Kevon Looney to play over 30 minutes per game next season?

Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr referred to Kevon Looney as one of the team's most important players, and that he is ready to take on his largest role yet. In addition, Kerr believes that Looney could start expanding his range and firing up some corner threes.

Fantasy Impact

While Looney is only 5-for-26 from beyond the arc in his NBA career, we could certainly envision a significant improvement in his offensive output this upcoming season. He is worth considering as a late round gem on draft day.

Kevon Looney to stay with Golden State

Kevon Looney has re-signed with the Warriors for $15M across three years. Looney was a first-round draft pick out of UCLA by the Warriors in 2015.

Fantasy Impact

With Jordan Bell signing with the Wolves, the Grizzlies acquiring Andre Iguodala, DeMarcus Cousins unlikely to return, and Shaun Livingston expected to retire, Looney should play a significant role with the Warriors. His consistent production remained steady during the playoffs even as he dealt with a rib injury. Looney will likely improve upon his career line of 4.5 PPG and 3.8 RPG, as head coach Steve Kerr will have to rely on the big man to chew up more minutes.

Kevon Looney healthy enough to play in Game 4

Kevon Looney is able to play tonight in Game 4 of the NBA Finals according to Coach Steve Kerr. Looney suffered a non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture in Game 2 after landing on his back and missed Game 3 as a result.

Fantasy Impact

Looney's initial diagnosis appeared grim, and the Warriors were preparing as if he would be unable to return this season. While Looney is only averaging 7.2 points and 4.6 rebounds per game these playoffs, he provides valuable minutes as part of Coach Kerr's rotation of centers. The Warriors need all the warm bodies they can get too, with DeMarcus Cousins and Klay Thompson fighting through injuries and Kevin Durant still on the mend. The hope is that Looney can operate as his typical self - cleaning up the glass, switching on pick-and-rolls, and playing above average defense against the Raptors’ bigs. He is unlikely to post anything above his career norms, but his steady contributions can help the Warriors tie this series tonight.

Kevon Looney likely out for remainder of finals with fractured collarbone

Kevon Looney suffered the injury sometime in the first half of Game 2 Sunday night in Toronto. He underwent an MRI exam Monday, which revealed he had a non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture and will be out indefinitely.

Fantasy Impact

Looney had logged some tough minutes throughout the playoffs so this is another blow for the embattled Warriors. With Kevin Durant still out with a calf issue and Klay Thompson questionable with a hamstring strain the Dubs will be short handed yet again for Game 3 in Oakland on Wednesday. DeMarcus Cousins, who had a phenomenal Game 2, along with Andrew Bogut will have to step up and fill the void left by Looney's absence.

Kevon Looney scores 19 in Game 2

Kevon Looney scored 19 points in Game 2 on Monday against the Clippers filling in for Cousins. Looney added five rebounds in 19 minutes while shooting a perfect 6-for-6 from the floor.

Fantasy Impact

Looney and Andrew Bogut will benefit in minutes with Cousins suffering a torn quad in Game 2. Looney is the better DFS option over Bogut and Jordan Bell.
