  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors are expecting Kevon Looney to be back for their regular season opener against the Clippers.

    Looney's return to action will be important for the Warriors as they are already thin on the backline. He's displayed some nice growth these past four years and is lined up for a big year as the starting center. He could give owners mid-round value if he avoids heading to the free throw line constantly.

  • Willie Cauley-Stein
    C, Golden State Warriors

    Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot strain) got some on-court work in after Friday's shootaround.

    It was the first on-court work WCS has had since suffering the left foot strain so it's good to see him back out there. He's still set to miss at least four regular season games but when he returns he should be inserted into the Warriors' starting lineup. He's worth a flier in the later rounds of drafts.

  • Marquese Chriss

    The Warriors have converted Marquese Chriss' Exhibit 9 deal to a non-guaranteed contract.

    Chriss is set to make the final roster, though the team will still have some flexibility in case it doesn't work out. There will definitely be minutes available while Willie Cauley-Stein is out, but Chriss could fade to the background if he fails to impress while the team is shorthanded. He's worth a shot in deeper formats, at least for a short-term boost.

  • Alfonzo McKinnie
    SF, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors will waive Alfonzo McKinnie, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    It's been quite a fall from grace for McKinnie, who was initially projected as the opening night starter at small forward after playing a solid role for the Warriors last season. Ultimately he was undone by having a non-guaranteed contract. He figures to land on his feet, while Golden State's wing rotation gets even thinner. Jacob Evans, Jordan Poole and Glenn Robinson III are going to get more minutes, while this move also means that Marquese Chriss has almost surely made the final roster.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell scored 23 points on 8-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers in Wednesday's preseason match against the Lakers.

    Russell played 27 minutes, which was near the 30 minute mark that the Warriors said they'd play him. He was one of the few productive Warriors players in tonight's game and should slot in as the second highest usage player behind Stephen Curry (rest) which means he'll be someone to target in the earlier rounds.

  • Draymond Green
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Draymond Green scored 10 points on 4-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block against the Lakers on Wednesday.

    Green went 0-for-5 from deep and if he can't get his 3-point shooting right, it'll hurt his fantasy value a bit. He's still going to get it done defensively and the Warriors are going to hand him more shots this year so his baseline counting stats production is still safe.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson III (illness) will miss Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Lakers.

    He was reported as not feeling great before tip off but it doesn't appear to be an issue that will keep him sidelined long. He had been playing well enough to earn and edge for starting consideration at SF. Alfonzo McKinnie will start in his place, and needs to make a strong case for rotation minutes, much less a shot at the starting role.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry (rest) will not play in Wednesday's preseason tilt against the Lakers.

    No surpises here, as it was reported on Monday that he was likely to sit this one out. Jacob Evans wll get the start, and should actually see decent time handling the ball playing next to D'Angelo Russell.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Omari Spellman (back) has been ruled out of Wednesday's exhibition matchup vs. the Lakers.

    With Spellman ruled out, the Warriors will play Marquese Chriss and Eric Paschall big minutes. Both Chriss and Paschall make for low-priced options in Wednesday's DFS slate.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    According to Marcus Thompson II, the Warriors are not expecting to engage in much load management with Stephen Curry.

    Curry will be even more vital to the success of the Warriors this season. As a result, the team is being proactive in managing his fatigue and soreness but does not plan to rest him for full games too often. This appears to be good news for Curry's already high fantasy value.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors are planning to give Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and D'Angelo Russell 30-35 minutes with the regular rotation around them in Friday's preseason matchup with the Lakers.

    It looks like the Warriors are going to make their best attempt at a regular-season dress rehearsal here. DFS players take note.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Steve Kerr said that Kevon Looney (right hamstring strain) will not play the rest of the preseason, but the team is hopeful to have him for the regular-season opener.

    The Warriors are counting on Looney to play a significant role for them this year, whether it is starting or off the bench. With Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot sprain) already out for the start of the regular season, the Warriors badly need Looney back on the court.

  • Damion Lee
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Damion Lee scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with nine boards, two assists and three steals in Monday's preseason game against the Lakers.

    Lee had a solid game and should find himself into some rotational minutes, but Jordan Poole (eight points, one rebound, three assists and two triples) is a more intriguing prospect while both are irrelevant in fantasy.

  • Marquese Chriss
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss scored 14 points with 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and three blocks in Monday's game against the Lakers.

    Warriors players and coaches have been voicing their admiration for Chriss and his game this preseason and it actually looks like he has a solid chance to make the final roster. There are still plenty of things getting in the way of Chriss being a strong fantasy asset and we've seen this hype train plenty of times so for now he's a guy to watch.

  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Steph Curry scored 17 points on 6-of-17 shooting with three 3-pointers, a rebound, three assists, two steals and two blocks in Monday's preseason game against the Lakers.

    Curry didn't shoot the ball well, but we're not worried at all about him. He dropped 40 points a few nights ago and the Warriors are going to let their MVP run wild this year.
