Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

The Warriors are uncertain when Shaun Livingston (toe surgery) will be able to play.

He's questionable to start the season after his surgery back on on Aug. 15. Livingston was fantastic in Brooklyn due partially to his versatility and the team's lack of depth, but the Warriors won't need him nearly as much. He won't be worth drafting in most fantasy leagues due to his lower upside.

Andew Bogut (ribs) has been doing some 5-on-5 workouts in recent weeks at a Warriors facility.

He didn't participate at the FIBA World Cup, but he's been working out since June. Bogut played 27.5 minutes per game before the All-Star break last season, but his playing time dropped to 23.7 per game after that. The Warriors will likely keep him around 24 minutes per game in 2014-15 and he has a lot of injury risk, so he's only a late-round pick in standard drafts.

David Lee is expected to be healthy for training camp.

He had a minor procedure for a core muscle injury back in July, but was expected to be ready in August. Lee has been stuck with all sorts of injuries and the Warriors may give some of his minutes to Draymond Green to help keep him fresh for the playoffs.

Andrew Bogut has been taking full contact during the Warriors open gym scrimmages this month, and his fractured rib that sidelined him for the end of the 2013-14 season has fully healed.

"My body feels great," said Bogut, who returned to working out in mid-June after his fractured rib healed. "All of my injuries have been of the high-impact variety. The only thing I can do to change that is to be a p*** and avoid contact at all costs.. I’ll still take charges and go for blocked shots. Every now and then, I’ll get a knock." Bogut was impressive while on the court last season, averaging 7.3 points, 10.0 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game, however he is a huge injury risk as he only made it through 67 games. The last (and only) time Bogut made it through a full season was in 2006, so he's only worth a gamble in the very late rounds of your draft.

Jordan Crawford has agreed to a contract with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association.

This is an interesting move for a player who averaged 13.7 points and 5.7 assists through 39 games last season, but the 25-year-old wasn't receiving more than veteran minimum offers from NBA teams. While Crawford may end up returning to the NBA after the CBA season ends in February, he doesn't need to be on fantasy radars entering 2014-15 drafts.

Marreese Speights pleaded not guilty to a charge of driving under the influence.

He was arrested in Tampa Bay on the morning after his 27th birthday back in August. Speights will likely receive a suspension after his trial is over, which will likely be two or three games. He will serve as depth behind oft-injured Andrew Bogut this year and isn't worth drafting in most leagues.

Festus Ezeli, who had knee surgery in June of 2013, still isn't running full speed, but hopes to be ready to start doing more basketball activities when training camp starts.

Ezeli, who was only expected to need six-to-nine months to recover is now past 15 months without doing much in the gym. He hasn't played five-on-five and was forced to miss summer league with shin inflammation. He says the shin is better, but he's only been doing one-on-one work with coaches. "I don’t think I’ll be 100 percent until I actually start playing in games, but I’m close enough," Ezeli said. "I’m getting ready for training camp, which will give me a chance to start running and doing all of that stuff I love on the court." There's no reason to draft or own Ezeli until he proves he's healthy again.

Brandon Rush stated during a recent interview that his knee finally feels 100 percent healthy, and he's getting over the mental hurdle of attacking the rim.

Rush will be playing in a reserve role for the Warriors, and he's not likely to average enough minutes for standard league consideration.
Sep 15 - 4:48 PM

Shaun Livingston (right toe surgery) said he felt "great" after his cast was removed on Thursday and that he hopes to be ready for the season opener.

Livingston was on a minimum 6-8 week timetable based on an August 15 report and this fits snugly into that outlook. Leandro Barbosa was brought on as insurance along with July acquisition Brandon Rush, so the Warriors have mobilized to play it safe, and along with this good news we haven't heard anything specific that would cause us to rule out his chances of playing on Opening Night.

Jerry West and the Warriors agreed to a two-year extension through 2016-2017 on Wednesday.

West had one year remaining on his current deal, making this a three-year commitment. The extension comes in the midst of reports that West, now 76, was considering retiring for good. Now he and Steve Kerr will be responsible for building a championship team around their backcourt of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.
Sep 10 - 3:34 PM

Klay Thompson was one of six Team USA players in double-digits on Tuesday, scoring a game-high 20 points in a quarterfinals win over Slovenia.

Slovenia stayed close throughout the first two quarters, but Thompson made four 3-pointers and the U.S. used a 53-38 rebounding advantage to pull away in the second half. Team USA will return to action vs. Lithuania in the semifinals on Thursday.
Sep 9 - 5:14 PM

The Warriors signed Summer League standout Justin Holiday on Monday.

This is just a training camp invite, and with the Dubs deep on the wings, Holiday will need to impress to make the Warriors' official roster. Holiday, brother of Jrue Holiday, averaged 14.8 points, and 5.0 rebounds while starting for the Warriors Summer League squad, and also spent last season playing overseas in Hungary. Holiday should not be targeted in any leagues.
Sep 8 - 5:44 PM

Stephen Curry caught fire vs. Mexico during Saturday's 86-63 win, scoring 20 points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal, six 3-pointers and no turnovers.

He was hitting threes in transition, in halfcourt and was just unstoppable. Curry shot 7-of-10 from the field, so his effective field goal percentage today was a tidy 100.0. He struggled in the group stage, but it was only a matter of time before he got hot.
Sep 6 - 11:44 AM

Mitchell Watt signed a deal with the Warriors.

He played with the Warriors in Las Vegas Summer League after he played two seasons in Israel. Watt is likely with the team for training camp and he'll need to play the best basketball of his life to make the team.
Sep 5 - 11:37 AM

The Warriors and general manager Bob Myers agreed to a three-year extension on Thursday.

His deal was due to expire following the 2014-15 season since taking over the job back in April 2012. Myers has helped turned the Warriors around with moves like the Andrew Bogut-Monta Ellis deal as well as doing well in free agency and drafting guys like Draymond Green.
