Warriors' Jacob Evans: Back with NBA team
Evans played the final five seconds of the third quarter of Wednesday's 147-140 win over the Pelicans and accrued no statistics.
It was a two-point game when Evans entered the contest, but he was inserted merely to spare Stephen Curry of a potential foul on the Pelicans' final possession of the quarter. Though the rookie has played in the last two games, the appearances have been in end-of-quarter and garbage-time scenarios, suggesting he's not trending toward earning a permanent rotation spot. In fact, Evans could be in danger of serving as one of the Warriors' healthy inactives Friday against the Clippers with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) scheduled to enter the lineup for his season debut....

Warriors' Damion Lee: Excelling in G League
Lee totaled 20 points (7-15 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal across 28 minutes Wednesday in the G League Santa Cruz Warriors' 116-82 win over the Austin Spurs.
In his third season in the G League, Lee has been a go-to option for Santa Cruz, averaging 19.9 points (on 47.1 percent shooting from the floor), 5.4 boards, 1.6 assists, 1.5 three-pointers and 1.0 steal in 31.7 minutes per game over 14 appearances. As a two-way player, Lee occasionally makes cameos at the NBA level, but all of his action has come exclusively in the G League since Christmas Day.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Marcus Derrickson: Perfect from line for G League club
Derrickson played 23 minutes and tallied 15 points (3-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds and two assists Wednesday in the G League Santa Cruz Warriors' 116-82 win over the Austin Spurs.
Derrickson, an undrafted rookie out of Georgetown, has split time between Santa Cruz and Golden State this season while playing on a two-way contract. The parent club has only called upon him for six appearances, however, and it's unlikely he'll be needed for extended minutes in the near future with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) set to make his season debut Friday against the Clippers. Expect Derrickson to see most of his action with Santa Cruz moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Andre Iguodala: Rare double-digit scoring outing
Iguodala tallied 13 points (5-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds and four assists across 23 minutes Wednesday in the Warriors' 147-140 win over the Pelicans.
Iguodala reached double figures in the scoring column for the first time since his huge 23-point performance in the Christmas Day loss to the Lakers. While the swingman shouldn't be regularly relied upon for much in the way of offensive production, his typically efficient shooting from the field combined with his solid numbers across the board make him a decent depth option in deeper leagues....

Warriors' Kevon Looney: Another 12-rebound game
Looney tallied seven points (3-4 FG, 1-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks across 30 minutes Wednesday in the Warriors' 147-140 win over the Pelicans.
Looney was excellent in both halves of the Warriors' back-to-back set, racking up 16 points, 24 rebounds, seven assists, three blocks and two steals between those contests. While such production would normally send Looney's fantasy stock on the rise, he may struggle to regularly clear 20 minutes moving forward with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) on track to enter the starting five at center in his season debut Friday against the Clippers....

Warriors' Draymond Green: Season-high 14 dimes in win
Green tallied 17 points (6-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 14 assists, six rebounds, one steal, and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 147-140 win over the Pelicans.
Green amassed season highs in assists and made threes, and he has dished out double-digit dimes in three of the last five games. He has also posted six double-doubles through 31 appearances, and this was his best scoring performance since recording a season-high 18 points back on Oct. 26.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Stephen Curry: Scores 41 points Wednesday
Curry contributed 41 points (11-22 FG, 9-17 3Pt, 10-10 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 147-140 win over the Pelicans.
Curry has exceeded 40 points in two of the last three games and three of the last six. It's also the sixth time through 34 appearances that Curry has poured in 40-plus points, and his current scoring average (29.8) isn't far behind his career-best (30.1 points per game back in 2015-16)....

Warriors' Kevin Durant: Posts 30 points, 15 boards in win
Durant delivered 30 points (10-24 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one block in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 147-140 win over the Pelicans.
Durant finished with a season high rebounding total while scoring at least 30 points for the first time since Dec. 23. Durant has recorded 12 double-doubles through 45 appearances this season, and he remains a highly capable contributor in every category.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Draymond Green: Dishes 13 assists in Tuesday's win
Green registered four points (1-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 13 assists, six rebounds, and one steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 win over the Nuggets.
Green rarely looks for his own offense, as evidenced by the fact that he has only seven double-digit scoring performances through 30 appearances this season. However, that doesn't stop him from filling up the stat sheet. He matched his season high in assists, and this is the seventh time Green has handed out at least 10 dimes.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Kevon Looney: Grabs career-high 12 boards in win
Looney produced nine points (3-6 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists, and one block in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 142-111 win over the Nuggets.
Looney collected a career high rebounding total while falling one point shy of a double-double. The 22-year-old big man will hold down the starting gig for Wednesday's matchup with the Pelicans, but with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) scheduled to make his season debut on Friday versus the Clippers, Looney's production seems bound to take a hit going forward....
