News: Bogut had eight points (4-8 FG) and 12 rebounds in 27 minutes in the win over the Warriors 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.
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.
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.
Mon. Dec 2, 2013 | STATS
News: Curry scored a season-high 36 in Sunday's win at Sacramento.
Impact: Curry has 68 points on 27-of-50 shooting over his last two games, going 9 of 18 from 3-point range.
Mon. Dec 2, 2013 | STATS
News: Thompson scored 28 in Sunday's win at Sacramento, setting a career-high with eight 3-pointers on 11 attempts.
Impact: Thompson is shooting a career-best 47.3 percent from beyond the arc this season.
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
News: Lee scored 20 points (7-of-14 FG, 6-of-8 FT) with 12 rebounds and three assists in Wednesday night's loss to the Mavericks.
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.
Impact: Thompson was just 5 of 16 from the floor but seemed to at least compensate slightly with his surprisingly strong effort on the glass.
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.
News: Lee posted his seventh double-double with 20 points and 12 rebounds in Wednesday's loss to Dallas.
Impact: Lee is averaging 11.0 rebounds over his last six games.
News: Curry scored a team-high 29 points (9-of-19 FG, 6-of-10 3Pt, 5-of-5 FT) with eight assists, four rebounds, one steal and six turnovers Wedensday night in a loss to Dallas.
Impact: Since returning from a concussion, Curry is averaging 40.3 minutes over three games, about seven minutes above his season average. The increased playing time is the result of Golden State missing Andre Iguodala (hamstring).
News: Nedovic played 12 minutes Wednesday night, his third straight game in double-digit playing time. He scored four points (1-of-2 FG, 2-of-2 FT) with one assist in a loss to Dallas.
Impact: Nedovic is getting some added run with injuries sidelining Andre Iguodala (hamstring) and Toney Douglas (leg). Those two may be retuning next week, which will impact Nedovic's playing time.
News: Bogut returned to the lineup Wednesday night after serving a one-game suspension. He had eight points and 10 rebounds in 28 minutes in a loss to Dallas.
Impact: The 28 minutes of a run is the fewest in eight games for Bogut, who was forced to take a day off (Tuesday) for starting a melee in Saturday's loss to Portland. He entered Wednesday night's game having averaged 34.6 minutes of playing time in the previous five games.
News: Douglas (leg) is not with the Warriors on the team's current road trip, Cocmast SportsNet Bay Area reports. He missed Tuesday's game in New Orleans and will miss games Wednesday (in Dallas) and Friday (in Oklahoma City).
Impact: The earliest Douglas will return is Dec. 1, an away game in nearby Sacramento. Andre Iguodala (hamstring) is also not with the team, so the backup point guard minutes are being shared by Klay Thompson and Nemanja Nedovic.
News: Thompson scored a team-high 22 points (8-of-18 FG, 3-of-6 3Pt, 3-of-6 FT) and added a season-high eight assists in Tuesday night's win over New Orleans.
Impact: The Warriors are thin at point guard with Andre Iguodala (hamstring) and Toney Douglas (leg) sidelined and not with the team on its current road trip. In a perfect world, Kent Bazemore or rookie first-round draft pick Nemanja Nedovic would fill in as an offensive facilitator, but neither is ready for that role. That leaves Thompson with the ball in his hands more often and an opportunity to create shots for others. There are two more games on the road trip (Wednesday in Dallas and Friday in OKC), so look for increased assists for Thompson, who averages 2.0 assists per game this season.
Ognjen Kuzmic - #1 - Center - 7'1" - 251lbs
News: Kuzmic underwent surgery Monday on his broken right hand and will be out at least six weeks, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Kuzmic sustained the injury last Wednesday during one of his brief appearances. He'll now rehab rather than shuttle between the Warriors and Santa Cruz of the D-League, which the rookie will continue once he fully recovers.
News: Curry's shooting continues to be worse than he and fantasy owners would like, though he had a well-rounded game Tuesday at New Orleans with 16 points, nine assists, eight rebounds and three steals.
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: Nedovic failed to score Tuesday (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt) but added two rebounds and one assist.
Impact: After a dominating performance in the D-League on Monday where he scored a team-high 31 points, Nedovic contributed fairly little in the win over the Pelicans. Nedovic saw only 13 minutes of action, and he will have to prove himself beyond D-League games if he is to have any value for fantasy owners.
News: O'Neal scored 18 points (9-12 FG) and pulled down eight boards in 26 minutes Tuesday.
Impact: O'Neal did not look rusty at all Tuesday after missing four straight games, and the Warriors needed all of his points to pull out the win over the Pelicans. While his rebounding numbers Tuesday weren't too surprising, it's unlikely that O'Neal will produce points like this on a nightly basis, especially when Andrew Bogut returns from suspension.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) has been ruled out by coach Mark Jackson for at least the Warriors' next three games, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: This means the soonest Iggy could return would be Dec. 1 in Sacramento, but that doesn't necessarily mean that game should be considered a target date. It sounds like he could return some time in early December, and until he does, Harrison Barnes should remain a solid play in all formats.
News: O'Neal (groin/hip) will start Tuesday against the Pelicans, barring any setbacks prior to tip-off, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: O'Neal is going to test his knee/groin one more time before tip, but it sounds like he'll play and start with Andrew Bogut suspended. He could be a decent one-game source of blocks and rebounds, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Warriors featured several small lineups in Tuesday's tilt.
News: O'Neal (groin) took part in morning shootaround but remains a game-time call for Tuesday's contest in New Orleans, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
Impact: O'Neal would be a welcome addition to a frontcourt that is without Andrew Bogut due to suspension Tuesday. After four games missed due a right groin strain, a bit of rust from the 35-year-old wouldn't surprise, but a decision on O'Neal's status is unlikely to come until the completion of pregame warmups.
News: Douglas (leg) is listed as "out" for Tuesday night's game against New Orleans, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Impact: With both Douglas and Andre Iguodala (hamstring) out Tuesday, the Warriors will have limited options off the bench behind point guard Stephen Curry. We may see rookie first-round draft pick Nemanja Nedovic get some meaningful minutes.
News: Nedovic could see meaningful minutes in Tuesday night's game against the Pelicans, the San Jose Mercury News reports. The rookie has gotten limited minutes thus far, but his ability to handle the ball could be needed Tuesday night.
Impact: Injuries to Toney Douglas (leg) and Andre Iguodala (hamstring) have created an opening in the rotation for a backup point guard that Kent Bazemore hasn't been able to fill. Nedovic, who played a season-high 13 minutes in Saturday's loss to Portland, is in position to give the Warriors at least that much run Tuesday night. He's coming off a successful one-game stint in the D-League, having scored a team-high 31 points (9-of-12 FG, 4-of-4 3Pt, 9-of-11 FT) for Santa Cruz on Monday. His confidence is building.
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.
News: Green was fined $20,000 for his involvement in a fight in Saturday night's game against Portland, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Impact: Both Green and Andrew Bogut were involved in the altercation. Green got a fine and Bogut received a one-game suspension.
News: Speights may get the start at center Tuesday due to Andrew Bogut's suspension and Jermaine O'Neal's injured knee and groin, InsideBayArea.com reports.
Impact: There is still a chance that Jermaine O'Neal will start at center depending on how he feels after Tuesday's morning shootaround. If O'Neal is not able to go, Speights should have a good opportunity to increase his production in all statistical categories.
News: O'Neal (groin) went through practice Monday, but the Warriors will wait and see how his body feels before deciding whether he'll be available to play Tuesday, the Warriors' official site reports.
Impact: The Warriors are shorthanded due to injuries and Andrew Bogut's suspension that will be served Tuesday. With Bogut out, the team may ask O'Neal to return sooner than would be liked, but that's merely speculation. We should know sometime after Tuesday's morning shootaround if O'Neal will be probable or doubtful for Tuesday's game.
News: Bogut will be suspended for the Warriors' game Tuesday against the Pelicans, The Columbian reports.
Impact: Bogut got involved in a fight that occurred in Saturday's game against the Trail Blazers. He will be forced to sit out Tuesday's contest against the Pelicans.
News: Nedovic has been assigned to Santa Cruz of the D-League, Comcast SportsNet Bay Area reports.
Impact: Nedovic will suit up for Monday night's game against Austin. This is likely a one-game assignment. We suspect Nedovic will be back on Golden State's roster in time for Tuesday night's game against New Orleans.
Nov 24, 2013 | RotoWire
News: Green was ejected from Saturday night's loss to Portland for his role in an altercation. He finished with four points and three rebounds in 15 minutes.
Impact: Because of injuries to Andre Iguodala (hamstring), Toney Douglas (leg) and Jermaine O'Neal (groin/knee), Green has gained a larger share of minutes in the rotation. He averaged 7.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 18.0 minutes in the previous four games.
Nov 24, 2013 | RotoWire
News: O'Neal (groin) missed his fourth straight game Saturday.
Impact: With O'Neal unavailable, the Warriors are using a combination of players to pick up the backup center minutes.
News: Nedovic had five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt) with two rebounds and one assist in 15 minutes of action Saturday against the Trail Blazers.
Impact: Nedovic would have seen even more time if Stephen Curry, who returned from a concussion, couldn't have played. Regardless, with Andre Iguodala (hamstring) out, Nedovic will see an increase in minutes for the foreseeable future.
News: Thompson had 30 points (10-13 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 27 minutes Saturday against the Trail Blazers.
Impact: Thompson was just 6-for-20 on Friday but found his rhythm Saturday. Being the sharpshooter that he is, he wasn't bound to stay cold for very long. He should continue to thrive from beyond the arc and be one of the Warriors' leading scorers.
News: Curry scored 22 points (8-21 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 4-5 FT) with 11 assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 37 minutes of action Saturday against the Trail Blazers.
Impact: Curry returned from a two-game absence due to a concussion and didn't miss a beat, recording a double-double. Expect him to continue to play his full slate of minutes going forward and contribute even more with Andre Iguodala (hamstring) out indefinitely.
News: Curry (concussion) will return from a two-game absence Saturday against Portland.
Impact: Curry missed the two previous games after smacking his head off the floor on Monday. With Andre Iguodala (hamstring) out, Golden State would have been in a spot without Curry. He should play his normal complement of minutes.
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 six points and six assists before limping to the locker room in the third quarter with a left hamstring injury in Friday's loss to the Lakers.
Impact: An MRI is set for Saturday. "This one kind of worries me a little bit. I'll take it serious, I'm sure," he said. "I'm not even walking right now, so we're going to have an MRI (on Saturday)."
News: Curry (concussion) completed a workout Saturday, but requires clearance by the NBA before playing against the Trail Blazers, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: Curry has missed the last two games after suffering the concussion on Monday. If he misses Saturday's game, he should not be out too much longer. Kent Bazemore and/or Nemanja Nedovic would run the point.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) is not expected to require surgery, but a timetable for his return is yet to be established, USA Today reports.
Impact: Iguodala suffered the injury in Friday's loss to the Lakers when he said he felt a "pop" in his hamstring. Avoiding surgery is a major plus, but he's still expected to miss at least a few games to recover. And with Stephen Curry currently dealing with a concussion, Kent Bazemore could be thrust into action.
News: Nedovic is one of a few healthy guards on Golden State's roster heading into Saturday night's game against Portland.
Impact: The rookie first-round pick isn't ready to shoulder a big load -- especially as a point guard -- but he may be pressed into duty with injuries to Stephen Curry (concussion), Andre Iguodala (hamstring) and Toney Douglas (leg).
News: Green played a season-high 27 minutes in Friday night's loss to the Lakers. He scored 12 points (4-of-5 FG, 2-of-3 3Pt, 2-of-2 FT) with four rebounds, two steals and one assist.
Impact: As injuries pile up, the versatile Green becomes a major player in Golden State's rotation. Injured Warriors include Jermaine O'Neal (groin, knee), Toney Douglas (leg), Stephen Curry (concussion), Andre Iguodala (hamstring) and Ognjen Kuzmic (hand). Green can play/defend three positions, making him a necessary commodity entering Saturday night's game against Portland.
News: Bogut scored 12 points (5-of-9 FG) with 13 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one blocked shot in 32 minutes Friday night in a loss to the Lakers.
Impact: That's two straight double-doubles and three in the past four games for Bogut, who is averaging 11 points and 12.7 rebounds during the four-game stretch. Most encouraging is Bogut's playing time. He's averaging 33.4 minutes in his last five games.
Kent Bazemore - #20 - Guard-Forward - 6'5" - 201lbs
News: Bazemore replaced an injured Andre Iguodala (hamstring) in Friday night's loss to the Lakers, ESPN.com reports. He finished with two points (1-of-4 FG, 0-of-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one turnover in eight minutes.
Impact: Iguodala limped off to the locker room in the third quarter, leaving Golden State without an experienced facilitator. The Warriors are in a tough spot at point guard with Stephen Curry (concussion), Toney Douglas (leg) and Iguodala (hamstring) in various states of injury. Bazemore may get the start at point guard Saturday night against Portland.
News: Curry (concussion) still needs to participate in full-contact activity before he can be cleared to play, the San Jose Mercury News reports. Since sustaining his concussion, Curry has participated in three non-contact workouts.
Impact: This could be a sign that Curry is still feeling symptoms from the non-contact work, leaving his status for Saturday's game against Portland in doubt.
News: O'Neal (groin, knee) did not play in Friday night's loss to the Lakers.
Impact: That's three straight games missed for the injured Warrior. At this point, it's doubtful he'll suit up for Saturday's game against Portland.
News: Iguodala (hamstring) is doubtful to play Saturday night against Portland, ESPN.com reports. He suffered a hamstring injury during Friday night's loss to the Lakers and will undergo an MRI on Saturday.
Impact: The injury, coupled with the uncertain status of Stephen Curry (concussion), leaves Golden State short on point guard options. Kent Bazemore replaced Iguodala on Friday and is the presumed starter at point guard, if Curry isn't ready to go.
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.
