Festus Ezeli (knee) has been ruled out through the All-Star break.

Steve Kerr said the team is being "cautious" and they're bringing in doctors to examine the cartilage issue that has played Ezeli. "Sometimes these things aren't easily diagnosed from an MRI," Kerr said. "That's why we're getting more opinions." Ezeli hasn't been a fantasy asset this season, so his absence shouldn't impact any lineups.

James Michael McAdoo (toe) will not play against the Thunder on Saturday.

The Warriors are finally ruling McAdoo out early now. He is likely out through the break.
Feb 5 - 2:52 PM

Festus Ezeli (knee) and James Michael McAdoo (toe) are out against the Thunder on Saturday.

The loss of Ezeli doesn't sting too badly with Andrew Bogut healthy for this game. Expect to see a lot of the NBA's best lineup when the Warriors go small, so that helps Andre Iguodala slightly. Ezeli isn't a fantasy option.

Stephen Curry scored 51 points during a 134-121 win over the Wizards on Wednesday, adding seven rebounds, two assists, three steals, seven turnovers and a career-high-tying 11 3-pointers.

He was a ridiculous 13-of-14 from the field in the first half with eight treys, which gave him a laughable 121.4 effective field goal percentage. Curry was coming off his worst game of the season from an efficiency standpoint, but he definitely got it right back. He became the first player to hit more than 10 treys in multiple games. Get ready for a great game on Saturday night with Steph vs. Russell Westbrook.
Feb 3 - 11:20 PM

Klay Thompson scored 24 points with four rebounds, one steal and six 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

It's not often a guy drops six treys in a game and one of his teammates had five more than he did. Thompson certainly has the scoring side down in his last four with an absurd 76.1 true shooting percentage and a 31.9 usage rate. That led to averages of 33.8 points, 3.0 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals, 0.5 blocks and 5.5 treys on 60.2 percent from the field. Klay is being overshadowed big time.
Feb 3 - 11:10 PM

Draymond Green logged his 10th triple-double of the season during a win over the Wizards on Wednesday, scoring 12 points with 10 rebounds, 12 assists, one steal and five blocks.

That's back-to-back triple-doubles for Green and he managed to keep his lead over Russell Westbrook, who dropped his eighth triple-double on the season tonight. Green's blocks had also dropped in each full month this year, so he got a nice start there in February. He's one of a kind.

James Michael McAdoo (toe) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game vs. the Wizards.

There's a reason why his ownership percentage in Yahoo! Leagues is at zero. Leave him on the wire.
Feb 2 - 5:51 PM

Kevon Looney has been called up from his D-League stint, and he'll be available to play Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

With both James Michael McAdoo (toe) and Festus Ezeli (knee) set to spend Wednesday's game on the sidelines, Looney could see some limited minutes off the bench tomorrow, although he won't receive enough playing time to matter in any league.

Harrison Barnes said that he feels he's playing his way back into game shape and is starting to find his rhythm again after spending all of December on the sidelines with an ankle injury.

"I’m feeling good," Barnes said. "I’m just getting back to playing into game shape and getting my rhythm back. I feel like I’m getting to the point where I can go out there and contribute and not have any pain… I’m still looking to get my explosion back and not have any pain." Barnes hasn't exactly hit the ground running since returning from the injury, as he shot just 42.4 percent from the field through the month of January. However, he has mid-round upside, so Barnes warrants a hold in standard formats.
Feb 2 - 5:42 PM

James Michael McAdoo (toe) is doubtful to play the Wizards on Wednesday.

He hasn't played in a month, so don't expect to see him out there. McAdoo isn't in the rotation anyways and is not a fantasy asset.
Feb 1 - 8:27 PM

Festus Ezeli (knee) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

The big man has no timetable for a return and it's not a good sign that he has been ruled out this early. Leave him on the wire and expect Marreese Speights to fill the void off the bench.

Steve Nash is not expected to take over as interim coach of the Suns, sources told ESPN's Marc Stein.

It's absurd that this is even news given that it would be a clear publicity stunt for a Suns team in need of real direction, but this is the Phoenix Suns we're talking about. Despite "strong interest" in having Nash on the bench, the Hall of Fame point guard is not interested in taking the role. By the way, the Suns are without an interim coach and play a game on Tuesday.

Steve Kerr recently compared Stephen Curry to Mark Price and Steve Nash for his offensive abilities.

"The two guys I’d maybe compare him the most to are Mark Price and Steve Nash in terms of the combination of ball-handling and passing and shooting range and creativity," Nash said. "But Steph has taken it to a new level. But he’s taken it to a new level in terms of just the range, the ballhanding and creativity. It’s pretty special." We agree, coach. We agree.

Harrison Barnes was quiet against the Knicks on Sunday, scoring eight points on 3-of-8 shooting with three boards, one assist and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

Klay Thompson and Draymond Green ran the show for the Warriors, and even Stephen Curry was quiet in this one. Barnes hit a game-winning 3-pointer vs. the 76ers on Saturday, but his averages of 8.2 points, 4.6 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games are underwhelming. He is shooting just 36.4 percent in that span, so he's simply in a slump. He has enough upside to warrant a hold in standard leagues.

Stephen Curry struggled against the Knicks on Sunday, scoring 13 points on just 5-of-17 shooting.

The Warriors got off to a brutal start to the game and had their lowest-scoring quarter of the season with 18 in the first, but they still got the job done to secure their seventh straight win. The Warriors are now 44-4 on the season and Curry will look to get back on track vs. the Wizards on Wednesday. He added four boards, four assists, three steals and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes. He has a minor cut on his forehead, but he's obviously going to be fine.
