McCaw mustered 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt), four assists and two rebounds across 31 minutes in Friday's 117-106 preseason win over the Kings.
This was an outing McCaw badly needed after having gone scoreless over a combined 32 minutes across his previous two exhibitions. The 2016 second-round pick saw action in 71 contests last season, drawing 20 starts when Kevin Durant was sidelined during the second half of the season. He'll slot in behind Durant and Andre Iguodala at small forward to open the regular season, and he could be in for a slight bump in the 15.1 minutes he saw in his rookie campaign.
McCaw will start at small forward for Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals against the Spurs, Jeff McDonald of the San Antonio Express-News reports.
The Warriors went with JaVale McGee as a starter in place of Zaza Pachulia during Game 3, but will move to a smaller lineup featuring McCaw, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green in the frontcourt. McCaw will likely see an increase in playing time after logging just 11 minutes during Game 3, which should come with a temporary boost in his fantasy value as well.
McCaw contributed 18 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, three rebounds and three steals across 25 minutes during a 136-100 win over the Spurs on Tuesday.
McCaw was great off the bench in Game 2, as he received an uptick in minutes as a result of the blowout nature of the game along with Andre Iguodala (knee) being sidelined. The 18 points were just one-point shy of his season high. If Iguodala is forced to miss more time, McCaw would continue to be one of the main beneficiaries.
McCaw will move to the bench for Monday's Game 4 against the Trail Blazers, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
With Kevin Durant (calf) making his return to the court after missing Game 2 and 3, McCaw will slide back into a reserve role where he'll likely spend the majority of Game 4 on the bench. In fact, when Durant was healthy for Game 1, McCaw only saw one minute of action.
McCaw will get the start at small forward for Wednesday's Game 2 against the Trail Blazers.
With both Kevin Durant (calf) and Matt Barnes (foot) sidelined Wednesday, the rookie will get his first career postseason start. He was on the court for less than a minute in Game 1, as he figures to be outside of the rotation during the playoffs with everyone healthy. However, he will presumably see a good amount of run in Game 2 due to the aforementioned absences. Still, look for Andre Iguodala to take on a heavier dose of the minutes at small forward.
