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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
