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.
