The Warriors have named Damian Jones their opening night starter at center, and he posted 16 points, six rebounds, two assists and a steal in Friday's 105-119 loss.
Jones started throughout the preseason and earned the job, outplaying both Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell. He hit all six of his shots in 23 minutes tonight and is immediately a potential flier given his potential to rack up blocks and rebounds, even in limited minutes. Jordan Bell still offers more upside and is the preferred fantasy pick but Jones' play has been quite impressive considering he's barely seen the court at the NBA level in his first two seasons. The Warriors could opt to turn to Bell or Looney at any time, but for now the job belongs to Jones.
