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.

Damion Lee (fractured right hand) is out at least the next two weeks after getting an MRI on Tuesday.
The Warriors continue to take a beating up and down their roster. Alec Burks and Jordan Poole will see extra minutes while Lee is out.

Alec Burks had his best game of the season on Wednesday, ending with 28 points, eight rebounds, three assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.
Burks led the team in field goal attempts in this one, finishing the night going 10-of-18 from the floor. It's great to see Burks have a well rounded game but this likely won't be the norm as these are season-highs in points, rebounds, steals and threes. With Jordan Poole struggling with his shot again (2-for-11) and Damion Lee not doing much better (3-for-14), Burks was able to pick up the slack. Burks isn't someone that we are rushing to the waivers to pick up after this performance and he will likely have tamer nights when the team is healthy again.
November 6, 2019, 12:10 pmD'Angelo RussellPG, Golden State Warriors
D'Angelo Russell is still dealing with a right ankle sprain and has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Rockets.
Russell injured himself on Friday and had been considered questionable for Wednesday until this news emerged. Consider Russell day-to-day for the moment, but he will be looking at a major opportunity to put up numbers when he is pronounced ready. Jordan Poole and Alec Burks had strong games on Monday when Russell was sidelined.

Jordan Poole couldn't buy many buckets on Monday, going 3-of-16 from the field but still finished the night with 16 points, three rebounds, two 3s, five assists and one block.
The inefficient shooting was a bummer, but the usage and peripheral contributions are good signs that Poole will hold some low-end value moving forward, albeit with a ton of volatility along the way.
November 4, 2019, 4:09 pmD'Angelo RussellPG, Golden State Warriors
D'Angelo Russell (sprained right ankle) will not be available for Monday's game against the Blazers.
Russell's injury is not expected to be long-term, but the Warriors don't feel compelled to play him at less than full strength. The good news is that Russell will have high value when he does come back due to so many Warriors injuries. For now, the stock of Jordan Poole and Alec Burks should get a bump.

Jordan Poole got the start for the Warriors and ended up scoring just five points, on 2-of-9 shooting, in 31 minutes of action Saturday night.
Poole has been getting the starting nod the past few games and squandered tonight's opportunity with a clunker. He could not find his shot and failed to register a three. Without scoring, Poole showed that he offers very little else in regards to fantasy production. He remains a speculative add in deeper leagues, until such time that he displays he can produce at a consistent level.

The Warriors will start Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole, Glenn Robinson, Eric Paschall, Willie Cauley-Stein vs. the Hornets on Saturday.
Yikes. This looks like it could fathomably be Santa Cruz Warriors' bench unit, but this is what the former three-time champions have been reduced to after losing a number of key players during the offseason and suffering significant injuries early on in 2019-20. As for this starting five, pick a name out of a hat. Bowman is a bit of an unknown, but he put up an intriguing line with 3 steals two games ago. Poole is a chucker who can score and hit threes with little to no peripheral stats. Paschall looks like he belongs in the NBA, but doesn't have the highest upside. Cauley-Stein will demolish your free throws and won't provide good blocks for a center. If you're the type to gamble, all of these players should probably be rostered, but predicting who will emerge out of the pack right now is folly.

Jordan Poole got off to a hot start on Friday and kept his foot on the gas, resulting in 20 points on 7-of-13 shooting with four triples and one assist in 29 minutes.
It was a bit disconcerting that he did not grab a rebound nor any defensive stats. That said, we like the aggressiveness, the usage and the uptick in production.
