Fantasy Impact: Curry had an MVP-caliber season, averaging 32 points per game, which included going 42 percent from three-point range and averaging a ridiculous 5.3 triples per game. The perennial All-Star had been deciding whether to join the Team USA roster at the 2021 Summer Olympics in Tokyo before ultimately bowing out.

Fantasy Impact: This is a wholly unsurprising decision on Oubre's part, especially when considering the certain crowdedness in the Warrior's backcourt this upcoming season. Oubre averaged 15.4 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.3 assists on 43.9% shooting in 2020-2021 for the Dubs.

Fantasy Impact: Wiggins had what many will say is the best season of his career last season, averaging 18.6 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game while shooting 47.7% from the field including 38% from deep. Wiggins' eagerness to continue improving bodes well for his fantasy value next season.

Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers sounded "skeptical" that Klay Thompson could return by the opening game next season. (Source: Anthony Slater on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: "I don't know if that will be realistic or not." He mentioned that it won't even be a full calendar year since his Achilles tear. The plan is to ease him into action.

Fantasy Impact: Lee has been in the league's health and safety protocols for the team's last 14 games but will be active during Friday's play-in game against the Memphis Grizzlies, per Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr. However, Lee is unlikely to play Friday due to a lack of conditioning after spending over a month in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols. Jordan Poole should continue to see minutes relieving Andrew Wiggins, making for a decent value play in DFS contests.

Draymond Green totaled two points (0-5 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, eight assists, three steals, and three blocks in the Warriors' 103-100 loss to the Lakers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Green “stuffed” the stat-sheet in the Warriors’ loss to the Lakers, successfully contributing impactful value across every performance category. Like much of the year, he didn’t do much by way of scoring; however, he used his versatility to effectively facilitate on offense and powerfully defend on defense. Even though he did what he needed to do to position the team for the win, his lack of ball protection heavily contributed to a total of 20.0 turnovers for the Warriors leading to their untimely defeat. He will look to “rebound” from this effort and “assist” the team in a big way against the Grizzlies, a team he got the better of recently. Green is a must-consider fantasy play with must-start upside and should be a popular play in their upcoming bout.

Mychal Mulder corralled 28 points (10-17 FG, 7-13 3PT, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block as Golden State edged past the Pelicans on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Mulder was dynamite for the Warriors on Friday as he poured in 28 points and drained seven three-pointers. Mulder led the team in minutes with just over 34. He notched his highest fantasy point total of the last ten games with 39.5 on Friday (DraftKings).

Jordan Poole rounded up 38 points (12-22 FG, 4-9 3PT, 10-11 FT), six assists, four rebounds and one block across 33 minutes on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Poole was the driving force for Golden State on Friday as they squeaked by New Orleans. Poole led his team with 38 points and shot 54.5 percent from the field. Additionally, he connected on four triples and earned 11 trips to the line. He recorded 55 fantasy points on the night (DraftKings) which marked his highest output over the past ten games.

Warriors' SF Kent Bazemore dropped 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-7 3PT, 3-3 FT) to go along with four rebounds, two assists, and one block in a Warriors' 119-116 win over Utah.

Fantasy Impact: Bazemore had his highest scoring game for the month of May, dropping 19 points in an important game for the Dubs. Bazemore is averaging 7.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game on the year, but is averaging 9.6 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 1.9 assists over his last 10 games. Bazemore is getting hot at the right time, and his productivity may shift him into fantasy consideration in deeper leagues.

Fantasy Impact: Toscano-Anderson went all out, saving a ball from going out of bounds which led to him diving head first over the scorers table. It looked like a monitor may have landed on him as he hit the ground. He was down for a while before being helped back to the locker room. He has a laceration on the top of his head, and is being tested for a possible concussion.

Golden State Warriors rookie James Wiseman has suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Warriors fear Wiseman will miss the rest of this season. Brutal. Golden State is just barely in the race for the play-in game hunt for the playoffs as they currently sit in 10th place in the Western conference. Juan Toscano-Anderson should be the biggest beneficiary as he started the second half in Saturday's win over Houston.

Fantasy Impact: This comes as no surprise after Paschall left Friday's game early against Toronto. Draymond Green (finger) was also ruled questionable for this game. James Wiseman and Kevon Looney could see more playing time with Paschall sidelined.

Former Golden State Warriors PF/C Marquese Chriss has been traded to the San Antonio Spurs with cash, saving Golden State a luxury tax for trading an injured player, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Chriss fractured his right ankle in practice three months ago after playing in just two games for the Warriors this season. His trade to San Antonio was conducted with cash assets, which allows the Warriors to avoid the league luxury tax when trading an injured player. The Spurs add depth for the 2021-22 season, as Chriss averaged 9.3 points and 6.2 rebounds across 59 games for the Warriors in 2019.

Fantasy Impact: Though Looney's getting the nod to enter the starting five, he's only topped 20 minutes played once in his last ten court appearances. With teammate James Wiseman also healthy, we could see the Warriors deploy an evenly distributed committee approach to their center position this evening.
