Damion Lee scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with nine boards, two assists and three steals in Monday's preseason game against the Lakers.
Lee had a solid game and should find himself into some rotational minutes, but Jordan Poole (eight points, one rebound, three assists and two triples) is a more intriguing prospect while both are irrelevant in fantasy.

Jordan Poole scored 19 points on 6-of-11 shooting with two rebounds, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers in Thursday's preseason game against the Wolves.
Poole has a shot at consistent minutes off the bench as the Warriors are severely lacking depth and scoring in their reserve unit. He's a gunner who has a shot to put up some triples, but his production will rely heavily on whether or not he can beat out Alec Burks.
October 9, 2019, 4:26 pmKevon LooneyPF-C, Golden State Warriors
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.

Jordan Poole hit 4-of-9 3-pointers en route to his 17 points (5-of-11 shooting) in Saturday's preseason loss to the Lakers.
Poole also aded one rebound, one assist, one steal and converted on 3-of-4 shots from the line. With usual reserves Andre Iguodala (MEM) and Shaun Livingston (retired) gone, Poole might just get a shot at some deep-league value thanks to his production off the bench this season. Keep an eye on him.

The Warriors have signed Jordan Poole, Eric Paschall and Alen Smailagic to contracts.
The Warriors' three rookies will all be full-time members of the big club, though we could see Smailagic spend some time with the G-League club. There's not going to be much fantasy value here but it'll be interesting to see how the Warriors incorporate their young players on a more balanced roster.

Jordan Poole played well on Monday night for the Warriors, dropping 23 points on 7-of-15 shooting, with three 3s, two rebounds, two assists and three steals.
The Warriors will be missing Klay Thompson (ACL) for a good chunk of the season and have bid adieu to DeMarcus Cousins and Kevin Durant. Poole will have a shot at some rotation minutes but given he'll be playing behind Steph Curry and D'Angelo Russell, even possibly Jacob Evans as well, he can be left undrafted in most leagues.

Jordan Poole scored 21 in Saturday's win over the defending champion Raptors, adding two assists, two rebounds and two steals.
The 28th pick in this year's draft played 28 minutes in tonight's game while starting at PG. He and teammate Jacob Evans were a combined 16-for-35 from the field taking exactly half of the team's shots. Poole continues to put up a high volume of shots in the Summer League and should do so through the preseason up to the start of the season where he will see minimal opportunity behind Steph Curry and D'Angelo Russell.

Jordan Poole scored 15 points on 6-for-19 shooting – including 3-for-14 from three – with two assists, two steals and one block in Friday's 85-93 loss to the Hornets.
The late first-round pick who surprisingly was not sent to the free throw line, despite his 19 attempts from the field, clearly felt he had the green light tonight. He will need to be more efficient next time out if he hopes to factor into the minutes void left by the Klay Thompson injury.
July 2, 2019, 1:17 amJacob EvansSG, Golden State Warriors
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.

The Warriors have selected Jordan Poole with the 28th pick in the draft.
Poole was part of a talented Michigan team but was generally thought of as more of a project than some of his teammates. There were some consistency issues in Poole’s sophomore season — his first as a full-time starter — but he was able to shoot north of 37 percent from deep on heavy volume and showed nice ability to create off the dribble for himself and others. There are defensive concerns, and Poole was widely expected to be taken in the 40s or later, but he represents an upside play for a team that will need affordable production. Poole is also one of the younger players in the draft, having just turned 20 yesterday. Golden State could certainly use some scoring punch off the bench.

Ex-Michigan star guard Jordan Poole wrapped up his pre-draft workouts with a final workout with the Warriors, who own the 28th pick, on Tuesday.
The Warriors have been conducting as many workouts as they could in the days since the NBA Finals ended. Warriors GM Bob Myers has shown to go with the best player available approach in recent years, and it is likely that he goes that route again. The Warriors have made quite a few savvy picks in the later rounds, and with the Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson injuries, this year’s pick has the chance at a more sizable role than the last few had.
