News: Lee said he is 100 percent healthy after undergoing a procedure to repair a torn abdominal muscle in the offseason, the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Impact: This is the same surgery Lee had prior to the 2012-13 season, a year he was named an All-Star. Lee's core didn't begin hurting him until he started his summer training regimen and knew right then he'd need a procedure.

News: Iguodala underwent a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right knee during the offseason, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. "It was nothing too invasive, but I was really able to take some time off," he said. "My rehab team was amazing. They really got me back to where I wanted to be, maybe even a little better."
Impact: Both Iguodala and teammate David Lee were slated to join Team USA's preparation for the FIBA World Cup, but one week before training camp was set to begin in early July, the duo opted to focus on their health rather than risk further injury. During Monday's media day, Iguodala relayed that he's been playing pickup games devoid of pain for a couple of weeks, meaning he'll likely be unhinged as training camp opens.

News: Livingston (toe) was out of his walking boot at the team's media day Monday and hopes to be ready to play opening night, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Livingston is apparently ahead in his recovery from a sprained toe, which required surgery, but it's unclear whether returning for opening night is a realistic possibility. Last week, coach Steve Kerr seemed skeptical about that timetable, stating that he believes Livingston will require a bit more time to regain his strength and conditioning before returning to game action. The Warriors will continue to monitor his progress throughout the preseason, and a more definitive return date will be set as the team's Oct. 29 regular season opener approaches.

News: Livingston (toe) is expected to miss the start of the season, reports.
Impact: Livingston was recently reported to have said he could return at some point during the Warriors' training camp, but coach Steve Kerr isn't quite on board with that statement. Kerr reportedly believes Livingston will have to take the first few weeks of the season off in order to improve his conditioning and strength. Although it's obvious Livingston is trying to be back for the season opener, the Warriors aren't going to rush back arguably their best acquisition of the offseason, after he underwent arthroscopic surgery in August. Look for him to probably come back sometime within the first few weeks of the regular season.

News: Curry will be asked to take on more defensive responsibility this season, CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: New head coach Steve Kerr feels Curry can do more on defense and that it's just never been asked of him. Generally, Curry got the least demanding assignment of the opposing team's smaller players while Klay Thompson defended the more difficult matchups. The downside to giving Curry harder assignments is that it may lead to foul trouble and having the team's best offensive player on the bench.

News: Ezeli (shin) will be the Warriors' primary backup to Andrew Bogut after the team learned Thursday that Jermaine O'Neal would not return, CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: It sounds like O'Neal hasn't made a decision on whether or not to retire, but he's definitely not signing at this point. This means Ezeli, once his shin heals up, will be the Warriors' backup at center.

News: Lee (abdomen) is expected to be ready to participate at the start of training camp, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Lee underwent a minor surgical procedure in June to repair a core muscle in his pelvic area. He will be the starter at power forward for the Warriors this season, according to coach Steve Kerr. Lee resumed working out in the middle of August, giving him over a month of action in his attempt to be in shape for training camp.

News: Ezeli (shin) is expected to be the primary backup to center Andrew Bogut this season, CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Ezeli may not start training camp, but he's expected to get himself ready at some point before the start of the regular season. The Warriors could use more proven depth in the front court, and they are still talking with Jermaine O'Neal, but as the roster stands right now, Ezeli needs to be the backup to Bogut.

News: Bogut is back in the Bay Area and working out with teammates in preparation for the opening of training camp later this month, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. He has recovered from the fractured rib he sustained in April and kept him out of the postseason.
Impact: After meeting with new head coach Steve Kerr this past summer, Bogut is anxious to implement Kerr's plan into action. Kerr wants to utilize Bogut more in the flow of the offense, having the ball go through him at times. "They're expecting a little more from me, and I think we have high-IQ players who know how to play. With our shooters on the perimeter and our bigs with passing abilities, I think we can do really well with the ball movement coach expects in our offense," said Bogut.

News: Livingston (toe) says he's ahead of schedule with his recovery and could return during the Warriors' training camp, CSN Bay Area's Monte Poole reports.
Impact: This would certainly be ideal for the Warriors and for fantasy owners in deeper leagues, as he would presumably be close to ready for the start of the regular season if he were able to take part in the latter stages of camp.

News: Livingston's return date from toe surgery is unclear at this point, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports reports.
Impact: Livingston sprained his big toe back in July, which ended up requiring surgery after it wasn't healing on its own. He was initially given a minimum 6-8 week timetable for return, but it sounds like that would be optimistic at this point.

News: Ezeli (knee, shin) is still not 100 percent healthy after being sidelined by a knee injury for the entire 2013-14 NBA season, the SFGate reports. He's been cleared of the knee injury, but Ezeli suffered inflammation in his shin that prevented him from playing in summer-league games.
Impact: He's confident that he'll return to full participation once training camp begins, showing signs that he will be ready to contribute to the team once the season starts.
