Date: Team: Pos:

Andre Iguodala (right hip tightness) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Kings.

Iguodala didn't practice on Thursday and we're unlikely to get another update until Golden State's shootaround on Friday afternoon. Steve Kerr said he's not concerned about Iguodala's hip, though, so this shouldn't be a long-term issue.

Shaun Livingston (bruised pelvis) won't play vs. the Kings on Friday.

Steve Kerr did say he's not concerned about Livingston's injury. The Warriors will give Livingston sporadic rest throughout the season anyway, so it's not shocking to see him taking the cautious route. Quinn Cook gets a handful more minutes but there are no real fantasy winners here.
Dec 13 - 3:16 PM

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) might not make his season debut until January or February, according to Bay Area sportscaster Greg Papa.

"The feeling that I got from being around it last night, DeMarcus is not nearly as close as we think he is," said Papa during his Thursday morning radio show. "I'm hearing well into January, maybe February before he comes back." This isn't the most reliable reporting, but it also wouldn't be all that surprising to see Cousins' debut delayed. The Warriors have never offered an official timetable, and he's coming back from the most devasting injury in basketball, so right now, it's a total guessing game as to when he'll be back.
Dec 13 - 12:28 PM

Shaun Livingston (pelvis) is unlikely to suit up for Friday's game against the Kings.

Warriors' reporter Monte Poole briefly spoke with Livingston after Wednesday's loss to the Raptors, and Livingston didn't seem optimistic about getting out there for Friday's game. Steve Kerr said he'll give an update following Friday's shootaround, but if Livingston is forced to the sidelines, Quinn Cook would pick up most of his minutes.
Dec 13 - 9:21 AM

Stephen Curry struggled in 33 minutes on Wednesday with 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting, three rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and four turnovers.

Maybe Steph was distracted by the recent uproar about his tongue-in-cheek suggestion that NASA astronauts never landed on the moon? That silliness aside, even two-time MVPs have off nights and the matchup gets plenty of credit -- the Raptors have been the third-toughest opponent for point guards in fantasy. He gets a much cushier opponent in Sacramento on Friday.
Dec 13 - 1:33 AM

Shaun Livingston suffered a pelvic contusion during Wednesday's game, finishing with one point and one rebound in 15 minutes.

Livingston walked into the locker room under his own power, with a slight limp, and he'll be reevaluated on Thursday. The Warriors' next game is vs. Sacramento on Friday, and if Livingston isn't cleared there will be more minutes available for Quinn Cook.
Dec 13 - 1:33 AM

In his second game back from injury, Draymond Green posted two points on 1-of-5 shooting with seven assists, five rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 25 minutes.

Golden State lost in Toronto two weeks ago, 131-128, but that was without Draymond and Steph Curry. They didn't have any excuses tonight but still came up short in a blowout loss at home, and Green committed four of the team's 19 turnovers. Green's fantasy lines usually have a few caveats but he still manages to pile up counting stats -- the trick is for him to stay healthy.
Dec 13 - 1:31 AM

Kevin Durant's game-high 30 points, seven boards and five assists weren't enough vs. Toronto on Wednesday.

Durant trails only James Harden for usage at 31.1%, but that had dipped to 25.9% since Stephen Curry returned on Dec. 1. Offensive touches weren't an issue tonight with Durant going 13-of-22 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers, but he got no help from his teammates -- Draymond Green, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson were a combined 11-of-34 from the field. The Warriors' real-world struggles aside, KD is an every-night goldmine for fantasy.
Dec 13 - 1:29 AM

Andre Iguodala (right hip tightness) will not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

This will be his second straight game on the sidelines, which should again translate to an uptick in minutes for Alfonzo McKinnie. The Warriors play again on Friday in Sacramento, and for now, we'll be considering Iguodala questionable for that one.
Dec 12 - 2:05 PM

Prior to Monday's game again the Timberwolves, Steve Kerr said that Kevon Looney has "firmly established himself" as the Warriors best option at center.

It's only a matter of time until DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is deemed healthy enough to return to action, but for the time being the Warriors are in need of production at center. While Looney was relatively quiet Monday, scoring two points (1-of-4 FG) with five rebounds, two assists and one blocked shot, he's been a valuable piece due to the team's lack of depth in the middle.
Dec 11 - 2:03 AM

Kevin Durant scored 22 points (7-of-15 FG, 4-of-4 FT) with five rebounds, three assists, three steals and four 3-pointers Monday against the Timberwolves.

One game after scoring a season-low 11 points Durant rebounded, making nearly half of his shot attempts and shooting 4-of-7 from beyond the arc Monday night. Next up for KD and the Warriors is a matchup with Toronto, a team he hung 51 points on in their first meeting this season (November 29).
Dec 11 - 1:42 AM

Klay Thompson scored 26 points (8-of-22 FG, 6-of-6 FT) with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, on blocked shot and four 3-pointers in 36 minutes Monday against the Timberwolves.

Shooting just 35.4% from three for the season, Thompson has steadily improved his numbers after being in a slump to start the season. Over his last five games the shooting guard, who was 4-of-7 from three Monday, is shooting 43.8% from three with 2.8 makes per game. With Draymond Green back in the fold, Thompson stands to find even more quality shot opportunities moving forward.
Dec 11 - 1:34 AM

Draymond Green (toe) scored seven points (3-of-8 FG) with ten rebounds, seven assists and one blocked shot in 35 minutes Monday against the Timberwolves.

Playing in his first game since November 15, Green had a noticeable impact on the Warriors' energy to start the game. Golden State jumped out to a 13-0 lead, with the ball movement being sharper than it has been at times this season. Green still has some work to do with regards to his sharpness. But the fact that he was able to play 35 minutes in his first game back is certainly a positive.
Dec 11 - 1:26 AM

Stephen Curry scored 38 points (12-of-23 FG, 7-of-7 FT) with seven rebounds, six assists, seven 3-pointers, two steals and one blocked shot in 35 minutes Monday against the Timberwolves.

Curry made seven of his 14 three-point attempts Monday night, and he's now scored 30 points or more in three of his five games since returning from a groin injury. During this stretch the two-time MVP is averaging 31.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game, doing so on 51.0% shooting from the field and 51.8% from three (11.2 attempts per game).
Dec 11 - 1:05 AM

Andre Iguodala (right hip tightness) will not play in Monday's game against the Timberwolves.

This news was a bit of a surprise, as Iguodala did take part in pregame warmups before it was decided that he could not go. The injury isn't considered to be major, as the veteran wing is expected to be available for the Warriors' game against the Raptors Wednesday night. Alfonzo McKinnie stands to see a minutes increase as a result of Iguodala's absence.
