News: Iguodala (hamstring) said he's feeling "pretty good," but did not offer a timetable for his return, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Iguodala, who spoke to the media for the first time since suffering the injury, said he's been running, jumping and shooting, but has not yet done any sharp cutting.
News: O'Neal (wrist) will undergo surgery on his right wrist Friday, the Bay Area News Group reports.
Impact: O'Neal hasn't been productive from a fantasy perspective this season, and this update should keep him in the waiver wires in all formats at this point.
News: Lee scored 15 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in Wednesday night's win over Dallas, marking his third straight double-double.
Impact: Lee had been in a mini-funk previously, with a total of 15 rebounds in the three games prior to his double-double streak.
News: Douglas played four minutes in Wednesday night's win over Dallas.
Impact: Douglas has played in both games since returning from a leg injury, earning just six minutes total. Starting point guard Stephen Curry (76 points, 19 assists, 11 3-pointers) has been otherworldly during that stretch, leaving little opportunity for Douglas at this time.
Hilton Armstrong - #57 - Forward-Center - 6'11" - 235lbs
News: Armstrong made his debut Wednesday night, grabbing three rebounds in seven minutes in a win over Dallas.
Impact: Armstrong was signed from the D-League to provide depth on the front line, while Jermaine O'Neal deals with a wrist injury.
News: Green (ankle) played 28 minutes in Wednesday night's win over Dallas. He scored nine points (4-of-5 FG, 1-of-1 3Pt) with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocked shots in the win.
Impact: Green's availability had been uncertain leading up to game time because of a sprained ankle. He continues to be a modest contributor in multiple categories.
News: O'Neal is scheduled to have arthroscopic surgery on his right wrist Friday.
Impact: The team said a timetable for O'Neal's return will be announced following the procedure, which threatens to end his season - and possibly his career. O'Neal is in his 18th NBA season and has had previous surgeries on both knees and his left wrist.
News: Curry made the go-ahead jumper with 3 seconds left and finished with 33 points in Wednesday's 95-93 win over Dallas.
Impact: Curry shot 13 of 25, including 6 of 11 from 3-point range. While he added nine assists, Curry committed eight turnovers, too. Curry is averaging an NBA-high 4.1 turnovers per game.
News: Bogut pulled down a season-high 18 rebounds in Wednesday's thrilling 95-93 win over Dallas.
Impact: While he won't be much help offensively, Bogut is averaging 11.1 boards over the last 13 games.
News: Bogut scored just six points (3-5 FG) but grabbed 18 rebounds in 35 minutes against Dallas on Wednesday night.
Impact: It's still rare to see a guy play this many minutes and average more rebounds than points, but Bogut has taken that duty to heart. That's now three games in a row with double-digit rebounds with single-digit points. He's a great guy to have on this team but a questionable fantasy option.
News: Curry hit the game-winner in addition to scoring 33 points (13-25 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), while dishing out 10 assists in 44 minutes, against Dallas on Wednesday night.
Impact: Curry was his usual self down the stretch, bringing Golden State from behind to beat Dallas. He found Draymond Green for a go-ahead three in the final minute, before hitting the game-winning jumper with one second to go. He's a Top-10 fantasy player and probably the most explosive scorer in the game outside of Kevin Durant.
News: Green (ankle) will be available Wednesday against the Mavericks, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Green missed practiced Tuesday after suffering a sprained ankle during Monday's game, but it appears he's recovered to the point that he feels comfortable suiting up.
News: O'Neal (wrist) will not play Wednesday against the Mavs, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: O'Neal is dealing with a ligament tear in his wrist but has stated he plans to play through the pain when able. Apparently Wednesday is not one of those nights, and the veteran will take a seat for the first time since Nov. 23.
News: Green (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's tilt against the Mavs, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Green initially suffered a sprained ankle in Monday's loss to the Bobcats. Check back before tip-off to ensure he's in the lineup.
Hilton Armstrong - #57 - Forward-Center - 6'11" - 235lbs
News: The Warriors will add Armstrong from the D-League, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Armstrong hasn't played at the NBA level since 2010. It's unlikely that he'll see significant minutes for the Warriors.
News: Green (ankle) did not participate in Tuesday's practice, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Impact: Green, who sprained his left ankle Monday night, has not been ruled out for Wednesday night's game against Dallas.
News: O'Neal (wrist) didn't practice Tuesday and is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Mavericks.
Impact: Knowledge of the ligament tear in his left wrist is unlikely to stop O'Neal from attempting to suit up and contribute nightly. Until he misses time as a result of the ailment, consider his questionable designation nothing to worry about. As for his expected production, since starting for the suspended Andrew Bogut on Nov. 26, he's averaged 5.9 points (on 51.7 percent shooting) and five rebounds in 17.7 minutes.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) will likely miss another two-to-four weeks, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Doctors gave Iguodala a timetable of four-to-six weeks two weeks ago, so he still has a few weeks to go before he should be expected to return. Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green will absorb most of the minutes left in his absence.
News: Speights played one minute in Monday night's loss to Charlotte. It was the fourth time in seven games that Speights didn't crack the double-digit mark in minutes.
Impact: On a night when both Andrew Bogut and Jermaine O'Neal were in foul trouble, coach Mark Jackson could take only one of minute of Speights, who finished at minus-5 during his time on the court.
News: Douglas returned to action Monday night, after missing 14 games with a stress reaction in his left tibia, the San Jose Mercury News reports. He played two minutes and scored three points in a loss to Charlotte.
Impact: Douglas got into the game in the first half and then never played again. He said after the game he was fine to return, but coach Mark Jackson didn't call upon him.
News: Green (ankle) is questionable to play Wednesday night against Dallas, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Green sustained a sprained ankle during Monday night's loss to Charlotte. X-rays were negative, but the sprain is considered a moderate one.
News: Green sprained his ankle in Monday's loss to the Bobcats, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Green is getting an MRI, and the severity of his injury is not known at this point. He has been solid off the bench for the Warriors but shouldn't be owned in most leagues, as he is limited from a fantasy perspective.
News: Lee posted a double-double Monday against the Bobcats, as he scored 14 points (5-14 FG, 4-4 FT) to go along with 16 rebounds and two assists.
Impact: Lee was basically an automatic double-double last season, when he averaged 18.5 points and 11.2 rebounds, but has gone through some struggles so far this season, dropping to 16.9 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. One reason for the decreased scoring is his 48.5 field goal percentage, which is a modest drop from last season's 51.9 percent. There is still plenty of time for Lee to turn things around, but it's possible he might see a decrease in production compared to last season.
News: Curry exploded Monday against the Bobcats, scoring 43 points (14-32 FG, 5-16 3Pt, 10-12 FT) to go along with nine assists, six rebounds and two blocks.
Impact: Curry is a major offensive weapon for owners, as not only does he put up impressive point totals, but he makes a ton of three-pointers. Although he only went 5-for-16 from behind the arc Monday, the fact he was able to take 16 shots from deep is an impressive feat. It also marked the fifth game this season in which he has attempted at least 10 three-pointers in a game. Curry will continue to be an elite fantasy option, as long as his ankles hold up.
News: Douglas (leg) will be available Monday against the Bobcats. This is updating a previous report that he was ruled out.
Impact: The Warriors apparently feel that Douglas will be ready to go Monday. With the Warriors' depth at the guard positions, Douglas isn't likely to pave out much fantasy value, other than in the deepest of leagues.
News: Douglas (leg) has been ruled out for Monday night's game in Charlotte, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Douglas was hopeful to get back on the court during Golden State's three-game road trip, but now the earliest he'll return is Wednesday night at home against Dallas.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) is listed as out for Monday's game at Charlotte, the Charlotte Observer reports.
Impact: Iguodala last took the court on Nov. 22 but is traveling with the Warriors on their current road trip, which concludes Monday. He has fit in workouts, including jumpers, prior to recent games, but it's unknown if he'll make a return when the team returns to Oakland for a home tilt against the Mavericks on Wednesday.
News: Curry set a franchise record Saturday night when he became the Warriors' all-time leader with 701 three-pointers made, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Curry passed Jason Richardson when he drilled two three-pointers in Saturday's win over Memphis.
News: Douglas (leg) worked out on the court prior to Saturday's game in Memphis but did not play, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Douglas is getting close to a return and is being listed as day-to-day by Golden State.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) worked out on the court prior to Saturday's game in Memphis, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Iguodala is with the team on its road trip, but is not expected to play.
Sun. Dec 8, 2013 | STATS
News: Thompson scored 30 points and helped the Golden State Warriors defeat the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies 108-82 on Saturday night.
Impact: Thompson, averaging 20.9 points, was held to a season-low five in a loss at Houston on Friday.
News: Bogut had eight points (4-8 FG) and 12 rebounds in 27 minutes in the win over the Grizzlies on Saturday. He added two blocks.
Impact: Bogut is not playing a huge amount of minutes (just 23.5 in four December games), which limits his value. It is probably wise for the Warriors to limit his playing time due to his extensive injury history. Bogut has not attempted a free throw in the last three games.
News: Curry had 22 points (7-16 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and a season-high 15 assists in the win over the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Impact: Curry has only hit 3-of-12 on 3-pointers in his last two games, but he has been able to produce back-to-back 22-point games in spite of his long range struggles. He has scored at least 22 points in six straight game, and has attempted 28 free throws in his last three games (and made 25).
News: Thompson had 30 points (12-19 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with five assists and two steals in the win over Memphis on Saturday.
Impact: Thompson was coming off one of his worst games of the season (five points on 2-of-10 from the field in the loss to Houston on Friday). The former Washington State Cougar has hit at least two 3-pointers in all but three games. This was his fourth 30-point game.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) was seen taking jumpers before Friday's game against the Rockets, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: This is a great sign for fantasy owners that have held onto Iguodala during his injury stint. Although, he will most likely be eased back into the lineup when he is healthy enough to return. Iguodala has averaged 12.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals on the year.
Kent Bazemore - #20 - Guard-Forward - 6'5" - 201lbs
News: Bazemore scored 12 points (4-of-6 FG, 1-of-3 3Pt, 3-of-4 FT) with three rebounds, one assist and one steal in a season-high 17 minutes in Friday night's loss to Houston.
Impact: The Warriors have shown little faith in Bazemore, even while the backcourt has been hit hard by injuries. With the starters offering little resistance to the Rockets, Bazemore got more minutes than usual. He had three DNPs in the previous four games and averages just 7.5 minutes in 15 games played.
News: Speights scored nine points and had seven rebounds in a season-high 21 minutes in Friday night's loss to the Rockets.
Impact: The Warriors were blown out early and the starters had a lot to do with that. So, head coach Mark Jackson generously handed out minutes to the reserves. Speights has not been a reliable contributor and had entered Friday's game averaging 7.3 minutes in the previous four games.
News: Douglas (leg) participated in the morning shootaround Friday, but did not play in that evening's game in Houston, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Douglas has been lobbying to return to action, but head coach Mark Jackson wants "to make sure that he's 100 percent" because he wants to avoid any setbacks. At any rate, Douglas is now a day-to-day proposition.
Sat. Dec 7, 2013 | STATS
News: Thompson was held to a season-low five points on 2-of-10 shooting in Friday's loss at Houston.
Impact: Thompson has been inefficient over his last five games, shooting 35.7 percent from the field, though strangely he's hit 42.2 percent of his looks from 3-point range during that stretch.
Sat. Dec 7, 2013 | STATS
News: Curry had 22 points but was just 5 of 14 from the field with eight turnovers in Friday's loss at Houston.
Impact: Curry, who had been 44 of 84 (52.4 percent) including 18 for 35 from 3-point range over his last four games, hit just one 3-pointer on five attempts.
News: Thompson went ice cold from the field Friday against the Rockets, going just 2-for-10 from the field for five points in 35 minutes of action.
Impact: Thompson had been on fire coming into Friday's game, and owners shouldn't worry about his recent performance, as sharpshooters can lose their touch occasionally. Thompson has been averaging 21.t points and 3.6 three-pointers made this season and should continue to be owned in all leagues.
News: Lee struggled in Friday's loss to the Rockets, putting up just 11 points and three rebounds in 22 minutes of action.
Impact: Rockets big men Dwight Howard and Terence Jones had their way against Lee, who was limited in effectiveness Friday. Lee has been consistent this season and owners shouldn't be worried about Friday's poor performance moving forward.
News: Barnes stuffed the stats sheet Friday against the Rockets, putting up 14 points, seven rebounds, two assists, four steals, and one block in 36 minutes of action.
Impact: Barnes is averaging 13.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.0 steals per game this season and should continue to play well for the Warriors. His ability to contribute in multiple categories makes him an asset in standard leagues.
News: O'Neal (wrist) logged 17 minutes Friday against the Rockets. He finished with five points and five rebounds.
Impact: O'Neal has averaged just 6.8 points and 4.6 rebounds this season and shouldn't be an option in all but the deepest of leagues.
News: Curry went cold from the field Friday against the Rockets, putting up 22 points (5-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 11-11 FT) to go with one rebound, five assists, and three steals in 32 minutes of action.
Impact: Curry had been heading into Friday's performance on fire, and it appears he cooled off with a slow 5-for-14 performance. Still, look for Curry to continue to play well, as the star guard has been playing excellently all year long.
News: Douglas (leg) will continue to sit Friday against the Rockets.
Impact: Douglas' return could come soon, as he was a game-time decision Friday. However, he is unlikely to contribute from a fantasy perspective while the Warriors have a healthy roster.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) traveled with the team on its three-game road trip that begins Friday in Houston, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Iguodala still hasn't been able to practice, but his presence on the trip is an encouraging sign.
News: Douglas (leg) traveled with the team on its three-game road trip that begins in Houston on Friday, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: Douglas was able to practice Thursday, but we don't know when he'll return to game action.
Thu. Dec 5, 2013 | RotoWire
News: Douglas (leg) is expected to travel with the team on the upcoming three-game road trip, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: It is not clear yet whether or not Douglas will play at all, but the fact that he is traveling is a good sign. He was also able to practice with the team Thursday.
Thu. Dec 5, 2013 | RotoWire
News: O'Neal, who acknowledged a ligament tear in his left wrist, initially tore cartilage in the wrist back in 2010, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports. He eventually underwent surgery in March 2012, at which time doctors diagnosed it as a "degenerative" condition that would affect the rest of his career.
Impact: O'Neal mentioned the sore wrist in the days before he returned from a recent knee/groin injury, but it generated little buzz at the time. In the five games since he mentioned the sore wrist, he's averaging 22 minutes and has been effective. The 18-year veteran plans to put off surgery until after the season. At this point, it's simply a matter of pain tolerance.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) is not expected to return until next week at the earliest, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Impact: Iguodala has missed six games due to a hamstring injury suffered Nov. 22 against the Lakers.
News: O'Neal said he has a torn ligament in his left wrist that will require surgery, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. The backup center is going to try to delay the procedure for as long as possible.
Impact: There's no word as to when O'Neal was first diagnosed with the torn ligament, or how long he can realistically put off the surgery. The veteran big man has averaged 22 minutes (9.6 PPG, 6.2 RPG) in the past five games and is coming off an 11-point/eight-rebound outing in 23 minutes in Tuesday night's win over the Raptors. He's managed to be productive despite the injury.
News: Speights scored two points with one rebound in six minutes off the bench in Tuesday night's win over Toronto. It was the third time in the past four games he's played under 10 minutes.
Impact: Speights was viewed as the replacement for Carl Landry when he signed a three-year deal in the offseason, but he hasn't come close to fulfilling those expectations. He's averaging just 11.3 minutes per game and shooting 31.8 percent -- fifteen percentage points lower than his career field-goal percentage.
Nemanja Nedovic - #8 - Guard - 6'3" - 192lbs
News: Nedovic had one turnover in five minutes Tuesday.
Impact: Nedovic tweaked his ankle in pre-game warmups Tuesday, but the injury didn't appear to be serious. He only averages seven minutes per game even when he is healthy, so his lack of production Tuesday isn't anything out of the ordinary.
News: Barnes scored 19 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT) to go with three rebounds, two assists and two steals in 31 minutes Tuesday.
Impact: Over the Warriors' last 11 games, Barnes has only failed to reach double-digit points once. In addition to his consistent scoring production, he is usually good for three rebounds and two assists per night, which adds to his value.
News: Curry scored 27 points (8-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 8-10 FT) to go with three rebounds, 10 assists, one block and five steals in Tuesday's win over the Raptors.
Impact: Curry now has back-to-back games with 10 assists, and he has recorded at least three three-pointers in each of his last four games. He should be utilized in all leagues.
News: Thompson scored 22 points (8-20 FG, 6-12 3Pt) to go with three rebounds, seven assists and one steal in 41 minutes Tuesday.
Impact: Thompson continues to contribute in nearly every stat category, and his three-point shooting continues to be impressive almost every night he steps on the court. Continue to roll with the hot hand of Thompson.
Nemanja Nedovic - #8 - Guard - 6'3" - 192lbs
News: Nedovic tweaked an ankle in pre-game warmups Tuesday, but coach Mark Jackson says he is probable for the contest against the Raptors, NBA.com reports.
Impact: He isn't much of a fantasy option, so this isn't big news, and he should once again see 8-to-12 minutes off the bench.
News: Green has been the best and most consistent player off the Golden State bench thus far this season, the San Jose Mercury News reports. The Warriors have been hit hard by the injury bug, which has negatively impacted the production of the second unit.
Impact: Green, who had a couple of big buckets late in Sunday's win over Sacramento, put in a lot of effort in the offseason to improve his shot. After making just 32.7 percent from the field (20.9 percent from three-point range) in his rookie season, he's shooting 46.5 percent overall and 38.9 percent (14-of-36) from long distance through 18 games in 2013-14. As injured players -- Andre Iguodala (hamstring) and Toney Douglas (leg) -- return, there may not be as many looks for Green, but he isn't the shooting liability we saw in his rookie season.
Mon. Dec 2, 2013 | RotoWire
News: Iguodala (hamstring) was seen shooting post-practice free throws on Monday, The San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Although Iguodala is out for the Warriors' game on Tuesday, it sounds like he could be back sometime early this month. Shooting post-practice free throws isn't a huge step in the recovery process but it is encouraging and shows Iguodala is heading in the right direction as far as his rehab goes.
Mon. Dec 2, 2013 | RotoWire
News: Douglas (leg) will miss the Warriors' game on Tuesday against the Raptors according to coach Mark Jackson, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Douglas was seen shooting post-practice free throws on Monday and there was a chance he could have returned on Tuesday but he is officially out now. There will be a decision soon to see if Douglas will travel with the team on their three-game road trip that starts on Friday.

Dec 1, 2013 | RotoWire
News: Thompson hit a career-high eight three-pointers Sunday en route to 28 points (10-19 FG, 8-11 3Pt) against the Kings.
Impact: Thompson also chipped in two rebounds, two assists and three steals. His shooting prowess has become the stuff of legend, and there may not be a more valuable source of three-point shooting in all of fantasy hoops.
Sat. Nov 30, 2013 | STATS
News: Curry was sensational yet again in Friday's stunning 113-112 OT loss to the Thunder.
Impact: Curry had 32 points, hitting four 3-pointers, to lead the Warriors. He may be the best fantasy shooter in history.
Sat. Nov 30, 2013 | STATS
News: Barnes was unstoppable with a career-high 26 points in Friday's stunning 113-112 OT loss to the Thunder.
Impact: Barnes is back in the starting lineup and should be back in your fantasy lineup if he isn't already.
News: Bogut had a solid line Friday against the Thunder, posting 14 points, eight rebounds, and four blocks in 31 minutes of action.
Impact: Bogut is averaging 7.2 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks this season and should continue to be owned in all standard leagues. He produces well as long as he remains healthy.
News: Curry posted 32 points, 11 rebounds, five assists, and four three-pointers in 45 minutes of action Friday against the Thunder.
Impact: Curry has now hit 10 three-pointers over his last two contests as he continues on with his great season. He should be deployed in all leagues.
News: Barnes lit up the Thunder with 26 points (10-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) to go with two rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 42 minutes of action Friday.
Impact: Barnes is coming into his own, Averaging 16.4 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers made over his last five games. It appears the sophomore is finally living up to his draft value.
Thu. Nov 28, 2013 | RotoWire

Impact: This was Lee's fourth double-double in the previous a six games, a stretch in which he averages 17.8 points and 11 rebounds per game.
News: Thompson had his first-ever double double with 20 points and a career-high 10 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to Dallas.

News: Curry bounced back from a couple of rough shooting nights to score 29 on 9-of-19 shooting in Wednesday's loss to Dallas.
Impact: Curry was 6 of 10 from 3-point range after going 4 of 14 over his previous two contests.

Impact: Curry is shooting just 37.8 percent from the field over his last five games, including 35.3 percent from 3-point range.
News: Thompson scored 22 and tied a career high with eight assists in Tuesday's win at New Orleans.
Impact: Thompson has always been a solid scorer, but his improvement to become one of the league's top scorers continues to be a pleasant surprise. His 21.1 points per game slotted him ninth among Western Conference players after Tuesday's games.
News: Bogut received a one-game suspension for his role in Saturday's scuffle against Portland.
Impact: Bogut will return Wednesday against Dallas. He is tied with David Lee for the team lead with 9.4 rebounds per contest.
Ognjen Kuzmic - #1 - Center - 7'1" - 251lbs
News: Kuzmic has a fractured hand for the Warriors.
Impact: The Warriors have not announced the extent of Kuzmic's injury but it sounds ominous.
News: Iguodala had a target date in mind to return from a right hamstring injury. The Golden State Warriors had a different one. Iguodala said Thursday that the sides are ''in the same chapter. Not on the same page.'' He says he hopes to come back ''really soon'' but will leave the decision up to team trainers.
Impact: Iguodala says he's shooting the ball well and jumping high, but he hasn't tried to change directions or stop and start again - the true tests of whether he can come back.
News: Making his second straight start in place of Stephen Curry, Barnes finished with a season-high 20 points of 9-of-13 shooting in a 103-95 loss to the Lakers on Friday.
Impact: Barnes is starting to find his rhythm, averaging 17.7 points on 59.5 percent shooting - including 6 of 8 from 3-point range - in his last three games.
