Jordan Bell scored five points on 2-of-2 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 21 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Blazers.
This was the first game we've seen in which his athleticism has looked to be where it was last season. It also coincided with beat writers suggesting that he passed Damian Jones (10 minutes, one steal) in the rotation and Steve Kerr saying after the game that he wants to get him more minutes. It looks like he showed up to this season out of shape and if conditioning is really at the root of this, then there could be a chance he snaps back into some of the preseason projections. If he's good he can possibly survive DeMarcus Cousins' return and be a per-minute monster in 20-24 mpg, but there are still a lot of question marks for owners to consider with this potential spec add.
