• Zach Norvell
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Zach Norvell scored 22 points on 6-of-13 shooting with three triples, four rebounds, an assist and a steal in Monday's game against the Warriors.

    Norvell looked great tonight, shooting without hesitation and scoring efficiently. It's still difficult to envision him playing consistent and meaningful minutes, but performances like tonight can't hurt.

  • Juan Toscano-Anderson
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Juan Toscano-Anderson made his NBA debut this season for the Warriors after much of their depth was traded to the T-Wolves prior to the deadline in February.

    Toscano-Anderson unfortunately sprained his ankle during the Warriors' final game of the season on March 10, but prior to that he had played significant minutes for the team in February and March. He spent most of the season in the G League with Santa Cruz. There's no telling whether or not he will be on the Warriors in 2020-21, but he has no fantasy appeal moving forward, wherever that may be.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green battled through an injury-plagued season in 2019-20, managing 43 games and finishing with per-game averages of 8.0 PTS, 6.2 REB, 6.2 AST, 1.4 STL and 0.8 BLK in 28.4 MPG.

    Green's heart, which everyone knows is a key part of his game, simply wasn't in it this year in the wake of yearlong injuries to Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and the departure of superstar Kevin Durant to the Nets. He put up Draymond-like numbers when he was on the floor, but head coach Steve Kerr opted to sit him any chance he got as Green dealt with a multitude of injuries of his own. On the fantasy side, Green finished 78th in 8-cat and should regain most of his old form when the Warriors' depleted roster is replenished for 2020-21. Look for him to get back to 100 percent as his extended layoff continues.

  • Dragan Bender
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Dragan Bender played 16 games for the Warriors in 2019-20 prior to the league wide shutdown and performed quite well (averaging 9.0 points, 5.9 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.2 threes in his nine most recent outings) in the absence of both Draymond Green and Kevon Looney.

    This solid play included a 23-point, seven rebound effort in what turned out to be the Warriors' final game of the season on March 10, a 131-107 drubbing at the hands of the Clippers. Blowout losses like that were a common sight for the Warriors this year, as they closed out the season with the worst record in the NBA. Bender was in the middle of a second 10-day deal with the Warriors when the COVID-19 pandemic paused the sports world, so it remains to be seen if he is in their plans for 2020-21. Conventional wisdom would lead one to believe it is unlikely the Warriors bring back Bender, but crazier things have happened and it is impossible to forecast the Warriors' 2020-21 roster at this juncture.

  • Jordan Poole
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Rookie guard Jordan Poole played 57 games for the Warriors this season, averaging 8.8 PTS, 2.1 REB, 2.4 AST and 1.3 threes in 22.3 minutes per contest.

    This is more NBA action than the Warriors would have liked Poole to get during his rookie year and they probably hoped he'd be able to get more run in the G League with the Santa Cruz Warriors. That's still a possibility, as the return of Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry and the extensions of fellow guards Damion Lee and Mychal Mulder make it likely that Poole will see time with Santa Cruz in 2020-21. Poole was a late first-round pick of the Warriors out of Michigan just last summer.

  • Alen Smailagic
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    19-year-old Serbian rookie Alen Smailagic (6-foot-10, 215 pounds) played 14 games during his rookie season, averaging 4.2 points and 1.9 boards in 9.9 minutes per game.

    The production from the young Serbian this season (383rd in 9-cat) wasn't important to the Warriors for development reasons and he spent the majority of the season in the G League with the Santa Cruz Warriors anyway. The Warriors will definitely play it slow with Smailagic, but his name is one to know moving forward.

  • Mychal Mulder
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    One of many to get a turn on the Warriors' roster carousel this season, Mychal Mulder was a silver lining, earning a three-year contract after impressing in two consecutive 10-day pacts.

    Mulder, who averaged 11.0 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in just seven contests this year, and fellow guard Damion Lee both earned three-year contracts after impressive showings for the Warriors and head coach Steve Kerr. On a per-game basis, Mulder ranked 288th in 8-cat and 275th in 9-cat. The contract is indicative of the Warriors' plans with the third-year Canadian out of Kentucky, and he should share bench opportunities with Lee for them next season behind Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Eric Paschall saw significant playing time this season, his rookie campaign, due to a ravaged Warriors roster and played well (14.0 PTS, 4.6 REB, 2.1 AST and 0.6 3PT).

    Paschall played his college ball at Villanova under the tutelage of coach Jay Wright, so his pedigree is top notch. He proved quite a bit for the Warriors in his first NBA season, and even earned an unexpected bid to the Rising Stars game in February. Paschall ranked 189th in 8-cat and 205th in 9-cat but he was nowhere near a lock to make the team out of camp. He should maintain a bench role for the Warriors in 2020-21, even when their depleted roster makes it back to full strength. It's too early to tell what his fantasy outlook might be for next season.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee was one of the lone bright spots in a lost season for the Warriors after starting on a two-way contract, finishing the year ranked 155th in 9-cat and 122nd in 8-cat.

    After exhausting the 45-day NBA roster limit for his two-way deal, the Warriors brought Lee back on a three-year NBA contract after he played extremely well during his extended showcase. Obviously, he factors in to the Warriors' plans moving forward, even if it's just depth at the guard position behind bonafide stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, who are both coming off of long-term injuries. Lee seems poised to play an important role in 2020-21 and could very well be a viable fantasy contributor.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Golden State Warriors

    Andrew Wiggins, who was dealt from the T-Wolves to the Warriors in February, finds himself in a seemingly favorable spot moving forward, as far as his career is concerned.

    Wiggins actually fared worse, at least from a fantasy perspective, during his month with the Warriors. Overall, he finished the year ranked 76th in 8-cat and 93rd in 9-cat but was outside the top-120 over his final nine games. The Warriors, who plan on starting Wiggins at small forward next year, should be at full strength next season with the return of stars Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. In addition, the team will presumably land a high lottery pick in the upcoming draft due to their lackluster record this season. If Wiggins is able to build some rapport with Curry, Thompson and Draymond Green during the rather short offseason, he will in for another high-floor, top-100 fantasy season in 2020-21. Fantasy owners should be accustomed to the ebb and flow that come with Wiggins' fantasy seasons, but throwing him into the mix with the rest of the Warriors is nonetheless intriguing.

  • Alex Len
    C, Sacramento Kings

    Alex Len, Buddy Hield and Jabari Parker have yet to join the rest of their Kings teammates in Orlando clear (test negative for) the coronavirus protocol for the NBA's 'bubble' at Disney World.

    This update was courtesy of head coach Luke Walton, via Kings Insider James Ham, after it was reported that the trio tested positive on June 24. Len apparently never felt symptoms. Parker, for his part, broke his quarantine when he was seen playing tennis in his native Chicago (where he is in isolation) on video. There's a chance Len and Hield will be able to report to Orlando before Parker because of this, but all three must clear protocol before they can make the trip to the bubble.
