Golden State Warriors Fantasy Spin

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is still out for Saturday against the Kings. No revenge game for Boogie in his Warriors debut, apparently. The Warriors aren't being very specific on when Cousins is set to return and he does not have a target date, but he's been going through full practices and some pre-game workouts. He should still be stashed in most leagues.

Sacramento Kings Fantasy Spin

Marvin Bagley (knee) is listed as questionable vs. the Warriors on Saturday. This is a step in the right direction after he was called doubtful for the game on Thursday. While he did not play, it sounds like he could be back soon, or of course it's not crazy to think he needs several games off after being ruled out for two weeks back on Dec. 28. If he can't go, it'll be interesting to see if Harry Giles gets PF minutes like he did in the last two games, but he's not much of a pickup. Nemanja Bjelica would also have a longer leash in the first unit.
