The Warriors have waived Aaron Craft, Jason Kapono, Sean Kilpatrick, James Michael McAdoo and Mitchell Watt.

Most, if not all, of the waived players will wind up in the D-League. They could get called back up if there is an injury during the season. Justin Holiday wound up winning the last roster spot.

Justin Holiday has made the Warriors.

Holiday played in just nine games for the 76ers last season, but he was impressive in the preseason, scoring 18 points in 20 minutes against the Rockets and 12 points in 17 minutes against the Clippers. Holiday could be worth a look in very deep keeper leagues.

Marreese Speights DUI case has been continued to next month, according to court records.

Way to go courts of California! Great job not dealing with the problem so that Speights can be available for the start of the regular season. There may or may not be ramifications here, but we won't know until the issue is actually dealt with by the courts.

Andrew Bogut, who missed the last game with flu-like symptoms, is good to go for Friday's preseason finale against Denver.

It was just an illness, so now that he's better, he can get back onto the court. He probably won't play the entire game as the Warriors are all too familiar with him and he will be their starting center on opening night.

Klay Thompson is "hopeful" about a contract extension, but he's not letting negotiations affect his game.

Thompson was the focus of numerous trade negotiations with regard to the Warrior pursuit of Kevin Love in the offseason. He and the team may have had a slight rift because of it, but Thompson seems to want to stay with the Warriors and will continue to seek an extension.

Coach Steve Kerr says Warriors guard Shaun Livingston (toe) is 'highly doubtful' for the season opener.

Livingston underwent arthroscopic surgery on his big toe in mid-August and was expected to miss up to two months. He still isn't ready to go and thus, will miss next week's season opener against Sacramento. The 29-year-old veteran is expected to backup both shooting guard Klay Thompson and point guard Stephen Curry this year.

Brandon Rush is out indefinitely after an MRI exam revealed a sacral stress reaction.

Rush has been battling a back issue for the past few days, but attempted to play through it. Now he is looking at being out of action for at least the next couple of weeks, but it could end up being even longer. He's slated for a backup role this year and has seen time at both shooting guard and small forward this preseason.

Andre Bogut (illness) will not play on Tuesday.

The solid source of blocks and rebounds is out on Tuesday with a stomach bug. Consider Bogut day-to-day for now, but he should be ready to go for the start of the season.

Steve Kerr said he doesn't imagine Brandon Rush will be ready for the season opener.

Rush is nothing more than a bench player at this point in his career whose main fantasy value comes from his ability to hit the three. Rush likely won't be drafted in standard leagues but you can read more about his projection in the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide.

Festus Ezeli (right knee/elbow) is expected to play on Tuesday.

Good for Ezeli, as this will be the first time he has played in a game in almost a year and a half because of a significant knee injury that led to surgery. However, Ezeli has minimal fantasy value as he averaged a meager 2.8 points, four rebounds, and 0.9 blocks per game in 78 games in 2012-2013.
