Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Andrew Bogut (knee) had platelet-rich plasma treatment on Wednesday and will have another treatment in one week.

Players can return from PRP somewhat quickly, so this news doesn't necessarily mean Bogut is out for a week. He is out Thursday against the Thunder and should be considered doubtful for the weekend. Marreese Speights and Draymond Green will do most of the heavy lifting up front.
Dec 17 - 9:13 PM

Andrew Bogut (knee) will not play against the Thunder on Thursday.

He has runner's knee and the Warriors will likely take it easy on him. Bogut has been hurt for much of his career and they're certainly going to want him healthy for the playoffs. He's still worth owning in standard leagues. Marreese Speights gets a bump while Festus Ezeli starts again.
Dec 17 - 6:32 PM

David Lee (hamstring) and Andrew Bogut (knee) will not play on Thursday against the Thunder.

There is still no timetable for a return on Lee and the Warriors are in no rush to bring him back. He took part in some 3-on-3 at practice last week, but the team is unlikely to give him regular minutes until 2015. He's a low-upside stash in standard leagues. Draymond Green and Marreese Speights are good to go.
Dec 17 - 6:28 PM

Ognjen Kuzmic was assigned to the NBA D-League on Wednesday.

He is not close to being in the rotation in Golden State, so the big man will have to garner as much experience as he can in the D-League. Kuzmic can be safely ignored in all formats.
Dec 17 - 12:49 PM

Marreese Speights came off the bench for 18 points, eight rebounds and two blocks on 7-of-14 shooting in 26 minutes on Tuesday.

With news that Andrew Bogut's knee injury might be more serious than we were initially led to believe, Picking up Speights might be a good idea. He usually gets just 19 minutes a game, but saw more than that tonight and could be a very effective fantasy player if Bogut is going to miss extended time.
Dec 16 - 11:26 PM

Klay Thompson hit 8-of-16 shots for 22 points, two rebounds, a steal, a block and four more 3-pointers as the Warriors finally saw their 16-game winning streak come to an end after a 105-98 loss at Memphis.

While you won't often hear Thompson's name in the MVP conversation, it should probably be included in a list that will include John Wall, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James, James Harden, Marc Gasol, Anthony Davis, Kyle Lowry and a few others. He's averaging 21.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.3 steals, 0.9 blocks and 2.9 3-pointers on the season, with shooting percentages of 45 percent from the floor, 43 percent from downtown and 87 percent from the line. And for good measure, he's also averaging just 2.2 turnovers per game. Stud.
Dec 16 - 11:22 PM

Stephen Curry hit just 9-of-25 shots and 1-of-10 3-pointers for 19 points, seven rebounds, six assists and four steals in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies, the Warriors first since Nov. 11.

The Grizzlies play solid defense and the Warriors could have used Andrew Bogut, or Harrison Barnes being at 100 percent, which would have helped them keep the 16-game winning streak alive. We're not going to lie and say the Warriors are glad the streak is over, but the pressure is off and they'll no longer have to hear about it every day, which has to be viewed as a good thing. With tonight's loss the Warriors are still a league best 21-3.
Dec 16 - 11:15 PM

Draymond Green hit just 2-of-11 shots and was 0-for-4 from downtown in Tuesday's loss at Memphis, which snapped the Dubs' 16-game winning streak.

Despite his dismal shooting, Green was still effective with four points, 10 rebounds, six assists, a steal and a career-high five blocks. He's blocked at least two shots in three straight games and with Andrew Bogut's knee injury suddenly becoming a bigger concern, Green's role is going to remain strong with this team, even when David Lee returns. Hang onto him at all costs.
Dec 16 - 11:11 PM

Harrison Barnes played through his facial injury on Tuesday wearing a mask, and finished with eight points, 11 rebounds, a block and a 3-pointer as the Warriors saw their 16-game winning streak come to a halt in Memphis.

Barnes likely would have fared better without the obtrusive mask, but he was effective while helping to make up for the loss of Andrew Bogut. It looks like Barnes dodged a bullet with this injury and is still a guy we're in favor of owning across the board right now.
Dec 16 - 11:08 PM

Andrew Bogut is dealing with Chondromalacia and a bone edema, and he will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Chondromalacia is basically runner's knee, and a bone edema causes swelling and fluid build-up. Bogut will be re-evaluated on Wednesday, and he's uncertain of his status going forward. He generally takes a bit longer to recover from injuries than your average player, so we'll be considering him on the doubtful side of questionable for Thursday's game vs. OKC. If there's anything positive here, it's that Bogut said surgery would not be required. If he's going to miss time, Marreese Speights is going to quickly become a popular pick up.
Dec 16 - 7:05 PM

Harrison Barnes (mouth) will play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

Barnes will play with a generic protective mask after receiving two stitches to his mouth and said that he will get fitted for a custom mask once the Warriors return home. Fantasy owners can feel free to start Barnes as they normally would, while Andre Iguodala misses out on the value boost he would've had if Barnes missed Tuesday's game.
Dec 16 - 1:27 PM

Andrew Bogut (knee) will miss Tuesday's game against the Grizzlies.

Bogut had been upgraded from out to doubtful on Monday, but the Warriors have decided not to push his return. Festus Ezeli will likely get the start again on Tuesday, while Marreese Speights will be the biggest fantasy beneficiary in a revenge game against his former team.
Dec 16 - 11:05 AM

Andrew Bogut (knee) has been upgraded to doubtful for Tuesday night against the Grizzlies.

It's a good sign that he's not out, but it would be a shock to see him out there. Bogut had his knee drained over the weekend and the Warriors will likely take it easy on him. Marreese Speight should get more looks while Festus Ezeli will start.
Dec 15 - 5:35 PM

Harrison Barnes (mouth) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday, but coach Steve Kerr said he'd be shocked if Barnes doesn't play.

He had a visit to the dentist on Monday and needed two stitches to his mouth, but chances are he'll be able to play. The Warriors only have two games this week, so Barnes isn't an option in weekly leagues. Andre Iguodala would benefit sans Barnes.
Dec 15 - 2:32 PM

Andrew Bogut (knee) will not play on Tuesday against the Grizzlies.

He had his knee drained over the weekend, so that suggests he's going to miss some time. Festus Ezeli will get the starts, but Marreese Speights and Draymond Green will benefit the most. Bogut should be benched in weekly leagues with two games.
