Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Klay Thompson notched his third career double-double on Sunday with 23 points, 10 rebounds, two steals, one assist and one block in 33 minutes of action.

The Warriors fell into an early hole vs. the Sixers on Saturday, but tonight it was their inability to hold the lead that nearly cost them -- they held on to beat the Nets, 118-111. Klay stepped up offensively with Kevin Durant (ankle) out tonight, finishing 10-of-17 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line, and he's on cruise control for fantasy purposes.

Zaza Pachulia had three points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 14 minutes of action vs. Brooklyn on Sunday.

The veteran has started all 17 games for Golden State this season, but he's averaging just 14.3 minutes and has been a liability in almost every fantasy format.
Nov 19 - 9:03 PM

Draymond Green chipped in seven rebounds, eight assists, two blocks, two steals and one 3-pointer on Sunday, but he made just 1-of-8 field goals to finish with five points in 35 minutes.

Green is now averaging 8.0 points in his previous three games. Fantasy owners aren't complaining, however, because he continues to stuff the stat sheet elsewhere -- on the season, he's averaging 7.6 rebounds, 6.6 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.2 triples and 1.1 steals. His unique talent seems designed for category-based leagues.
Nov 19 - 9:03 PM

Andre Iguodala scored a season-high 12 points in 32 minutes on Sunday, going 4-of-11 from the field with five rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers and one block.

This was the second time all season that Iguodala has scored double-digit points, and his playing time was also a season-high due to Kevin Durant's absence with a sprained ankle. Durant is day-to-day, so this doesn't have any lasting repercussions.
Nov 19 - 9:01 PM

Playing in the second of back-to-back games, Stephen Curry lit up the Nets for 39 points (14-of-24 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs), 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and four 3-pointers.

Kevin Durant (ankle) was out tonight and Steph took full advantage of the expanded offensive role -- he's now scored 30+ points in consecutive games for the first time all season. Curry is flirting with the No. 1 spot in roto leagues, and he joins Nikola Jokic are the only players with top-10 fantasy value who are playing under 33.0 minutes per game.
Nov 19 - 9:01 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

Kevin Durant (sprained left ankle) is "not sure" if he'll be ready to play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.

Steve Kerr said Durant's absence on Sunday was mostly a precaution, and it's hard to imagine KD sitting out vs. his former team, but we'll have more clarity on his status in the coming days. Omri Casspi started on Sunday and will benefit the most if Durant misses more games, while guys like Steph Curry and Klay Thompson would also enjoy increased usage.
Nov 19 - 7:16 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.

David Lee has officially retired from the NBA.

Lee was a double-double machine in his prime, spending most of his career in New York and Golden State, and earning an All-Star appearance with each of those teams. He was there for the entire rebuild with the Warriors and didn't make any issue when he lost his spot in the starting five to Draymond Green as the Dubs went for their first championship in 40 years. Lee was a true professional through-and-through and a former first-round stud in fantasy hoops.

Kevin Durant will sit out against the Nets on Sunday with a left ankle sprain.

This is the second night of a back-to-back set and the Nets are one of the weakest teams in the NBA after losing Jeremy Lin and D'Angelo Russell to injuries, and head coach Steve Kerr described KD's absence from tonight's game as precautionary more than anything else. He apparently injured his ankle in the first quarter on Saturday but finished with 27 points and a full stat line, and Kerr is confident he'll be ready for Wednesday's game in OKC. With Durant out, Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson should both get more looks and pretty much every rotation player gets a bump.
Nov 19 - 11:49 AM

Stephen Curry scored 35 points with five rebounds, five assists, one block and four 3-pointers during a 124-116 win over the 76ers on Saturday.

It's not often you seen Steph have multiple-game slumps, and he bounced back quickly from his nine-point dud in Boston on Thursday. The Warriors were hit in the mouth in the first quarter as they gave up 47 points in that frame, but were still able to overcome a 22-point deficit at half. They put up 47 of their own in the third and this game became the seventh time in the Shot Clock Era that two teams both scored at least 47 points in a quarter in the same game. Curry was a big part of that with his 20 points in that quarter to get to their fifth 40-point quarter on the year. Steph gets the Nets on Sunday, so he should be in for another big night.
Nov 18 - 11:42 PM

Kevin Durant scored 27 points with five rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 33 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He's on another one of his 20-plus scoring streaks with seven straight, but the non-scoring stuff is the most impressive part of his stat lines. In those games, Durant averaged 24.4 points, 6.1 boards, 5.1 assists, 2.0 blocks, 0.9 steals and 1.9 treys on 53.4 FG% and 94.1 FT%. KD also wanted to win this game badly, but not for the reasons you might think. "We didn't want to lose to these guys. Especially Joel [Embiid]," Durant said. "He would've went straight to Twitter and talked [expletive]." We'll have to wait until next year to see what The Process has for the Warriors. Until then, KD is in the mix to be fantasy's top player.
Nov 18 - 11:36 PM

David West made 7-of-8 from the field for 14 points against the 76ers on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 13 minutes.

He's going to go down as one of the best mid-range shooting bigs of all time and that worked for him again today. West has played well lately, making 77.3 percent from the field over his last five with averages of 7.6 points, 4.8 boards, 2.4 assists and 0.6 steals. We may not see Jordan Bell for a little while with West playing like this. He's not really worth adding unless you're streaming on Sunday against the Nets.
Nov 18 - 11:29 PM

Kevin Durant scored a game-high 24 points during a 92-88 loss to the Celtics on Thursday, adding three rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He missed a key mid-range shot late in the game to lead to the loss. On the whole, the blocks were there yet again and Durant continues to show how he can be a plus defender. Blocks aren't the best way to measure defense, but KD comes in at 94th percentile at around-the-rim defense, and he's only allowed one make on 22 attempts as the defender with the shot clock under four seconds (Synergy). Oh and KD is on pace for his most efficient offensive season of his career. He'll be in the mix as fantasy's top player all season.
Nov 16 - 11:09 PM

Stephen Curry did not fare well in his return from a one-game absence, making 3-of-14 from the field for a season-low nine points with six rebounds, five assists, four steals, four turnovers and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

The Celtics were aggressive on defense and made him work on offense, which led to Curry making just 1-of-8 in the first half. He was also in some foul trouble with his fourth foul coming with nine minutes left in the third quarter and coach Steve Kerr pulled him -- Kerr doesn't usually pull Curry for fouls because he doesn't commit many. It's hard to chalk up this bad game to his thigh issue, so just expect him to turn it around against Ben Simmons and the 76ers on Saturday. That should be fun.
