    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.

    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.

    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.

    Marquese Chriss will start against the Lakers on Monday.

    With Willie Cauley-Stein and Kevon Looney dealing with injuries, Chriss is getting a big chance to shine. He's been quite impressive in the preseason so far and is starting to look like a deep-league fantasy target, at least while the Warriors are at less than full strength.

    Marquese Chriss scored eight points on 3-of-6 shooting with 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and two blocks on Thursday.

    Chriss actually looked decent tonight and it's a great sign that he didn't attempt any triples and had only one turnover. Kevon Looney (hamstring) didn't play and is going to get the majority of the minutes, but if Chriss can play smart, he can add to fantasy teams in a small role, but still needs to prove it.

    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney (hamstring) and Alec Burks (ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.

    Looney suffered a minor tweak to his hamstring exactly a week ago while this is the first we are hearing about Burks' ankle injury. The Warriors are being extremely cautious with Looney as they are already without starting center Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot sprain) for the start of the regular season. Monitor both of them as they will have another opportunity to play in the preseason on Monday vs. the Lakers. They should be fine to start the regular season barring any setback. Expect Marquese Chriss, Omari Spellman and Eric Paschall to see a lot of minutes at center on Thursday. Burks' absence will mean more minutes for youngsters Jordan Poole and Jacob Evans.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney (hamstring strain) has been ruled out of Saturday's preseason opener vs. the Lakers.

    Looney tweaked his hamstring in Wednesday's practice and as a result will miss the team's first preseason game. It didn't seem like his injury was serious as there were reports that he rode the stationary bicycle after practice ended on Wednesday. The Warriors are likely being cautious with Looney as they will already start the season without starting center, Willie Cauley-Stein, who is dealing with a left foot sprain. With Alen Smailagić dealing with an ankle sprain as well, the Warriors are likely to play Omari Spellman, Marquese Chriss, and Eric Paschall at the center position on Saturday. Spellman could have some late-round appeal in fantasy drafts while Chriss and Paschall are players to watch.

    The Warriors and Marquese Chriss reached a deal on a non-guaranteed camp invite on Tuesday.

    Chriss is a former top-ten draft pick but has yet to do anything of note in his career. On his fourth team, Chriss will look to try and latch on with the Warriors who potentially could have room on their 15 man roster should Chriss impress. He's off the fantasy radar either way.

    Marquese Chriss logged 16 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Hornets.

    Chriss capped off his season with eight points, seven boards, a dime and a steal. The former eighth pick in the 2016 draft, Chriss played for his second and third teams in his career this season and was acquired by both of those teams as a throw in piece to a salary dump trade. He just barely cracked the top-400 in 8-cat formats – 399 – but wasn't as lucky in 9-cat formats as he finished as the 427th best player.

    Marquese Chriss will start at power forward on Monday night with Kevin Love (back) out.

    Chriss will match up with Jon Leuer as the Pistons have chosen to rest Blake Griffin. The best-case scenario is that Chriss comes through with some defensive stats and maybe a 3-pointer, but he's only a streaming option or an add in very deep leagues.

    Marquese Chriss has been suspended one game as a result of his altercation with Serge Ibaka on Monday.

    Chriss gets the automatic one-game for throwing a punch, even though he didn't really instigate the situation — assuming you don't count whatever it was he said that set Ibaka off in the first place. He probably wouldn't get any discipline had he stopped at the shove, but that's tough to do when someone else is trying to fight you. Chriss misses a chance to get some extended run on Tuesday with Kevin Love resting, but he'll be fine to deploy as usual going forward. He's not much of a fantasy target.

    Marquese Chriss was ejected Monday night after a scuffle with Serge Ibaka that included some thrown punches.

    Chriss had just three boards and a block in his 14 minutes, and he could be looking at a short suspension. He's not worth starting unless the Cavs rest about three members of the frontcourt.

    Larry Nance Jr. suffered an apparent chest injury on Friday and will not return.

    We should have an update after the Cavs run some tests but if Nance is forced to miss any additional games, Ante Zizic and then Marquese Chriss would next in line to take his minutes. Nance finished with two boards and a block in almost 17 minutes of action.

    Marquese Chriss started for Ante Zizic (concussion) on Saturday but failed to make an impact with only nine points (2-of-8 shooting), four rebounds, two 3s, one assist and one steal, but also with five turnovers.

    His line was arguably more bad than good if you owned him in 9-cat thanks to those ugly turnovers. His minus-25 on the +/- column speaks volumes. He's not worth owning in competitive leagues right now.
