Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Draymond Green bruised his right leg during the first half on Saturday, but he quickly returned to post seven points, seven rebounds, four assists and two blocks in a road victory.

Green had a tremendous chase-down block on Darren Collison in the third quarter, which should end any speculation about the severity of his injury. His ability to play multiple positions gives coach Mark Jackson an invaluable weapon off the bench, and his 22 minutes of playing time may increase throughout the series since small lineups are inevitable with Andrew Bogut (ribs) on the sidelines.

Andre Iguodala fouled out of Saturday's game with eight points and three assists in only 19 minutes of action.

Warriors coach Mark Jackson kept Iguodala in the game with three fouls in the first half and he quickly picked up his fourth, followed by a fifth early in the third quarter. The Clippers had their own foul problems with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin both sitting out much of the second half, and the Warriors were able to escape with a thrilling 109-105 victory despite Iguodala's absence down the stretch.
Apr 19 - 6:53 PM

David Lee looked great in the Warriors' Game 1 victory on Saturday, scoring 20 points on 8-of-13 shooting with 13 rebounds and three assists in 36 minutes.

Lee played solid post defense and drew a number of fouls against Blake Griffin, who eventually fouled out in 19 minutes. His recent hamstring injury led to some concern about his conditioning, as he hadn't played more than 33 minutes in the past three weeks, but Saturday's performance was a clear indication that the ambidextrous PF is healthy and ready to go.
Apr 19 - 6:49 PM

Draymond Green headed into the Warriors locker room with an apparent right knee injury before halftime on Saturday, but he has since returned.

Green was crossed over by Matt Barnes and fell awkwardly, and after a few moments he left to be evaluated by the training staff. His return is great news for Golden State, as the absence of Andrew Bogut (ribs) has already left them more reliant upon guys like Green, Harrison Barnes and Marreese Speights.
Apr 19 - 4:38 PM

Nemanja Nedovic (calf) will not be available for the Warriors on Saturday.

He hurt himself while playing for the Los Angeles D-Fenders in the D-League playoffs, but even healthy he'd be unlikely to step on the court for Golden State.
Apr 19 - 2:41 PM

The Warriors recalled Ognjen Kuzmic from the D-League on Friday.

He was sent to the D-League for extra playing time against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers and Kuzmic grabbed a game-high 18 rebounds in the win. In three D-League games he posted averages of 20.3 points, 15.3 rebounds, and shot an outstanding 77.1 percent from the field.
Apr 18 - 3:36 PM

Coach Mark Jackson said he's still debating whether to start Jermaine O'Neal or Draymond Green for Game 1 vs. the Clippers on Saturday.

Both players are likely going to see a ton of minutes next to David Lee, but Jackson just needs to figure out how he's going to get production out of his second unit. Green has really picked up his skills on offense, so he might be better suited off the bench and turn in a higher usage rate there.
Apr 17 - 5:49 PM

Jordan Crawford scored a career-high 41 points along with five rebounds, two assists and a steal in Wednesday's win over the Nuggets.

You could see him having a big game with the Warriors resting the regulars, but this was better than any of us could have imagined. Harrison Barnes chipped in with 30, while Randy Foye scored 32 and had 11 assists for the Nuggets in the loss. The Warriors are healthy, with the exception of Andrew Bogut, and ready to take on the Clippers in Round 1 of the playoffs. And that, our friends, is a wrap on the 2013-14 regular season.
Apr 17 - 1:37 AM

David Lee, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Jermaine O'Neal and Draymond Green all got a rest on Wednesday, but all should be ready to go for the playoffs.

Lee is the most banged up of this bunch with a sore hamstring, while Andrew Bogut isn't likely to play in the postseason with a fractured rib. Expect everyone but Bogut to be ready to face the Clippers in Round 1.

Klay Thompson, Steve Blake, Harrison Barnes, Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong are starting vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday.

Klay could have sat out, but the Warriors just need bodies tonight. His minutes could be limited so he's still bit of a gamble in fantasy leagues.
Apr 16 - 10:24 PM

Nemanja Nedovic (calf) will not play on Wednesday night.

He's had a tough time staying in the lineup and played just 6.2 minutes per game with the Warriors this season. They're going to be shorthanded tonight.
Apr 16 - 9:08 PM

Jermaine O'Neal will rest on Wednesday.

Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong will man the frontcourt for the Warriors, whose frontcourt is extremely short-handed without O'Neal, David Lee (rest), Draymond Green (rest) and Andrew Bogut (ribs).
Apr 16 - 2:11 PM

Draymond Green is expected to sit out Wednesday's game as a precaution.

Green is coming off a massive game on Monday and with nothing at stake on Wednesday the Warriors will give him some rest. His health and stamina will be crucial for their playoff hopes, since Andrew Bogut's absence with a broken rib means we'll see plenty of small frontcourts with Green alongside David Lee.
Apr 16 - 2:07 PM

Klay Thompson is unlikely to play in Wednesday's season finale.

He's missed one game all season and deserves some rest, having averaged 18.5 points, 2.8 threes, 3.1 rebounds and 2.3 assists to help Golden State secure the sixth seed in the competitive West.
Apr 16 - 2:05 PM

David Lee will sit out Wednesday's game to get some rest.

Lee's hamstring responded well to his recent return, and he dropped 25 points on 12-of-14 shooting on Monday, so his absence is truly a precaution. Marreese Speights will assume the starting PF job in his absence.
