McCaw will suit up in Santa Cruz's game Friday against the Salt Lake City Stars, with teammate Kevon Looney also joining him on the assignment. Both will likely return to the team when the Warriors take on the Cavaliers on Monday. McCaw has appeared in 30 games for the Warriors this season, averaging 2.6 points and 1.0 rebound in 11.5 minutes per game.
McCaw was appointed to the starting five after coach Steve Kerr opted to give Klay Thompson the night off for rest purposes, and received a healthy boost in minutes. However, he largely functioned as a placeholder in the starting five, as reserves Andre Iguodala (29 minutes) and Ian Clark (22 minutes) both saw more run on the wing. Thompson is expected to return to action Thursday against the Pistons, which will relegate McCaw to a bench role and potentially, out of the rotation.
McCaw has officially been announced a starter at shooting guard for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area reports.
It was reported earlier Tuesday that there was a good chance McCaw moved into the starting lineup, so it appears that original premonition has come true. McCaw should be in line for a much bigger role than usual, although with guys like Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green all healthy and on the floor, he'll be nothing more than a fourth option offensively. Still, his season averages should be easily out-produced while working with the top unit.
The rookie out of UNLV has not been a part of the rotation of late, appearing in just two of the
McCaw (illness) will be available to play in Wednesday's game against the Trail Blazers, Anthony Slater of Bay Area News Group reports.
McCaw was able to take part in practice on Tuesday, so his availability for Wednesday's contest was fully expected. He should jump back into a small rotation role off the bench, likely seeing a few spots minutes behind Klay Thompson and Ian Clark at shooting guard. In 26 games this season, McCaw has averaged just 2.8 points, 1.0 rebound and 1.0 assist over 12.2 minutes, so he'll likely struggle to post fantasy worthy numbers in competitive outings.
