In Bell’s last ten fantasy games, he has recorded four games of 0, five others of less than 10 fantasy points, and one whopping 43.2 outing. His variance is significant, that much is obvious. And in being more of an athletic specimen than a skilled player at this stage, Bell is more beholden to luck and team play around him than calling his own shot. More than anything, though, Bell has to answer to the score board. However productive he can be in his minutes, he does not get many unless there are injuries or blowout wins. With this in mind, consider selecting him in light of the aforementioned injuries the Warriors are going in with tonight. He may well start.

In contrast to Bell, Casspi and Looney are already playing and performing fairly regularly, even when the roster is healthy around them. Looney’s slow but steady game now features regularly in the rotation, posting an average of 13 fantasy points over the last ten games, rising to 16.3 if games of -1 and 0.7 are discounted. Casspi, meanwhile, can top that with a 15 fantasy point average over the last ten, rising to a striking 23.2 over the past four.

Set up news alerts about Durant and Green’s injuries, because at least one of this forward trio stands to reap the rewards should they be absent.

PF, 6’9 220lbs, 21 years old, 2 years of experience

Showing some passing vision in an unathletic package, Looney could be in-house replacement for West at some point. He is having far too many hip troubles for one so young, however. And going the entire season without hitting a single mid-range jump shot won’t cut it.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary left, but so cheap that next year he is only going to count as the minimum. Might as well leave him there, then.
