Rush was buried on the Warriors bench this season. He averaged 0.9 points, 1.2 rebounds, 0.4 assists, 0.4 blocks, and 0.2 steals in eight minutes per game through 33 games in 2014-15.

At 29-years-old, the seven-year NBA veteran is under team control through 2015-16. With the additions of Shaun Livingston and Leandro Barbosa to the Warriors, and Klay Thompson solidified as a starter, Rush found it hard to crack the roster this season. His shooting efficiency was atrocious at 20 percent from the field, 11 percent from three, and 46 percent from the free-throw line. Barring injury to Thompson, Barbosa, or Livingston, Rush will most likely return to a limited bench role next season.

Rush has officially opted into his contract for the 2015-16 season, Eric Pincus of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Rush played in just 33 games for the Warriors during the 2014-15 season, while also recording a career low of eight minutes per game. With the majority of the Warriors' lineup set to stay intact, Rush will most likely continue to see very limited minutes and thus remain irrelevant in the fantasy sphere barring any injuries higher up in the depth chart.

Rush has yet to make an appearance in the playoffs for the Warriors after three games against the Pelicans.

Rush saw some time off the bench over the course of the regular season but coach Steve Kerr has tightened up his lineup for the playoffs and the 29-year-old veteran is a casualty of that happenstance. Unless things get out of hand one way or another, the former Jayhawk will most likely stay put on the bench.

Rush (illness) is considered questionable to play Monday against the Thunder, Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

Rush came down with an illness Sunday night, and his status for Monday's Western Conference showdown is in jeopardy. The Kansas product has played sparingly off the bench this season and has not logged more than seven minutes in a game in more than a month.

Rush is questionable for Monday's game due to an illness, the San Francisco Chronicle's Rusty Simmons reports.

He has played fewer than 10 minutes in each of his last three appearances, so his absence would not be greatly noticed by the Warriors, and he should be largely unowned in most fantasy leagues.

Rush made his season debut, playing five minutes in Wednesday night's blowout win over the Clippers.

For now, it looks like Rush will be a bit player in the rotation as Leandro Barbosa (13 points, 18 minutes) fills a scoring role off the bench.

Rush (back) was active for the first time this season Sunday, but did not play in the Warriors' win over the Trail Blazers.

Rush suffered a sacral stress reaction during the preseason that has limited his ability. We were unsure of his exact role with the team prior to the injury, but we're not ready to make judgments based on Sunday's DNP. It would appear he and Leandro Barbosa (13 points, 16 minutes) are competing for playing time.
