Golden State Warriors

Western Pacific

Stephen Curry dropped a game-high 35 points (14-23 FG, 5-11 3PT, 2-2 FT) along with 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and seven turnovers across 37 minutes in the Warriors 114-104 loss to the Nuggets.

Fantasy Impact: Over his past two games, Curry scored a total of 31 points. He came out aggressive at the onset Thursday, lighting up the scoreboard and bombing away to hit five threes. With Friday's game against the Suns postponed, Curry will get three days rest before going up against the defending champs, the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday.

Damion Lee scored 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3PT) with three rebounds and one steal across 27 minutes of action in Tuesday's 104-95 loss to the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Lee's hit at least two triples in five of his last six games and is earning close to 20 minutes per contest. He's been one of the best shooters for the Warriors this season with a 47/46/89 shooting split through 11 games. With all of the injuries and postponements, Lee is worthy of a look in 12-team formats.

James Wiseman scored eight points (4-11 FG, 0-2 FT) along with nine rebounds, and two blocks across 26 minutes in the Warriors' 105-94 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Wiseman got into foul trouble but was still productive in just under 30 minutes of play. The rookie hadn't cracked 20 minutes in his past five games, so Eric Paschall's absence likely boosted his playing time. He's averaging 10.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 0.3 assists, 0.4 steals, and 1.5 blocks across 10 games this season. He'll continue to be a good source of rebounds and blocks for fantasy managers at a thin center position.

Andrew Wiggins led the Warriors in scoring on Tuesday, dropping 22 points (7-17 FG, 4-9 3PT, 4-7 FT) with seven rebounds, three assists, and five blocks across 35 minutes in the Warriors 105-94 loss to the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Wiggins was superb defensively on Tuesday, setting a new career-high with five blocks. He's being more aggressive on offense and seems to be turning the corner in terms of his fantasy expectations this season. He's bumped up his seasonal averages to 17.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.8 blocks per game through 10 games this season. He'll face the Nuggets on Thursday.

Draymond Green scored seven points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3PT, 2-2 FT) and handed out 10 assists along with six rebounds, one steal, and three turnovers across 32 minutes in the Warriors 104-95 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Green is making a positive impact on the Warriors outside of the box score, but his 10 assists were a nice boost to his production as of late. Green is handling the ball more and has seen his minutes creep into the '30s in two of his past three games. Fantasy managers shouldn't expect much in the scoring department as he's shooting 30% from the field and 20% from three in seven games this season.

Kelly Oubre Jr. produced 17 points (6-11 FG, 3-7 3PT, 2-2 FT) and grabbed five rebounds with two assists, one steal, and one block across 29 minutes in the Warriors 104-95 loss to the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact: Oubre found his shot on Tuesday, putting up his highest point total in four games. He's been inconsistent to start the season, but fantasy managers should remain patient for games like this. Oubre is a good defender, and it's only a matter of time before his offensive game becomes more reliable on a nightly basis. He'll face the Nuggets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: It’s uncertain how long Paschall could be out, but he’ll at least miss Tuesday night’s game. He’s scored over 10 points in each of his last eight games, so while there may not be much impact on the rest of the team from a fantasy perspective, those that picked up Paschall recently are being dealt a small blow with this news.


Kevon Looney scored 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in only 12 minutes during the Warriors win over the Kings on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Looney was great on a per-minute basis but the return of Draymond Green impacted his playing time. He likely won't see enough playing time to produce fantasy friendly stat lines going forward. He'll look to continue coming off the bench for Wednesday's game against the Clippers.

Warriors' center Marquese Chriss has been diagnosed with a broken right leg and will miss the remainder of the season. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Whoa. This is a huge blow to the Warriors' second unit as Chriss had seemingly found a home in Golden State after bouncing around the league for the first couple years of his career. Kevon Looney and James Wiseman will now dominate the minutes at center vacated by Chriss but it also wouldn't be surprising to see them sign another big man to make up for the loss. Chriss only averaged 13 minutes of playing time over the team's first two games of the season.

Free agent guard Chasson Randle has reached an agreement with the Oklahoma City Thunder, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports. (Source: Chris Haynes on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Although the terms of the agreement are not yet known, the 27-year-old guard only appeared in three games for the Warriors' in 2019-20. He will now join an OKC team that is clearly rebuilding so maybe that will earn him a few extra minutes on the court. Despite this, odds are he won't be a fantasy relevant option at any point during the season.

Zach Norvell Jr. has agreed to a one-year deal with the Chicago Bulls, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Norvell played in just five games between the Lakers and Warriors last season, averaging 2.0 points, 1.2 rebounds, and 0.6 assists while playing 8.2 minutes per contest. He's unlikely to make much of a real life or fantasy impact in Chicago as he's just there to shore up backcourt depth.

Warriors' star SG Klay Thompson (Achilles) underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair the Achilles tendon he tore a week ago. He is expected to make a full recovery, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The perennial All-Star shooting guard missed the 2019-20 season with a torn ACL and was preparing for a big return until tearing his Achilles in an open practice run last week. This unfortunate setback will keep Thompson out of the entire 2020-21 season and will instead feature 2014-15 Rookie of the Year shooting guard Andrew Wiggins with super-star point guard Steph Curry in the Warriors' backcourt.

Juan Toscano-Anderson (ankle) is in a walking boot and is headed for an MRI after spraining his ankle against the Clippers. (Source: Kerith Burke on Twitter)

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.

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.

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.

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.
