    Omari Spellman was unable to return after spraining his ankle in the first half, finishing with four points in Saturday's loss to the Thunder.

    Spellman played just 12 minutes for the Warriors before injuring his ankle. Unfortunately for the already injury-depleted Warriors this left them with just eight serviceable players for the rest of the game.

    Omari Spellman sprained his left ankle and is questionable to return on Saturday against the Thunder.

    The severity of the sprain is yet to be determined. The Warriors are having the worst luck with injuries this season as their depth continues to be depleted. Willie Cauley-Stein and Marquese Chriss look to benefit the most if Spellman isn't able to play.

    Willie Cauley-Stein produced four points, eight rebounds, a steal and three blocks in 25 minutes on Friday night.

    Cauley-Stein is quietly returning top-155/115 value (8/9-cat) so far this season despite a pretty heavy cap on his minutes. This game should nudge WCS closer to 20 mpg on the season but he's been a nice source of boards and strong percentages — we'd expect his blocks to climb and his perfect free throw mark to crumble shortly. Omari Spellman had six points, five boards, three dimes and a block in 15 minutes while Marquese Chriss had eight points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 13 minutes. If the Warriors keep this committee going it's going to be tough for fantasy managers to trust any player on a night-to-night basis.

    Omari Spellman went a perfect 6-for-6 from the field Wednesday, ending with 13 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and two steals.

    Spellman looked good coming off the bench in this one and playing 18 minutes. Of the Warriors big men, Spellman posted the best line in this contest, with Willie Cauley-Stein only mustering four points and four boards in 20 minutes. Marquese Chriss only had four points but contributed with seven rebounds to go along with an assist and a steal. WCS is probably the one you want to own here, but the situation will only get murkier when Kevon Looney returns. Spellman looks to be a pick up in deeper leagues.

    Draymond Green had a wrap on his left index finger after Friday's game and said he was unsure whether he will play on Saturday versus Charlotte.

    The Warriors are calling it a sprain and the swollen finger is now in addition to his back, knee and elbow issues. Green finished with 34 minutes on the night but said he couldn't grip the basketball since the second quarter and was passing and dribbling exclusively with his right hand after that point. If Green cannot go on Saturday, expect Eric Paschall to draw the start with Marquese Chriss and Omari Spellman playing expanded roles off the bench.

    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.

    Omari Spellman was able to produce nine points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, three blocks and a 3-pointer in 25 minutes off the bench in Sunday's ugly loss to the Thunder.

    Spellman has typically been a source of out-of-position threes and limited production elsewhere, so this one is definitely eye-catching. He's worth a look in deeper formats while Kevon Looney and Willie Cauley-Stein are out, though we wouldn't expect this much defensive production again for quite some time. The fact that the Warriors were down by 33 at halftime certainly messes with the box score, too.

    Omari Spellman scored eight points on 2-of-6 shooting with a 3-pointer and five rebounds on Thursday.

    Spellman got extra run in garbage time with plenty of other Warriors, but is waiver wire fodder as long as the Warriors are healthy.

    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.

  • Kevon Looney
    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.

    Omari Spellman started at center for the Warriors on Saturday and put up six points (2-of-9 shooting), nine rebounds, one assist, two triples and one steal.

    Spellman got the starting nod because both Kevon Looney and Willie Cauley-Stein are both dealing with respective injuries. Spellman should only be targeted in ultra-deep leagues this season.

    Omari Spellman is expected to be the starting center for Saturday's game versus the Lakers.

    Kevon Looney and Willie Cauley-Stein have been battling injuries and have already been ruled out making Spellman a decent DFS option for the preseason slate.

  • Kevon Looney

    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.

    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Kevon Looney (hamstring) and Alen Smailagić (ankle) both left practice early on Wednesday.

    This news is very concerning for the Warriors who are already without Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot sprain) for at least the first four regular season games. There is still the possibility that this injury is minor and that the Warriors are being cautious with their promising big. Stay tuned for more updates and look for Omari Spellman to be the "next man up". Eric Paschall is another option in the frontcourt but it is very hard to trust rookies out of the gate.

    Steve Kerr mentioned that the Warriors plan to use Omari Spellman as a floor-spacing big man if he can stay in shape.

    Kerr also called Spellman "really, really skilled." Spellman hit 34.4 percent of his three-pointers last season off the bench for the Hawks. However, he is unlikely to be particularly valuable in fantasy unless his minutes increase dramatically under Kerr.
