Player News - Warriors

Date: Team: Pos:

Klay Thompson said that "hopefully" he will re-sign with the Warriors.

Thompson won't have an opportunity to test free agency until July of 2019, but he is already getting asked questions about potentially leaving Golden State. While being the offensive focal point of another squad would be ideal for his fantasy production, it sounds like Klay is content to play his role on the stacked Warriors. "Playing for one team your whole career is definitely special. Only so many guys have done it in professional sports, so it’ll be a goal of mine," said Thompson. "Hopefully it all works out."

Zaza Pachulia finished with one point, one rebound and one steal in six minutes during Wednesday's loss in Portland.

Pachulia should only be in a handful of deep-league lineups anyway, but his undoing tonight was the Warriors going even smaller than usual -- Nick Young even started the second half in place of Pachulia. The Warriors' loss gives Houston the best record in the NBA heading into the All-Star break, a fact Rockets GM Daryl Morey cheekily acknowledged by Tweeting "#ripcity" after the Blazers victory.
Feb 15 - 1:41 AM

Draymond Green (finger) piled up 16 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists, four blocks and two steals in 39 minutes on Wednesday.

Green rounded out this fantasy gem with 6-of-13 field goals and 3-of-3 free throws, without a single turnover. He came up with a critical block against C.J. McCollum with 1:41 remaining, but the Warriors couldn't get over the hump in an eventual 123-117 loss. Draymond heads into the All-Star break healthy, with top-25 fantasy value on the season, so his owners aren't complaining.
Feb 15 - 1:41 AM

Nick Young started the second half in place of Zaza Pachulia on Wednesday, but he went scoreless on 0-of-3 shooting with two rebounds and one steal in 15 minutes.

The Warriors trailed by 12 points at halftime and coach Steve Kerr decided to mix things up with a small lineup. We're not likely to see this often, though, and the real boost to Young's fantasy outlook came before the game with Patrick McCaw (wrist) ruled out approximately four weeks. Young still isn't worth touching in most leagues, though.
Feb 15 - 1:39 AM

Kevon Looney (knee) didn't record a statistic in three minutes of action on Wednesday.

Looney was questionable with right knee soreness and his availability tonight suggests it's nothing serious. He's nowhere near having fantasy appeal.
Feb 15 - 1:38 AM

Andre Iguodala didn't attempt a single field goal or free throw in 29 minutes on Wednesday, collecting three rebounds and with assist and no other stats.

Iguodala is always a low-usage player for the Warriors, but he took it to an extreme tonight. The 29 minutes were his highest since Jan. 10, so maybe he'll earn more minutes until Patrick McCaw (wrist) gets back in approximately four weeks. Even if he does see a bump from his current 25.5 minutes per game, he's not a viable option in 12-team leagues.
Feb 15 - 1:36 AM

Kevin Durant was on fire Wednesday, scoring a season-high 50 points on 17-of-27 field goals and 10-of-10 free throws with seven rebounds, six assists and six 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

His heel went out of bounds on a 3-pointer that would have brought the Warriors within one point with 8.8 seconds left, but on a night when his teammates were struggling, Durant was a one-man wrecking crew. He even made consecutive four-point plays during an 18-point outburst in the third quarter, giving him 13 such plays in his auspicious career. This is the most he's scored with the Warriors, and his highest-scoring game since 2014, sending fantasy owners into the All-Star break smiling.
Feb 15 - 1:29 AM

Patrick McCaw suffered a small fracture in his left wrist and will be out approximately four weeks, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.com.

Coach Steve Kerr called the wrist injury "worrisome" earlier today and it's apparently worse than the Warriors thought. McCaw's sophomore season has been a letdown after he burst on the scene as a rookie. With him out, Nick Young, Omri Casspi, Shaun Livingston and Andre Iguodala could play more.
Feb 14 - 3:40 PM

Kevon Looney (knee) is available to play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

With Draymond Green (finger) back in action, the Warriors won't be needing Looney. He's played better than expected and it'll be interesting to see how Jordan Bell fits when he comes back.
Feb 14 - 2:55 PM

Draymond Green (finger) will play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He did not play on Monday and was more of an assistant coach against the Suns. Green's injury has not been considered serious, and the Warriors have been cautious with injuries this season. He should see his normal workload as the Warriors try to end their first half on a high note.
Feb 14 - 2:36 PM

Patrick McCaw (left wrist, right wrist) will not play against the Blazers on Wednesday.

The right wrist is a little "worrisome" and he is getting treatment on both. McCaw is probably going to stay down in the G League once he's back to full strength, so he's not much of a fantasy asset.
Feb 14 - 2:32 PM

Kevon Looney (right knee soreness) is questionable for Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.

He only played 14 minutes on Monday with Draymond Green (finger) out, so there aren't any real fantasy implications here. If Looney can't go, JaVale McGee, Omri Casspi and David West are the candidates to pick up minutes.
Feb 13 - 7:05 PM

Patrick McCaw (right wrist sprain) is doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Blazers.

He played through a sprained left thumb on Monday, but that's when he picked up the wrist injury. With the All-Star break coming up, McCaw has basically no shot of playing. Look for Nick Young and Andre Iguodala to potentially pick up his minutes.
Feb 13 - 7:03 PM

Draymond Green (sprained left index finger) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game vs. Portland.

Green did not play Monday vs. Phoenix due to the finger injury. Although coach Steve Kerr said the injury isn't serious, the Warriors may choose to err on the side of caution, as Wednesday's contest will Golden State's final game before the All-Star break. We should have an update on Draymond's status after Wednesday morning's shootaround. Omri Casspi started in place of Green on Monday and posted a strong double-double, finishing with 19 points and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes.
Feb 13 - 6:54 PM

Nick Young hit 5-of-10 shots and three 3-pointers for 16 points, three rebounds and two steals in 24 minutes of Monday's 129-83 blowout win over the Suns.

This was a garbage-time special and Young had not scored more than nine points in his previous four games. He'll have his garbage-time moments the rest of the way, but figuring out when they're coming will be next to impossible.
