Warriors' Damian Jones: Likely to start preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Steve Kerr said Jones will likely start Saturday's preseason opener against the Timberwolves, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

Jones is currently battling with both Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney for rights to the top center job, but it's encouraging that he'll likely get the first crack at working with the starting five. Barring a surprise, look for Jones to take the court first out of those three, though considering he's set to play alongside four All-Stars, he likely won't have a significant role on the offensive side of the ball. Both Bell and Looney could get an opportunity to start later this preseason as well, so it continues to be a situation to simply monitor.

Warriors' Damian Jones: Will compete for starting job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr suggested Tuesday that Jones will have a chance to start at center early on during the upcoming season, Mark Medina of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

DeMarcus Cousins is eventually expected to settle in as the Warriors' starting center, but his status for the start of the season is in peril while he continues to recover from the torn left Achilles' tendon he sustained in late January, an injury that typically carries a 6-to-10-month recovery timeline. With the Warriors inclined to take a cautious approach with the free-agent pickup, it's likely that Kerr will experiment with different lineups in the Warriors' initial contests, perhaps opening the door for Jones, Kevon Looney or Jordan Bell to see more run with the top unit. Jones, a 2016 first-round pick, has made just 25 appearances with the Warriors through his first two seasons in the NBA, but has impressed during his extended assignments with the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors. Even if he emerges as the Warriors' preferred option at center while Cousins is out, Jones is unlikely to see much involvement on offense while sharing the court with the likes of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

Warriors' Damian Jones: Inks two-way deal with Golden State
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones signed a two-way contract with the Warriors on Saturday.

Jones has played just 174 minutes across two seasons with the Warriors, though that's nothing too unexpected considering the team's deep, skilled rotation and the fact that Jones was the 30th overall pick. In signing a two-way deal, that trend will continue, as he's set to spend the vast majority of next year in the G-League.

Warriors' Damian Jones: Set to miss summer league finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (knee) has been ruled out for Friday's summer league finale, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

Jones suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain during Friday's summer league contest and was subsequently held out of Sunday's outing as well. Considering it's only exhibition play, the Warriors are understandably going to remain cautious with their big man and hold him out. That should give Jones plenty of time to get back to full strength for training camp, so don't expect him to miss any meaningful time. After playing a combined 25 games over his first two NBA seasons, Jones could break into the center rotation until DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) is healthy. Both Zaza Pachulia and JaVale McGee left during free agency.

Warriors' Damian Jones: Day-to-day with MCL Sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones has been diagnosed with a Grade 1 MCL sprain and will miss Monday's contest against the Mavericks, Anthony Slater of The Athletic Bay Area reports.

Jones suffered the injury during Friday's summer league contest, however will be considered day-to-day as he deals with a Grade 1 MCL sprain. He may be done for the remainder of Summer League, as they likely won't risk furthering the injury during these exhibition games. More information should come out following Monday's contest as well as prior to the Warriors next contest.
