      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Produces as Barnes fill-in

      Rush started in place of the injured Harrison Barnes (ankle) and scored 16 points (5-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 19 minutes in Saturday night's 120-101 win over Sacramento. Rush put on a third-quarter display, scoring 14 of his 16 points, that blew up Twitter and put some separation between the Warriors and Kings. The seldom-used wing player -- he's been inactive in two recent games -- will get some run with Barnes idle, so now would be a good time to jump on him. He's capable of this kind of production in short minutes.

      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Will start Saturday

      Rush will start Saturday's game against the Kings, Monte Poole of reports. Rush will get the start in place of Harison Barnes, who injured his ankle during Friday's contest against the Suns. The Warriors have been reluctant to disrupt their chemistry from their bench unit, hence Rush's start, however Andre Iguodala will likely see an increase in minutes with Barnes sidelined.

      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Scores eight in first start

      Rush started for the injured Klay Thompson (back) and scored eight points with four rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot in 21 minutes in Saturday night's 107-99 overtime victory over Brooklyn. Rush, who was making his first start of the season, showed off his long-range ability, making two of his four three-point attempts. He'd been a DNP in five of the last six games, but the rust wasn't apparent on his shot. Thompson will get treatment leading up to the Warriors next game Tuesday when the host the Raptors.

      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Will start Saturday

      Rush will start in place of Klay Thompson (stiff back) Saturday against the Nets, Monte Poole of CSNAuthentic reports. The Warriors, focused on maintaining their bench combo of Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston, will have Brandon Rush start the game in place of the injured Klay Thompson, who was a slate scratch for Saturday's game after his back tightened up earlier in the day. It's likely the 30-year-old, who has played in just five of the team's 10 games this season, won't stay out on the court long so he shouldn't be considered a must-add in daily formats.

      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Another DNP Thursday

      Rush did not play for the fourth straight game and fifth time in the last six games Thursday night. We thought with Leandro Barbosa (personal) out of the lineup, Rush would get some run Thursday night, but that wasn't the case.

      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Gathers six rebounds Monday

      Rush only scored two points (0-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) in 13 minutes Monday against the Grizzlies, but he did gather six rebounds and two assists. Rush hasn't been scoring a lot so far this season, but that isn't anything new. His 2.3 PPG he has through four games is higher than his 0.9 PPG he posted all of last year. The six rebounds are a nice touch, though, and 3.0 rebounds per game while averaging a mere 8.0 minutes per game is a decent stat. He'll have trouble seeing a lot of opportunity to build off of this with Andre Iguodala and Leandro Barbosa seeing the court more than he has, though.

      Warriors' Brandon Rush: Starts for Barnes

      Rush started at small forward in place of the injured Harrison Barnes (knee) in Saturday night's preseason game against the Lakers. He had seven points (2-of-7 FG, 0-of-2 3Pt, 3-of-3 FT) in 22 minutes. Rush is the early revelation in camp. He's shooting better than last year, something most observers feel is attributable to better conditioning. Back soreness early last year led to a less-than ideal condition and hampered his shooting stroke. His physique is sleeker this year and Rush appears ready to be more a contributor than he was during the Warriors' championship run when he averaged just 8.2 minutes and shot a career-low 20.4 percent from the field.

      Leandro Barbosa totals 15 points in 15 minutes in preseason action

      Guard Leandro Barbosa led the Warriors with 15 points (7 of 9 field goals, 1 of 1 3-pointers) in 15 minutes in Monday night's preseason opener against Toronto. Barbosa is facing a challenge camp with Ben Gordon (six minutes, zero points) and Brandon Rush (16 minutes, five points) looking for minutes behind Klay Thompson. It would be a role that will provide an element of scoring off the bench.eandro

      Warriors G Brandon Rush in better shape as 2015 camp opens

      Warriors guard Brandon Rush showed up to training camp in better condition than he did last season, CSN Bay Area reports. His conditioning a year ago was related to some back soreness, but he never regained a level of fitness to help Golden State. A Rush with a sleeker physique is more ready to compete for minutes behind Klay Thompson. Leandro Barbosa and Ben Gordon are his biggest challengers to more significant playing time.
