Casspi was all over the place last season, with stints in Minnesota, New Orleans and Sacramento. Between the three teams, he averaged 5.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 17.9 minutes. In joining the Warriors, Casspi provides yet another strong shooter off the bench, which should fit in perfectly with Golden State's offense. Casspi can play both small forward and power forward, but the fact that he'll be a reserve on team with four All-Star players likely means he'll struggle to be a huge contributor in fantasy circles.
Casspi totaled one point (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists and one rebound across 12 minutes during Monday's 110-109 victory over the Trail Blazers.
Since seeing 22 minutes in his Timberwolves debut, Casspi has averaged 2.5 points on 35.7 percent shooting across 13.3 minutes per game and has failed to make a three-pointer. It's possible he's still feeling some lingering discomfort in his right thumb, which he fractured during his team debut with the Pelicans. Regardless, if he sees only around 15 minutes per game moving forward, Casspi can safely be ignored in the vast majority of fantasy formats.
Casspi compiled five points (2-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt) and one rebound across 22 minutes off the bench in a 100-93 loss to the Spurs on Tuesday.
Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau wasted no time in inserting the newly-signed forward into the rotation, as Casspi saw a healthy minutes load behind starters Gorgui Dieng and Andrew Wiggins. However, it was a rough outing for the veteran sharpshooter, who led the team with five turnovers. That won't be the norm for Casspi, whose ability to space the floor should make him a valuable asset off the bench more often than not.
After officially signing with the Timberwolves on Monday, it wasn't certain if Casspi would dress right away in games after having limited time to get settled in with his new team, but it appears that's not much of a concern for coach Tom Thibodeau. Casspi, who hasn't played in a game in nearly a month while recovering from a fractured thumb, is expected to occupy the role that had previously fallen to Nemanja Bjelica (foot), who has been ruled out for the season. Look for Casspi to serve as the top backup to power forward Gorgui Dieng and provide the second unit with some capable outside shooting.
The 28-year-old began the season with the Kings before being shipped to the Pelicans as part of the DeMarcus Cousins deal. He fractured his right thumb in his Pelicans debut, prompting the team to waive him a few days later. With the thumb now fully healed, Casspi will provide valuable floor spacing for a Timberwolves team starved for depth up front. While Casspi may need a couple practices to get familiar with his new team, he should eventually step in as one of the top forwards off the bench after Nemanja Bjelica (foot) was ruled out for the season. Until the team confirms his availability, consider Casspi questionable to play Tuesday against the Spurs.
