Draymond Green was the main facilitator on offense for the Warriors in Friday's 112-94 win over the Clips, dropping seven points, eight rebounds, nine dimes, two steals and a block in 29 minutes.
Green missed all four of his attempts from long-range which a minor blemish to his solid performance in this game. He's not the multi-cat stud he was two seasons ago but is delivering enough across multiple categories to bring mid-round value to the table.
January 19, 2019, 1:44 amStephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors
Stephen Curry led the Warriors to victory on Friday over the Clippers with 28 points and a filled up box score.
Curry hit 10-of-19 shots from the field and was a perfect 5-of-5 from the line and added five rebounds, four dimes, three triples, a steal and a block on the night. It's another day at the office (kitchen) for Chef Curry, who stayed hot despite a noticeable drop from his 41-point outburst on Wednesday.
January 19, 2019, 1:41 amKevin Durant - F - Golden State Warriors
Kevin Durant delivered a solid performance in Friday's win over the Clippers, registering 24 points (8-of-13 shooting) with seven rebounds, five assists, two treys, two steals and two blocks.
This game marked him passing Clyde Drexler to be 31st on the NBA all-time scoring list. He's a top-5 player on the season thanks in part to stuffed lines like this one. Whether he remains a Warrior after this season, his 2018-19 campaign will be one for the fantasy books.
January 19, 2019, 1:36 amDeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors
DeMarcus Cousins did a lot in his Friday debut for the Warriors, posting 14 points on 5-of-11 shooting, six rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers, one steal and one block, before fouling out in 15 minutes on the floor.
Coach Steve Kerr gave him a relatively long leash to play through his early foul trouble, He clearly showed some rust but was healthy enough to deliver a full line given his limited minutes. He's worth a stash now that he's playing and playing reasonably well.

DeMarcus Cousins (torn Achilles tendon) will start on Friday vs. the Clippers.
Coach Steve Kerr said that Cousins doesn’t have an official minutes limit but that he plans on playing Boogie in “short bursts.” It’s anyone’s guess how many minutes that’ll add up to but we’re excited to see how he looks in the Warriors’ starting lineup.

Per coach Steve Kerr, DeMarcus Cousins won't have a formal minutes restriction in his return on Friday night, but he will be closely watched in case of any setbacks.
Kerr is expecting Cousins to be used in short bursts while he works his way back. The Warriors obviously don't NEED Cousins given their roster and where they're sitting, so it could be a slow transition into full-strength Boogie.

Kevin Durant dropped a monster line of 30 points and 15 rebounds on 10-of-24 shooting as the Warriors beat the Pelicans on Wednesday.
He also added four assists, five 3-pointers and three defensive stats to the box score. This season has been the best statistical season for him and Steph Curry as a duo and they are seemingly unstoppable. Kevon Looney played well in the starting lineup with seven points, 12 rebounds and four defensive stats.
January 17, 2019, 2:01 amDraymond Green - F - Golden State Warriors
Draymond Green had a solid stat-line on Wednesday as he had season-highs in assists (14) and 3-pointers (four) to go along with 14 points and six rebounds.
This was the game we have all been waiting for from Draymond Green. He has not hit four 3-pointers since March 17, 2018 and prior to this game, he had a career-low 3-point percentage of 23.9 percent. Despite having his worst season since 2013-2014, he is still hovering around top-50 value and will not fall drastically below that point . Hope that this game is a sign of good things to come for Green.
January 17, 2019, 1:54 amStephen Curry - G - Golden State Warriors
Steph Curry dropped 41 points on nine 3-pointers in a 147-140 win over the Pelicans on Wednesday.
Curry is having an MVP-caliber season if not for James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo. He became the first player in NBA history to hit eight or more threes in three straight games. He hit seven 3-pointers in the third quarter alone. Klay Thompson put up 19 points with seven rebounds on 7-of-17 shooting.
January 16, 2019, 9:07 pmDeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors
His minutes and exact fit in the rotation is unclear at this point but DeMarcus Cousins will be given the chance to start by coach Steve Kerr on Friday.
Even with the start, Cousins will likely have a minutes restriction. This will be the first time we'll see him take the floor with the rest of the Warriors' core four players, so keeping an eye on their chemistry is a must.

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) will make his season debut on Friday, according to Draymond Green.
What a time to be alive. Green's not much of a newsbreaker but we'll take him at his word here since he probably has some good sources. All previous indications have been that Cousins will indeed return on Friday but more official reports have stopped short of full confirmation. Make sure Cousins isn't on waivers in any fantasy leagues.

Stephen Curry scored 31 points on 10-of-18 shooting (including eight threes) with six rebounds and four assists in Tuesday's 31-point win over the Nuggets in Denver.
Message sent. Everybody got their licks in on Tuesday, as Klay Thompson also scored 31 points to go with five treys, three steals and four dunks, and Kevin Durant scored 27 points with a typically full stat line. Draymond Green easily could have been ejected for following around Zach Zarba and yelling at him at the top of his lungs for a solid 30 seconds, but finished with four points, six boards, 13 assists, a steal and a trey in the win.
January 15, 2019, 11:52 pmKevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors
Kevon Looney scored nine points on 3-of-6 shooting with 12 rebounds, four assists and one block over 24 minutes in Tuesday's blowout win over the Nuggets.
Looney isn't going to disappear when DeMarcus Cousins returns on Friday, but he probably gets hit at least a little bit but hang on and see how things go in deeper formats.
January 15, 2019, 1:58 pmDeMarcus Cousins - C - Golden State Warriors
Steve Kerr said on Monday that DeMarcus Cousins remains on track to make his season debut on Friday.
Cousins has been rehabbing from a torn Achilles but has been doing full practice work at the G-League and NBA levels for a few weeks now. With Boogie expected to move right into the starting lineup upon his return, he needs to be picked up in all leagues. We'd imagine that he's going to start under some minutes restrictions and may not end up with any huge workloads this year, but the upside makes him impossible to ignore. You shouldn't expect first-round numbers from Cousins given his new circumstances but it's possible that he makes a big impact.

Kevin Durant dropped 28 points with seven rebounds and five assists on 10-of-21 shooting in a win over the Mavs on Sunday.
He got three defensive stats with two 3-pointers to add to his impressive performance. He is top-5 on the season and he is playing like the fantasy beast everyone knows he is. He is putting up positive per-game value in every category except steals and turnovers.
