Draymond Green out, Marquese Chriss probable vs. Kings [UPDATE]

Andrew Wiggins was taken off the injury report later Monday, so he’s expected to play.

UPDATE: Feb. 25, 5:31 p.m. — Green is listed as out, while Chriss is now probable to play vs. the Kings, per the NBA’s 5:30 p.m. injury report. So Green is dealing with pelvic injury and he’s been out for the past few games. Chriss looks on track to return, which is a good sign for the Dubs front court. We’d likely see Kevon Looney head back to the bench in favor of Chriss, with Eric Paschall staying in the starting lineup at PF.

UPDATE: Feb. 24, 8:40 p.m. — Wiggins is off the injury report, so he’s expected to play vs. the Kings. This impacts thing a bit, but really the Dubs are still potentially thin in the front court.

Golden State Warriors F Andrew Wiggins, G/F Draymond Green and PF/C Marquese Chriss are all questionable to play in Tuesday’s game vs. the Sacramento Kings. Green and Chriss were held out of Sunday’s game vs. the Pelicans. Wiggins is new to the injury report with a leg contusion. Green has a pelvic injury, while Chriss has a calf issue.

With Green and Chriss out on Sunday, Eric Paschall and Kevon Looney started in the front court. Paschall had a decent game with 13 points and five rebounds, though Looney only played 19 minutes. Wiggins struggled a lot on Sunday, going 3-16 from the floor with just eight points.

Fantasy basketball and betting analysis

If all three are held out again, Paschall becomes an appealing play. Looney could also start again, but it’s unclear if his minutes are stable enough to trust in DFS. Dragan Bender got some run off the bench, so he’d be a candidate for extra playing time if all three are out. Damion Lee and Jordan Poole would be your go-to scorers with Wiggins sidelined.

We don’t know the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for this game yet, so not much we can anticipate. I will say that the fact that we know all three may miss this game makes it potentially favorable to see what the Kings are favored by heading into tomorrow.
