    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.

    Kevon Looney (neuropathy) underwent a series of tests and an update regarding his timeline will be announced in two weeks.

    The Warriors have been decimated by injuries as they are not currently playing a single player that was on the roster for them in the 2019 NBA Finals. With Looney ruled out for the next two weeks, continue to expect Willie Cauley-Stein to start at center while Omari Spellman and Marquese Chriss will see minutes off the bench.

  • Glenn Robinson III
    SG, Golden State Warriors

    Glenn Robinson III was nearly a non-factor on Monday, chipping just five points, six rebounds and three assists in 31 minutes.

    This is classic Glenn-Rob, who is notorious for just vanishing on seemingly random nights, even ones as fortuitous as this upset win over the Blazers. Wille Cauley-Stein did better on a per-minute level, chiming in for 10 points (4-of-5 shooting), three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 16 minutes. Both players are only worth owning in ultra-deep leagues until they provide solid lines on a consistent basis.

    Willie Cauley-Stein scored eight points and added eight rebounds, two assists, and a block and steal in Saturday's 93-87 loss to the Hornets.

    The Warriors continue to bring WCS along slowly, limiting his minutes to just 21 in tonight's outing. He still had a fine outing though the Warriors do not really have any incentive to rush him back.

  • Eric Paschall
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    The Warriors will start Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole, Glenn Robinson, Eric Paschall, Willie Cauley-Stein vs. the Hornets on Saturday.

    Yikes. This looks like it could fathomably be Santa Cruz Warriors' bench unit, but this is what the former three-time champions have been reduced to after losing a number of key players during the offseason and suffering significant injuries early on in 2019-20. As for this starting five, pick a name out of a hat. Bowman is a bit of an unknown, but he put up an intriguing line with 3 steals two games ago. Poole is a chucker who can score and hit threes with little to no peripheral stats. Paschall looks like he belongs in the NBA, but doesn't have the highest upside. Cauley-Stein will demolish your free throws and won't provide good blocks for a center. If you're the type to gamble, all of these players should probably be rostered, but predicting who will emerge out of the pack right now is folly.

    Willie Cauley-Stein was nigh forgettable with six points on 3-of-7 shooting with five rebounds an one steal in 17 minutes on Friday night.

    WCS is a low-end option right now, mostly reserved as a deep-league streamer. Look for big-man production elsewhere for now.

    Willie Cauley-Stein will be starting at center for the Warrirors on Friday.

    The move allows Draymond Green to slide over to a more comfortable role at power forward. WCS has a lot to prove, making him worth a streaming slot while Kevon Looney remains on the mend.

    Willie Cauley-Stein scored 12 points (5-of-5 shooting) with five rebounds in his debut for the Warriors on Wednesday.

    Cauley-Stein was limited to 12 minutes but still put up a good stat line and will have an opportunity to take the starting center job with Looney (left hamstring) currently injured. Cauley-Stein is worth monitoring in standard-leagues.

  • Kevon Looney
    PF-C, Golden State Warriors

    Head coach Steve Kerr admited that Kevon Looney (left hamstring) could be on the shelf for at least the next four games.

    There have been very few positive reports on Looney since he went down in the Warriors' season opener. Willie Caluey-Stein is making his return tonight, and will be given the opprotunity to threaten Looney's spot in the starting lineup while he is sidelined. He's looking like a drop candidate.

    Barring a late setback, Willie Cauley-Stein is expected to play in Wednesday’s game against the Phoenix Suns.

    This couldn’t come at a better time for a Warriors team desperately searching for answers in the interior. Though no minutes limit has been announced for him, don’t expect him to hit 30 minutes right away. He should still play a good deal tonight and his return makes any of the other Warriors bigs that have been cycling through the starting lineup drop candidates.

    Following yesterday's report, Willie Cauley-Stein (foot) is listed as probable for Wednesday night's game against the Suns.

    The Warriors can't get him back soon enough, with Kevon Looney suffering from an injury and Marquese Chriss looking very much like the player who almost fell out of the league this year. Cauley-Stein will likely be limited in his first game action in more than a month, but he is on the fantasy radar given the dearth of options in Golden State this year. He has upside for much more if he manages to play well with the first unit.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot strain) is listed as probable to make his season debut against the Suns on Wednesday.

    Cauley-Stein has been out with a foot strain since the season began with media day. The big man has some serious upside and is worth a look to see how he meshes with this Warriors roster.

    Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot strain) has been scrimmaging with the Warriors G League affiliate this week and is getting closer to a return to the lineup.

    The Warriors desperately need Cauley-Stein to anchor a depleted frontcourt. With Kevon Looney (hamstring strain) out for an indefinite amount of time with a 'neuropathic condition,' Cauley-Stein is going to get a ton of run. If he is available in your league, now might be the time to stash him.

    Stever Kerr said that Kevon Looney (hamstring strain) will start Thursday's game against the Clippers.

    Looney is going to get a lot of run early with Willie Cauley-Stein out and not much depth up front for this team. There's some upside here for Looney to be a late-round asset at least.
