    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Scores 13 points off bench Monday

    Rush led the Warriors' bench with 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt) to go with three assists, two rebounds, and one steal across 17 minutes in Monday's 120-90 waxing of the Spurs. Though the Spurs boast the league's second-best record after the Warriors, Golden State absolutely walloped them, resulting in the entire bench getting more minutes than normal. Blowouts have been fairly routine for the Warriors all season, so while Rush figures to see the floor more often than not, he'll see his minutes dwindle in more competitive games. The 13 points Rush provided Monday looks to be his ceiling going forward now that he's stuck in a bench role with a healthy Harrison Barnes reclaiming the starting job at small forward.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Reduced role

    Rush played just one minute in Friday night's win over the Pacers. Since Harrison Barnes returned to the starting lineup, Rush has seen his playing time take a big hit, getting a total of 32 minutes over the past four games. There had been some talk of Rush maintaining a spot in the rotation after Barnes' return from an ankle injury, but it's not playing out like that for him.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Back to second unit

    Rush returned to a reserve role Saturday, going scoreless (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in nine minutes in a 113-95 loss to Detroit. Rush had been the starting small forward since Harrison Barnes went down with an ankle injury. The Warriors were cautious with Barnes since his return to the court, having him come off the bench while Rush started, but Barnes was returned to the starting lineup Saturday. Rush's role/playing time takes a hit as long as the team's starters remain in good health, though the coaching staff has confidence in Rush, who has been moving much better this season than he showed last year.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Will remain starting Monday

    Rush will remain in the starting lineup Monday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports. Interim head coach Luke Walton indicated that Rush is playing so well that he will remain in the starting lineup while Harrison Barnes continues to ease his way back into action. He also said that Barnes would eventually return to the starting rotation. Seeing that this will be Barnes fifth game since returning from injury, his return to the starting lineup will likely be sooner than later.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Manages season-high 20 points in Friday victory

    Rush managed 20 points (8-9 FG, 4-4 3Pt), four rebounds, a block and a steal over 29 minutes in Friday's 128-108 victory over the Trail Blazers. The veteran guard posted a season high in points, while tallying multiple three-pointers for the third straight contest. Rush's solid play allowed the Warriors to continue easing Harrison Barnes back into action, after the latter missed 16 games with an ankle injury. While the 30-year-old's minutes will certainly decline once Barnes returns to his starting role full-time, Rush has proven capable of providing solid production off the bench and supplementing his numbers with his above-average three-point range.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Plays 33 minutes in recovery from hamstring injury

    Rush (hamstring) played 33 minutes Tuesday, scoring eight points (3-8 FG, 2-3 3Pt) with nine rebounds, two assists, and a steal over 33 minutes in a 109-88 drubbing of the Lakers. After missing Saturday's game due to a hamstring injury, and playing just 18 minutes in his return against Charlotte on Monday, Rush nearly reached a new season-high in court time in Tuesday's rout of the Lakers. Rush, whose season-high nine boards should be an anomaly, would need stable playing time and increased three-point output to become fantasy-relevant in most formats.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Starts against Hornets

    Rush (hamstring) will start at small forward Monday against the Hornets, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports. Rush sat out Saturday with a hamstring injury but only needed that one night off to recover. Although, Rush's days in the starting five appear limited since Harrison Barnes (ankle) will be making his long-awaited return to the court Monday off the bench as he eases back into action after a 16-game absence.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Likely to play Monday

    Rush (hamstring) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Hornets, GSWStats reports. Rush is primed to return to action Monday after sitting out the Warriors' previous game Saturday. He regularly started at small forward over the last few weeks, but with Harrison Barnes (ankle) also probable for Monday's game, Rush could be headed back to the bench.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Will not play Saturday

    Rush (hamstring) will not play Saturday against the Nuggets, Rusty Simmons of the San Fransisco Chronicle reports. The Warriors have already ruled out Harrison Barnes (ankle), Leandro Barbosa (shoulder) and James Michael McAdoo (toe) and could very well be without Stephen Curry and Festus Ezeli heading into Saturday's game, so it's unclear who will take over Rush's spot in the lineup. More than likely, a combination of Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala will be forced to soak up big minutes with multiple Warriors unable to play.

    Warriors' Brandon Rush: Scoreless in Friday's win

    Rush went scoreless (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) with three rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes in Friday's win over the Cavaliers. Rush's primary duty was to defend LeBron James, who needed 25 shots to score 26 points, so the Warriors aren't sweating his 0-fer from the field. Rush and a few others did an admirable job defending James. This may have been his last start in place of Harrison Barnes (ankle) who is looking like he'll return for Monday's game against Sacramento.
