The Scoop:A sequence of injuries have derailed Rush over the past few years, and he was recently diagnosed with a stress reaction in his back, so there's no reason to target him as even a long-term fantasy option.
The Scoop:It should be his season debut and the Warriors might use him since they won't be using Draymond Green at all at small forward. Rush still isn't going to get more than minutes in the teens even with the Warriors banged up at some point.
The only thing Steve Kerr lost in his coaching debut was his voice. Stephen Curry had 24 points and 10 rebounds, Klay Thompson scored 19 points and the undermanned Golden State Warriors made Kerr a winner in his first game, shaking off a slow start to roll past the Sacramento Kings 95-77 on Wednesday night in the regular-season opener for both teams. ''I got nothing left.'' The Warriors overcame the first hurdle of Kerr's tenure - besides his wavering voice, that is - with a patchwork lineup that did just enough against their rebuilding Northern California rivals. Golden State played without power forward David Lee (strained left hamstring) and reserve Brandon Rush (lower back spasms).
