Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Stephen Curry made only one of his 10 shots from beyond the arc in a 106-101 win in Charlotte on Friday, scoring 26 points with four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks.

He was 8-of-10 from inside the arc and the two blocks tonight made this almost like a Bizarro Steph line. Curry made an absurd 14-of-19 from beyond the arc in his previous two games, so the law of averages had its say tonight. He's probably going to hit a half-dozen on Sunday against the Pistons.
Nov 28 - 10:14 PM

Draymond Green just missed a double-double against the Hornets on Friday with nine points, 10 boards, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes.

He could lose a handful of minutes once David Lee (hamstring), but he should still be in the high 20s and put up value worthy of ownership in standard leagues. Green can fill a stat sheet a lot better than David Lee and is a better fit, especially since he's vastly improved as a pick-and-roll player.
Nov 28 - 10:11 PM

Klay Thompson made just 7-of-22 from the field for 17 points with five rebounds, four assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers in 35 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He wasn't quite as aggressive tonight and settled for a lot of contested jumpers. Thompson is in a bit of a slump over his last five, averaging 17.4 points, 4.4 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 triples on 40.7 percent from the field. Those are still must-start numbers, obviously.
Nov 28 - 10:07 PM

Marreese Speights looked like an All-Star against the Hornets on Friday, scoring 27 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in just 24 minutes.

He attempted 20 shots tonight and made the most of his four offensive boards. Speights has seen a slight increase in minutes to 20.0 per game over his last five, averaging 17.6 points, 4.6 boards, 1.4 assists and 0.6 blocks. David Lee (hamstring) is getting close to a return, so it's hard to be too excited about picking Speights up as anything more than a short-term, deep league asset.
Nov 28 - 10:02 PM

David Lee (hamstring) will not play Friday vs. the Hornets, as expected.

He was doubtful headed into this one, so this news isn't very surprising. Lee is targeting a return for Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans, but he'll likely be on a minutes restriction upon his return. Stay tuned.
Nov 28 - 6:23 PM

Leandro Barbosa (knee) will play Friday vs. the Hornets.

Barbosa is averaging 6.3 points and not much else over 15.4 minutes of action off the bench this season, and he's simply not worth using in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire.
Nov 28 - 5:37 PM

Leandro Barbosa (knee) is questionable to face the Hornets on Friday.

He has only been going through 3-on-3 in practice and we don't expect him to do much. It's his birthday today, but fantasy owners will not want to ride that narrative even if he plays. Barbosa has very little fantasy value.
Nov 28 - 4:25 PM

Head coach Steve Kerr is considering David Lee (hamstring) doubtful to play Friday or Sunday.

Lee will most likely return for one of the Warriors upcoming home games, either Tuesday vs. Orlando, or Thursday vs. New Orleans. With the Warriors currently sitting on a record of 12-2, and Draymond Green excelling as the starting power forward, there's just no need for Lee to rush a return. He'll likely be eased back into the rotation upon his return, and there are no guarantees he will take the starting job away from Green.

Steve Kerr praised Stephen Curry's play on the defensive end during a recent interview.

"I've seen really good defense," Kerr said of Curry. "That's the thing that's impressed me the most is Steph's commitment on that end. Offensively, I already knew what he could do just watching the highlights the last couple of years. I think he's become a really well-rounded All-Star. He was already an All-Star, but now I think he's an All-Star at both ends of the floor." The Dubs currently rank third in defensive efficiency vs. the point guard position, and Curry is hitting career-highs in points (24.2), 3-pointers (3.5), steals (2.1), and field goal percentage (49.8). He's currently the second-best player in fantasy hoops, and has joined the conversation as a potential MVP-candidate.

Stephen Curry followed up Tuesday's season-high 40-point game with 28 points, six 3-pointers, five rebounds and eight assists in just 24 minutes vs. the Magic on Wednesday.

Curry made 9-of-13 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with just one turnover in the Warriors' easy road win. He is in the mix for top fantasy honors but Anthony Davis still has an edge on him, especially in 9-cat leagues where Curry's 3.5 turnovers per game take a heavy toll.
Nov 26 - 10:13 PM

Andrew Bogut filled up the stat sheet again vs. Orlando, scoring six points with 12 rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 24 minutes of action.

Golden State extended its impressive win streak to seven games with the victory, and Bogut continues to be a steal for his fantasy owners. The Warriors have a phenomenal fantasy-playoff schedule, which gives owners some incentive to keep Bogut in the hopes that he can stay healthy after many injury-plagued seasons.
Nov 26 - 10:13 PM

Brandon Rush logged 21 minutes off the Warriors' bench on Wednesday but finished scoreless with just two rebounds and one assist to his credit.

Rush earned more playing time with Leandro Barbosa (knee) unavailable, and his role will fluctuate depending upon nightly matchups. He's scored a grand total of four points in 78 minutes this season, which tells fantasy owners all they need to know.
Nov 26 - 10:12 PM

Shaun Livingston scored a season-high 15 points on 7-of-10 shooting in Orlando on Wednesday, rounding out his line with three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Livingston's 27 minutes off the bench were also a season high and he benefited from both the lopsided score and the absence of Leandro Barbosa (knee). He's been a liability in all fantasy formats this year, and will remain so as long as Stephen Curry is healthy.
Nov 26 - 10:12 PM

Draymond Green had a quiet night on Wednesday with just 10 points, two 3-pointers, four rebounds and one assist in 22 minutes during a road win vs. the Magic.

The Warriors were playing the second game of a back-to-back set on the road and Steve Kerr warned beforehand that he hoped to "rely heavily" on his bench. It wasn't a total wash for Green's fantasy owners, who should be confident in his outlook despite the impending return of David Lee (hamstring).
Nov 26 - 10:11 PM

Andrew Bogut is in the starting lineup against the Magic on Wednesday.

Coach Steve Kerr did say he wants to take it easy on his starting unit tonight, so Bogut owners should temper expectations. Marreese Speights should still be a decent play, but not considering there are so many games in the NBA tonight.
