  • Bender totaled 23 points (8-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 131-107 loss to the Clippers. A lot fell into place for Bender, allowing him to compile his best game of the season. The Warriors were already without a number of players and lost Juan Toscano-Anderson (ankle) to injury after less than a minute. The game then transitioned into garbage time, which afforded Bender plenty of run down the stretch. Based on what we have seen over the past few weeks, this is likely an outlier, and there is no need to rush out and add Bender anywhere outside of the deepest formats.

  • Bender re-signed Thursday with the Warriors on a second 10-day contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Bender briefly hit the open market after his original 10-day deal expired Tuesday, but Warriors coach Steve Kerr noted earlier in the week that he was interested in retaining the big man. Golden State was ultimately able to find a spot on the roster for Bender for another week and a half after he impressed in his initial trail with the club. Over his first six games with Golden State, Bender averaged 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 three-pointers in 23.3 minutes, though he shot only 36.7 percent from the field.

  • Bender's 10-day contract with the Warriors expired Tuesday, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. The Warriors got a nice sample size from Bender's 10-day contract, as he appeared in six games. In 23.3 minutes per contest, he averaged 7.5 points on 8.2 shots, 6.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists. Slater reports that the Warriors aren't planning to immediately re-sign Bender to another 10-day, instead prioritizing flexibility.

  • Bender will return to a reserve role in Tuesday's tilt against the Nuggets, Wes Goldberg of The San Jose Mercury News reports. The Warriors have opted to go with a smaller lineup, so Bender will come off the bench as a result. Still, the team only has nine healthy players, so he figures to see plenty of run off the bench.
