  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney returned to action on Friday and posted nine points (4-of-4 shooting), eight rebounds and one block after missing three games with right pelvic soreness.

    He played 15 minutes as the Warriors were likely treating him with kid gloves in his first game back. DeMarcus Cousins dropped a huge line and as long as the Dubs' starters are healthy, there's going to be little left on the plate for Looney to enjoy in fantasy.

  • Shaun Livingston - G - Golden State Warriors

    Shaun Livingston (neck spasms) and Kevon Looney (right pelvic soreness) are available to play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    Neither Livingston nor Looney are great options for tonight or season-long. They can be left on the wire.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney (right pelvic soreness) is expected to return from a two-game absence Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    Looney will slot back into the backup center spot for the Warriors and his perimeter defense will be a welcome return after watching DeMarcus Cousins struggle in pick and roll situations over the past two games. Looney has only logged 9.8 minutes per game over the past two weeks, and this should be a situation where his real game influence will outweigh his fantasy relevance. Looney may see his minutes decrease even more once Andrew Bogut joins the team next week.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Steve Kerr says he expects Kevon Looney (right pelvic soreness), who has missed the last two games, to return Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    Looney will bring back some much needed defense from the five spot for Golden State, though his return to action doesn't have much fantasy relevance as he has only played 9.8 minutes per game over the past two weeks.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney (right pelvic soreness) is out for Tuesday's game vs. the Celtics, but was on the floor for shootaround prior to the game.

    Looney will miss another game with the pelvic soreness, but seems close to returning since he was able to attend shootaround. With Steve Kerr confirming the Warriors' interest in Andrew Bogut, Looney's role may be reduced further.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney received and MRI for his pelvic injury and it revealed a strain, however he is still being considered day-to-day.

    It seems like the Warriors are getting closer and closer to signing Andrew Bogut which would of course have an effect on Looney. Over the past two weeks he's outside of the top-300 and only playing 9.8 minutes per game. Owners can likely find someone else worth owning on their wire.

  • Kevon Looney - Team - Golden State Warriors

    According the Shams Charania, the Warriors are being considered the favorites to sign Andrew Bogut.

    Bogut has been playing for the Sydney Kings in his home country of Australia. The team has already given him clearance to make another run in the NBA and it seems like a matter of time before he signs with a team. Bogut played with the Warriors for four seasons where he averaged 6.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.7 blocks. Bogut would back up DeMarcus Cousins and likely push Kevon Looney down the depth chart.

    Kevon Looney (right knee soreness) will not play against the 76ers on Saturday.

    Looney was providing value when Cousin's was still on a minutes limit but that is now a thing of the past. He has played less than 10 minutes in two of the last four and was held scoreless in each of the last two games. His absence won't have much of a fantasy impact.

  • Klay Thompson - G - Golden State Warriors

    Klay Thompson (right knee soreness) and Kevon Looney (right pelvic soreness) are listed as questionable to play on Saturday against the Sixers.

    Kevin Durant got the last game off so we wouldn’t be surprised if coach Steve Kerr gives Thompson and/or Looney the night off. We should have an update tomorrow before tipoff.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Despite starting for a resting DeMarcus Cousins on Wednesday, Kevon Looney fizzled with zero points (no attempts), six rebounds, two assists and one steal to his name.

    The zero attempts is a red flag and will be something that will lose Looney even more minutes moving forward. When Draymond Green (five points, three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3) fouled out with two minutes and change left, it was Jordan Bell who was subbed in and not Looney. Bell finished with 10 points, six boards, two dimes and a steal. He's the low-end Dubs center to own right now in deep leagues.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney will start in place of DeMarcus Cousins (rest) on Wednesday night against the Heat.

    This was the expected move considering Looney has been a valuable rotation piece all season long. His matchup got a lot easier when it was announced that Hassan Whiteside would miss this game with a hip injury, so Looney is on the board if you're looking for a cheap DFS option. Jordan Bell and Jonas Jerebko should also see more run tonight as the Warriors fill Cousins' minutes up front, though Looney remains the safest bet for production.

    Kevon Looney only managed two points on 1-of-5 shooting in a start against the Blazers on Wednesday.

    He did add eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks to the box score. He can be left on the wire now that DeMarcus Cousins is back for the Warriors.

    Kevon Looney will be starting for the Warriors in their tilt vs. the Blazers on Wednesday.

    Looney has taken a hit since DeMarcus Cousins' minutes have risen lately but will get a chance to pop in DFS tonight in what should be a good matchup vs. the Blazers.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney was productive on Thursday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, two steals and two blocks.

    Looney had another solid outing and has emerged as one of the best bench players for Golden State. He knows his role as the guy to stay near the basket and wait for the Stephen Curry or Draymond Green pass and it's why he's so efficient at scoring the ball. Coach Kerr loves to play him so he's a strong bet to earn extra minutes if DeMarcus Cousins or Draymond Green have any further rest days.

  • Kevon Looney - F - Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney gave the Warriors quality 18 minutes off the bench vs. the Pacers on Monday, recording a new career-high in points with 15 on 6-of-7 shooting.

    Looney also went 3-for-3 from the line and added five rebounds, two assists and one block to the box score. Despite his low minutes, Looney has been delivering decent end-of-bench value for teams in 14-deep or larger, so give him a look for a boost in boards and blocks.
