averages of 33.8 points, 3.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 5.5 treys on 60.2 percent from the field. Klay is being overshadowed big time.
Feb 3 - 11:10 PM

Draymond Green logged his 10th triple-double of the season during a win over the Wizards on Wednesday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and five blocks.

That's back-to-back triple-doubles for Green and he managed to keep his lead over Russell Westbrook, who dropped his eighth triple-double on the season tonight. Green's blocks had also dropped in each full month this year, so he got a nice start there in February. He's one of a kind.
Feb 3 - 11:04 PM

James Michael McAdoo (toe) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards.

There's a reason why his ownership percentage in Yahoo! Leagues is at zero. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 2 - 5:51 PM

Kevon Looney has been called up from his D-League stint, and he'll be available to play Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

With both James Michael McAdoo (toe) and Festus Ezeli (knee) set to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, Looney could see some limited minutes off the bench tomorrow, although he won't receive enough playing time to matter in any league.

Harrison Barnes said that he feels he's playing his way back into game shape and is starting to find his rhythm again after spending all of December on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

"I’m feeling good," Barnes said. "I’m just getting back to playing into game shape and getting my rhythm back. I feel like I’m getting to the point where I can go out there and contribute and not have any pain… I’m still looking to get my explosion back and not have any pain." Barnes hasn't exactly hit the ground running since returning from the injury, as he shot just 42.4 percent from the field through the month of January. However, he has mid-round upside, so Barnes warrants a hold in standard formats.
Feb 2 - 5:42 PM

James Michael McAdoo (toe) is doubtful to play the Wizards on Wednesday.

He hasn't played in a month, so don't expect to see him out there. McAdoo isn't in the rotation anyways and is not a fantasy asset.
