Jordan Poole drew the start for the Warriors on Wednesday but struggled with his shot, going 4-for-12 from the field for 12 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two treys.
The Warriors' guard rotation is pitiful at this point and no one has managed to set himself apart. Expect the Warriors to keep tinkering until they find someone who can deliver regularly. Keep Poole on the wire for now.

Jordan Poole will be the starting point guard for the Warriors on Wednesday vs. the Suns.
Poole scored 12 points in 31 minutes on Monday and outplayed Ky Bowman (two points in 15 minutes). Poole is on the radar in 14-team leagues after being inserted into the starting lineup. He could be an add in standard leagues if he has a strong performance on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Bowman could lose value if he is pushed to a backup role and would be a drop in standard leagues if he plays under 25 minutes per game.

D'Angelo Russell (right quad contusion) is listed as out for Monday's game.
He was considered a game-time decision, but the Warriors have ruled him out. Jordan Poole and Alec Burks should be the next men up.

Jordan Poole set a new career-high on Saturday with 21 points on 8-of-19 shooting to go with three rebounds, two assists and four triples in 28 minutes.
Poole is tough to trust but he's scored double digits in each of his past four games and has hit 13 threes during that time. He can be deployed as points and threes streamer while he's hot, but there is little chance Poole holds standard-league value for long stretches.
January 18, 2020, 6:34 pmGlenn Robinson IIISG, Golden State Warriors
Glenn Robinson III (right ankle sprain) is being listed as out for Saturday's game against the Magic.
With Robinson out, there will be more minutes to go around for Jordan Poole, Alec Buks and Ky Bowman, among others. Robinson has been a consistent bench option for fantasy leagues this season and is providing top-105 value in 9/8 cat leagues over the past month.

Jordan Poole (right ankle contusion) scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting with two rebounds, five assists and three 3-pointers in 28 minutes in a blowout loss to the Mavs on Tuesday.
Poole had been questionable for this game, so it's good to see him perform well. That's two consecutive solid games for Poole, but as with most Warriors, he's unreliable (and shooting 27.2 percent for the season). Poole is best treated as a dart-throw threes specialist.

Jordan Poole (right ankle contusion) will play on Tuesday.
Poole was initially listed as questionable but shouldn't be on any fantasy radars given his struggles so far this year. Perhaps he gets some volume-driven value later in the year, but right now even deep-leaguers can take a wait-and-see approach.

Jordan Poole (right ankle contusion) is questionable for Tuesday's game.
Poole scored 13 points on Sunday but has had a dismal season overall. Poole could help fill in for Damion Lee if he's available on Tuesday.

The Warriors are considering sending Jordan Poole to a G League assignment, in a major step in the process to help the rookie shooting guard rediscover his game.
The move is a response to Poole failing to find any rhythm, shooting 25.8 percent from the field, including 24.5 percent from beyond the arc. The Warriors are certain Poole is better than what he has shown, but injuries left them in no position to be without any healthy player in recent weeks. The move, if it happens, could have a positive impact on the rookie who has been asked to do more than he is capable of delivering at this point of his career.

Coach Steve Kerr is encouraging Jordan Poole to shoot through his slump and it result in Poole posting a career-high 20 points on Friday.
By all accounts, Jordan "This Year's Kevin Knox" Poole has been a disaster this season, swagging his way to 9.4 points on 28% shooting in a generous 26 minutes per game. In fact, Friday was only the 2nd time all season that he's shot above 50% from the field. It's been 20 games. Despite his horrible shooting, the Warriors are right to stick with him, since whatever development plan they have for their young players will stall as soon as the Warriors get their stars back next year. Right now, the Warriors envision Poole as a Nick Young-type microwave scorer of the bench. Poole's got the swag and usage parts down, but everything else has yet to fall into place.

Jordan Poole caught fire on Friday, knocking down 5-of-6 shots from downtown, tieing his career-high with 20 points, one rebound and one assist.
Poole has been an afterthought in fantasy as of late and this was just a little nudge that he's got something to offer. Until he delivers on a consistent basis though, leave him on the wire.

Omari Spellman logged 28 minutes, contributing 18 points (7-for-9 shooting), five rebounds and an assist as the Warriors fell to the Jazz.
Spellman was one of three players off the Warriors bench on Friday. Marquese Chriss played 22 minutes adding 10 points (5-for-8 shooting), four assists, four rebounds, a steal and a block. Jordan Poole scored 13 points (4-for-13 shooting), one triple, one rebound and one assist. Leave all of these guys on your wire.
November 16, 2019, 2:39 pmD'Angelo RussellPG, Golden State Warriors
D'Angelo Russell will be re-evaluated in two weeks after an MRI confirmed his right thumb sprain.
This is a tough blow for Russell as he was playing out of his mind over the last five games, putting up late first-round value with 29.6 points and 7.0 assists on 51.0 percent shooting. Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole and Alec Burks will continue getting all of the backcourt minutes with Burks being the only must-add of the group for the near-term. Jacob Evans should return to the lineup before Russell and jump right into the rotation as well.

D'Angelo Russell (sprained right thumb) will undergo an MRI on Saturday after X-rays came back negative.
Russell left in the third quarter did not return in Friday's game . He has been blistering hot in the five games since returning from his ankle injury with 29.6 points, 7.0 assists, 1.6 steals and 3.4 triples while shooting 51.0 percent from the field. A time table has not yet been released while Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole and Alec Burks should get all the minutes they can handle at the two guard positions until Russell and Jacob Evans return.

Eric Paschall returned to the starting lineup on Friday and did not disappoint with 16 points on 6-of-14 shooting, along with eight rebounds, one 3-pointer and one assist.
Paschall is an intriguing rookie and is someone to use and/or stash for his tantalizing combination of opportunity and potential. He bumped Jordan Poole to the bench, who was quiet with four points on 1-of-8 shooting, six rebounds, one assist and one steal.
