Marquese Chriss will be active for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.
This doesn't guarantee that Chriss will be fantasy relevant so we'll have to see what the rotation looks like with Chriss back on board.

The Warriors are planning to sign Marquese Chriss on a two-way deal after waiving him last week to clear room to sign Damion Lee.
The Warriors never wanted to let Chriss go but had to make a tough move to convert Lee's contract into a standard deal for the remainder of the season. With the creativity that the Warriors have shown, it looks like they'll have both Lee and Chriss through at least February. Omari Spellman has been hot lately, but Chriss's return will put a dent into his floor time.

The Warriors and forward Marquese Chriss aren’t ruling out a reunion after Chriss was waived by the team on Monday night.
“He’s a good young talent,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said. “He’s developed. He has a fantastic attitude. He’s somebody we were all really hoping we could keep.” Chriss’ salary was set to become fully guaranteed on Tuesday, while it can still be guaranteed if he is claimed off waivers 48 hours after the time he was released. If not, he becomes an unrestricted free agent and it will be interesting to see if another NBA team takes a flier on him.

Monte Poole of NBC Sports is reporting that the Warriors and Marquese Chriss have a mutual interest in a reunion.
The Warriors released Chriss earlier on Tuesday to make room to sign Damion Lee to the 15-man roster. The team has to make another tough decision to make room for Ky Bowman if they want to keep him on the roster all year. Chriss showed some flashes, and likely would be welcomed back if the Warriors can find a way to make it work.

Shortly after the Warriors’ loss to the Kings at Golden 1 Center on Monday night, team officials informed center Marquese Chriss that he had been waived.
Chriss signed with the Warriors in September. His contract would have become fully guaranteed if had not been waived by 5 p.m. EST on Tuesday. He showed some signs of life this year and averaged 7.3 points and 5.4 rebounds in 36 games. He will be eligible to sign anywhere as an unrestricted free agent should he clear waivers 48 hours after being released.

Omari Spellman scored a career-high 23 points on Saturday and added five rebounds, four steals and four 3-pointers in 20 minutes.
Spellman caught fire and shot 8-of-11 from the field and 4-of-4 from beyond the arc. Spellman outplayed Eric Paschall (nine points in 19 minutes) and Marquese Chriss (eight points in 18 minutes) but won't have another game like this for a long time. Spellman can be left on the wire outside of 30-team leagues.

Marquese Chriss started again on Thursday but only played 22 minutes, finishing with six points, seven rebounds, five assists and a block.
Not bad considering Chriss left the game in the first quarter after getting cut on the face. He remains a high-upside option but his minutes could vanish when the Warriors get healthy, so just enjoy it while you can.

Marquese Chriss suffered a laceration on his face and headed to the locker room on Thursday to address the bleeding.
It was less than a minute into the first quarter when Chriss got hurt. Omari Spellman immediately checked in for him.

Damion Lee kept it going with 20 points (8-of-13 FGs), seven boards, two dimes and two treys in 40 minutes in an overtime loss to the Spurs on Tuesday.
Make sure Lee isn't available in your leagues. He's fourishing in the starting lineup and can be started in all leagues right now. Marquese Chriss also made the most of a starting opportunity in this one with seven points, 11 boards, five dimes, a steal and a block in 34 minutes.

Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.
He was doubtful coming into this one so this shouldn't come as much of a surprise to his owners. Marquese Chriss will draw the start in his absence but he's not the most reliable player so don't expect much.

Willie Cauley-Stein (illness) is doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.
Cauley-Stein is expected to miss the next two games, so this isn't surprising. Kevon Looney (left abdominal soreness) will also miss this game, so Marquese Chriss should get another good opportunity to shine.

Willie Cauley-Stein will miss games on Tuesday and Thursday due to illness.
Cauley-Stein has upside due to his shot blocking ability, but his scoring has been inconsistent. Expect Marquese Chriss to help fill the void.

Marquese Chriss scored 16 points off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Mavs, hitting 5-of-9 shots (6-of-8 FTs) with five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in just 17 minutes.
Chriss profiles as a great tank commander down the stretch and once some of the contract stuff gets figured out for the Warriors his ownership percentages are going to rise. He has big upside if cut loose for 25+ minutes per game and has done well enough to stay — roster math aside.

Marquese Chriss played just 12 minutes and finished with six points and two rebounds in Wednesday's Christmas Day win over the Rockets.
Chriss getting less minutes and touches on a Christmas Day game against the Rockets isn't surprising and he has four games this week to plod his way to value while also giving owners a shot at some upside if he can man the tank down the stretch.
