Stephen Curry will not be in attendance for the Team USA minicamp in July.

Curry, fresh off winning his third championship, will instead be spending time with his family, who just saw the new addition of a baby boy. LeBron James will also skip the voluntary minicamp, but Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are expected to be in attendance.

Jordan Bell (shoulder) will not play Thursday.

That'll be that for Bell's summer league. He was outstanding in his time at Sacramento, and thrived on defense in Vegas. Bell is going to get big minutes before DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) comes back, so he's firmly on the board as a fantasy target.
Jul 12 - 4:15 PM

Damian Jones (MCL strain) will not play in the Warriors summer league finale on Friday.

An MRI revealed the MCL strain so this comes as no surprise that he's not playing in a somewhat meaningless game. For what it's worth, he was at a camp on Thursday and didn't have a brace on his knee, so this MCL sprain is very minor.
Jul 12 - 4:15 PM

Jacob Evans (toe, rib) is out again for Thursday.

He's a little banged up from his summer-league action, so the Warriors will just hold him out in their finale. Evans could be a perimeter option late in the season, but he's off to a rocky start.
Jul 12 - 4:14 PM

The Rockets are one of six teams that have been linked to Nick Young.

The Wolves, Jazz, Cavaliers, Grizzlies, and Kings have also been linked to the 33-year-old wing. Young is a career 37.6% shooter from beyond the arc and can add instant offense to any second unit, but he'll likely have to accept the veteran's minimum if he wants to join Houston.

Jordan Bell said he would "definitely" like to stay with the Warriors beyond the 2018-19 season.

"I don’t like moving, I like the team we have, I like the way things are run," Bell said about his possible restricted free agency next summer. "Just like everyone else here, really, nobody wants to leave Golden State. We’ll see how this year turns out, how I play, all that stuff." In case you missed it earlier, he is not going to play on Wednesday due to a sore shoulder. Bell is a good bet to be the opening-night starter until DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is healthy, so he has attractive fantasy value.

Jordan Bell (left shoulder) will not play on Wednesday night.

It'll be his second consecutive game out of the lineup with soreness. Bell has been on the bench with the team, and there's no reason to think this will affect him long term. With Damian Jones likely out, we should see a good amount of their younger guys.
Jul 11 - 2:12 PM

Damion Lee has agreed to a deal with the Warriors.

Lee is Stephen Curry's future brother-in-law and was picked up by the Hawks late last season, averaging 10.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.0 triples in 15 appearances. He's reportedly going to take one of Golden State's two-way contracts, meaning he will have 45 days of NBA eligibility in 2018-19.
Jul 10 - 7:37 PM

Elijah Brown, who sat out last Monday's SL game due to a concussion, played for the Warriors on Monday and had seven points, one rebound, two assists and two steals.

He's just trying to make the regular-season roster so this was probably a step in the right direction.
Jul 9 - 9:53 PM

An MRI revealed that Damian Jones has a Grade one MCL strain in his right knee.

The Warriors will list him as day-to-day, but they will probably shut him down for Summer League. Jones will likely open the season as the third-string center behind Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney, but he'll be irrelevant once DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is cleared to play.
Jul 9 - 8:15 PM

Jordan Bell (sore left shoulder) will not suit up for Monday's Summer League game against the Mavericks.

It's the second night of a back-to-back set in a series of meaningless games, so there's no reason for Bell to push it with the sore shoulder. To be clear, the injury is not expected to be serious.
Jul 9 - 6:56 PM

DeMarcus Cousins will have an Achilles rehab appointment in mid-July.

This means we should get an updated timetable in about a week. "The goal is for us to have him in the playoffs," Warriors GM Bob Myers said. "But that doesn't mean we'll wait for the playoffs...When he's ready to play, he'll play." Cousins already indicated that he'll miss training camp, and it's reasonable to think that he'll miss a good chunk of the regular season as well. Until Boogie gets a clean bill of health, Jordan Bell should get an opportunity to produce in his absence and has looked solid in Las Vegas.
Jul 9 - 12:36 PM

Jacob Evans made 2-of-8 shots en route to five points, two rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes on Sunday.

The Warriors took Evans at No. 28 this summer and he has good size at the SG position, but faces an uphill battle to crack the rotation as a rookie. He's now a combined 5-of-20 from the field through two Summer League games, which doesn't help his case.
Jul 8 - 9:34 PM

Jordan Bell was busy during 16 minutes of action on Sunday, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting with five boards, two assists, three steals and two blocks.

Bell had a few nice moments on both ends of the court, but he added four turnovers and five personal fouls despite the limited playing time. His fantasy upside is unquestioned but the arrival of DeMarcus Cousins has severely dampened his long-term outlook this season.
Jul 8 - 9:33 PM

Damian Jones is dealing with a sore right knee and has been sent back to the Bay Area to get an MRI.

The fact that the knee issue was bad enough to require an MRI is somewhat concerning, but for now, we'll assume this was simply a precautionary move by Golden State. With Jones unavailable for Sunday's Summer League game, there will be even more opportunity for Jordan Bell.
