Derrickson posted nine points (3-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in the 113-108 loss Monday to Santa Cruz.
Arguably one of the most anonymous two-way players in the G League at the moment, Derrickson continues to see about 27 minutes a night, averaging 13.9 points, 5.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 32 games with Santa Cruz this season.
Derrickson, an undrafted rookie out of Georgetown, has split time between Santa Cruz and Golden State this season while playing on a two-way contract. The parent club has only called upon him for six appearances, however, and it's unlikely he'll be needed for extended minutes in the near future with DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) set to make his season debut Friday against the Clippers. Expect Derrickson to see most of his action with Santa Cruz moving forward.
Derrickson will provide the Warriors some added depth in the frontcourt with Damian Jones (pectoral) facing an extended absence, Draymond Green (toe) likely to miss the remaining three games of Golden State's road trip and Alfonzo McKinnie (foot) not expected back until at least Wednesday's game in Cleveland. Kevon Looney, Jordan Bell and Jonas Jerebko should be the primary beneficiaries of increased playing time due to the extensive injuries, but a minor role in the rotation could open up for Derrickson along the way. The undrafted rookie out of Georgetown has suited up in just two games with the NBA team this season, playing nine minutes in total.
Derrickson will get the start at power forward for Friday's exhibition game against the Kings, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Derrickson, a training camp invitee by the Warriors, will draw his first start Friday. It looks like head coach Steve Kerr is just mixing things up to see how they mesh. The Geogretown product had an impressive summer in Las Vegas, and is likely heading toward a G-League stint once the season tips off.
