  • Klay Thompson

    Per Steve Kerr, Klay Thompson (torn left ACL) should be "in great shape and ready to roll" by September/October.

    There has been speculation as to when Thompson may return, as he was pushing to come back this season before the Warriors were ravaged by injuries and went into tank mode. The good news is that Thompson was on track to be fully healthy for opening day next season before the league was suspended. The potential extra months off will only help ensure a healthy Thompson for whenever the 2020-21 season rolls around.

  • Draymond Green

    Head coach Steve Kerr is open to slotting Draymond Green at center more often to give Eric Paschall more opportunity at power forward.

    Green has rarely had an issue playing center over the years, and the NBA is only tending to get smaller nowadays. The Warriors will always find a way to get Green on the floor if they want to, and it will be important to see if he is fully engaged when the Warriors are able to deploy Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson next to him again. Green has seen his minutes slide in recent years, but that could change when the team has a shot at winning games again. As for Paschall, it is good to see that he is still part of the Warriors' plans, but his ability to be an offensive focal point will be limited when the team is healthy again. He'll have to diversify his game to retain any value beyond deeper formats.

  • Stephen Curry

    The Warriors are targeting players that will be able to help right away with their pick in the upcoming draft.

    "Yes, we’ll try to find someone who can come in play right away," said director of player personnel Larry Harris. It's been thought that the Warriors took similar approaches in recent drafts as they've needed cheap contributors to buttress their expensive and star-laden cores, but finding guys who can step right into the mix is tough when you're constantly picking 29th or 30th — all due respect to Jacob Evans and company. They should have no such problems this year with an early lottery selection headed their way. Whoever the Warriors select may have star talent locked into a complementary role to start out, so fantasy players can file this one away for future reference.

    Draymond Green (left knee soreness) has been ruled out ahead of Thursday's contest vs. the Nets.

    The Warriors are expected to have Stephen Curry back in the mix on Thursday but will be without Green against the Nets. Eric Paschall will continue to see more opportunity while Green is sidelined.

    Juan Toscano-Anderson is not expected to go on the Warriors' upcoming road trip as he deals with a sprained left ankle that he will receive an MRI on in the coming days.

    With the Warriors embarking on a five-game road trip after Thursday's game vs. the Nets, Toscano-Anderson can be safely dropped across formats as head coach Steve Kerr said that it is unlikely that Juan joins the team on their upcoming road trip.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry is expected to play in Thursday's game vs. the Nets after recovering from an illness.

    It is truly a bizarre situation in San Francisco with the announcement that there will be no fans in attendance for Thursday's game due to concerns of the coronavirus. Although there won't be fans, it looks like the two-time former MVP will be available, barring any setback. He can be started in all formats whenever he is able to play. Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole will see fewer minutes with Curry back in the mix.

  • Mychal Mulder
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors announced on Tuesday that they have signed guard Mychal Mulder to a three-year contract.

    Golden State could have inked Mulder to a second 10-day contract, but they were impressed enough with him that they wanted to secure his rights beyond this season. In seven games so far, he has averaged 11.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 2.3 triples in 29.1 minutes. Though the Warriors knew Mulder was a quality shooter when they signed him, they have been pleasantly surprised by how reliable he is defensively. With silly season upon us, Mulder deserves consideration if you are looking for some scoring and threes.

  • Juan Toscano-Anderson

    Steve Kerr said on Tuesday that Juan Toscano-Anderson will get another look at his sprained ankle in order to determine the severity of his injury.

    Toscano-Anderson is potentially looking at missing some action so owners should move on from him. We should get a better idea about his injury today but there is no need to wait as he has been trending down in recent days.

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Despite leaving the game briefly on Tuesday after banging knees, Marquese Chriss return to the game and finished with 10 points on 3-of-5 shooting, 10 rebounds and two assists.

    This was a low-end line as far as Chriss’ standards go. His lack of cash counters are the obvious biggest disappointment. He’s been an efficient multi-cat stud since finding his groove with the Warriors. He’s been a top-50 play over the last couple of weeks, so give him a bit of leash to bounce back.

  • Dragan Bender
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Dragan Bender, yes, Dragan Bender led the Warriors in scoring on Tuesday with 23 points (8-of-12 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), seven rebounds, two 3s and three assists in 25 minutes off the bench.

    The Clippers ran away with this game with ease, so Bender got some extra run thanks to the blowout. He's not been much to look at since signing with the Warriors, yo-yoing up and down with erratic lines. This top-end performance could just end up being a tease, so you can comfortably leave him on the wire until he makes a habit of it.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    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.

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss (right knee) headed to the locker room on Tuesday vs. the Clippers with an apparent injury to his right knee but has since returned to the game.

    Chriss has been so consistent since inking a deal with the Warriors and it would be shame if an injury cut his season short. Fantasy owners breathed a sigh of relief when he returned to the game.

    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Juan Toscano-Anderson (left ankle sprain) sustained a left ankle injury in the first half on Tuesday vs. the Clippers and won't return for the remainder of the game.

    Toscano-Anderson had not been getting enough volume, even in a wide-open Warriors rotation, to warrant fantasy consideration. You can move past this one.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry (illness) is sick and won't play on Tuesday vs. the Clippers but is expected to take the court on Thursday against the Nets.

    His return on Thursday will spell a big role reduction for fellow guards Jordan Poole and Mychal Mulder, who will benefit from Curry's absence as they did in the Warriors' last game. Plug him back into your lineups for Thursday with confidence, it sounds like he'll be back out there.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry (illness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Curry went through shootaround earlier on Tuesday, so there is a good chance that he will return for the Warriors' next game against the Nets on Thursday. Curry looked to be in prime form during his return. Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole should again see added opportunities.
