Eric Paschall is doubtful to play against the Jazz on Friday as he deals with a sore left hip.
Paschall was questionable heading into Wednesday's game against the Knicks, a game in which he ended up playing. However, he played the fewest minutes (17) of the season on Wednesday and signs point to this hip injury. If Paschall misses the game, Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks will be given more opportunity.

Alec Burks logged 33 minutes off the bench on Wednesday night, turning them into 18 points, five boards, two dimes and two assists.
Burks was only behind D'Angelo Russell in points for the Warriors tonight. He has upside and can have well-rounded games, but it isn't a given. If you have him, you can hold him, but probably isn't worth running to go pick up.

Alec Burks came off the bench again on Friday but stayed productive with 14 points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and a 3-pointer in 30 minutes.
Burks played more than D'Angelo Russell, and we'd expect that to flip shortly. One of the few reliable Warriors these days, Burks is posting top-110 value and you can feel free to hold him until the wheels fall off. He's prone to duds and will trail off as Russell gets back to full strength, but it's entirely possible that he holds legitimate value all year in this wasteland of a team.

Alec Burks returned to the bench with D'Angelo Russell returning to action in Wednesday's loss to the Hornets, but still managed to see 30 minutes, finishing his night with 15 points (6-of-7 shooting), four rebounds, four assists, two steals and two 3-pointers.
It wound up being one of Burks' stronger games of the season, and he seems entrenched into a large role with this team regardless of whether or not he starts or sits. He is still a shaky fantasy asset because of his poor shooting, but perhaps having some of the better Warriors around will take some pressure off of him and allow those shooting numbers to come up.

D'Angelo Russell is expected to return from his right thumb sprain on Wednesday.
Russell hasn't played since November 16 but it seems like he will be back against the Hornets. He should have every opportunity to produce on such a depleted roster. Russell has averaged 24.3 points and 6.7 assists so far. Expect diminished numbers for Alec Burks with Russell back.

Alec Burks dropped 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting with three steals in a loss to the Magic on Sunday.
Burks has been the main scoring guard in D'Angelo Russell's absence, so it is no surprise to see him have another 15-point scoring game. He added five rebounds and three assists to the box score. He is a late-round value and is worth owning in standard formats.

Alec Burks scored 23 points on 9-of-19 shooting (including three treys) with 10 rebounds and seven assists in Wednesday's win over the Bulls.
Burks has never had a great standard league stat set but he has a great situation and is putting up solid late round value on the season. He's well worth a look if you need a low-end producer right now.

Alec Burks chipped in 20 points, six rebounds, four steals, three assists and two triples in Friday's 109-113 loss to the Jazz.
Burks also went a perfect 4-for-4 from the charity stripe as he's been inconsistent per usual but is seeing enough usage to warrant holding in standard leagues.

Alec Burks scored 11 inefficient points on Wednesday, going 3-of-11 from the floor while adding four rebounds, four assists, a steal and a triple in 29 minutes.
Burks has always been an inconsistent fantasy player, and the bigger role he’s seeing now hasn’t changed that too much. Nobody on the Warriors could do a thing tonight so he gets a pass, but he’s a tough guy to rely on night in and night out.
November 19, 2019, 11:54 pmAlec BurksSG, Golden State Warriors
Alec Burks had a game-high and season-high 29 points (9-for-15 FGs, 9-for-9 FTs) and eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, one block and two triples in 36 minutes as he led the Warriors to a 114-95 win over the Grizzlies on Tuesday.
Burks has been inconsistent, but he's safe to start for at least two weeks while D'Angelo Russell (right thumb sprain) is out. Another safe, though lower-end Warrior, Glenn Robinson III had 20 points and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes tonight.
November 16, 2019, 2:39 pmD'Angelo RussellPG, Golden State Warriors
D'Angelo Russell will be re-evaluated in two weeks after an MRI confirmed his right thumb sprain.
This is a tough blow for Russell as he was playing out of his mind over the last five games, putting up late first-round value with 29.6 points and 7.0 assists on 51.0 percent shooting. Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole and Alec Burks will continue getting all of the backcourt minutes with Burks being the only must-add of the group for the near-term. Jacob Evans should return to the lineup before Russell and jump right into the rotation as well.

D'Angelo Russell (sprained right thumb) will undergo an MRI on Saturday after X-rays came back negative.
Russell left in the third quarter did not return in Friday's game . He has been blistering hot in the five games since returning from his ankle injury with 29.6 points, 7.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 3.4 triples while shooting 51.0 percent from the field. A time table has not yet been released while Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole and Alec Burks should get all the minutes they can handle at the two guard positions until Russell and Jacob Evans return.

Alec Burks woke up with 20 points (4-of-11 FGs, 11-of-12 FTs) with three rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer and one steal.
Old man Burks still has got it. Given that the Warriors are ravaged by injuries, lines like this might end up being more commonplace in the near future, making Burks a must-add in all formats.

Damion Lee (fractured right hand) is out at least the next two weeks after getting an MRI on Tuesday.
The Warriors continue to take a beating up and down their roster. Alec Burks and Jordan Poole will see extra minutes while Lee is out.

Getting the start in Saturday's 108-114 to the Thunder, Alec Burks scored 23 points on 9-of-17 shooting, adding five rebounds, four assists, and a steal and a block.
With teammate Eric Paschall on the bench Burks got the nod after consecutive high-scoring games off the bench. He made the most of the opportunity and shined off the ball alongside teammate D'Angelo Russell. Fantasy owners should monitor the minutes distribution as Burks can provide points and 3s given 20-plus minutes.
