Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Jermaine O'Neal is reportedly "highly intrigued" with the possibility of joining the Mavericks in pursuit of a title.

O'Neal currently resides in the Dallas area, and is familiar with Rick Carlisle's system as he played for him during his time with the Pacers. The Warriors and Cavaliers also remain in the running to acquire O'Neal's services, but the Mavericks have the edge for now. O'Neal will be a reserve wherever he lands, and won't be worth owning in standard leagues.

Stephen Curry had one of his patented explosions against the Thunder during a 114-109 win on Thursday, scoring 34 points with seven rebounds, nine assists, four steals, one block and five 3-pointers in 42 minutes.

The Thunder came out firing with a 40-point first quarter, but Curry got it going. He did have a minor ankle scare tonight and it did not cause him to miss time. On top of the obvious treys, Curry has career highs in free throw makes, rebounds, steals, usage rate and true shooting percentage. Superstar.
Dec 19 - 2:11 AM

Marreese Speights had 10 points in 19 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with five rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He has a very high usage rate and should be able to score in the teens while Andrew Bogut (knee) is out. Bogut could miss up to a month, so that means the Speights Cowboy is worth a grab in standard leagues. Some people call him Marreese.

Harrison Barnes will have a minor procedure on his nose on Friday, but doesn't expect to miss time.

He played well against the Thunder on Thursday with 12 points, seven rebounds, one assist, two steals and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes. Barnes is a low-end player to hold in standard leagues.
Dec 19 - 1:59 AM

Draymond Green filled the stat sheet as per usual with 16 points, nine rebounds, nine assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 44 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday.

He did make just 1-of-4 from the line, but who cares? Green is probably third on the NBA's Most Improved Player list behind Jimmy Butler and Anthony Davis, and he's also absolutely no fluke. He has Wally Pipp'd David Lee and should be worth owning in all leagues.
Dec 19 - 1:57 AM

David Lee (hamstring) is expected to return next week.

The Warriors won't be in a rush to bring him back after he's already aggravated his strain in his first game back. Draymond Green Wally Pipp'd him already, so Lee is not going to get minutes over 26 or so. He's worth a stash and perhaps someone in your league thinks he'll be the same player he was last year.

Andrew Bogut's agent David Bauman speculated that Bogut might be able to return "sometime in January."

"I’m not going to say two, three, four weeks, but that’s probably a reasonable assumption if all goes well, and then he’ll return sometime in January," said Bauman. Bogut will likely be re-evaluated in about a week to see how his knee is responding to treatment, after which the team will decide whether to keep resting him or to undergo another round of PRP injections. Marreese Speights and Draymond Green will help fill the void with Bogut on the sidelines.

The Mavs are now reportedly going after free agent Jermaine O'Neal in an effort to replace Brandan Wright.

The Mavs currently do not have a true backup center to help out Tyson Chandler, and O'Neal played for head coach Rick Carlisle with the Pacers, so there's something here. However, while O'Neal would help out the Mavericks in the depth department, he wouldn't be worth owning in most leagues. He averaged 7.9 points and 5.5 rebounds with the Warriors last season.

Andrew Bogut (knee) had a platelet-rich plasma treatment on Wednesday, and there is currently no timetable set for his return.

Bogut said recently that he felt his knee was "giving out," and news just keeps getting worse for the oft-injured big man. He will not suit up for Thursday's game vs. OKC, and he should be considered doubtful for Monday's game against Sacramento. Draymond Green and Marreese Speights will be the primary beneficiaries with Bogut sidelined, and we'll be monitoring his status closely. Stay tuned.
Dec 18 - 2:21 PM

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.
