Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

The Warriors assigned Damian Jones and Chris Boucher to Santa Cruz.

This is a good sign that the Warriors are getting some players back for this weekend.
Mar 21 - 6:33 PM

Omri Casspi (ankle) did some work at practice on Wednesday.

He's still day-to-day, but he reportedly won't be back until next week. Casspi is having a rough season regarding his health, and there's a chance that he's cut to make room for Quinn Cook.
Mar 21 - 3:54 PM

Klay Thompson (right thumb) did some work in the weight room on Wednesday.

He had a wrap over his right thumb, and he did some other work in practice. Thompson could be getting closer to a return next week and he is set for a re-evaluation tomorrow. Maybe he'll have a chance to return this weekend, but then again the Warriors may just keep him on the sidelines.
Mar 21 - 3:49 PM

Kevin Durant (incomplete rib cartilage fracture) went through non-contact practice on Wednesday.

He has been ruled out basically the rest of March, but the Warriors have little incentive to bring him back early. Durant's injury may have made him only day-to-day in other situations, but the team continues to talk about making sure they're close to 100 percent for the playoffs. With him out, Nick Young, Pat McCaw and Andre Iguodala will pick up most of the wing minutes.
Mar 21 - 3:46 PM

Stephen Curry (ankle) went through practice on Wednesday.

He's getting closer and has been targeting a return for Friday night. Curry appears to be the closest to playing of the Warriors All-Stars, and he's been progressing for over a week now. He is going to get rest at some point, but maybe he's out there for Friday and Sunday. This would hurt Quinn Cook's value in a big way, making him a drop candidate.
Mar 21 - 3:39 PM

Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) did not practice on Wednesday.

This certainly puts his status in doubt for Friday against the Hawks. After Monday's game, Green said the Warriors are likely to rest more "here and there" now that they're basically locked in for the No. 2 seed. We're expecting Green to sit Friday or Sunday, or perhaps both games. If he's out, that could mean more run for Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell.
Mar 21 - 3:36 PM

Stephen Curry (ankle) has been cleared to practice in full and he's hopeful to get back to the court sometime this week.

Curry has spent the past six games on the sidelines, but if he gets in a full practice tomorrow, there's a chance he'll be able to get back out there for Friday's game against the Hawks. Curry may be eased back into things, but Quinn Cook's value will take a fairly large hit once Curry is fully up to speed. If not Friday, it sounds like Curry will be back by Sunday at the latest.
Mar 20 - 5:17 PM

Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) told reporters after Monday's game that his injury is "not serious."

Green took a knee to the midsection in the first half of Friday's loss to the Spurs. He went to the locker room and was later ruled out of the game. However, Green downplayed the injury afterward. "It'll be fine," said Green. "I think it's just kind of something that's kind of at the peak right now, but it's calmed down a little bit since it happened. So, it's not that serious." The Warriors don't play again until Friday, and it seems he plans to play in that contest.
Mar 20 - 10:53 AM

Stephen Curry is targeting a return from his ankle injury on Friday against the Hawks.

He only played two minutes on March 8 and hasn't played since, but the Warriors don't play again until Friday, and it sounds like Curry should be ready to play in that one. His right ankle will be officially re-evaluated on Tuesday and if all goes well, Curry will have two full days of practice and a shootaround before Friday's game. Watch for updates prior to the Hawks game.

Mar 20 - 2:05 AM

Quinn Cook (right hand contusion) scored 20 points with five rebounds, five assists, two triples and four turnovers in an 89-75 loss to the Spurs on Monday.

He was second on the Warriors in minutes played with 38 and continues to step up for a team that has injuries to all four of their superstars. Stephen Curry (ankle) is going to be re-evaluated before Friday's game vs. Atlanta, but if he misses more time Cook has proved to be a solid fantasy asset. Over his last three starts, Cook is averaging 24.3 points, 4.0 assists, 4.3 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 4.0 triples with 38 or more minutes in each. Not bad for a player with a two-way contract.
Mar 20 - 12:37 AM

Andre Iguodala played through a bruised left shoulder on Monday vs. the Spurs, playing 25 minutes with 10 points, five rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and one triple.

In addition to his shoulder injury, he's also had issues with his knee and wrist. The Warriors don't have the luxury of resting him right now, as their four best players are currently sidelined. Iggy hasn't been anything special in his last three games since Kevin Durant (ribs, rest) went down, averaging 10.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.0 triples. He's not a must-own player with the Warriors off until Friday.
Mar 20 - 12:27 AM

Jordan Bell started the second half for Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) on Monday vs. the Spurs, scoring a single point with three boards, one assist and two blocks in 23 minutes.

The Warriors seem content to spread the frontcourt minutes to five or six different players, limiting the upside of each. Green's injury isn't serious and the Warriors have three days off, so there are no immediate fantasy pickups. If Green can't go vs. the Hawks on Friday, Bell and Kevon Looney will be on the radar as streaming options.
Mar 20 - 12:18 AM

Kevon Looney (bruised jaw) played well in 22 minutes vs. the Spurs on Monday, scoring 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting with eight rebounds, three steals and one block.

He's now played 20+ minutes in four straight games for the shorthanded Warriors, averaging 10.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 2.3 blocks and 1.8 steals in that span. Draymond Green also went down with a pelvic contusion tonight, so his status for Friday's game vs. the Hawks is up in the air. The Warriors play two more games this week and are off until Friday, so deep-league owners can wait a few days if they want to give Looney a look.
Mar 20 - 12:13 AM

Patrick McCaw (wrist) returned to action on Monday vs. the Spurs, playing 24 minutes with three points, one rebound, one assist, two steals and one block.

He was 1-of-7 from the field, but some rust is to be expected since he's been out since mid-February. He was only expected to play 15-20 minutes, but the Warriors are super thin right now. The Warriors have two more games this week and are off until Friday, so McCaw isn't a pickup at the moment.
Mar 20 - 12:05 AM

Zaza Pachulia played through a bruised right shoulder on Monday vs. the Spurs, scoring six points with three rebounds and one turnover in 14 minutes.

Even with Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) leaving the game early, Pachulia didn't play much as expected. The Warriors are using several bigs in their rotation including JaVale McGee, David West, Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney, so Pachulia likely isn't going to emerge as a fantasy contributor down the stretch.
