Connor Letourneau: Kerr is going to start Looney instead of Wiseman tonight at center. “Basically you’ve heard me all year talk about trying to establish ourselves as a defensive team, and the last two games have been disappointing,” Kerr said. “The hope is we can get off to a better start.”
Nick Friedell: Kerr said he spoke to Wiseman and the rookie handled it well. “He understands this is not a demotion by any means … I’m very confident this will be a good part of his development.” Kerr said Wiseman will come in off the bench where Looney did.
Dane Moore: Steve Kerr described the Warriors acquisition and then departure of D’Angelo Russell as “a story of how the NBA works” — from being the other half of a complicated sign-and-trade for Kevin Durant to becoming a valuable asset that became some draft picks.
Andrew Lopez: Sources tell @Adrian Wojnarowski and me that the issue with the postponement in the Spurs-Pelicans game is with a potential coronavirus exposure to a non-team member of the traveling parties of both teams in recent days. The NBA is taking extra precautions with these situations.
