Golden State Warriors Roster

Golden State Warriors power forward Draymond Green piled up eight dimes in just 17 minutes during Thursday's loss to the Knicks before being tossed late in the second quarter following his second technical foul. There appeared to be some dispute as to what Green could have said in the direction of the official, as both he and multiple Warriors immediately reacted that Green was responding to a teammate. Nonetheless, he did record a rebound prior to his exit, marking the first time since Dec. 30, 2017, that he went without snatching a board in a contest. He remains a consistent assist option moving forward, but his season-long status in small-to-mid-sized formats is more perilous than it has been in the past few years. He next suits up against Utah on Saturday, who kept him in check offensively in each of last season's two meetings.
Golden State Warriors guard Kelly Oubre Jr. had a solid outing in Wednesday's blowout win over San Antonio. Oubre compiled 16 points, nine rebounds, two triples, two steals, and a block in 31 minutes. The 25-year-old impressively didn't have a single turnover-which helped to mask his poor shooting from the field for managers in category leagues. Oubre started slow but may be picking things up, as he's shot at least 50 percent from the field in two of his past four games while producing sterling defensive numbers. He'll get a Thursday matchup against the Knicks, a tough defensive team so far.
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry scored 26 points with 11 rebounds, seven assists, and four triples in a 121-99 win over the Spurs. Curry had a shaky shooting performance in his last outing against the Lakers but made up for that with Wednesday's 58.8 percent shooting from the field and 50 percent shooting from deep. The star guard has been the NBA's best in the fourth quarter this season, though he wasn't needed down the stretch with the game already in hand. Curry and the Warriors will play host to the Knicks on Thursday, a strong defensive team so far.
Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins (knee) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs. Losing Wiggins would be a shame after he's coming off his best shooting performance of the season. Wiggins is dealing with right knee soreness, so the team might wait to see how he feels pregame. His absence would mean more playing time for Eric Paschall and Kent Bazemore. Paschall would be the better streaming option between the two.
Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry had it all working offensively during Thursday's loss to the Nuggets, dropping a game-high 35 points on 14-for-23 shooting overall, including going 5-for-11 from behind the arc. He notched his third double-double of the year, but first with points/rebounds, as the 11 boards that he grabbed were his most in a regular-season outing since Nov. 19, 2017. Continuing to carry a massive offensive burden on a nightly basis, Curry also dished out four assists and accrued two steals to deliver a huge statistical performance in defeat. He gets to rest up before next taking the floor Monday against the Lakers, a unit that is tied with the Mavericks for the best defensive efficiency in the league (102.3), which may make some DFS managers reluctant to roll the dice on Curry delivering similar production.
