Gary Payton II News
Golden State Warriors guard Gary Payton II isn't listed on the injury report ahead of Game 4 of the NBA Finals versus the Boston Celtics. He injured his elbow during the Western Conference Semis against the Grizzlies and recently returned for Game 1 of this series, although he has been riding a questionable tag. Still, the defensive specialist didn't play in the opener, and after receiving 25 minutes in Game 2, he got just 11 minutes of action on Wednesday night, with Otto Porter Jr. (foot) and Jordan Poole getting most of the work from off the bench. Head coach Steve Kerr has been known to tweak his rotation. But that doesn't mean Payton should be utilized by DFS participants, especially since his offensive upside is severely limited.
Golden State Warriors guard Gary Payton II (elbow) is questionable for Wednesday's playoff meeting against the Boston Celtics. The 29-year-old has carried the same designation before each contest during the Finals thus far. However, after not seeing the floor in Game 1, Payton got some action on Sunday night and finished with seven points, three rebounds, and three assists throughout 25 minutes. While it's certainly not guaranteed the defensive specialist will receive the same amount of work in Game 3 if he suits up, there's a good chance he will if Andre Iguodala (knee) can't play.
Golden State Warriors guard Gary Payton II (elbow) is available for Game 2 of the NBA Finals against Boston. Payton had a fractured left elbow, an injury he sustained during the series versus the Memphis Grizzlies. He managed to suit up for Game 1 on Thursday, although he didn't get any action. Nonetheless, with Andre Iguodala (knee) back on the shelf, Payton may get some work on Sunday evening, but it still doesn't mean he'll do anything for DFS managers.
Golden State Warriors guard Gary Payton II (elbow) is questionable for Sunday's NBA Finals meeting with the Boston Celtics. After Payton injured his elbow during the series against the Memphis Grizzlies, he was finally healthy enough to suit up on Thursday night for Game 1. However, he didn't play, ceding work to the likes of Andre Iguodala (neck), Otto Porter Jr. (foot), and Jordan Poole. Both Iguodala and Porter are back on the injury report ahead of Game 2. Yet, they are likely to be in uniform, so Payton may be the odd man out again, assuming he is active.
