Omri Casspi (left ankle) is questionable to face the Grizzlies on Saturday.

He hasn't gone through practice yet and the Warriors still were able to go 11 deep on Friday against the Pelicans. The Warriors are in no rush to bring Casspi back.
Oct 21 - 3:03 PM

Shaun Livingston was scoreless in 12 minutes in Friday's win at Golden State, his 700th career NBA appearance.

Livingston was able to contribute with three rebounds and an assist, but the milestone game wasn't particularly memorable from a fantasy perspective. He'll need to do much better if he wants to keep Nick Young from carving into his minutes further. For now he remains useful only in the very deepest of fantasy leagues.
Oct 21 - 1:19 AM

Andre Iguodala (back) was able to play in Friday's game at New Orleans, finishing with seven points, seven rebounds and four assists.

Iguodala logged 21 minutes while turning it over just once, and his return meant Nick Young was limited to just seven minutes off the pine and Jordan Bell saw the floor for just five minutes. Iggy continues to be a valuable contributor off the bench for the defending champs.
Oct 21 - 1:07 AM

Draymond Green (knee) finished with 10 points, seven assists and four rebounds across 29 minutes on Friday at New Orleans.

Green took a shot to the left knee at the end of the third quarter in Tuesday's opener, but he didn't show any ill effects of the ailment against the Pels. In fact, he was his normal, ornery self, getting under the skin of DeMarcus Cousins all evening. The two were jawing most of the game in a contentious affair, and both players were assessed a technical foul during the game.
Oct 21 - 1:02 AM

Kevin Durant finished with 22 points, seven rebounds, an assist and a steal in 31 minutes Friday in New Orleans, but the highlight of the night was his six blocked shots.

Durant tied a career high with six blocks, previously accomplished Nov. 26, 2016. The most amazing part of the blocked shot show was that two of the swats came against Tony Allen in the second half when playing with just one shoe on. That's 10 blocked shots through two games, as he really looks to be on a mission at the defensive end early on.
Oct 21 - 12:57 AM

Klay Thompson posted 23 points with four rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes in Friday's road win against the Pelicans.

Thompson connected on 9-of-14 field goal attempts, including 5-of-8 from behind the arc. He was much more efficient and productive than he was in the opener against Houston. He had a quiet preseason but remains an obvious must-start in all fantasy formats.
Oct 21 - 12:52 AM

Stephen Curry posted 23 points with eight assists and three rebounds in Friday's road win in New Orleans.

Curry is the 10th player in franchise history to log at least 2,000 career free throws, and he passed Tim Hardaway for second place on the franchise's all-time assists list. He wasn't terribly impressive from the floor, hitting 6-of-15 field goal attempts while misfiring on 7-of-10 from the perimeter. Still, fantasy owners can't complain about eight assists and three rebounds. He is averaging 22.5 points, 6.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds through the first two outings.
Oct 21 - 12:49 AM

Andre Iguodala (back) will play Friday against the Pelicans.

Draymond Green (knee) will also play on Friday, meaning the Warriors will have their full complement of weapons. Iggy's return will likely eat into Nick Young's minutes. Swaggy P poured in 23 points and knocked down six 3-pointers in the Warriors season opener. Patrick McCaw and Jordan Bell will also probably see fewer minutes off the Golden State bench.
Oct 20 - 1:00 PM

Draymond Green (knee) and Andre Iguodala (back) will play Friday vs. the Pelicans.

There was some concern in Golden State when Green took a shot to the knee in Tuesday's season opener, but the MRI on Wednesday came back clean and Green was able to practice fully on Thursday. He's ready to rock and should be in all starting fantasy lineups for Friday's showdown with New Orleans' dynamic duo of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins.
Oct 20 - 12:42 PM

Draymond Green (knee) has been upgraded from doubtful to probable for Friday's game vs. New Orleans.

Green had an MRI taken Wednesday that came back clean and was able to practice fully on Thursday without any limitations. He's on track to suit up vs. the Pels. Golden State will need his defensive excellence, as the New Orleans tag team of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins is a handful for any opponent. Assuming Green plays his usual allotment of minutes, both Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney will see their playing time cut.
Oct 20 - 9:15 AM

Andre Iguodala (back) is probable for Friday against the Pelicans.

Lots of updates at Thursday night practice with Draymond Green practicing and Omri Casspi (ankle) being ruled out. Iguodala did not play on Tuesday, but he was at practice on Wednesday. If he does make it back, he could take a few minutes from red-hot Nick Young or Patrick McCaw.
Oct 19 - 8:55 PM

Draymond Green (knee) went through a full practice in New Orleans on Thursday.

There's a video below of him shooting jumpers and apparently he's feeling a lot better. Green is listed as doubtful, but it's worth a mention Green posted this on social media today: "Stories without facts... The way of life nowadays..." Could this be about something else? Of course. Still, we'd consider him closer to questionable than out for Friday.
Oct 19 - 8:33 PM

Omri Casspi (ankle) will not play on Friday against the Pelicans.

He won't get a revenge game after the Pelicans may have made a mistake in cutting him last year. Casspi did not return from his ankle injury on Tuesday and it's been bothering him, so they may not play him this weekend. Plus, he didn't practice on Wednesday.
Oct 19 - 5:55 PM

Andre Iguodala (back) and Omri Casspi (ankle) are questionable to play against the Pelicans on Friday.

Iguodala revealed he hurt his back in the weight room, but he did go through practice on Wednesday. Even if Casspi, Iggy and Draymond Green (knee) can't go, the Warriors still have enough depth and it's not like they're worried about their 0-1 start. If they are missing those guys, it should be more Nick Young, Pat McCaw and Jordan Bell.
Oct 19 - 5:53 PM

If Draymond Green (knee) can't play against the Pelicans on Friday, Jordan Bell is likely going to start.

What a difference 20 days makes. Back on Sept. 29, coach Steve Kerr said Bell would not be in the rotation to start the year. However, he was the first big off the bench on Tuesday, so now Kerr's "modern-day five" is likely to start across from Anthony Davis. Bell said he'll be looking to pass more as a four man, and he's also previously mentioned his motto is "WWDD" for "What would Draymond do?" Bell is only a speculative pickup for now, but seeing how he performs against AD and Boogie Cousins will be must-see TV for rookie-obbessed fans.
