    According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Jackie MacMullan of ESPN, the NBA is close to signing off on a secondary bubble location in Chicago for the eight teams left out of the league resumption with a target date of September.

    They went on to say that this bubble would allow those eight teams who were not invited to Orlando to have an opportunity to have mini-training camps as well as games. It has been reported throughout the last few months that the teams that were not invited should have an opportunity to prepare for next season. Many of the teams who were not included would benefit greatly from additional practice time and game reps as most of these teams have young players who need to continue to develop their skills. There will still be a lot of logistics that need to be ironed out so this a situation to monitor as we learn more.

    The Warriors opened their practice facility on Monday, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

    Slater adds that five players showed up for voluntary workouts. It's the first time that Golden State's gym has been open in over two months, and there are only three teams who have yet to get players back into team facilities. While it must be nice for the players to get back to some kind of business, the Warriors are not expected to be playing any more games this season given their league-worst record and the likelihood that the NBA trims the fat rather than ask every team to play out the season.

    Certain NBA franchises in highly-restricted areas due to COVID-19 are inquiring with league officials about heading straight to the proposed "bubbles" rather than heading to an alternate location to train, completing a quarantine, then going to the bubble and completing a second quarantine period, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

    The idea behind this is to avoid quarantining twice, first for a training period and then for again when they reach the bubble. Since players on these teams are (theoretically) already under heavy self-quarantine restrictions, this could potentially come to fruition. It seems like a realistic proposition at this point, although everything is still in a planning stage as far as an NBA return is concerned. Only time will tell and there are rumblings that teams are preparing to recall the majority of their players on or around June 1. It seems like some definitive announcements might finally be somewhat imminent.

    California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that professional sports may resume operations without fans starting in June.

    This is good news for the NBA as there are multiple teams in the league call California their home state. That said, the league being a national sport with franchises across many states, there would need to be a broader consensus of loosening of protocols surrounding the protection of the public from the COVID-19 virus. All told, this is still an encouraging step in the right direction that the NBA will be able to resume the 2019-20 season this year.

    Steve Kerr expressed his pessimism in regards to resuming the 2019-2020 NBA campaign during a Zoom call on Tuesday, bluntly stating that "everyone is assuming that this is kind of it," adding that he remains in touch with his players.

    Warriors star and face of the franchise, Stephen Curry, also chipped in earlier in the day on Tuesday, indicating that "it would suck" having to play NBA games without any fans in attendance. Kerr is the first prominent NBA figure to publicly express extreme doubt of a continuation of this season. Unfortunately, it is a very real possibility and an outcome basketball fans must prepare for.

    The Warriors are targeting players that will be able to help right away with their pick in the upcoming draft.

    "Yes, we’ll try to find someone who can come in play right away," said director of player personnel Larry Harris. It's been thought that the Warriors took similar approaches in recent drafts as they've needed cheap contributors to buttress their expensive and star-laden cores, but finding guys who can step right into the mix is tough when you're constantly picking 29th or 30th — all due respect to Jacob Evans and company. They should have no such problems this year with an early lottery selection headed their way. Whoever the Warriors select may have star talent locked into a complementary role to start out, so fantasy players can file this one away for future reference.

    Stephen Curry is expected to play in Thursday's game vs. the Nets after recovering from an illness.

    It is truly a bizarre situation in San Francisco with the announcement that there will be no fans in attendance for Thursday's game due to concerns of the coronavirus. Although there won't be fans, it looks like the two-time former MVP will be available, barring any setback. He can be started in all formats whenever he is able to play. Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole will see fewer minutes with Curry back in the mix.

    Stephen Curry (illness) is sick and won't play on Tuesday vs. the Clippers but is expected to take the court on Thursday against the Nets.

    His return on Thursday will spell a big role reduction for fellow guards Jordan Poole and Mychal Mulder, who will benefit from Curry's absence as they did in the Warriors' last game. Plug him back into your lineups for Thursday with confidence, it sounds like he'll be back out there.

    Stephen Curry (illness) is being listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Clippers.

    Curry went through shootaround earlier on Tuesday, so there is a good chance that he will return for the Warriors' next game against the Nets on Thursday. Curry looked to be in prime form during his return. Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole should again see added opportunities.

    Stephen Curry (illness) participated in Tuesday's shootaround and is being considered questionable against the Clippers.

    Curry missed Saturday's game against the Sixers with the illness but looks to be progressing towards a return to action. Curry played his first game in months on Thursday and put up 23 points, seven rebounds, seven assists and three treys, showing his customary elite production. Pay attention to his status as we inch closer to tip-off.

    Stephen Curry (illness) is questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Clippers.

    Curry missed Saturday's contest with this illness and hopefully can recover to play his second game since returning from a 58-game absence for his hand fracture. Curry played great in his first game back and has a chance at posting top-20 per game value with first-round upside moving forward. The games played will be the deciding factor in how useful Curry is during the final weeks of the season.

    Stephen Curry (illness) will not play against the 76ers on Saturday.

    Curry played 27 minutes on Thursday when he returned from a 58-game absence and put up 23 points on 6-of-16 shooting with seven rebounds, seven assist and three triples. This is not a back-to-back game but the Warriors will surely not push their franchise player after such a long absence and playoffs out of reach. Mychal Mulder and Jordan Poole should see an uptick in minutes as they both saw a decline when Curry returned on Thursday.

    Stephen Curry returned from his 58-game absence in Thursday's 113-121 loss to the Raptors and scored 23 points on 6-of-16 shooting while adding seven rebounds, seven dimes and three 3-pointers.

    Curry's game first back was as expected. He came out, shot a ton of triples and racked up the dimes as well. The efficiency from deep wasn't quite there, but it'll turn around soon. His vision and passing were on point though and his teammates weren't used to getting fed the ball and being so open so that'll be a quick adjustment period for everyone involved. Curry should start putting up some big lines soon.

    Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry will play roughly 25 minutes in his return from left hand surgery on Thursday night.

    After missing 58 games this season, Curry is on track to make his return tonight at home against the defending champion Toronto Raptors. Coach Kerr estimates that Curry will play around 25 minutes. Kerr stated, "We’ll play him in shorter bursts tomorrow, probably five- or six-minute bursts. I imagine we’ll keep him around 25 minutes." The goal until the end of the season will be to incorporate Curry back into the lineup to get familiar with Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green. Get him back into your lineups.

    According to Anthony Slater of the Athletic, Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) will make his return to the court on Thursday vs. the Raptors.

    Curry has missed the last 58 games after injuring his hand in the fourth game of the season. He should not be expected to play huge minutes in his first game back but can be locked in lineups across formats as he has proven to be one of the best fantasy players in the league over the last several seasons. That being said, fantasy GM's should temper their expectations as the Warriors are already looking ahead to next season.
