Stephen Curry was arguably over-utilized in Monday's loss to the Bobcats, scoring a season-high 43 points on 14-of-32 shooting (5-of-16 3PTs, 10-of-12 FTs) with six rebounds, nine assists and two blocks in 46 minutes.
The Warriors struggle anytime they play smaller, quick defensive guards and Andre Iguodala isn't around to fill the old Jarrett Jack role and ease the burden on Curry. Owners aren't going to complain about the spike in missed field goals when he's putting these types of numbers up all while only turning the ball over four times. David Lee went for 14 and 16 with no steals or blocks and Harrison Barnes scored 14 points with nine boards and two steals. Klay Thompson scored 22 points.

Stephen Curry handed out a season-high 15 assists against the Grizzlies on Saturday during a 108-82 victory, adding 22 points six boards, one block and two 3-pointers.
He isn't known for his passing, but Curry has three double-doubles in his last four games. The reigning 3-point champ does have 11 triples in that span, so his bread and butter hasn't disappeared or anything. The Warriors won all three of those double-double games and they'll look to keep rolling against the Bobcats on Monday. Curry's fantasy owners should probably expect his assists to drop once Andre Iguodala comes back, but he'll obviously produce elite stats no matter what his role is.

Stephen Curry had 27 points, three rebounds, 10 assists, five steals, a block, three 3-pointers and just three turnovers as the Warriors pulled off the comeback win over the season over the Raptors on Tuesday night.
This game appeared to be over at halftime but the Warriors went on a 64-28 run three minutes into the third quarter to pull off the shocking 112-103 win. They won the fourth quarter 42-15 and hit 8-of-11 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, and Curry was driving the train on every possession. It only counted as one win, but this was their biggest comeback win in 10 years and was an amazing thing to watch. This also marks the first time in his career that Curry has gone for 25 & 10 in back-to-back games, although we're guessing this won't be the last time it happens. If you've been looking for a good excuse to buy the NBA League Pass, the Warriors are a good place to start.

Stephen Curry lit up the Kings on Sunday for 36 points on 14-of-24 shooting, with five 3-pointers, 10 assists, three steals and one block.
This was Curry's first 30 & 10 game since his rookie season in 2009-10, but he's currently blowing away his previous career-high with 8.6 dimes per game. Add in 21.3 points, 3.3 triples, 3.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals and excellent percentages, and it's easy to see why Curry is a top-five option in eight-cat leagues. His turnovers (he had seven tonight) knock him down a few spots in nine-cat.

Stephen Curry grabbed a season-high 11 rebounds against the Thunder during a 113-112 loss at Oklahoma City on Friday, scoring 32 points with five assists and four 3-pointers on 13-of-26 shooting.
It's his fourth point-board double-double of his career. To the surprise of nobody, Curry has come out with his guns blazing since returning from a concussion, averaging 24.8 points, 6.5 boards, 8.3 assists, 1.3 steals and 3.5 triples in 41.5 minutes over four games. That's pretty good.

Stephen Curry turned the ball over six times in Wednesday's 103-99 loss to the Mavericks, scoring 29 points with four boards, eight assists, one steal and six 3-pointers.
Turnovers were the name of the game in this loss with Golden State's 19 turnovers turning into 30 points for the Mavericks. Curry has been turning the ball over much more this season and is on pace for a career-high average, but scoring 20 per night with a few triples will ease fantasy owners' concerns.

Stephen Curry filled the stat sheet in Tuesday's thrilling 102-101 victory at New Orleans, scoring 16 points with eight boards, nine assists, three steals, one block and two 3-points in 42 minutes.
He had 11 assists in Saturday's game with Andre Iguodala out and will continue to be more of a passer. He only attempted five attempts from 3-point range, which is a shade below his 7.5 per game average on the season. Obviously, Curry will get his and is one of the toughest players to guard in the NBA.

Stephen Curry returned after missing two games with a mild concussion on Saturday, scoring 22 points with three rebounds, 11 assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
It was his fourth double-double of the season and there should be more on the way with Andre Iguodala out of the lineup. Interestingly, Curry shot 54.5 percent from the field while Andre Iguodala wasn't on the court this season while he was just at 44.4 percent with him. Curry will be fine as long as he has his jumper and he's still the heavy favorite to lead the NBA in triples this season.

Stephen Curry (concussion) is in the starting lineup against the Blazers on Saturday night.
He went through his normal pre-game routine and he has received clearance to play after missing two games. Curry torched the Blazers in three games last season with averages of 25.3 points, 7.7 assists and 4.7 triples. He's safe to put back into all lineups and will likely see an uptick in overall production with Andre Iguodala out indefinitely.
