    Kevon Looney drew praise from Steve Kerr after the Warriors' bubble camp session.

    Kerr said that Looney was moving well, feeling healthy and looking good, adding that that is the "best news" the team could take out of their minicamp. Unfortunately, he also hinted that the Warriors would only be looking for 20-25 minutes a night out of Looney, which makes it tough to forecast real fantasy value. Looney was shaping up as a solid late-round sleeper option before last season but injuries kept him on the shelf for most of the season.

    Kevon Looney (core muscle surgery) was able to practice without restrictions during Thursday's session of the Warriors' minicamp.

    Looney underwent core muscle surgery in May and appears to be fully recovered. It is worth monitoring how he progresses through minicamp as well as the team's upcoming training camp as Looney has dealt with injuries ever since injuring himself during the team's 2019 postseason run. This is a positive early sign as Steve Kerr told the media that "He seemed to come through practice really well."

    In what amounted to a lost season for the Warriors (but not if you factor in the high lottery selection that comes with it), they received little from the likes of Kevon Looney and Draymond Green in the front court.

    Looney was never healthy in 2019-20, managing just 20 games and ending with meager averages of 3.4 points and 3.3 boards per contest. It was a similar story with Draymond, as the Warriors finished their season with the worst winning percentage in the league. Looney is on the Warriors' books for one more season in 2020-21, the end of a three-year pact he signed prior to the 2018-19 season. He's going to cost them about $5 million and a trade or a buyout is possible, especially if the Warriors opt to select a big man in the draft. Looney's days of fantasy relevance have come and gone, as he ranked 360th in 9-cat on a per-game basis.

    Kevon Looney had successful surgery on Tuesday to repair a core muscle injury and is expected to be ready to play at the start of the 2020-21 season.

    Looney has been dealing with injuries since the 2019 NBA Finals. He has only been able to suit up in 20 games so far this season and averaged just 13.1 mpg in those contests. When/if the season resumes, Marquese Chriss will have even less competition for minutes in the frontcourt and should continue to be fantasy relevant for the foreseeable future.

    Kevon Looney (left hip soreness) is set to be re-evaluated in three weeks.

    That's pretty much the extra nail in Looney's fantasy coffin. He will not be a factor in fantasy this season.

    Kevon Looney will be out on Saturday vs. the Sixers due to left hip soreness.

    That's four games missed in a row for Looney. He has never been able to carve out a consistent role or consistent level of health to build up some momentum. This will allow Marquese Chriss and Dragan Bender to continue thriving, especially if Draymond Green (knee) misses another game.

    Kevon Looney (left hip soreness) is listed as out for Thursday's game vs. the Raptors.

    Looney has been in and out of the lineup all season and this will be his third straight game on the sidelines with this most recent injury. Dragan Bender will see increased value while Kevon Looney and Draymond Green (knee) are sidelined and is worth streaming in 14-team leagues until the Warriors are healthy.

    Kevon Looney (left hip soreness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets.

    Looney has been a constant on the injury report, in what has been a disappointing season for the big man. Marquese Chriss, Dragan Bender and Juan Toscano-Anderson will all see minutes and usage bumps with Looney joining Draymond Green on the sidelines.

    Kevon Looney (left hip soreness) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Looney finished Saturday's game with 10 points and six boards. However, he was unable to suit up on Sunday and has struggled to get significant playing time. Dragan Bender would stand to benefit if Looney cannot play.

    Kevon Looney will miss Sunday's matchup with the Wizards due to left hip soreness.

    The Warriors are going to be thin on the backline with Looney and Draymond Green sitting out this game. Eric Paschall should be in for a nice night of work, and Juan Toscano-Anderson will be getting the start. Don't forget to keep an eye on Dragan Bender as well. As always with the Warriors, there is value to be found throughout the roster, but it is an ever-shifting situation in terms of who will have the hot hand.

    Kevon Looney (left hip soreness) is questionable to face the Wizards on Sunday.

    Looney has had a terrible season, as injuries have never let him find any sort of rhythm on the floor. He belongs on just about all the waiver wires at this point.

    Draymond Green (right pelvic contusion) is expected to play during Thursday's game against the Lakers.

    His return could mean fewer minutes for Kevon Looney and Eric Paschall. The Warriors have been very conservative with Green this season but he's worth owning for the rebounds, assists, and steals.

    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Marquese Chriss's (left calf) status has been downgraded to out for Sunday's clash with the Pelicans.

    Kevon Looney, Juan Toscano-Anderson and the freshly signed Dragan Bender will see more action with Chriss out. As long as he doesn't miss an extended period of time, Chriss has shown no signs of slowing down after inking a new contract with the Warriors. Over the last two months he sits firmly inside the top-100 and there is no shortage of playing time for the Warriors this season.

    Kevon Looney (left hip) is not on Thursday's injury report.

    Looney has been limited to 11.7 mpg and just 15 games on the season due to persistent injuries. He might find his way into the starting five by the end of the year but fantasy GMs can definitely take a wait-and-see approach with this one.

    Kevin Looney (left hip soreness) will not play on Wednesday.

    Marquese Chriss has been on a roll and this news won't hurt his stats against the Suns. Looney hasn't played big minutes this season, but this issue shouldn't cost him much more time.
