Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 12 assists during a 114-100 win over the Kings on Friday, adding 27 points, seven rebounds, six steals and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

The Warriors assists were all over the place early with 20 in the first half, which was the second straight time they did so in the first half. As for Curry, he also made his 277th triple this season for the third most in NBA history -- he has the first and second most. Not that anyone should've been worried about Curry's shooting slump, but now he's made 52.5 percent from deep with 5.3 treys per game over his last four outings. Expect a big finish until the Warriors lock up their top seed.

Draymond Green scored a season-high 23 points with four rebounds, eight assists, three steals, one block and three 3-pointers against the Kings on Friday.

It's just his fourth 20-plus scoring game of the season. Green has scored in single digits for each of his last four games, which was somewhat surprising due to how he did have some added usage while Kevin Durant (knee) was out. Green's assists have still been great and the Warriors handed out 37 dimes in this win. The Warriors still only have a 2.5 game lead over the Spurs, so they may not rest too many games until they lock up the No. 1 seed.

Andre Iguodala scored nine points with one rebound, three assists and no turnovers in 27 minutes against the Kings on Friday.

He did go to the locker room in the last few minutes, but the game was over. Iguodala did not give much indication he was going to miss time, so he should be fine for Sunday. Although, the Warriors will likely rest him again at some point.
Mar 25 - 3:10 AM

Andre Iguodala (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday against the Kings.

After missing the last game on Tuesday, Iguodala could be back for this home game. The Warriors are not on a back-to-bac set, but they really won't need Iggy as 18-point favorites tonight.
Mar 24 - 3:47 PM

Kevin Durant (knee) was doing some full-court sprints at shootaround on Friday.

He was also doing some dribbling moves and some shooting. Durant is coming along faster than expected and it may not be long before he's taking on some contact. There still is no timetable, but a return in early April seems feasible.
Mar 24 - 2:53 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said that Kevin Durant (knee) continues to take encouraging steps in his rehab.

Kerr told reporters that Durant "did a little more" on Thursday, including some lateral movement. Kerr also said that Durant would be re-evaluated by doctors next Thursday and the team would provide their "first real update" at the end of next week. It's quite possible KD appears in some regular seasons games next month, but the Warriors will likely limit his minutes if he is able to suit up.
Mar 24 - 10:53 AM

Kevin Durant (knee) went through some 5-on-0 drills at practice on Thursday.

He was wearing a knee brace for some of his shooting drills and there is no word of him taking on contact yet. On Wednesday, ESPN reported Durant could be back for part of the regular season, so the news today coincides with that. KD is likely going to travel with the team and could be re-evaulated next week. If you can afford to stash KD, it makes some sense.
Mar 23 - 3:31 PM

Kevon Looney has been sent down to the D-League.

Looney is a non-factor in the Dubs rotation while they're at full strength, so no fantasy impact here.
Mar 22 - 7:14 PM

Kevin Durant's (knee) progress has the Warriors hopeful he can return before end of regular season, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

KD is doing some on-court work these days, but he still doesn't have a target date. He was expected to miss four weeks, which means his original target window will be at the end of this month. The Warriors would likely ease KD back in and perhaps do so in the first round of the postseason. If you're going to stash him, there's a decent chance he won't make much of an impact upon his return.
Mar 22 - 4:16 PM

Ian Clark came off the bench and hit 8-of-16 shots for 18 points, four rebounds and a steal in 29 minutes of Tuesday's blowout win over the Mavericks.

Clark went off for 36 points on March 11 in a game when Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant were all out, and saw some extra run with Andre Iguodala (hip) in street clothes tonight. Any time the Warriors are resting guys, Clark looks like the best bet for success. Patrick McCaw started and scored 10 points with a decent stat line, but Clark is probably the guy to keep a closer eye on, but only when some studs are sitting.
Mar 21 - 11:59 PM

Stephen Curry faced off against brother Seth Curry on Tuesday and hit 7-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 17 points, five boards, nine assists and two steals in a 112-87 win over the Mavs.

Klay Thompson stayed red-hot, hitting 9-of-15 shots and five 3-pointers for 23 points and three steals, and the Warriors have now won five straight games without Kevin Durant. And that number should improve to six with a date against the Kings on Friday night.
Mar 21 - 11:55 PM

Draymond Green hit just 2-of-6 shots and a 3-pointer for seven points, seven rebounds and eight assists in 28 minutes of Tuesday's 112-87 blowout win over the Mavs.

That makes four straight single-digit scoring nights for Dray, who is averaging just 6.5 points over his last four games. But he's also averaging 9.0 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last five, so it's the 32 percent shooting that is holding him down. Even when he got loose for 20 points and a monster line a week ago, he hit just 4-of-13 shots in doing so. He's still obviously a must-start player and he probably doesn't care how bad his shooting is as long as the Warriors are winning, but it would be nice to see him make some shots against the Kings on Friday.
Mar 21 - 11:52 PM

Andre Iguodala (left hip strain) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Mavs.

This is the first we've heard of a hip injury for Iggy. We should get an update on its severity soon. Iguodala has missed a few games to rest this season but has been remarkably healthy all year long. With Kevin Durant (knee) already sidelined, this leaves the Warriors a bit thin at small forward. Patrick McCaw and Matt Barnes will both see an uptick in minutes, but it would be difficult to place too much trust in either player.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: With Durant and Iguodala off the floor this season, Klay Thompson leads the Warriors in usage at 32.2%, and produces at a 1.17 FPPM clip compared to a 1.11 FPPM mark for back-court mate Stephen Curry. Ian Clark carries a considerably higher usage rate (25.6%) than either Matt Barnes (17.0%) or Patrick McCaw (15.2%) in that split, but targeting any of those three players is best left for GPP play.
Mar 21 - 12:51 PM

Draymond Green scored two points with 10 rebounds, six assists and one steal vs. the Thunder on Monday.

He was 0-of-4 from the field and 2-of-4 from the line, but this is basically his floor when his shot isn't falling. Green only played 26 minutes in the blowout win, so the good news is that he should be reasonably fresh for Tuesday's game in Dallas on the second night of a back-to-back set. Just double check his status to make sure he isn't rested.
Mar 20 - 11:57 PM

Stephen Curry scored 23 points and hit seven 3-pointers on Monday vs. the Thunder.

Curry and Thompson combined to score 57 points with 14 triples in an easy win. He shot 8-of-17 from the field with six assists, four rebounds and five turnovers, and the good news is that he was able to rest for the entire fourth quarter. Considering he only played 30 minutes, his fantasy owners should be expecting him to play vs. the Mavericks on the second night of a back-to-back set on Tuesday in Dallas.
