Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Nick Young played 19 minutes and hit 4-of-8 shots, all 3-pointers, for 13 points in Monday's easy win over the Mavericks.

Young caught fire in the second game of the season when he hit 8-of-9 shots and six 3-pointers, but has played just 11, 5 and 19 minutes in each of his last three games. As long as Klay Thompson is healthy, Young will be nothing more than a garbage-time specialist for the Dubs.
Oct 23 - 11:56 PM

Omri Casspi returned from his ankle injury and played six minutes in a blowout win over the Mavs on Monday.

He didn't post a single stat in his six minutes and is barely a part of rotation for the Warriors. In fact, the lopsided score is likely the only reason he played at all.
Oct 23 - 11:51 PM

Stephen Curry hit 7-of-15 shots, 2-of-10 3-pointers and 13-of-13 free throws on his way to 29 points, two rebounds, eight assists, four steals and six turnovers in Monday's 133-103 win over the Mavericks.

Just another day at the office for Curry, although the six TOs were a season high, as were the four steals. After two early losses this season the Warriors needed a game like this to get back on track. Draymond Green flirted with a low-scoring triple-double, Kevin Durant had 25-8-6 and Klay Thompson added 21 points with three 3-pointers in the easy win. They'll try to build a winning streak when they host the Raptors on Wednesday.

Stephen Curry was fined $50,000 for throwing his mouthpiece during Saturday's game, but will not be suspended and will play Monday vs. the Mavs.

Curry was irate at a non-call and threw his mouthpiece in the direction of a referee late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's loss to Memphis. There was some concern that the league might suspend him for a game; however, he only got hit with a fine. Curry is averaging 29.0 points, 4.7 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 4.3 treys over the Warriors first three games.
Oct 23 - 4:58 PM

Omri Casspi (left ankle sprain) is available for Monday's game vs. Dallas after a two-game absence.

He may not be in the rotation, so he has no business being anywhere near a fantasy lineup while the Warriors are healthy.
Oct 23 - 1:02 PM

Omri Casspi (left ankle sprain) is probable for Monday's game vs. Dallas.

Casspi gives the Warriors' bench unit some extra offensive punch as they look to even their record at 2-2, but his availability shouldn't impact fantasy lineups.
Oct 22 - 7:14 PM

Kevin Durant posted 29 points, 13 rebounds, three assists, three blocks, one steal and four 3-pointers on Saturday, before being ejected for arguing with the refs.

Durant was coming to the defense of teammate Steph Curry, who had just been tossed for throwing his mouthpiece, and there's no reason to think he'll face further punishment. He's cruising along with the elite value his owners expected on draft day, including a stunning 14 blocks through three games. Since the 2013-14 season, only Durant (this year) and DeMarcus Cousins (last year) have had three consecutive games with at least 20 points, three blocks and two 3-pointers.
Oct 21 - 11:15 PM

David West was active in nine minutes vs. Memphis on Saturday, scoring four points with six rebounds, three assists and two steals.

West is looking to double-up on championship rings with the Warriors this season, but his real-world value far exceeds his fantasy value. The 14-year veteran has been on a steady decline, fantasy-wise, since a stellar 2012-13 campaign.
Oct 21 - 11:13 PM

Patrick McCaw went scoreless with two assists and one steal in 12 minutes on Saturday.

Memphis walked away from this game with a 111-101 victory, leaving McCaw and the Warriors with an unfamiliar 1-2 record to begin the season. Steve Kerr said after Friday's game that McCaw was still battling Nick Young for the backup SG job -- no matter which guy wins, they won't be a reliable option in leagues with 14 or fewer teams.
Oct 21 - 11:13 PM

JaVale McGee finished Saturday's road loss with four points and zero other stats to his credit in four minutes off the bench.

McGee revived his NBA career as an impact player for the Warriors last year, ensuring that he's more than a 'Shaqtin a Fool' footnote. Rookie big man Jordan Bell looks like a favorite of coach Steve Kerr's, however, which makes McGee a non-factor in fantasy leagues.
Oct 21 - 11:12 PM

Nick Young had one turnover and zero other stats to his credit in five minutes vs. Memphis on Saturday.

Young started the season with 17 points vs. Houston, but since then he's averaged 1.5 points in 8.0 minutes. Steve Kerr said after Friday's game that his second unit rotation was still being decided: "Nick and Patrick [McCaw], I don't think either has won the [backup SG] job yet." Klay Thompson logged 38 minutes tonight, and neither Young nor McCaw will hold value while Klay is healthy.
Oct 21 - 11:11 PM

Stephen Curry was ejected from Saturday's game for throwing his mouthpiece toward a referee on a non-call late in the fourth quarter.

Curry should face a stiff fine from the league for this one, but it's unlikely he'll get a suspension -- as a precaution, owners should still confirm his status prior to Monday's game in Dallas. Prior to exiting, Curry lit up the Grizzlies for 37 points on 9-of-17 FGs and 13-of-13 FTs, with six 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in just 30 minutes.
Oct 21 - 10:57 PM

Omri Casspi (ankle) is out against the Grizzlies.

The Warriors will be OK and could still go 11 deep. Casspi has very little fantasy value.
Oct 21 - 6:42 PM

Omri Casspi (left ankle) is questionable to face the Grizzlies on Saturday.

He hasn't gone through practice yet and the Warriors still were able to go 11 deep on Friday against the Pelicans. The Warriors are in no rush to bring Casspi back.
Oct 21 - 3:03 PM

Shaun Livingston was scoreless in 12 minutes in Friday's win at Golden State, his 700th career NBA appearance.

Livingston was able to contribute with three rebounds and an assist, but the milestone game wasn't particularly memorable from a fantasy perspective. He'll need to do much better if he wants to keep Nick Young from carving into his minutes further. For now he remains useful only in the very deepest of fantasy leagues.
