West and the Warriors have agreed to a one-year deal, David Aldridge of NBA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The one-year deal will reportedly be his last with the Warriors, and likely in the league. After 12 seasons in New Orleans and Indiana, West ventured to San Antonio in 2015 in pursuit of a championship. He came up short, but subsequently headed to Golden State the following year and succeeded in his quest. Thus, it was not going to be surprising if the 36-year-old opted to retire. However, he will remain with the Warriors, where he averaged 4.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.6 steals, and 0.7 blocks across 12.6 minutes per game. Expect him to see a similar workload with the club in the upcoming season.

West ended up with a season-high 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt) with five assists, four rebounds and two blocked shots over 22 minutes in Wednesday's 110-98 win against the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

West entered averaging 4.8 points per game over his past 10 outings, which was right around his season production. The 15-point outing was his most productive since April 8, 2016 when he went for 17 points as a member of the Spurs.

West totaled eight points (3-8 FG, 2-2 FT, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block over 15 minutes in Saturday's 107-85 loss to the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran maximized his time on the court, as his full stat line represented the first time West had checked off as many categories in six March games. West's minutes remain firmly in the teens on a nightly basis and he provides serviceable scoring, rebound and assist numbers relative to playing time. He remains an option only in deep formats due to the ceiling on his production.

West (thumb) provided four points (2-4 FG), four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal across 11 minutes in Thursday's 123-113 win over the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

West gave the Warriors some quality minutes off the bench in his return from a 14-game absence due to the fractured thumb, but while the starting five remains at full strength, the veteran big man is no threat to pick up much additional run in future contests. He's averaging a meager 4.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 11.5 minutes per game on the season.

West (thumb) will play during Thursday's game against the Clippers, Ethan Strauss of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

West has missed the past 14 games due to a broken thumb, but will play Thursday. He'll likely assume his average of 11.5 minutes per game moving forward, and his return will probably reduce the workloads of both Kevon Looney and James McAdoo.

West (thumb) is considered questionable for Thursday's tilt against the Clippers, Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News reports.

EDGE Analysis

West missed the Warriors last 14 games prior to the All-Star break but has been practicing. Though he's officially considered questionable, there's a good chance he plays Thursday, Monty Poole of CSN Bay Area reports. When healthy, West was seeing just 11.5 minutes per game. His return shouldn't impact the minutes distribution greatly, though it could result in a slight reduction in play time for Kevon Looney and James McAdoo.

West (thumb) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Kings.

EDGE Analysis

West has been sidelined since Jan. 18 with a non-displaced left thumb fracture and since he hasn't fully healed, the Warriors will keep him out until after the All-Star break. If West is able to return to practice when the Warriors reconvene next week, he could be ready to play Feb. 23 against the Clippers, but the forward isn't worth tracking for fantasy purposes outside of the deepest of leagues. He's averaging only 4.1 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 11.5 minutes per game on the season.

West (thumb) has been ruled out of Monday's tilt with the Nuggets.

EDGE Analysis

West will miss his 13th straight game as he continues to recover from a fractured thumb. It seems increasingly likely that the Warriors will rest the veteran through the All-Star break, although they have not made any official announcements of the sort. Look for James McAdoo to see increased minutes in his absence.

West (thumb) will not play Saturday against the Thunder, Anthony Slater of Bay Area News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran will miss a 12th straight game as he continues to work back from a fractured thumb on his left hand. The Warriors have no reason to rush West back, and at this point it seems likely that he'll remain out through the All-Star break.

West (thumb) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Grizzlies.

EDGE Analysis

West's 11th straight absence was fully expected, as coach Steve Kerr indicated a few days ago that the veteran big man wasn't expected back during the three-game road trip that begins Friday. After the road trip ends, the Warriors will play a home game against the Kings on Feb. 15 before heading into the All-Star break, so it seems likely West will just be held out until the second half begins. Kevon Looney and James McAdoo should benefit from mild bumps in minutes for as long as West is out.
