Stephen Curry scored a game-high 25 points against the Suns during a 106-87 win on Saturday with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals, one block and four 3-pointers.

The Suns were making a run to start the fourth quarter and cut the GSW lead to seven, but Curry checked in with seven minutes left and ballooned the lead to 18 in just four minutes of action. The Warriors don't have the best record in the NBA anymore, but they're still arguably the best team in the NBA right now. They'll play the Hawks on Friday, so that should be fun.
Feb 1 - 2:29 AM

Draymond Green had one of his usual stat-stuffing lines against the Suns on Saturday with nine points, 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He destroyed the Suns on defense and the scorekeepers looked to have missed another block on Eric Bledsoe today. Green just won't stop putting up numbers and he's going to be a fantasy stud all season. Even with the Warriors at full strength up front, Green has still been a top-30 fantasy player in the past two weeks.

Festus Ezeli hasn't played for the Warriors since Dec. 23 due to a nagging ankle injury, but he returned to action with Santa Cruz in the D-League on Friday.

While it's great to see him finally over his ankle injury, Ezeli has a long way to go before he will back in the Warriors' rotation. Unless a few injuries open up some playing time, Ezeli can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.

Stephen Curry scored 32 points on 10-of-22 shooting (5-of-11 3PTs, 7-of-9 FTs) with seven rebounds, six assists and three steals in Friday's loss to the Jazz.

Curry has been a bit quiet lately and has seen himself fall behind Anthony Davis for the No. 2 slot (per game) behind James Harden in 8-cat leagues. Perhaps he's ready for his own Klay Thompson night in the near future.
Jan 31 - 2:24 AM

Andrew Bogut played through an illness in Friday's loss to the Jazz, posting four points with four rebounds and four assists in 23 minutes.

Bogut did not have a steal or block and the illness probably got the best of him. Anytime he is on the floor he should be in most lineups.
Jan 31 - 2:21 AM

Marreese Speights was quiet in just 17 minutes of action on Friday, scoring five points on 1-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds and no steals or blocks.

The Warriors struggled in general tonight and that's not going to be the norm, obviously, so owners may want to throw this game out for evaluation purposes. Speights has been a low-end big man in 12-14 team leagues this season.
Jan 31 - 2:20 AM

David Lee managed just seven points, three rebounds, three assists and one block in 25 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Lee started his (delayed) season off with some surprising defensive stats and that just hasn't continued. If he wants to be a popcorn number guy, he'll be relegated to deep leagues only.
Jan 31 - 2:19 AM

Andrew Bogut (illness) will play on Friday vs. the Jazz, as expected.

Bogut was a full participant during Thursday's practice, as well as Friday morning's shootaround, so go ahead and get him active. He will likely slide back into the starting lineup, which would send Marreese Speights to the bench. His return puts a dent in the value of both Speights and David Lee.
Jan 30 - 1:32 PM

Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant, James Harden, LaMarcus Aldridge, Russell Westbrook, Chris Paul and Tim Duncan were named as the Western Conference All-Star Reserves.

It was inevitable the Western Conference would have a couple snubs. DeMarcus Cousins and Damian Lillard have to be the first two guys to come to mind here with Tim Duncan earning his spot more on his career resume. Lillard or Cousins will replace Kobe Bryant (shoulder) while Mike Conley is also another player who is having an All-Star caliber season.

Steve Kerr said he has no plans of resting Stephen Curry.

Why would he? Curry has played 78 games the past two seasons, and aside from the injury-plagued disaster of the 2011-12 season, Steph has managed to stay very healthy throughout his career. He's currently averaging 22.8 points, 8.2 assists, and a career-high 4.7 rebounds and 2.1 steals per game on 49.1 percent shooting. He's in the MVP conversation, and there's no reason to think he'll slow down.
Jan 29 - 4:07 PM

Steve Kerr said that Andrew Bogut (illness) went through practice on Thursday, and that he is good to go for Friday's game against Utah.

Bogut will likely slide back into the starting lineup upon his return, which will hurt the value of both Marreese Speights and David Lee.
Jan 29 - 3:01 PM

James Michael McAdoo will head back to the D-League when his 10-day contract with the Warriors expires.

McAdoo has averaged just 4.7 points and 1.7 rebounds in three games with the Warriors. He'll head back to the D-League in the hopes of hooking on with another team, but the 22-year-old can be ignored by fantasy owners.
Jan 29 - 11:26 AM

Andrew Bogut (illness) is questionable to play against the Jazz on Friday.

He had an illness on Wednesday and was a late scratch. Bogut could miss this game and the Warriors tend to be careful with him. If he's out, David Lee and Marreese Speights benefit.
Jan 28 - 10:40 PM

The Warriors have recalled Ognjen Kuzmic from the D-League.

Kuz is averaging under five minutes in 15 appearances this season. He has no fantasy value, especially with Andrew Bogut is healthy and Festus Ezeli (ankle) nearing a return.
Jan 28 - 7:46 PM

Festus Ezeli is expected to start a brief D-League stint this weekend.

He's been battling an ankle injury and the Warriors will want to ease him back. David Lee played well on Tuesday and Marreese Speights has also been a pleasant surprise, so there's no need to rush Ezeli back. He has no fantasy value right now.
