Warriors' Draymond Green tallies career-high six steals Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) Warriors small forward Draymond Green racked up a career-high six steals in his team's 110-97 win over the Timberwolves Saturday.
It was an interesting all-around night for Green, who scored just four points on 2 of 5 shooting but added eight rebounds, six assists and four blocks to his six steals in 32 minutes of action. According to the team, Green is the first player in franchise history to deliver at least five rebounds, five assists, five steals and four blocks in the same game. His next opportunity to rack up stats will come Tuesday against the 76ers.
Warriors not happy with Pelicans' Cunningham's 'cheap shots'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) The Warriors will submit videotape to the NBA on what they call were "cheap shots" by Pelicans forward Dante Cunningham during Sunday's game, according to the Contra Costa Times.
Harrison Barnes and Draymond Green were struck in the face during separate second-quarter incidents. Barnes suffered a nasal fracture, chipped teeth and a mouth laceration that required stitches, while Green suffered a bloody nose as a result of a elbow/forearm hit from Cunningham.
Both forwards returned to the game Sunday, but Barnes is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game at Memphis. Coach Steve Kerr expects Barnes to wear a protective mask.
"Some people would call it physical, but that’s not physical. That’s cheap," Green said. "He didn’t put neither one of us out of the game, so you’ve got to come a little harder next time if you’re going to try to throw a cheap shot. If you’re going to do it, do it."
Kerr also called Cunningham's actions as "cheap shots" and added Cunningham made no attempt to get the ball in striking Green.
"I didn’t think either play was warranted, let’s put it that way," Kerr said.
Short schedule impacts Klay Thompson, Draymond Green's short-term value
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
|(12/15/14) With every team but one playing either three or four times in Week 8 (Dec. 15-21), the schedule isn't going to dictate how you set your lineup too much. However, the Warriors' two-game schedule should lead Fantasy owners to avoid some of Golden State's biggest contributors, a shame, given how well they have played, overall.
Guard Klay Thompson and forward Draymond Green have both emerged as must-start Fantasy options in category-based leagues. Both players have thrived in Steve Kerr's revamped offense, posting improved numbers across the board. However, with just two games on the schedule for Week 8, including tough matchups against the Grizzlies and Thunder, you are probably best served steering clear.
Moving forward, Thompson should be a no-doubt starting option in all formats, but Green's value is a bit cloudier. David Lee is going to return at some point, and though Green is almost certainly going to remain in the starting lineup, there's still some questions about how much Lee will cut into his role. Selling high on Green might not be a bad idea at this point in the season.
Warriors' Draymond Green scores team-high 31 Saturday vs. Bulls
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(12/6/14) Warriors forward Draymond Green scored a team-high 31 points on 11 of 20 shooting including 7 of 13 from 3-point range in a 112-102 win over the Bulls Saturday.
The 31 points were a career high for Green, along with seven 3-pointers. He also added seven rebounds, three assists and four steals.
The Warriors next play Monday at Minnesota.
Draymond Green (thumb) will be available to play Thursday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/4/14) Warriors forward Draymond Green (thumb) will be available to play Thursday against the Pelicans, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Green suffered a right thumb sprain Tuesday against the Magic, but he was able to finish out the game.
|Considering Draymond Green a Rotisserie sleeper would not be a stretch this season. He averaged 10.2 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 1.4 blocks per 36 minutes last season, but a glut at forward relegated him to just 22 minutes per game with Golden State. His defense and versatility will likely force Steve Kerr to give him a bigger role, but it would still take a trade or injury of Andre Iguodala, Harrison Barnes or David Lee to make him more than a low-end flier. Still, he easily has more upside than anyone else on the Warriors bench, so while you shouldn't draft him just yet, his upside is worth monitoring should circumstances with the Warriors' depth chart change.
