News: Green had a team-high 11 rebounds in Saturday's win over the Suns. The under-sized power forward is averaging a career-high eight boards per game.
Impact: Green was coming off a sub-par effort Friday when he had just five rebounds in Friday's loss to the Jazz. At 6-foot-7, Green must tussle with bigger players nightly, but he's held is own at the four. His season averages of 11.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.6 steals have been a nice fantasy boost.
News: Barbosa scored 14 points (7-of-11 FG, 0-of-1 3Pt) in 13 minutes in Saturday's win over the Suns.
Impact: That's two consecutive games with double-digit scoring for Barbosa, who scored 15 points in 13 minutes in Friday's loss to the Jazz. He's been in and out of the rotation this season, but has a hot hand right now -- 13-of-19 the last two games. He's been too inconsistent for head coach Steve Kerr to rely on every game, but he can be a hot hand on any given night.
News: Curry scored 25 points (9-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one block in the win against the Suns on Saturday.
Impact: Curry has been in a mini-slump, failing to shoot above 40 percent from the field in just one of past five games. It hasn't affected him too much overall, as he's cracked the 20-point mark in all but three games in January. Curry is still a lock as a top three fantasy option this season.
News: Thompson scored 22 points (9-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with three rebounds, four assists and two blocks in the win against the Suns on Saturday.
Impact: Thompson failed to make a three pointer in a game for just the third time this season on Friday night, but regained his stoke in Phoenix, shooting 52.9 percent on the night. He's had amazing past month, shooting 53.6 percent in that span, and scoring 30 or more points in five out the last 15 games. He remains locked in a first round talent this season.
