Nico Mannion: Headed overseas
Mannion signed with the Italian club Virtus Bologna on Tuesday, Jordan Schultz of ESPN reports.
A top recruit out of high school, Mannion spent one season at Arizona before being selected by the Warriors with the 48th overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. He appeared in 30 games last season but shot just 34.2 percent from the field en route to averages of 4.1 points, 2.3 assists and 1.5 rebounds per contest. The 20-year-old guard will now head over to Italy, where he should find a much larger role with the Serie A club. The Warriors will still hold Mannion's rights as a restricted free agent should he return to the league in the future.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Non-factor Thursday
Mannion had one steal during Thursday's win over Cleveland.
The rookie made his third straight appearance but logged just one minute of action to close out the win. Mannion has recorded 12 points and four rebounds throughout his past four outings with the Warriors.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Makes case for increased role
Mannion posted 19 points (5-12 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists and a rebound across 29 minutes in Thursday's 141-119 loss to the Kings.
Stephen Curry's absence has opened up a spot at point guard, and while Jordan Poole was the presumptive recipient of increased output, Mannion outplayed his teammate Thursday. Even though this is a temporary scenario for both guards, Mannion was the more effective shooter in the loss and played an almost identical minute count to Poole. His salary is much less expensive than Poole in most DFS formats, and it will be interesting to see if the trend continues Friday against the Hawks.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Settling in as backup point guard
Mannion tallied four points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), six assists and two steals across 18 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 108-98 loss to the 76ers.
Mannion has been bypassed for a spot in the starting five with Stephen Curry (tailbone) sidelined for the past three games, but the two-way rookie is seeing consistent playing time as the backup point guard behind Jordan Poole. He's received double-digit minutes in each of his eight games since returning from the G League bubble in Orlando, averaging 6.5 points, 3.1 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 1.1 three-pointers and 1.0 steals. Barring an injury to another rotational guard, Mannion is unlikely to see his production and playing time rise much from this current level, but his role on the second unit at least appears to be secure....

Warriors' Nico Mannion: Registers 10 points, four dimes
Mannion totaled 10 points (3-7 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and four assists across 19 minutes in Monday's loss to the Lakers.
The rookie tied his career high in points in the contest, reaching double figures for the second time in his last three games. Since returning from the G League in early March, Mannion has posted per-game averages of 8.5 points, 3.5 assists and 2.5 boards in 20.8 minutes over four games.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Drawing first start
Mannion is in the the starting five for Thursday's game against the Suns, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
With Stephen Curry (rest), Kelly Oubre (wrist) and Draymond Green (ankle) all out Thursday, the Warriors lineup had to undergo serious changes. Mannion, a rookie second-round pick, hasn't played since January and is only averaging 6.0 minutes per game on the season.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Recalled by Golden State
Mannion was recalled to the Warriors on Monday, Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Mannion will join the NBA squad with the G League season winding down. He put up solid numbers with Santa Cruz, averaging 19.3 points, 6.9 assists, 3.3 rebounds and 1.8 steals in nine contests, but he's unlikely to have much of a role in Golden State's rotation.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Dishes out 12 assists
Mannion (quadriceps) posted 12 points (4-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 12 assists and four rebounds across 31 minutes in Thursday's 116-111 win over G League Memphis.
After missing two straight games earlier in the week, Mannion returned to his typical role as G League Santa Cruz's starting point guard. The 19-year-old led the team in assists and was one of six players to reach double-digit points. Through seven games this year, Mannion has averaged 17.4 points, 7.1 assists and 3.6 rebounds per game while connecting on 37.5 percent of his field goals.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Sits out Monday
Mannion didn't play in Monday's 129-90 win over G League Agua Caliente due to a quad bruise.
Mannion typically is in the starting lineup when he's healthy. The rookie second-round pick has averaged 18.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game while hitting 38.4 percent of his shots this season.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Notches double-double
Mannion recorded 20 points (7-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 10 assists and two rebounds across 37 minutes in Wednesday's 111-108 win over Canton.
Mannion put up 21 shots Wednesday, far more than any of his Santa Cruz teammates, and his efficiency was suspect. However, he led the team in scoring and notched a double-double in the process. The rookie guard has hit 38.2 percent of his field goals in the G League thus far this season, including 32.8 percent of his three-pointers.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Registers 22 points
Mannion posted 22 points (8-20 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and seven assists in Saturday's 124-116 win over G League Westchester.
Mannion didn't play much in the NBA before the G League bubble started. However, the rookie second-round pick has made an immediate impact in the developmental league. He was one of four players to eclipse the 20-point threshold. Mannion has averaged 20.3 points per G League game, hitting 40 percent of field goals and 32.1 percent of three-pointers.... See More ...

Warriors' Nico Mannion: Joining G League bubble
Golden State head coach Steve Kerr confirmed last week that Mannion would report to the G League bubble in Orlando this month to play for the organization's affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, Alex Espinoza of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Mannion and Santa Cruz are scheduled to play their first game in Orlando on Feb. 10 versus the G League Ignite squad. The two-way rookie point guard will be joined in the bubble by 15-man roster players Jordan Poole and Alen Smailagic (knee).... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Makes mark in blowout
Mannion played 10 minutes Saturday in the Warriors' 127-108 loss to the Jazz, tallying eight points (3-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four assists and one steal.
With the Jazz building their lead to 40 with 9:37 remaining, head coach Steve Kerr summoned Mannion from the bench to join some of the Warriors' other deep reserves to finish out the blowout loss. Mannion did well to make the most of the opportunity, but the rookie second-round pick isn't expected to be rewarded with a regular rotation spot anytime soon. Instead, expect Mannion -- one of the Warriors' two two-way players -- to see most of his action at the G League level in 2020-21.... See More ... See Less
Warriors' Nico Mannion: Activated for Monday
Mannion has been activated for Monday night's game against the Kings, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
This marks the first NBA game that Mannion will be active for. Juan Toscano-Anderson will be deactivated as a result, per Slater.... See More ... See Less
