  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Available to play Tuesday

    Payton (Achilles) will be available to play Tuesday against the Pelicans, per C.J. Holmes of the San Francisco Chronicle. Payton was previously considered questionable before this update. He was outstanding in his return to action Sunday versus Minnesota, scoring nine points in just 15 minutes.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Lands on injury report

    Payton is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Pelicans due to right Achilles soreness. Payton, who returned to action Sunday following a month-and-a-half-long absence due to an abdomen injury, now finds himself on the injury report with Achilles soreness. The severity the issue remains unclear, but a late addition to the injury report is never a good sign. If he's ruled out, more minutes will be available for Jonathan Kuminga, Anthony Lamb and Donte DiVincenzo.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Effective in debut

    Payton (abdomen) registered nine points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one block across 15 minutes during Sunday's 99-96 loss to the Timberwolves. Payton made the first appearance of his second stint with the Warriors, as he was a member of last season's title-winning squad before he then signed with Portland in the offseason, only to be traded back to Golden State in February. Before the deal was finalized, Payton was determined to be dealing with an abdominal injury, and after spending the past six weeks rehabbing and recovering, he was finally cleared to play Sunday. Opportunity opened up for Payton after Donte DiVincenzo proved ineffective against the Timberwolves' defense, and his shot was mostly on point in his 15 minutes of court time. Expect the defensive-minded Payton to hold a relatively small, yet consistent role in the Warriors' rotation the rest of the season.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Will make season debut Sunday

    Payton (abdomen) will make his season debut Sunday against the Timberwolves, Chris Haynes of Turner Sports reports. Payton was listed as probable for Sunday's contest, but now he's been upgraded and will be available to make his season debut. Given that he hasn't played in quite a while, he's expected to come off the bench under a strict minute restriction.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Probable Sunday

    Payton (abdomen) is considered probable for Sunday's tilt against the Timberwolves, Madeline Kenney of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Payton went through a light practice Saturday, and his status Sunday will seemingly depend on how he feels closer to tipoff. He has not played for the Warriors since being traded from Portland on Feb. 12. Thus, if he gets the green light, expect him to get eased back into the swing of things.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Returning to practice Saturday

    Payton (abdomen) has intensified his on-court workouts and is expected to participate in Saturday's practice. Payton has not played for Golden State since being traded from Portland on Feb. 12 while rehabilitating his right adductor. After Saturday's practice, his status for Sunday's game versus Minnesota will be determined.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Will be re-evaluated Thursday

    Payton is scheduled to have his abdominal injury re-evaluated Thursday, and there's optimism within the Warriors' organization that he'll be able to return before the regular season concludes, NBA Insider Brett Siegel reports. The Warriors could certainly use Payton's defense, so he'll be a welcome sight once he's able to return, although it's unlikely he'll earn enough minutes to make a major impact in fantasy hoops. He'll likely be eased back into things slowly, so the end of the regular season will be more like a tune-up for him to prepare for postseason play.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Progressing, but return TBA

    The Warriors announced Monday that Payton (abdomen) is making good progress in his recovery and has started on-court activities. He's expected to ramp up his on-court workouts in the next few days. Payton is still recovering from a right adductor injury and hasn't seen any live action since Golden State acquired him from Portland on Feb. 12. He's set for another evaluation in 10 days, and if his workouts continue to go as planned, it's certainly possible the defensive-minded guard could be back in action before the end of the regular season.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Out at least one month

    Warriors general manager Bob Myers said Monday that Payton (abdomen) will be re-evaluated in one month, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. Myers' comments came less that a day after the Warriors agreed to finalize their acquisition of Payton to complete a four-team deal involving the Trail Blazers, Pistons and Hawks. The trade was agreed upon Thursday, but all players involved in the deal had been in limbo through the weekend after Payton failed his physical Friday due to a lingering abdominal injury that Portland allegedly didn't disclose during trade negotiations. While the Warriors ultimately signed off on the deal, they could still recoup some or all of the five future second-round draft picks to Portland in the deal while the NBA begins an inquiry into whether the Trail Blazers failed to disclose relevant medical information regarding Payton. Once the 30-year-old wing is reassessed in mid-March, the Warriors should have a better idea of whether he can play again before the end of the regular season. Even if Payton ultimately can't get cleared by the end of the regular season, Myers expressed optimism that Payton will be ready to go for the postseason.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Officially traded to Golden State

    The Warriors officially acquired Payton (abdomen) on Sunday after finalizing their previously agreed-upon four-team trade with the Trail Blazers, Pistons and Hawks from Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Golden State had previously held up the trade after team doctors raised concerns about Payton's abdominal injury, an issue Portland reportedly didn't disclose during trade discussion prior to the deal being completed. After undergoing core-muscle surgery in the offseason, Payton missed 35 games and didn't debut for Portland until Jan. 2 before he allegedly took the pain-killing medication Toradol in order to numb the pain enough to play through the injury. Though Golden State ultimately signed off on the deal, Payton, who failed his initial physical exam Friday, is still expected to miss up to three months while recovering from the abdominal injury, per Shams Charania of The Athletic. While all the players involved in the four-team deal are now eligible to join their new squads, the NBA could still elect to punish Portland with a fine or a loss of draft picks if their investigation reveals that the medical staff failed to disclose relevant information pertaining to Payton. The 30-year-old guard can be viewed as out indefinitely until Golden State updates his status.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Trade to Golden State in jeopardy

    Payton (core) failed a physical exam Friday, which puts the agreed-upon four-team trade between the Warriors, Trail Blazers, Pistons and Hawks in jeopardy, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. According to the report, the Warriors discovered that Payton is dealing with an injury to his core muscle, which he had surgically repaired over the offseason. Payton's latest core-related setback could sideline him for up to three months, so the Warriors will have to decide whether they are willing to bring the veteran wing aboard with the likelihood he might not be available until late in the postseason. Golden State will have until Saturday to decide whether to go through with the trade or to have it rescinded. If the Warriors choose to rescind the deal, Golden State would get James Wiseman back from Detroit, while Payton would return to Portland and Saddiq Bey and Kevin Knox would return to Detroit.

  • Warriors' Gary Payton: Heading back to Golden State

    Payton was traded from the Trail Blazers to the Warriors on Thursday for five second-round picks and Kevin Knox, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. After winning a title with the Warriors last season, Payton signed a two-year, $17.02 million deal with the Trail Blazers over the summer, which included a $9.13 million player option for 2024-25. Given how much the Warriors have struggled, the organization felt it necessary to bring back the defensive-minded guard. Over the past two seasons, Payton has averaged 6.5 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.0 assists in 17.5 minutes. With Stephen Curry (knee) out through the All-Star break and possibly longer, Payton could see a boosted role in the short term.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Payton: Probable Monday

    Payton (illness) is probable for Monday's game against the Bucks.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Payton: Likely to play

    Payton (illness) is probable for Saturday's game against the Bulls. Payton missed Friday's tilt with a non-COVID illness but is expected to return to the hardwood Saturday. His availability would likely spell fewer minutes for Shaedon Sharpe.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Payton: Downgraded to out

    Payton (illness) has been downgraded to out for Friday's matchup against the Wizards. Payton is under the weather and will miss at least one contest. Given Friday's matchup is the first half of a back-to-back set, it's certainly possible the defensive-minded guard will be sidelined Saturday as well. Shaedon Sharpe is a candidate for increased run while Payton is out.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Payton: Questionable Friday

    Payton is questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards due to a non-COVID illness. Payton has appeared in the last six matchups, but he was a late addition to Friday's injury report due to his illness. Shaedon Sharpe is a candidate to see increased run against Washington if Payton is unavailable.

  • Trail Blazers' Gary Payton: Quiet again in win over Hawks

    Payton closed with four points (2-3 FG), three rebounds, one assist and one steal over 14 minutes during Monday's 129-125 victory over the Hawks. After missing the first two-and-a-half months of the season while working back from injury, Payton has now appeared in 10 of the Blazers' last 11 contests. As was the case during Payton's days with the Warriors, he's a more effective real-life player than fantasy asset, and that's especially true when he's averaging just 16.0 minutes per game. Right now, Payton can be safely ignored in most leagues, though managers in deeper formats could look his way for some steals production (1.1 SPG).
