Is the dynasty over?

Stephen Curry (rest) will not play in Wednesday's preseason tilt against the Lakers.
No surpises here, as it was reported on Monday that he was likely to sit this one out. Jacob Evans wll get the start, and should actually see decent time handling the ball playing next to D'Angelo Russell.

Kevon Looney (hamstring) and Alec Burks (ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.
Looney suffered a minor tweak to his hamstring exactly a week ago while this is the first we are hearing about Burks' ankle injury. The Warriors are being extremely cautious with Looney as they are already without starting center Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot sprain) for the start of the regular season. Monitor both of them as they will have another opportunity to play in the preseason on Monday vs. the Lakers. They should be fine to start the regular season barring any setback. Expect Marquese Chriss, Omari Spellman and Eric Paschall to see a lot of minutes at center on Thursday. Burks' absence will mean more minutes for youngsters Jordan Poole and Jacob Evans.

Jacob Evans is expected to get the first crack at the backup PG role according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.
Take a look at the Warriors' current roster construction and you'll notice that this team has no real PG options outside of Stephen Curry and D'Angelo Russell. While it's safe to assume that Russell will get ample opportunity to run the show while Curry sits, this team will still need to find other ball-handlers. Evans will likely be asked to guard opposing teams' lead guards more than being a play maker. However, if he impresses enough in training camp he has an opportunity to get onto the floor in ways that the other Warriors' bench wings can't, making him the most intriguing of that crop.

Jacob Evans looked sharp in Wednesday's 73-69 win over the Nuggets in Summer League, dropping 17 points on 6-of-14 shooting.
Evans did a bit of everything, adding five rebounds, one dime, one trey, one steal and two swats to the box score. He's likely going to see some playing time in 2019-20 with Quinn Cook now gone. He's playing behind Steph Curry and D'Angelo Russell though, so it'll be rough sailing for him to be able to navigate into standard-league rosters.

Jacob Evans scored 24 points in Saturday's 80-71 win over the Raptors, adding eight rebounds, four assists and a steal.
Evans continues to have a good Summer League showing posting 24 points on 9-for-19 shooting while going 4-for-4 from the charity stripe. He played a team-high 31 minutes and made the most of it by playing aggressively as the starting SG. He and teammate Jordan Poole continue to lead the Warriors' summer team and are having a great run.

Jacob Evans posted 12 points, six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block across 31 minutes in Friday night's loss to the Hornets.
Evans looked good in his first audition for an increased role on the Warriors in the wake of the Klay Thompson injury. With a team-high 31 minutes it's clear the Warriors are determined to see what they have in Evans this summer.
July 2, 2019, 11:23 pmEric PaschallPF, Golden State Warriors
Eric Paschall had a nice line in a Summer League loss to the Lakers on Tuesday night as he put up 18 points on 6-of-8 from the field with three rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two three-pointers in 23 minutes.
The Warriors' second-round pick came alive in this one after a forgettable game yesterday. Last year's 28th pick, Jacob Evans also had a nice game with 13 points, four rebounds and seven assists in 24 minutes. Evans may be in line for a significant minutes increase (from 6.8 mpg) this coming season with Klay Thompson out.

Jacob Evans led the Warriors with 18 points (6-of-11 shooting), five rebounds, three assists, two steals, a block and a pair of 3-pointers in Monday's loss to the Kings in the California Classic.
Evans played a team-high 26 minutes and this was a great start to his sophomore campaign. He was thought to be NBA-ready coming out of the draft last season but didn't give the Warriors much help, only making 30 appearances and averaging 6.8 minutes per game. Given their cap situation and roster, odds are that Evans will be counted on much more this upcoming season. The same can be said of rookie Jordan Poole, who had a less successful statistical outing with six points on 3-of-12 from the field.

Jacob Evans contributed across the board with 11 points, five rebounds, two assists, three steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes on Tuesday.
Evans started and played the most minutes by far on the Warriors tonight. With the team expected to rest regulars again tomorrow, Evans could be in line for a similar workload. The same goes for Quinn Cook who had 19 points on 7-of-12 from the field in 24 minutes in Tuesday's victory.

Jacob Evans is starting against the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Evans and Alfonzo McKinnie are sliding into the starting lineup on Tuesday with Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson both sitting. Evans and McKinnie make for decent cheap plays in a good matchup.

Jacob Evans is with the team for Thursday's game against the Lakers.
Evans may see some minutes in mop-up duty but otherwise doesn't have a role on a mostly healthy Warriors team. He can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Jacob Evans (illness) will not play on Monday.
Evans was only going to play in garbage time anyway so this doesn't have any impact on fantasy leagues.
