Insight: He fully expects to play in Game 7. O'Neal is averaging 7.0 ppg on 58.1 percent shooting for the series. With Andrew Bogut (broken rib) out, O'Neal and David Lee have been splitting time at center.

Description: Warriors C/PF Jermaine O'Neal (rest) will miss the last game of the regular season Wednesday against the Nuggets, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely with a fractured rib, so Golden State is going to need to get a lot out of the 35-year-old O'Neal (7.9 ppg, 5.5 rpg) in the postseason.

Description: Warriors C/PF Jermaine O'Neal (knee) will not play Friday against the Lakers, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.

Hot4/2/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Warriors backup C/PF Jermaine O'Neal should get a third consecutive start with center Andrew Bogut sidelined.
Insight: O'Neal (7.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg) has gotten the start at center these past two games averaging 14.0 ppg and 10 rebounds. That's certainly fantasy-worthy production.

Description: Warriors C/PF Jermaine O'Neal is in uniform and will be available in case of an emergency Thursday against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Rusty Simmons, San Francisco Chronicle
Insight: He rested on Tuesday and if Mark Jackson has enough bodies, he'd like to give the 35-year-old O'Neal (7.5 ppg, 5.2 rpg) another breather on Thursday. Andrew Bogut remains a game-time decision with an ankle injury.
 
3/3/2014 5:47:00 PM
Description: Golden State C/PF Jermaine O'Neal will rejoin the team for Tuesday's game at Indiana, according to the Contra Costa Times.

Description: Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal turned in a vintage performance Saturday, scoring 23 points and pulling down 13 boards over 34 minutes of play.
Insight: With Andrew Bogut out with a shoulder injury, O'Neal has played 35.5 mpg his last two games. However, the 35-year-old probably won't be able to keep logging those minutes without breaking down.

Insight: That's going to sideline the veteran indefinitely. Former UConn standout Hilton Armstrong has been called up from the D-League to take O'Neal's roster spot. This isn't going to have a major fantasy impact.

Description: Warriors center Jermaine O'Neal (wrist) is questionable for Wednesday's game, according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Insight: O'Neal is averaging just 18.5 minutes per game this season and doesn't have any fantasy value. Even if Andrew Bogut goes down, the Warriors are unlikely to extend his minutes enough to give him fantasy relevance.
