Marreese Speights plead no contest to a reduced misdemeanor charge of reckless driving that stemmed from his arrest in Tampa in August.

Speights was originally charged with driving under the influence, but his lawyers were able to negotiate a deal that included $903 in fines and court costs. We'll have to await word on if Speights will face any discipline from the league, but let's let this serve a teachable moment for finding a designated driver.

Klay Thompson hit just 3-of-17 shots in the Warriors' loss to the Nets on Monday, finishing with seven points, four rebounds, five assists, one steal and one three.

Thompson has hit just 39.3 percent of his shots over his last five games and you guys don't need us to tell you that he's going to bounce back. Stephen Curry did his best to lift the Warriors with 26 points on 8-of-16 shooting, six treys, seven assists and a steal in the loss.
Mar 2 - 11:12 PM

Harrison Barnes scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting (including a three) with six rebounds and three steals in Monday's loss to the Nets.

Barnes has probably been added and dropped a whole bunch this season in your 12-team standard league, though his 1.5 turnovers per game gives him a bit more value in 9-cat formats.
Mar 2 - 11:09 PM

Draymond Green played on Monday against the Nets despite words from Steve Kerr indicating he'd prefer to rest him, and finished with three points, 11 boards, four assists, two steals and one block.

Nothing to see here, folks. We'll let you know if we hear anything about rest and he should remain locked into lineups.
Mar 2 - 11:06 PM

Andrew Bogut scored 16 points on 8-of-10 shooting with eight rebounds and three blocks over 25 minutes on Monday against the Nets.

Bogut was nearly rested tonight and he's been slumping so owners win out on both fronts. The Warriors concluded a stretch with 10-of-11 games on the road, so the obligatory trap game when a team returns home might actually be the game Steve Kerr targets for some rest. Owners need to stay on their toes.
Mar 2 - 11:05 PM

Festus Ezeli returned from his one-game suspension and put up 14 points, eight rebounds and one block in 15 minutes of action on Monday against the Nets.

Ezeli has some potential but injuries and lack of playing time have derailed his fantasy value. If that changes we'll let you know.
Mar 2 - 11:00 PM

Andre Iguodala scored 12 points off the bench on Monday, hitting 5-of-8 shots (including two threes) with four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 30 minutes.

Iguodala's season-long numbers are on the wrong side of the ledger in 12-team leagues, but he has been a mid-round value over the last month. During that span he has averaged 10.1 points, 1.3 treys, 4.5 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.8 combined steals and blocks in 28.7 mpg.
Mar 2 - 10:56 PM

Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green are starting against the Nets on Monday.

Well, so much for Kerr's comments about resting Bogut. Green and Kerr are likely to see their minutes decrease a tad, but fantasy owners shouldn't be investing in Marreese Speights or other secondary guys.
Mar 2 - 7:09 PM

Coach Steve Kerr said he wants to play Andrew Bogut on Monday against the Nets.

This is a surprise. On Saturday, Kerr said he would like to rest Bogut on Sunday, but Festus Ezeli being suspended forced his hand to play him. Therefore, one would think he would sit out tonight with Ezeli back. All that said, Bogut is still extremely risky to play tonight and not the strongest start in weekly leagues.
Mar 2 - 6:20 PM

Steve Kerr said he would like to get Draymond Green some rest after playing 44 minutes on Sunday, but added tonight's matchup probably won't allow it.

In other words, it looks like Green will play, but it might only be 30-33 minutes. To be clear it's all a guessing game right now, but owners in standard leagues should start Green as of right now. If you're in DFS, steering clear of Dray makes the most sense.
Mar 2 - 6:15 PM

Leandro Barbosa (illness) will not play against the Nets on Monday.

He is playing minutes in the teens in close games and the Warriors might have to shift Shaun Livingston around a little more tonight. We may also see more of Justin Holiday to help because the Warriors might rest Andrew Bogut tonight, as well. Barbosa can be left on the wire.
Mar 2 - 5:19 PM

Festus Ezeli will return to the Warriors now that he's served his one-game suspension.

This is just a reminder after Ezeli served his suspension in Sunday's win over the Celtics.
Mar 2 - 10:02 AM

Andre Iguodala returned to action with six points, nine rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 33 minutes during Sunday's win in Boston.

He made 3-of-4 shots and didn't commit any turnovers, picking up in March where he left off in February when he averaged 10.3 points on 51.3 percent shooting, 1.4 triples, 4.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.5 blocks. Poor free throw shooting dents Iguodala's value but he's still worth deploying in 12-team leagues.
Mar 2 - 1:58 AM

Marreese Speights was a healthy DNP-CD vs. the Celtics on Sunday.

Boston went very small with their second unit, deploying Jonas Jerebko at center, so the matchups didn't favor Speights at all. He's averaging just 13 minutes over Golden State's past 10 games and has no fantasy upside while Andrew Bogut, David Lee and Draymond Green are healthy.
Mar 2 - 12:54 AM

Andrew Bogut scored only two points on 1-of-6 shooting during Sunday's massive comeback, but he added 10 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in just 19 minutes.

He was scheduled to miss tonight's game as a precaution but Festus Ezeli's suspension forced him into the starting lineup. The Warriors are back in action vs. the Nets on Monday and owners should be on red-alert for a rest day from Bogut.
