Zaza Pachulia

    Zaza Pachulia (shoulder) and Kevon Looney (Jaw) are both probable for Monday’s matchup with the Spurs.

    If Zaza misses time Jordan Bell could be popular in DFS despite dealing with a few dings himself. Looney doesn’t play enough to move the needle for anyone in the frontcourt.

    Zaza Pachulia needed only 23 minutes to post a hearty line against the Lakers in Wednesday’s victory, posting 10 points, 12 rebounds and five assists.

    Well that’s neat. Pachulia took full advantage of the opportunity afforded to him by all the injuries but remains nothing more than a dart throw for fantasy purposes. Congratulations are in order if you somehow had him in lineups tonight.

    Zaza Pachulia came back from the dead on Sunday, shooting 7-for-9 and tormenting the Wolves with 16 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 25 minutes off the bench.

    This will go down as one of the most surprising lines of the year. Zaza simply can’t be on the radar unless your league has 20-plus teams, even after this. He was helped by the fact that JaVale McGee struggled with only two points and a steal in 14 minutes, but that line looks pretty reminiscent of Pachulia’s usual activity. Resist the urge to add Zaza, even if he does go back into the starting five in the future.

  • Jordan Bell

    Jordan Bell played seven minutes in Wednesday’s win against the Wizards, scoring two points with one rebound and one assist.

    This isn’t much to write home about in and of itself but he outplayed Zaza Pachulia (five minutes) while starter JaVale McGee only played 14. He delivered two points, six boards, a steal and two blocks in that time but there’s no real sense that he’s running away with the job. Bell could very well earn that job by the start of the postseason so fantasy owners would be wise to keep him on their watch lists.

    The Warriors have upgraded Jordan Bell to probable for Monday’s game against the Knicks.

    It’s looking increasingly likely that Bell will make his return after spending 15 games on the sidelines. He was coming on strong before the injury despite having his minutes yanked around, though the recent willingness to change the starting center could bode well for his rest-of-season outlook. Zaza Pachulia has been benched in favor of JaVale McGee but Bell might be the most effective of the three and would easily be the best fantasy option. He doesn’t need a ton of playing time to make a difference so he’s still on the deep league radar even if he doesn’t take over the starting job. Bell is one of the better stashes available at the moment and should be picked up in more competitive formats.

    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Jordan Bell is being listed as questionable ahead of Monday’s game against the Knicks.

    Bell is highly unlikely to see much playing time if he gets the green light, as he found himself picking up DNPs even after some excellent runs of play when fully healthy and up to speed. The Dubs have been mixing and matching with JaVale McGee and Zaza Pachulia starting at center of late but it’s Bell who is the only real fantasy option of the bunch. He doesn’t need much playing time to do damage, but unfortunately most fantasy owners will have to wait until next year to see Bell get the sort of playing time that can support fantasy value.

    Draymond Green (shoulder) is probable for Saturday’s game vs. OKC.

    If Green is out, Andre Iguodala, Kevon Looney  and maybe Zaza Pachulia get more run, and only Iggy should even be considered for a low-end stream. Also, Jordan Bell (ankle) and Pat McCaw (wrist) have been ruled out.

  • JaVale McGee

    Steve Kerr said the he will start JaVale McGee again Saturday versus the Thunder.

    McGee played 14 minutes in Thursday’s win over the Clippers and scored six points with four rebounds, while Zaza Pachulia only managed seven minutes off of the bench. The move does not have a major impact in fantasy as neither player is worth owning.

  • JaVale McGee
    C, Golden State Warriors

    Javale McGee will start ahead of Zaza Pachulia against the Clippers on Wednesday night.

    It seems like this is a matchup-driven decision for the Warriors. This big man rotation is situational and not a very high-impact position for fantasy, limited by low minute totals and overall low usage. They can both be ignored in all but very deep leagues.
