Fantasy Impact: Injuries have really taken a toll on Looney this season, forcing him to miss 45 games due to a combination of neuropathy and abdominal soreness. After successful surgery, the 24-year old big man will begin rehab immediately and is expected to be ready for the start of the 2020-2021 season. In 20 games this season, Looney averaged 3.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game.

When discussing the possibility of the Warriors using their potential top-five pick in the 2020 NBA draft on Memphis C James Wiseman, Marquese Chriss stated, "I’m just thankful to have an organization that believes in me...At the end of the day, if they do draft (Wiseman), I know they’re making the best decision that they can for this team and that they feel will be beneficial for us to win a championship." (Source: Connor Letourneau on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A report came out a couple of weeks ago claiming that James Wiseman was atop the Warriors draft board, suggesting that Chriss may not be in the Warriors future plans. However, Chriss' play after the all-star break renewed the Warriors confidence in his ability to man the center position next season. Chriss averaged 12.7 points (on 58.4% shooting) while talling 9.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 0.8 steals across 26 minutes in nine games after the all-star break. According to multiple sources, "the front office is so optimistic about his future, it would be comfortable entering next season with him as the starting center." Chriss provides a lot of versatility for fantasy owners as he contributes in all categories except three-pointers. If he can hold onto the starting center role, he could be a good mid-round selection for fantasy owners next season.

Andrew Wiggins was acquired by the Warriors with the expectation of being the team's starting SF next season. (Source: Anthony Slater of the Athletic)

Fantasy Impact: The Warriors have been rumored to acquire superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, and the team would need to shed salary in order to have any chance in acquiring him. Wiggins currently makes $31.6 million and makes the most sense to move in a possible sign-and-trade. The Warriors reportedly traded for Wiggins with the intention of the 25-year-old being the team's starting SF next season. Wiggins is having a solid 2019-2020 campaign, averaging 21.8 points, 5.1 rebounds, 3.7 assists, 1.0 blocks and 2.1 triples across 54 games for the TImberwolves and Warriors.

Fantasy Impact: Thompson sustained a torn ACL in his left knee in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals. When Mychal Thompson was asked if Klay was fully healthy, "I don’t know. He’s walking around fine. Who knows if he’s cleared to play. He has to get that clearance from his doctors and the Warriors. They haven’t talked about that yet." Thompson signed a five-year, $190 million contract this off-season, but has already been ruled out for the remainder of 2019-2020 campaign, even if the NBA (suspended due to the coronavirus) resumes.

Warriors F Draymond Green appeared on the "All the Smoke" podcast and stated, "If I can get that back to above 36 percent -- possibly shoot 40 percent, which I know I'm more than capable of -- the league is in trouble again if I can do that. That's my goal." (Source: NBC Sports)

Fantasy Impact: Green's been battling several injuries this season but shared more details on a hip injury from 2018 that caused him to "restructure" his shooting mechanics - which he is admittingly still working through. Dray looks poised for a fantasy resurgence next season and having Steph Curry and Klay Thompson back will certainly elevate his chances.

Fantasy Impact: JTA started against the Clippers but only lasted about a minute before suffering an injury that required him to miss the rest of the contest and potentially much longer. Expect his minutes to be spread out amongst Dragan Bender, Mychal Mulder, and Eric Paschall for the foreseeable future.

Stephen Curry (flu) is on track to suit up against the Nets on Thursday. (Source: Anthony Slater on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Curry will be returning after a two game absence of what were referred to as "flu-like symptoms". It looks like Curry has recovered so fantasy owners should plug Curry back in their lineups. He may still carry a minutes restriction under 30 minutes but it shouldn't impact his production. Jordan Poole, Ky Bowman, and Mychal Mulder all get downgraded with news of Curry's return.

Category: Injury Updates


Mychal Mulder contributed only three points (1-9 FG, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 131-107 blowout loss to the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: The ink is barely dry on Mulder's new multi-year contract and his 0-7 three-point performance isn't a ringing endorsement to his potential as a deep bench contributor for the Warriors. Likely an outlier, Mulder has otherwise been pretty good for the Dubs since joining the team a couple of weeks ago. Mulder can be ignored unless owners in the deepest of leagues are chasing three's in head to head formats.

Category: Game Recaps


Jordan Poole scored 17 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 FT) along with three assists, one rebound, one steal, and two three's in 26 minutes in a 131-107 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: Poole has played very well after the all-star break, averaging 13.4 points, 4.5 assists, 2.4 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointer's and shooting 48% from the field with 35% from three. Unfortunately for Poole, Steph Curry's return has put a damper in his production - but when Curry sits, Poole is far more aggressive. The backcourt is very crowded since the Warriors signed Mychal Mulder but should Curry miss anymore time, Poole will likely get minutes in the mid to high 20's. Keep an eye out for Curry's availability - otherwise, Poole can be left on waivers with the fantasy playoffs nearing or being underway.

Damion Lee couldn't find his stroke in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers and managed to score eight points (2-6 FG, 2-2 FT) along with five rebounds, three assists, one steal, and two three's across 31 minutes of action.

Fantasy Impact: Tonight was a let down for Lee who scored at least 23 points in his last two contests but he did salvage his night by contributing across other categories such as rebounding, assists, and three's. Keep Lee in your lineups since he'll continue to see a healthy dose of minutes over the final month of the season.

Category: Game Recaps


Eric Paschall produced 12 points (4-12 FG, 3-4 FT) along with seven assists, two rebounds, and one three-pointer across 32 minutes of action in Tuesday night's 131-107 loss to the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact: Paschall, usually known for his rebounding, has really taken on the facilitator role for the Warriors over the past five games. For the first time in his career, he's dished out at least five assists in five straight games (6.4 assists per game over that span). Draymond Green has been day-to-day with a lingering knee issue so fantasy owners should view Paschall as a valuable asset as long as Green remains out. Paschall's next game will be Thursday night against Brooklyn.

Category: Game Recaps


Dragan Bender played his best game as a Warrior on Tuesday night, contributing 23 points (8-12 FG, 5-5 FT), grabbing seven rebounds, dishing out three assists, and knocking down two three-pointer's in 25 minutes in a 131-107 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Bender, on his second 10-day contract, played great off the bench for the Warriors by shooting an efficient 67% from the field. Bender's scored in double figures for the second consecutive game but doesn't warrant a pickup in 10-12 team formats since he does not receive consistent minutes or have a high usage rate in the Warriors system.

Alen Smailagic was recalled from the Golden State Warriors G-League affliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, on Wednesday. (Source: Warriors PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Serbian power forward will rejoin the Warriors after appearing in 14 games this season. Smailagic is averaging 4.2 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 0.9 assists in only 9.9 minutes per game but can earn more additional minutes with Draymond Green (knee) and Kevon Looney (hip) both day-to-day with their respective injuries.

Ky Bowman left late in Thursday's contest against the Lakers with an apparent ankle injury. Before he sustained the injury, Bowman scored 11 points (5-9 FG) along with three rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block, and one three-pointer across 31 minutes in a blowout loss to Los Angeles.

Fantasy Impact: Bowman was fairing well prior to sustaining what appears to be a significant ankle sprain that could be a week-to-week injury. The timing for Steph Curry's return couldn't be better as the Warriors are getting extremely thin at the guard position. Bowman can be ignored in DFS while he is on the shelf with the ankle injury.

Omari Spellman was sent to the Wolves in a trade with the Warriors on Thursday. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Spellman carved out a solid bench role for the Warriors following the departure of Willie Cauley-Stein. Juan Hernangomez and Jarred Vanderbilt are the only power forwards listed on Minnesota’s roster so Spellman may have an opening towards more playing time. For now, keep him on waivers until the dust settles.

Jacob Evans was traded to the Wolves on Thursday as part of the deal that sent Andrew Wiggins to the Warriors. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Wolves acquired Evans along with teammates D'Angelo Russell and Omari Spellman. Evans joins a crowded Minnesota backcourt with no clear path to playing time – keep him on waivers for the foreseeable future.

D’Angelo Russell has been traded to Minnesota in a deal involving Andrew Wiggins, Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: The long-rumored deal has come to fruition as Russell will take his talents to Minnesota to provide much-needed stability at the point guard position. Expect a high-usage rate in an offense devoid of playmakers outside of Karl-Anthony Towns.

Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson were traded from the Warriors to the 76ers in exchange for three second-round picks Wednesday (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson and Burks were both late scratches for Wednesday's game against the Nets with the notion that both players would be dealt before Thursday's NBA deadline. He will most likely come off the bench for the 76ers, and his fantasy value will take a hit with his new team. Burks is averaging 16.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.8 triples across 48 games for the Warriors. The 28-year old should be owned in deep-league formats, but fantasy owners should wait-and-see how he performs with his new team before adding him in standard leagues.

Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks were traded from the Warriors to the 76ers in exchange for three second-round picks Wednesday. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Robinson and Burks were both late scratches for Wednesday's game against the Nets with the notion that both players would be dealt before Thursday's NBA deadline. The 26-year old forward will most likely come off the bench and backup starter Tobias Harris. He was having a career-year for the Warriors, averaging 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.4 triples across 48 games. With the move to Philadelphia, Robinson is more of a deep-league stash until his role with the 76ers is more solidified.

Willie Cauley-Stein was traded from the Warriors to the Mavericks in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick on Friday. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cauley-Stein will replace Dwight Powell in the Mavericks rotation, who was lost for the season due to a ruptured Achilles’ tendon. He is averaging 7.9 points, 6.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.1 blocks across 41 games this year. His fantasy value should remain the same, and he will likely be Dallas’ third option on offense behind Luka Doncic and Kristap Porzingis. Cauley-Stein should be owned in all standard leagues.
