Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

James Michael McAdoo (illness) will not play on Saturday.

He is not in the rotation and also missed Game 3 due to an illness. The Warriors will likely get David Lee back to help out Marreese Speights in the second unit.

David Lee (back) is not listed on the injury report for Game 4 on Saturday.

He was expected to play 3-on-3 today and it apparently went well. Lee may not be in the rotation and he would only be Draymond Green's backup at best. Green has at least 40 minutes in all three playoff games this season while Andrew Bogut is also getting 29.7 minutes of playing time. Don't expect much out of Lee in the playoffs.

Stephen Curry hit one of the most clutch shots in recent memory to send Thursday's game against the Pelicans to overtime, finishing with 40 points, five rebounds, nine assists and seven 3-pointers in 44 minutes during the 123-119 Game 3 victory.

If you haven't seen the shot for some reason, check out the link below. He was actually struggling from deep before the clutch make, finishing 7-of-18 from long range. His 18 attempts from deep are tied for the most in an NBA playoff game (Ray Allen). Curry has also taken an incredible 13.3 3-point attempts per game in this series and he's logging 40.3 minutes per game as well. He probably has another 40-point game in him in the next couple weeks. The Warriors will look to sweep on Saturday.

Shaun Livingston scored 12 points in 20 minutes against the Pelicans on Thursday with four rebounds and no turnovers on 5-of-7 from the field.

Not many people are going to talk about it because Stephen Curry broke the internet, but Livingston really had a great game. He played just 13 minutes in each of the first two games and he's earned more playing time going forward. He might start taking away some minutes from Leandro Barbosa or even Andre Iguodala.

Draymond Green fouled out in overtime against the Pelicans on Thursday, finishing with 12 points, 17 boards, five assists, three steals, one block and one turnover in 40 minutes.

He was called for his sixth foul on a questionable call and ran straight to the tunnel because he was so incredulous. As what happened before the exit, it was another game, another big stat line. Green was actually in foul trouble early on, but played all but six minutes in the final three quarters and overtime until he fouled out. He's going to be a fantasy stud for a long time and there's almost no way the Warriors won't bring him back.

David Lee (back) is progressing and is expected to play 3-on-3 at practice on Friday.

He's not going to play tonight and the Warriors don't need him anyway. Draymond Green is logging 42 minutes per game and is playing some of the best defense of anyone right now.
Apr 23 - 8:03 PM

David Lee (back) was spotted running on the court on Thursday.

He's still going to be out for Thursday's Game 3 against the Pelicans, but it sounds like he's moving in the right direction. Draymond Green has been logging major minutes for the Dubs, and that likely won't change when Lee returns to the rotation. Marreese Speights will pick up most of Lee's reserve minutes for however long he's sidelined.

Draymond Green took issue with Andrew Bogut's sixth-place finish in the Defensive Player of the Year voting.

While many expected Green's reaction to be about his own second-place finish, Green took to defending his teammate and called the center's sixth-place finish a "mockery" while also labeling Bogut the best defensive center in the league. While DeAndre Jordan might have something to say about that last statement, it's nice to see Green support his teammate while taking his own snub with a grain of salt.
Apr 23 - 1:42 PM

Draymond Green said he isn't upset over not winning the Defensive Player of the Year Award.

The outspoken Green took his second-place finish to Kawhi Leonard in stride and even made a reference back to the 2000 election to explain his thinking. "Al Gore won the popular vote and didn't get elected president so I'm not gonna beat myself up over not winning DPOY," Green said. While Green is saying the right things to reporters, good luck to upcoming opponents who have the misfortune of having to face the Warriors' stopper.

James Michael McAdoo (flu-like symptoms) will miss Thursday's Game 3 against the Pelicans.

McAdoo is likely to stay in the Bay Area throughout the weekend, which would also put him on track to miss Game 4 on Saturday. While the 22-year-old has shown flashes in limited action, he's yet to see any playing time in the series and is likely to have a very limited role in the postseason once he gets over his illness.
Apr 23 - 1:23 PM

David Lee (back) has been ruled out for Thursday's Game 3 against the Pelicans.

This news comes as no surprise as Lee had already been listed as doubtful. Draymond Green has averaged 42 minutes per game over the first two games of the series and he and Marreese Speights will continue to see a boost in playing time while Lee is out.
Apr 23 - 1:21 PM

Draymond Green (ankle) did not participate in a six-minute scrimmage on Wednesday.

He's still fully expected to play on Thursday. Green is logging huge minutes in the postseason, averaging 14.5 points, 12.0 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.5 blocks, 3.0 steals and 1.5 treys. He'll likely just have his ankle heal when the Warriors have some time off after the first round.
Apr 22 - 7:51 PM

David Lee (back) is doubtful to play in Game 3 against the Pelicans.

It's not a surprise and the Warriors don't need him anyway. Draymond Green is logging 42 minutes per game and is on his way to his second outstanding run in the postseason.
Apr 22 - 7:48 PM

Coach Monty Williams said he feels like the Pelicans could have fouled Andrew Bogut more.

Williams also jokingly added that he's concerned Stephen Curry will see the hack-a-Bogut play and shoot a three. The Pelicans went with a hack-a-Bogut in the first half, so there could be a lot of free throws going Bogut's way in Game 3.
Apr 22 - 5:56 PM

David Lee (back) is not expected to play in Game 3 on Thursday.

He is listed as "out" on the Warriors' injury report as he continues to rest his strained lower back. It's an easily-aggravated injury so his absence isn't surprising, especially with Draymond Green and Marreese Speights ably handling the PF position.
