    David West announced his retirement on Thursday morning.

    West calls it a career after 15 productive seasons with the New Orleans Hornets, Pacers, Spurs and Warriors. Though he was only a situational player for Golden State he was able to capture two championships that had long eluded him and was very open about sacrificing money in order to become a champion after leaving the Pacers. West ranks 166th on the league's all-time scoring list, fittingly right behind Manu Ginobili, who retired earlier in the week.

    During exit interviews, David West told Steve Kerr and Bob Myers that he will take some time to decide about his future in the league.

    West caught everyone by surprise after the title clincher game when he said that the team went through issues behind the scenes that would be surprising if revealed. The Warriors will be looking to construct a more balanced roster for next season and West and Zaza Pachulia could be the odd men out regardless.

    David West quietly delivered a well-rounded line in Tuesday's victory, collecting four points, seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 18 minutes.

    West dealt with an ankle injury in this series but looked fine tonight and was fairly active in the box score. His place on the floor against the Pelicans (at least for this sort of workload) has yet to be determined but there are certain personnel groupings that he makes plenty of sense for. It'll all depend on who dictates the terms of engagement.

  • JaVale McGee

    JaVale McGee remains questionable for Game 3 on Thursday with a left quad contusion.

    McGee has been productive for the Warriors in the playoffs as the starting center and coach Steve Kerr will be left with a decision if McGee cannot go. Zaza Pachulia and Kevon Looney would be the top two choices to start with David West remaining in a bench role.

    David West played just 14 minutes before leaving Game 2 with an ankle injury, posting 10 points, four rebounds, two assists and a block.

    West was questionable to return and looked ready but the Warriors just didn't need him. Aside from Kevon Looney (two points, three rebounds, two assists and a block in 21 mintues) he's been the main big off the bench for Golden State so far. He'll be listed as questionable before Game 3 but we'd expect to see him out there.

    David West did not score in his 13 minutes of action in Tuesday's finale against the Jazz, but did grab four rebounds to go with one steal and two blocks.

    West had another great low-minute season with top 160-180 value (9/8 cat) when on the floor in his 13.7 mpg, bringing back 6.8 points with 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 0.6 steals and 1.0 blocks with great percentages to boot. He saw action in 73 games and was a low-end asset in 14-16 team leagues.

    David West finished with eight points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in the Warriors' Tuesday night win over the Thunder.

    West now has at least eight in five of his last six but tonight was special as he couldn't seem to miss, knocking down all four of his attempts. West isn't a viable option in fantasy unless you're in a deep league although his productivity has made up for a lack of minutes as of late.

  • Omri Casspi
    SF/PF, Golden State Warriors

    An MRI has revealed a sprained right ankle for Omri Casspi, who will be sidelined for about a week.

    Casspi was a hot pickup after the Kevin Durant news but can now be dropped, unless you’re willing to waste a roster spot in a playoff week. The Dubs are very shorthanded at small forward now, and Andre Iguodala looks like he’ll be handling as much work as possible until they get some reinforcements back. It also puts a dent into the rotation at power forward, as the Warriors will need to rely on more traditional types like David West and Kevon Looney. They’ll be hurting for floor spacing in the second unit but don’t have much say in the matter. Iguodala remains the best add of the bunch, with Looney the better deep league play for defensive stats and West the better scoring option.

  • Omri Casspi
    SF, Golden State Warriors

    Omri Casspi (ankle) will not play on Saturday night, as he isn’t traveling with the team to Phoenix.

    Casspi sustained a first-half ankle injury on Friday and didn’t return. The Warriors are heading out on a road trip, so Casspi could also be looking at a multi-game absence. It means more breathing room for Andre Iguodala at small forward, with potential increases for power forward types like David West and Kevon Looney in certain lineups. The Dubs will miss his floor-spacing abilities but don’t have anywhere to turn right now.

    David West (cyst, right arm) will be available for Friday’s game against the Kings.

    It won’t matter much for fantasy purposes as Draymond Green has also been confirmed ready to go tonight, as was initially reported yesterday. The veteran gives Golden State some productive bench minutes whenever he’s out there but it doesn’t yield fantasy value outside of deeper formats.

  • Jordan Bell
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Jordan Bell, Quinn Cook and David West are all likely to play against the Kings on Friday.

    It seems like everyone and their mother is on the injury report for the Warriors right now. Cook has actually seen the most minutes recently out of this trio, getting some extra run because of the absence of both Steph Curry AND Klay Thompson. Bell and West, even if they play, will be limited to around 20 minutes at most. They could be interesting, but interesting isn’t enough right now. They should only be deployed if it’s a desperation scenario.

    David West is probable for Friday’s game against the Kings with a cyst under his arm.

    West had missed five straight games with a cyst under his arm but it looks like he will make his return against the Kings on Friday. With Draymond Green also due back West can be left on the waiver wire.

    David West has been ruled out of Sunday’s game with a right arm cyst.

    West also missed Friday’s game with the injury, allowing Kevon Looney to pick up 20 minutes off the bench. He’ll join Golden State’s other inactives Stephen Curry, Jordan Bell and Patrick McCaw. There aren’t any surprises in that group and fantasy owners in most leagues don’t need to bother panning for gold on the Warriors bench.

    David West (right arm cyst) will not play in Friday’s matchup against the Blazers.

    Jordan Bell (ankle) is also out so JaVale McGee is an add with some risk and some upside for owners who want to stream. The great Pierre put up 14 points, seven boards and four blocks on Thursday, and Warriors play two more times this week on Friday and Sunday.

    David West will miss Thursday’s contest against the Spurs.

    As expected, West will miss this game. It isn’t a huge fantasy development, but West has been a borderline top-100 player over the last month even in very limited action because of his high percentages and lack of turnovers. He should be back in action soon.
