Updating a previous report, Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Lakers.

Monday will mark Pachulia's fourth straight game on the sidelines, and he should be considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies. With both Draymond Green (shoulder) and Pachulia unavailable on Monday night, Jordan Bell will have another opportunity to start and there will be more minutes available for David West.
Dec 17 - 5:08 PM

Damian Jones has been recalled from the G-League.

He might be able to earn some limited run on Monday with Draymond Green (shoulder) unavailable, but he won't be getting enough minutes to matter in most formats.
Dec 17 - 4:10 PM

Steve Kerr said he's expecting Nick Young (concussion) to play Monday vs. the Lakers.

Young has officially cleared the league-mandated concussion protocol testing, so there's nothing suggesting he won't be back out there on Monday night. With Stephen Curry (ankle) and Shaun Livingston (knee) out on Monday, Young could see a few extra minutes falling his way, and he could be someone to consider as a 3-point streamer under the revenge game narrative.
Dec 17 - 4:08 PM

Quinn Cook has been recalled from the G-League.

The Warriors will need him on Monday with both Stephen Curry (ankle) and Shaun Livingston (knee) unavailable, so he could potentially be looking at minutes in the 20s. Still, that's not enough floor time for him to churn out reliable fantasy value in most leagues.
Dec 17 - 3:48 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Pachulia was able to get through some of Saturday's practice, but there's no reason to rush him back to the court for a matchup against the Lakers. Check back for another update following Monday morning's shootaround, but if he's out again, that'll translate to more minutes for Jordan Bell and David West.
Dec 17 - 3:46 PM

Shaun Livingston (knee) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Lakers.

Livingston wasn't able to practice on Saturday due to the knee issue, and the Warriors will take a cautious approach here with a matchup against the 10-17 Lakers. With both Livingston and Stephen Curry (ankle) unavailable on Monday night, Patrick McCaw and Quinn Cook will pick up most of the point guard minutes.
Dec 17 - 3:44 PM

Draymond Green (shoulder) and Shaun Livingston (knee) have been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Lakers.

This will be Green's third straight game on the sidelines, which should result in Jordan Bell getting another start with more minutes falling to Omri Casspi. After Monday's game in Los Angeles, the Warriors return home for a matchup with Memphis on Wednesday, and for now, we'll be considering Green questionable for that one. Livingston's off day seems more precautionary than anything else, so he's probably closer to probable for Wednesday's game.

Stephen Curry (ankle) went through some shooting drills on Saturday.

According to the report, Curry was going through at about 75 percent and he did have a noticeable hitch in his stride. Curry was expected to be re-evaluated around Tuesday, so we should get another update early this week. For now, his fantasy owners will probably want to consider benching him for the upcoming week.
Dec 16 - 4:05 PM

Draymond Green (shoulder) did not practice on Saturday.

The Warriors are off until Monday, so not practicing isn't a huge deal. On the other hand, coach Steve Kerr didn't give Green much of a chance to play on Thursday and he didn't sound encouraged on Saturday. "It’s a little bit concerning that he hasn’t made more strides," Kerr said. If he is out, Jordan Bell should get another chance to put up numbers while Omri Casspi also benefits.
Dec 16 - 3:35 PM

Shaun Livingston (knee) did not practice on Saturday.

This is a new injury for Livingston and perhaps this has something to do with his horrible knee injury from earlier in his career. If Livingston does need to miss Monday, Patrick McCaw and Quinn Cook would handle the point guard minutes while Nick Young would also benefit, assuming he's a go.
Dec 16 - 3:33 PM

Nick Young (concussion) is questionable to play against the Lakers on Monday.

He was on the practice floor on Saturday, but he still needs to be evaluated. Young could be symptom-free and going through shootaround on Monday could mean he gets a revenge game. With Stephen Curry (ankle) out, Young should be in the rotation once he's healthy, but he'll be a risky DFS play.
Dec 16 - 3:28 PM

Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) participated in practice on Saturday and is questionable for Monday against the Lakers.

He's dealt with his shoulder soreness for basically the entire month of December. Pachulia did suit up for Dec. 6, but he aggravated his injury in that game. If he's out again, Jordan Bell may get another start while David West gets minutes in the 20s.
Dec 16 - 3:25 PM

Omri Casspi started again for the Warriors with Stephen Curry (ankle), Draymond Green (shoulder) and Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) out and went off, hitting 7-of-9 shots and a 3-pointer for a season-high 17 points and 11 boards, along with two assists and two blocks in 30 minutes.

Casspi had 11 points, nine boards and a 3-pointer on Monday, but the Warriors hope to get Green back on Monday, which is when they have their next game. Casspi is worth a punt play in DFS on nights when he's starting, but has been far too inconsistent to trust on a regular basis.
Dec 15 - 2:08 AM

Kevin Durant hit 15-of-23 shots and four 3-pointers for 36 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists and two blocks in 34 minutes of Thursday's easy 112-97 win over the Mavericks.

Even with Stephen Curry (ankle) and Draymond Green (shoulder) in street clothes, the Warriors had no problems dispensing of the Mavericks in quiet fashion. And as long as Curry, and/or Green are hurt, Durant should continue to put the Dubs on his back and make a lot of noise.
Dec 15 - 2:04 AM

Jordan Bell started in place of Draymond Green (shoulder) on Thursday and hit 4-of-5 shots for eight points, six rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 24 minutes.

Bell was a popular play in DFS tonight with Green being out and he came through with an efficient and productive line. He'll continue to be worth a look in all formats anytime Green is out, but "Mini Draymond" will only have value if the real Draymond is in street clothes. The Warriors are off until Monday, so chances are Green's shoulder will be feeling better by then. Bell is probably worth a deep-league stash, but still isn't worth owning in most fantasy leagues. That would change in a hurry if one of the Warriors' star players were to suffer an injury that would keep them out for any length of time.
