    Jacob Evans (concussion) will be absent from Monday's game against the Blazers.

    That makes three consecutive games that Evans has been forced to sit out. He has not been able to crack the Warriors depleted rotation for a consistent role this year, and it is safe to assume that it is not going to happen anytime soon. Evans is only worth owning in the deepest of fantasy leagues when he is healthy.

    Jacob Evans has been ruled out for Saturday with a concussion.

    Jacob Evans should be left on the waiver wire in all leagues. There are plenty of players ahead of him in the Warriors' rotation so it's unlikely he will have fantasy value this season.

    Jacob Evans (concussion) will not play on Thursday.

    Evans had a small window of opportunity to carve out minutes while the Warriors do their contract dance with Damion Lee and Ky Bowman, but it's likely that that passes by without any fanfare now. Evans isn't on the fantasy radar.

    After getting an elbow in the face and going to the locker room in Tuesday's game, Jacob Evans was being evaluated and then heading to the hospital for further tests.

    Hopefully Evans gets good news quickly. The Warriors should provide an update on Wednesday.

    Jacob Evans went to the locker room in the first half of Tuesday's game against the Mavs after catching a Dwight Powell elbow in the face.

    Evans was down on the court for a few minutes, so it's nothing minor. With an 18-point deficit at half-time, there's no rush for the Warriors to get him back out there.

    Jacob Evans flashed some of his old form on Friday, posting 13 points on 4-of-14 shooting with two rebounds, two assists, one trey, one steal and two blocks.

    Evans has been fantasy-relevant in past seasons and could be on the rise as a deep-league target moving forward.

    Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) will be available on Monday.

    Evans last played on October 28. He could displace Ky Bowman but isn't especially relevant in fantasy at this juncture.

    Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) is officially listed as questionable on the latest NBA Injury Report.

    Coach Steve Kerr told the media earlier on Thursday that Evans should be considered questionable for Friday's contest but the official injury report lists him as out. Regardless, Evans is clearly close to returning to the court. When he does return, he will likely take away some minutes from two-way player, Ky Bowman.

    Coach Steve Kerr told the media that Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) is questionable for Friday's matchup against the Bulls.

    Evans has missed the last 20 games after suffering this injury. If he does return on Friday, the Warriors will have 12 healthy bodies for the first time since October 30th. Evans is off the fantasy radar outside of 30-team leagues for now but could see an increased role as the season rolls along.

    Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) has returned to practice but will miss the Warriors' next two games.

    Evans was originally injured over a month ago and has been slow to recover from his soft issue injury. His return coincides with D'Angelo Russell's return from a thumb injury, so temper expectations for Evans. The Warriors backcourt will suddenly become crowded at some point next week, so it's hard to predict who will be worth rostering beyond Russell at that point. Evans has missed a golden opportunity.

    Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) will be re-evaluated again in 2 weeks after a test revealed improvement on Tuesday.

    Evans has some appeal with Stephen Curry (hand) out for a while, but will need to get healthy first. He is a name to consider in the coming weeks when he gets back in the fold on a depleted Warriors team.

  • D'Angelo Russell
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    D'Angelo Russell will be re-evaluated in two weeks after an MRI confirmed his right thumb sprain.

    This is a tough blow for Russell as he was playing out of his mind over the last five games, putting up late first-round value with 29.6 points and 7.0 assists on 51.0 percent shooting. Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole and Alec Burks will continue getting all of the backcourt minutes with Burks being the only must-add of the group for the near-term. Jacob Evans should return to the lineup before Russell and jump right into the rotation as well.

    Jacob Evans (left adductor strain) will be re-evaluated in three weeks.

    Evans had some appeal as a ball-handling wing in the aftermath of the Stephen Curry (hand) injury, so this lengthy timetable is a bit of a buzz kill on that front. Leave him on your wire, but keep him in mind whenever he’s healthy enough to suit up again.

  • Omari Spellman
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors exercised the third-year contract options on both Omari Spellman and Jacob Evans, guaranteeing them through the 2020-21 season.

    Omari Spellman was traded to the Warriors from the Hawks in exchange for Damian Jones. After failing to exercise Kevon Looney's third-year option, the Warriors will likely be more cautious with their young talent. It is a rebuilding time for the team so it is possible for Spellman to play significant minutes at time this season although he is behind Willie Cauley-Stein and Kevon Looney on the depth chart.

    The Warriors have exercised Jacob Evans' third-year option.

    The sophomore shooting guard will get another year to prove himself in what could soon become a rebuilding project. Evans is currently sidelined indefinitely with an adductor strain, but should he return before Steph Curry, he has a chance to emerge from the pack. Unfortunately, the same could be said of at least four other wing players on the Warriors' squad right now.
