Andrew Bogut, C1/8/2015 4:36:00 PM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut played 15 minutes in his return to action on Wednesday.
Insight: He said he felt good after his first game in about a month. Bogut will likely continue to be eased back in, making it difficult for owners to start him right away. No matter what, David Lee's and Marresse Speights' values take a hit with Golden State's big man back in the fold.
Andrew Bogut, C1/7/2015 9:46:00 PM

Marreese Speights, FHot1/5/2015 4:07:00 PM
Description: Warriors center Marreese Speights should get plenty of work with both Andrew Bogut and Festus Ezeli sidelined.

Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut played just two minutes on Monday versus the Timberwolves and now we know the reason for that - a right knee irritation

Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut played just two minutes on Monday versus the Timberwolves.
Insight: We warned owners about a hour before Monday's game that Bogut is dealing with some knee irritation and to expect his minutes to be cut. Even so, it was disappointing to see him play so little. Bogut grabbed four rebounds and that's it.

Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry tied Klay Thompson with 21 points scored to lead Golden State past Minnesota, 102-86.

Insight: Green played very well, going 11-of-20 from the field, 2-of-2 from the line, and 7-of-13 from deep. He also chipped in seven rebounds, three assists, four steals, and one turnover. His value should take a hit once David Lee returns, so owners may want to consider selling high.
David Lee, PF12/4/2014 1:33:00 PM

Description: Golden State forward Draymond Green is probable for Thursday's game against New Orleans while dealing with a sprained right thumb.

Insight: Thompson has become a top shooting guard, averaging 20.9 ppg, 3.6 rpg, 3.2 apg, 1.3 spg and 41 three-pointers in 15 games. If he can't play Leandro Barbosa would likely see more time.

Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is questionable for Tuesday's game against Orlando while dealing with a sprained left ankle.
Insight: X-rays came back negative and Curry says he's not worried, but given his injury history, fantasy owners should be. Curry isn't replacable with his 23.8 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 7.8 apg, 1.9 spg and more than three three-pointers per night.
Klay Thompson, G11/28/2014 9:32:00 PM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson hit three 3-pointers to score 17 points in the, 106-101, victory over the Hornets on Friday.

Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry did not shoot well from behind the arc, but still scored 26 points on Friday against the Hornets.

Description: Warriors guard Leandro Barbosa missed Tuesday's game against Miami with a sprianed right knee and is questionable for Friday's game against Charlotte.
Insight: It looked a lot more serious when it happened, but he actually practiced Monday. He's not been fantasy worthy seeing just 16 mpg behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.
Stephen Curry, G11/26/2014 9:36:00 PM
Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry did it against in Wednesday's win against Orlando.

Insight: He was absurd all night, and also finished with seven assists, six rebounds, three steals, one block, and two turnovers. Owners would be greedy to ask for much more.
David Lee, PF11/25/2014 11:45:00 AM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee is hoping to return Dec 2 from his hamstring injury.
Insight: Lee will not be pushed so that date might actually be early. Draymond Green (12.5 ppg, 7.5 rpg, 3.3 apg) will continue to get most of the minutes until then.
Andrew Bogut, C11/25/2014 11:43:00 AM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut is questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami while dealing with a bruised orbital bone.
Insight: Bogut made it through the morning shootaround, so is more likely closer to probable than questionable. He's averaging 8.0 ppg, 9.2 rpg, 2.8 apg, 1.8 bpg).
Leandro Barbosa, G11/25/2014 11:40:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Leandro Barbosa is questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami with a sprianed right knee.
Insight: It looked a lot more serious when it happened, but he actually practiced Monday. He's not been fantasy worthy seeing just 16 mpg behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored 14 points to lead all starts for Golden State as they defeated Utah, 101-88, on Friday.

Andre Iguodala, SF11/22/2014 9:23:00 AM
Description: Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala led Golden State with 17 points against the Jazz while coming off the bench on Friday.
Insight: Iguodala had his best game shooting, going 7-for-8 from the field and making both 3-pointers he took. He was able to turn in those numbers in 25 minutes, which is his season average. Iguodala should continue to see that kind of volume in minutes and shot attempts, but he obviously won't continue to make them at a 87.5 percent clip.
Stephen Curry, G11/16/2014 11:11:00 AM
Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry was quiet again on Saturday with 15 shot attempts and 19 points.
Insight: The fact this is a quiet night speaks volumes to the fantasy expectations surrounding Curry. In the past three games, Curry has not reached the 20-point mark. He did have nine assists and five rebounds as well.

Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry was quiet Thursday night taking just a dozen shots and scoring 17 points with three rebounds and five assists.

Description: Warriors small forward Harrison Barnes scored 22 points on 9-of-12 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds versus the Spurs.
Insight: It was by far Barnes best fantasy night. His 39 minutes and 12 shots were season-highs, so it is hard to count on a repeat performance. In addition, with David Lee returning soon, Barnes' fantasy value is short-term anyway.
Klay Thompson, G11/12/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson returned from his hand injury on Tuesday and scored 29 points against the Spurs.
Insight: That, however, was not enough as Golden State lost, 113-100. The Warriors have now dropped two in a row after a 5-0 start. Thompson shot 5-for-6 from the 3-point line on Tuesday and had five rebounds and four assists.
Klay Thompson, G11/11/2014 9:29:00 PM

Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson is probable for Tuesday's game against San Antonio while playing with a sprained right hand.

Andrew Bogut, C11/9/2014 11:28:00 AM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut had a ridiculous 18 rebounds Saturday night.

Description: Warriors forward David Lee (hamstring) will miss at least two more games and have an MRI, according to Golden State Warriors beat writer Diamond Leung.

Description: Warriors forward David Lee (hamstring) will miss Sunday's game against Portland.

Klay Thompson, G11/2/2014 10:46:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson scored a career-high 41 points on Saturday against the Lakers.
Insight: Thompson went 14-for-18 from the field and took just one shot fewer than Stephen Curry. Thompson was also 8-of-9 from the free-throw line. He also had five rebounds. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect much more than scoring from Thompson, but who targeted Thompson are loving him anyway right now.
Klay Thompson, G10/31/2014 6:29:00 PM

David Lee, PF10/28/2014 4:28:00 PM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee (hamstring) missed Tuesday's practice and is doubtful for Wednesday's game against Sacramento.
Insight: If Lee can't go, Draymond Green is the most likely to start in his spot. Lee averaged 18.2 points per game and 9.3 rebounds per game last season.
Harrison Barnes, SF10/22/2014 12:07:00 PM
Description: The starting small forward position in Golden State is one of the team's biggest questions, heading into the 2014-15 season.
Insight: Last season, Andre Iguodala was firmly entrenched as the starter, but Barnes maybe the favorite heading into this season. He will look to improve upon his averages of 9.5 points per game, 4.0 rebounds per game, 1.5 assists per game, 0.8 steals per game, as well as his 40 percent field goal percentage. We think that head coach Steve Kerr will give Barnes the chance to start early in the season, and as a result, those numbers could really improve. However, owners should not target him until the end of all drafts.
Draymond Green, F10/22/2014 12:01:00 PM
Description: Golden State forward Draymond Green will have a chance for increased playing time this season, which should lead to better fantasy numbers.
Insight: In only 21.9 minutes per game last season, Green averaged 6.2 points per game, 5.0 rebounds per game, 0.9 blocks per gaame, and 1.2 steals per game. Owners should expect all of those numbers to go up in 2014-15, and as a result Green should be targeted starting around the 11th round.
Shaun Livingston, G10/22/2014 11:57:00 AM
Description: Golden State guard Shaun Livingston will open the season as the backup point guard, behind superstar Stephen Curry.
Insight: Last season with the Nets, Livingston aaveraged 8.3 points per game, 3.2 assists per game, 3.2 rebounds per game, 1.2 steals per game, while shooting 48 percent from the field and 83 percent from the line. We feel that he could be right around those numbers in 2014-15, with possibly a slight decrease. If owners want Livingston on their teams, he should be target at the end of drafts.
Stephen Curry, G10/22/2014 11:56:00 AM
Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry should be a top-five pick in fantasy basketball drafts.
Insight: He averaged a career-high 24.0 points per game and 8.5 assists per game last season, and seems to only be getting better. Curry also shot 47 percent from the field, 89 percent from the line, while making 3.3 three-pointer per game, along with 1.6 steals per game. Simply put, Curry is a dynamic fantasy option, and should be considered a top-three pick.
Klay Thompson, G10/22/2014 11:55:00 AM
Description: Warriors guard Klay Thompson should be able to average 20 points per game in 2014-15.
Insight: He had a great season in 2013-14, as he averaged 18.4 points per game, 3.1 rebounds per game, 0.9 steals per game, while shooting 44 percent from the field, 80 percent from the line, and knocked down 2.8 three-pointers per game. Thompson is one of the best long-distance shooters in the NBA, and at only 24-years-old, we expect his numbers to only improve.
Andre Iguodala, SF10/22/2014 11:53:00 AM
Description: Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala is coming off his worth statistical season since his rookie season, in 2004-05.
Insight: He averaged only 9.3 points per game, 4.7 rebounds per game, and 4.2 assists per game last season. Iggy was able to shoot 48 percent from the field and give owners one three-pointer game, along with 1.5 steals per game, however he is not the fantasy player he once was. There is still no official word on who will be starting at the small forward position, but no matter what, we would not recommend drafting Iguodala until late in your drafts.
Andrew Bogut, C10/22/2014 11:52:00 AM
Description: The biggest question for Warriors center Andrew Bogut, is whether he can stay on the floor or not.
Insight: He has failed to play in all 82 games since his rookie season in 2005-06, and has not played in over 70 games since 2007-08. However, after playing only 32 games in 2012-13, Bogut was able to suit up for 67 games last season, while giving fantasy owners some productive stats. He will never be a dynamic scorer, as he averaged 7.3 points per game last season, but gives value with his 10.0 rebounds per game and 1.8 blocks per game, along with shooting 63 percent from the field. As a result, Bogut should be targeted starting in the 10th or 11th round of fantasy drafts.
David Lee, PF10/22/2014 11:29:00 AM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee should continue to be a solid fantasy option for the 2014-15 season.
Insight: He will always get you close to a double-double, as Lee averaged 18.2 points per game and 9.3 rebounds per game last season, while shooting 52 percent from the field and 78 percent from the line. Owners should target Lee starting in the fifth round.
Andre Iguodala, SF10/10/2014 6:32:00 PM
Description: Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala broke his nose against the Lakers on Thursday night.
Insight: Golden State said he should be able to play through it, so Igoudala won't miss any playing time. He likely isn't a high fantasy draft pick anyway, but he shouldn't drop on the big board due to this injury.
Ognjen Kuzmic, C8/2/2014 10:00:00 AM
Description: Golden State backup center Ognjen Kuzmic has a stress fracture of his left leg and will miss the FIBA World Cup.
Insight: Kuzmic's timetable for return is about four weeks which means he shouldn't miss any NBA time. He's yet to be a fantasy-worthy center averaging only three minutes per game for the Warriors.
Shaun Livingston, G7/1/2014 9:31:00 PM
Description: Shaun Livingston has agreed to a deal with the Golden State Warriors.
Insight: Livingston will get a three-year deal for the full mid-level exception. He can start at shooting guard if the team trades Klay Thompson for Kevin Love or serve as a backup to both guard spots. Either way, he's more valuable in real life than fantasy. In 76 games with the Nets last season, Livingston averaged 26 minutes but just 8.3 points, 3.2 assists, 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 steals and zero threes.
Klay Thompson, G6/21/2014 4:11:00 PM
Description: Klay Thompson could be on his way out of Golden State. The Warriors are looking to package Thompson as part of a trade for Minnesota forward Kevin Love.
Insight: That doesn't necessarily mean that Thompson would be traded to the Timberwolves. According to the Los Angeles Times, the Warriors could involve a third team in the deal including the Lakers, who were forced to use Wesley Johnson, Nick Young and Xavier Henry at small forward last season. Thompson has averaged 16 ppg on 43.5 percent shooting during his three NBA seasons.
Draymond Green, F5/4/2014 10:47:00 AM
Description: Golden State forward Draymond Green drilled 5-of-8 three-pointers to finish with 24 points Saturday in a loss to the Clippers.
Insight: He averaged 11.9 ppg for the series. Green (6.2 ppg, 5.0 rpg in 82 regular season games) was a jack of all trades for the Warriors this year, logging minutes at both forward positions while even seeing some time at the five. The 24-year-old has a bright future ahead of him.
Jermaine O'Neal, C5/2/2014 6:51:00 PM
Description: Golden State center Jermaine O'Neal underwent an MRI after tweaking his right knee Thursday in Game 6. SOURCE: Ric Bucher, Bleacher Report
Insight: He fully expects to play in Game 7. O'Neal is averaging 7.0 ppg on 58.1 percent shooting for the series. With Andrew Bogut (broken rib) out, O'Neal and David Lee have been splitting time at center.
Stephen Curry, G4/27/2014 9:39:00 PM
Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry led his team to victory in Game 4 of the Western Conference quarterfinals against the Clippers Sunday with 33 points, seven assists, seven rebounds and seven threes.
Insight: Curry hit just 6-of-21 from 3-point range and averaged 18 points and 10 assists over the first three games, but he went off Sunday to tie the series at two games apiece.
Stephen Curry, G4/21/2014 10:22:00 AM
Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry didn't play up to expectation in Game 1 against the Clippers, posting just 14 points and seven assists.
Insight: Yet the Warriors still won the game which is a good sign for Golden State. Curry took 16 shots in Game 1, but didn't get to the free throw line at all. He set career highs with 24 points and 8.5 assists per game this season and added 3.3 threes, 1.6 steals and an .885 free-throw percentage.
Draymond Green, F4/16/2014 2:29:00 PM
Description: Golden State forward Draymond Green isn't expected to play Wednesday in the final game of the regular season, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: The Warriors have already announced that Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O'Neal will sit out to rest for the playoffs. Klay Thompson and Draymond Green will probably dress for the game but won't play, leaving Steve Blake, Jordan Crawford, Harrison Barnes, Marreese Speights and Hilton Armstrong to get most of the minutes for Golden State against the Nuggets.
Andre Iguodala, SF4/16/2014 2:27:00 PM
Description: Golden State small forward Andre Iguodala (rest) will miss Wednesday's game, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Iguodala has been dealing with some knee tendinitis and he'll get a chance to rest up before the postseason. Iggy averaged 9.3 points, 4.7 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.0 threes in 63 games this season.
Klay Thompson, G4/16/2014 2:23:00 PM
Description: Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson may suit up but he isn't expected to play Wednesday, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: The Warriors are resting Stephen Curry, David Lee, Andre Iguodala and Jermaine O'Neal in the final game of the regular season and are expected to keep Thompson and Draymond Green on the bench too. Thompson has averaged a career-high 18.5 points with 3.1 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 2.8 threes in 80 games this season. The only game he missed prior to Wednesday was due to the death of his grandfather back in March.
Jermaine O'Neal, C4/16/2014 2:21:00 PM
Description: Warriors C/PF Jermaine O'Neal (rest) will miss the last game of the regular season Wednesday against the Nuggets, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely with a fractured rib, so Golden State is going to need to get a lot out of the 35-year-old O'Neal (7.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg) in the postseason.
David Lee, PF4/16/2014 2:19:00 PM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee will miss Wednesday's game to rest for the playoffs, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Stephen Curry, GHot4/16/2014 2:17:00 PM
Description: Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will not play Wednesday, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: He's resting for the playoffs. Curry set career highs with 24 points and 8.5 assists per game this season and added 3.3 threes, 1.6 steals and an .885 free-throw percentage.
Andrew Bogut, C4/14/2014 9:22:00 PM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut (fractured rib) said he has been advised that the rib is too close to the right lung to play through the pain, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle. That means he may have to miss the entirety of the postseason.
Insight: Bogut (7.3 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 1.8 bpg) took a shot to the ribs in overtime Sunday night and sustained a fracture. If he plays with the injury there's a risk he'll suffer a punctured lung. The Warriors are going to have to get more out of Jermaine O'Neal and Draymond Green than expected in the playoffs.
Andre Iguodala, SF4/14/2014 8:56:00 PM
Description: Golden State small forward Andre Iguodala (knee) will not play Monday, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: It's probably another precautionary absence to allow the veteran to rest his knee. Harrison Barnes will likely start like he did Friday when Iggy was out but he isn't a good fantasy option.
Andrew Bogut, C4/14/2014 8:51:00 PM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely due to a fractured rib, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Bogut (7.3 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 1.8 bpg) took a shot to the ribs in overtime Sunday night and he'll miss the last two games of the regular season. Jermaine O'Neal and Draymond Green will see more minutes as a result of Bogut's injury.
Andrew Bogut, C4/14/2014 1:55:00 PM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut is questionable for Monday's game against Minnesota.
Insight: Bogut (7.3 ppg, 10.0 rpg, 1.8 bpg) took a shot to the ribs in overtime Sunday night. We're still await word on the x-rays. Jermaine O'Neal (7.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg) would start if Bogut can't go.

Description: Warriors C/PF Jermaine O'Neal (knee) will not play Friday against the Lakers, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: O'Neal has been solid lately with Andrew Bogut and David Lee dealing with injuries but the Warriors will have both players in the lineup Friday. He's missing Friday's game with left knee soreness.

Description: Warriors forward David Lee (nerve irritation) will play Friday, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Lee said he's not 100 percent yet but thinks he's healthy enough to help. Draymond Green will remain relevant with Andre Iguodala (knee) sitting out Friday.

Description: Warriors forward David Lee (nerve irritation) is not expected to play Thursday, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.

David Lee, PF4/7/2014 3:35:00 PM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee still has no timetable for return, according to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury.
Insight: At this point his injury could last into the playoffs and the Warriors don't have anyone who can replace his 18.5 ppg, 9.4 rpg, 2.2 apg.
David Lee, PF4/6/2014 7:50:00 PM
Description: Warriors forward David Lee won't be available Sunday against Utah. SOURCE: Geoff Lepper, NBA.com

Andrew Bogut, C4/5/2014 1:31:00 PM
Description: Golden State center Andrew Bogut missed Friday's game with Sacramento and is doubtful for Sunday's game against Utah due to a hip injury.
Insight: The team is playing it safe because they will need him come playoff time. Jermaine O'Neal has played solid in a backup role and posted 13 points and nine rebounds on Friday night.
Andre Iguodala, SF4/4/2014 9:28:00 PM
Description: Golden State small forward Andre Iguodala is back after missing Wednesday's game with knee tendinitis. SOURCE: John Dickinson, 95.7 The Game
Insight: Iguodala's 9.4 ppg scoring average is his lowest since his rookie season. The good news is that Sacramento, the team Golden State plays on Friday night, has allowed 103.4 ppg this season (25th in the league).

Description: Golden State power forward David Lee (hamstring) wasn't encouraging in his comments to the San Jose Mercury News.

Andre Iguodala, SF4/4/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (right knee tendinitis) has been upgraded to probable for Friday versus Sacramento, according to a San Francisco Chronicle report.
Insight: Iguodala is averaging 9.4 ppg, 4.7 rpg, 4.3 apg, 1.5 spg. He used to be much better at filling a box score.
Andre Iguodala, SF4/2/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Warriors forward Andre Iguodala (right knee) won't play Wednesday, according to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.
Insight: Iguodala was replaced in the starting lineup by Harrison Barnes shortly before game time and won't enter off the bench. He played 41 minutes and had 16 points, eight rebounds and seven assists Tuesday at Dallas, so he's probably just getting a rest after missing three games due to knee tendinitis in late March.
David Lee, PF4/2/2014 7:28:00 PM
Description: Golden State power forward David Lee (hamstring) will not play Wednesday, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Andrew Bogut has already been ruled out, so Draymond Green (9 pts, 7 reb, 6 ast, 2 stl, 1 blk Tuesday) and Jermaine O'Neal (20 pts, 8 reb, 1 blk Tuesday) will likely start again. Coach Mark Jackson said he'll monitor O'Neal's minutes Wednesday, so we should see more of Marreese Speights.

Description: Golden State power forward David Lee (hamstring) is "extremely doubtful" for Wednesday's game, according to csnbayarea.com.

Description: Golden State power forward David Lee (hamstring) did not play Tuesday against Dallas and is questionable for Wednesday's game against San Antonio.

Jermaine O'Neal, CHot4/2/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Warriors backup C/PF Jermaine O'Neal should get a third consecutive start with center Andrew Bogut sidelined.
Insight: O'Neal (7.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg) has gotten the start at center these past two games averaging 14.0 ppg and 10 rebounds. That's certainly fantasy-worthy production.
Andrew Bogut, C4/2/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Golden State center Andrew Bogut didn't travel with the team for its two-game road trip of which Wednesday at San Antonio is the final game.
Insight: He'll still nursing a bruised pelvis. Jermaine O'Neal (7.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg) has gotten the start at center these past two games averaging 14.0 ppg and 10 rebounds. That's certainly fantasy- worthy production.

Description: Golden State power forward David Lee (hamstring) will not play Sunday against the Knicks, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Description: Golden State power forward David Lee is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Knicks. SOURCE: Marc Berman, New York Post
Insight: He missed Friday's game with a strained hamstring and looks destined to do the same on Sunday. Marreese Speights (5.3 ppg, 3.3 rpg) is likely to start in Lee's place though Draymond Green (6.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg) should see minutes at power forward as well.
Andrew Bogut, C3/30/2014 3:34:00 PM
Description: Warriors center Andrew Bogut has already been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Knicks. SOURCE: Adrian Wojnarowski, Yahoo Sports
