McCaw will start at small forward for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The Warriors went with JaVale McGee as a starter in place of Zaza Pachulia during Game 3, but will move to a smaller lineup featuring McCaw, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in the frontcourt. McCaw will likely see an increase in playing time after logging just 11 minutes during Game 3, which should come with a temporary boost in his fantasy value as well.
McCaw contributed 18 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals across 25 minutes during a 136-100 win over the Spurs on Tuesday.
McCaw was great off the bench in Game 2, as he received an uptick in minutes as a result of the blowout nature of the game along with Andre Iguodala (knee) being sidelined. The 18 points were just one-point shy of his season high. If Iguodala is forced to miss more time, McCaw would continue to be one of the main beneficiaries.
McCaw will move to the bench for Monday's Game 4 against the Trail Blazers, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
With Kevin Durant (calf) making his return to the court after missing Game 2 and 3, McCaw will slide back into a reserve role where he'll likely spend the majority of Game 4 on the bench. In fact, when Durant was healthy for Game 1, McCaw only saw one minute of action.
McCaw will get the start at small forward for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Trail Blazers.
With both Kevin Durant (calf) and Matt Barnes (foot) sidelined Wednesday, the rookie will get his first career postseason start. He was on the court for less than a minute in Game 1, as he figures to be outside of the rotation during the playoffs with everyone healthy. However, he will presumably see a good amount of run in Game 2 due to the aforementioned absences. Still, look for Andre Iguodala to take on a heavier dose of the minutes at small forward.
McCaw will return to the bench for Wednesday's tilt with the Lakers.
McCaw started Monday's game against the Jazz with Klay Thompson sitting out for rest, posting nine points across 27 minutes. However, Thompson will return to the starting lineup Wednesday, which sends McCaw back to the bench. McCaw will likely see a slight decrease in minutes, but with Andre Iguodala out for rest, he could still see an elevated role until the playoffs start.
