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.

Damion Lee put up a forgettable performance on Tuesday as he was limited by the Clippers' defense to just eight points on 2-of-6 shooting with five rebounds, three dimes, two 3s and one steal.
Lee is coming off back to back games where he's scored 23 points or more, so can see how this night's line was big downer. Still, given the Warriors' injury situation, it's best to weather tonight's storm and ride him for the rest of the week, hoping for the best.

Damion Lee scored 24 points (10-of-17 from the floor) with six rebounds, three assists and three triples in 34 minutes on Saturday.
Lee scored 20 points for the second straight game and is worth holding in standard leagues. He will be impacted by Stephen Curry's return, but he still scored 23 points next to him on Thursday and should get enough usage to keep standard-league value moving forward.

Damion Lee scored 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists, a steal and five 3-pointers on Thursday.
Lee looked great again and with the way things are shaking out, he's worth holding onto. Stephen Curry can't eat up all of the usage, but there will surely be nights where Lee is an afterthought on offense, tonight wasn't one of them.

Damion Lee looked good in a win over the Suns on Saturday, recording 20 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five rebounds, two 3s, eight assistss and one steal in a team-high 37 minutes.
Lee has been cooking lately, with solid performances in at least several games. Unfortunately for Lee, Chef Curry (Stephen) will be taking over the kitchen in a few games for now. There aren't that many mouths to feed in Golden State, so there's a chance Lee is able to land with top-80 to top-100 value when Curry returns to action.

Damion Lee scored 15 points with six boards, three dimes and four triples on Thursday.
If you're in need of triples, Lee is your guy, but the scoring should dip with Stephen Curry (hand) returning on Sunday. That being said, Lee could still be in play for a triples streamer as Coach Kerr has taken a liking to him.

Damion Lee contributed across the board in Tuesday's loss to the Kings as he posted 14 points (4-of-9 FGs), six rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 30 minutes.
Lee has been a solid fantasy option in 12-team leagues for a while now, but a recent surge in steals has him sitting as a four-round player in 8-cat leagues and a third-round player in 9-cat leagues over the last two weeks. Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) returns in three games, so Lee's production will likely take a small hit.

Damion Lee's shooting came around on Sunday while facing the Pelicans, going 9-of-15 from the field for 22 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal.
Lee was strong over the course of his 35 minutes. He is an inconsistent performer so don't assume he is going to ride this to the finish line in your league, but enjoy the stats while he is delivering them. Ky Bowman was not too shabby either, going for 15 points, seven assists, six rebounds, three steals and one block over the course of 32 minutes. Bowman's role has been streaky, and he's more of a deep league streamer that could be the hot hand on any given night for the Warriors.

Damion Lee went 4-for-12 from the field and 4-for-4 at the line to finish Thursday's game with 13 points, one 3-pointer, four rebounds, three assists and one steal.
Lee has been one of the hotter pickups since D'Angelo Russell was sent to the Wolves. However, some buyer's remorse might be setting in as Lee's .413 shooting from the field can dip thanks to the variance that comes along with him being a streaky shooter, making more suiting for FG-punting builds.

Damion Lee kept up his hot streak on Monday with a career-high 26 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go with two rebounds, one assist and five triples.
Lee is on the upswing again which is good for his value as of now, but we've seen this before. There are a lot more pathways for him to earn standard league ownership now so ride him out if you want, but be wary of the cold streaks.
February 6, 2020, 1:49 pmAndrew WigginsSF, Minnesota Timberwolves
Andrew Wiggins has been traded to the Warriors in exchange for D'Angelo Russell, Jacob Evans and Omari Spellman.
The Wiggins era in Minnesota ends with a whimper, but this is as good a landing spot for Wiggins as he could've hoped for. Wiggins will get to play with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green while learning from one of the best head coaches in the league in Steve Kerr, who has already helped develop rehab projects like Marquese Chriss this season. He could, of course, recede into the former low-usage, Harrison Barnes-type role, but GM Bob Myers doesn't trade for players he doesn't plan to feature or at least play to their strengths. Wiggins should be able to dominate touches until Curry returns and Damion Lee is no longer the clear-cut winner of the Dubs' previous trade.

Damion Lee started on Monday and scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting to go with one rebound, six assists, a steal and five 3-pointers.
Lee had been pretty terrible before this game, so even though we're excited that he finally woke up, we're not rushing to grab him on the waiver wire. There's a lot of ground for Lee to make up before we trust him again, but if the Warriors move Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III it could give him a bigger runway to work with, that's of course if they don't get any wings in return in a potential deal.

Damion Lee scored 11 points on 4-of-6 shooting to go with seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a triple on Thursday.
Lee remains quiet in fantasy news, but Alec Burks (18 points on 5-of-10 shooting with four rebounds, one steal and three triples) has really stepped up. Burks is in plenty of trade rumors though and Lee looks like a piece the Warriors will keep, at least for this season. Owners should hang onto Burks and ride out his value while Lee can be left on wires until he heats up again.

Damion Lee scored four points on 1-of-7 shooting to go with nine boards, four assists and a steal on Monday.
Lee fell flat in 39 minutes after posting a strong 21-point line before and even though he was bad tonight, he's worth holding onto in standard leagues. On a team full of question marks, Lee has proven himself to be one of the most consistent players on the Warriors.

Damion Lee scored 21 points on 7-of-16 shooting to go with four rebounds, six assists, a steal, a block and three triples on Thursday.
Lee started and logged a team-high 37 minutes on Thursday and should be rostered in all standard leagues. The Warriors like what they see from him and he's proving himself on the court in both reality and fantasy.
