Golden State Warriors

Western Pacific

Jordan Poole totaled 28 points (9-15 FG, 6-12 3PT, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, three assists, one block, and two steals in the Warriors’ 104-96 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Poole continued to produce in the Warriors’ loss to the Suns, putting up a fully “stuffed” stat-line that included 28.0 points, 1.0 blocks, and 2.0 steals. He has been a tremendous value to the team and could see his role in the starting rotation remain should he continue to demonstrate the different facets of his game. His consistent contribution outside of scoring allows for more possibilities within the team script and scheme and could open up a new world of possibilities once Klay Thompson returns. Hold on to Poole tight as his day in the “sun” could continue longer than just a “day.”

Andrew Wiggins totaled ten points (4-12 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in the Warriors’ 104-96 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Wiggins' scoring drought continued in the Warriors’ loss to the Suns, making it the second consecutive game where he has failed to score more than 15.0 points. Unlike Stephen Curry, who has a whole book of work that shows that his low nights are more of an exception than the rule, Wiggins' lows could indicate a serious trend worth monitoring than isolated occurrence. It may not be wise to invest at this point until he can get back to his productive ways; however, he could be an attractive play should his price fall enough for us to see his upside once again.

Stephen Curry totaled 12 points (4-21 FG, 3-14 3PT, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one block, and one steal in the Warriors’ 104-96 loss to the Suns on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Curry scored 12.0 points in the Warriors' loss to the Suns after posting two consecutive games with more than 30.0 points. Hey, it happens; keep it moving and look forward to experiencing the rewards of his brilliant 2021-2022 campaign.

Andre Iguodala (knee) is out for the Warriors Tuesday matchup and has already been confirmed as unlikely to play Friday by head coach Steve Kerr.

Fantasy Impact: Iguodala will miss his seventh straight game tonight and if he is unable to go Friday that will be eight in a row that he will miss. This is because of right knee swelling that he has been dealing with.

Damion Lee has been assigned to the G-League so that he can scrimmage with allay Thompson so that Lee is available for Friday’s tilt. (Source: Anthony Slater on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Lee has been out lately due to the birth of his son and so he will need to get back in game shape before taking the floor, thus he will be assigned to the G-League to be ready for the Warrior’s Friday night tilt.

Warriors C James Wiseman has been assigned to the team's G League affiliate in Santa Cruz as of Monday, although he is still not cleared for 5-on-5 work. (Source: Anthony Slater on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Wiseman will likely begin with individual drills down in Santa Cruz before slowly building up his practice reps and conditioning before ultimately returning to Golden State. The timeline is unclear on when Wiseman will actually be back with the NBA team, but a return by the end of December or early January seems probable based on his injury's history with other players around the league. He should certainly be picked up in fantasy due to the upside he presents as a center who can rack up rebounds and blocks with ease.

Warriors G/F Klay Thompson was assigned to the team's G League affiliate in Santa Cruz on Monday, per The Athletic's Shams Charania. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Thompson will likely play a few games there to get his conditioning back up to game speed before eventually returning to the NBA ball club in Golden State. If he isn't already, Thompson should be rostered everywhere in fantasy due to the immense upside he provides as an elite fantasy producer.

Draymond Green totaled 12 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3PT, 2-3 FT), eight rebounds, twelve assists, three blocks, and two steals in the Warriors’ 118-103 win over the Trailblazers on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Green double-doubled in the Warriors’ win over the Trailblazers, putting together a fully "stuffed" stat-line in the process. This is the kind of production we know and love from the team's fearless leader, and if he continues to play up to his potential, there is no problem in doing so. His ability to compound stats has become as commonplace just as his fellow teammate Stephen Curry's ability to produce incredible scoring and shooting performances. As such is the case, he should be considered for your lineups any time the Warriors are on the slate.

Otto Porter Jr. (rest) can be added to the list of Warriors that will be rested for their game against the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. (Source: Anthony Slater on twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Porter saw 20 minutes in the Warriors game Thursday night and that will likely be spread elsewhere as he will be rested with the Warriors sitting comfortably atop the league with a 13-2 record. This may be the opportunity for the Warriors to take a closer look at some of the players drafted this year. Porter is only out on rest and will return to his strong bench role in the Warriors next game against the Raptors on Sunday.

Jonathan Kuminga will miss the remainder of training camp due to suffering a strained patella tendon. (Source: Rusty Simmons on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Kuminga was selected seventh overall in July’s NBA Draft by the Warriors. In his one year as a member of the G League Ignite, he averaged 15.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game and demonstrated his ability to be an explosive offensive weapon. It could be interesting to see how the Warriors look to factor him into the rotation; however, given the depth and experience on this Warriors team, it may be some time before we see any signs of relevant upside in his contribution to the team.

Golden State Warriors C Kevon Looney is reportedly exercising the $5.1 million option in his contract to return with the team for the 2021-22 season, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Looney averaged 5.3 rebounds and 4.1 points across 19 minutes per game this season, maintaining much better health and appearing in 61 games compared to an injury-riddled 2019 season. Draymond Green and Kelly Oubre Jr. often earned the most minutes in the Warriors' small-ball front-court this past season but Looney's return ensures a solid 6'9 presence in the paint for when All-Star Klay Thompson returns from injury.

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.

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).

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.

Eric Paschall was ruled out with left hip soreness ahead of the Warriors game Sunday against Atlanta. (Source: Anthony Slater on Twitter)

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.
