The NBA Regular Season has featured intense battles for more than 70 years now and every year is special. In their season opener, the Los Angeles Clippers visit the Golden State Warriors in an intense inter-conference tussle. More about GSW vs LAC Dream11 such as injury report, statistics, and projected fantasy points will be given below.
The Warriors come off a terrific team-oriented victory over the Lakers. Six players scratched more than 12 or more points and the team dominated a star-studded outfit. In terms of player development, Jordan Poole has grown by leaps and the team is looking deeper than last season. If we talk about fantasy value, Curry is slated to be the fantasy leader, while Poole can give a lot for a low credit value. If the first game in any sign then Bjelica and Damion Lee can be “steals” in fantasy lineups.
Call upon PG-13 to give you his all on both ends of the floor. The Los Angeles Clippers are going to miss Kawhi Leonard for months and they will surely call upon PG-13 to rescue their season. Los Angeles returns with a similar core and just acquired Eric Bledsoe for some veteran guard presence. However, there can be some lurking issues with the bench. In terms of fantasy value, Paul George looks like the undisputed leader, while players like Reggie Jackson can give great value for credit score. In the long run, Terance Mann can emerge among the top-three fantasy players for the team.

Stephen Curry is a superstar and legend. He is an option for Star/Pro Player in the Dream11 NBA fantasy lineup.
Paul George can do a lot of things on offense and can act as a top-notch defender.
*stats from Warriors last game, Clippers yet to play*
Paul George (LAC)
PG-13 has an incredible two-way game and pour in points through both drives and shooting. George will be key without Leonard in the fray for the Clippers. Will he get around 20-25 points, 6-8 rebounds, and 5-6 assists on consistent basis?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 40-48
Did Curry have a horrible shooting night in the last game? Yes, he shot 5/21 from the floor. Did he have a horrible game? NO, the guard reeled in a triple-double and did a superb job of get the team going.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 48-65
Reggie Jackson is known for his balanced offensive game and careful shot-selection. He comes into this season after a prolific 2020-21 postseason and will be huge to produce for a team that lacks Leonard.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 27-37
Jordan Poole (GSW)
Jordan Poole has been developing at an incredible rate and is becoming an elite shooter. He had a strong outing in the seaosn opener and if he can do more of the same then Warriors may become a 3-5 seeded team in the West.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 27-35
Terance Mann (LAC)
Terance showed last season that he can develop into a viable role player in the league. Can he notch up a season with averages of 10-15 PPG and 4-6 RPG?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 23-29
Warriors lost their way last season due to a thin frontcourt depth. Nemanja had a double-double in the season opener, can he even sustain 80% of this production? That will be huge for the team.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 26-32
Ivica Zubac (LAC)
Zubac gives decent minutes at the Center position through his inside scoring and rebounding. Will the Center hit new strides or has he already reached his ceiling?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 18-25
Damion Lee (GSW)
If Damion can chip in with 10-15 points regularly then Warriors will have a strong backcourt. That team will be hope he replicate his season opener production at least in three out of five games.
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 20-27
Eric’s production has taken a hit every season and he is a filler player in starting lineups now. Can the guard average around 10 PPG this season?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 14-20
Draymond Green (GSW)
Green can be a strong fantasy option. Although his scoring is receding every year, he remains an effective defender, rebounder, and playmaker
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 28-36
Justise Winslow (LAC)
Winslow was becoming a terrific role player in the league before injuries took a toll upon him. Can he recover his spark this season?
EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 8-14
Marcus Morris (LAC) had a strong 2020-21 NBA season. EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 17-24
Andre Iguodala (GSW) had 12 points in the last game. EXPECTED FANTASY POINTS: 16-22
