Second-year big man Jordan Bell will start in place of injured forward Draymond Green (sprained right toe) Thursday night against the Bucks, a source told the Bay Area News Group. It will be Bell’s first start of the season.
More Rumors in this Storyline
Chris Haynes: Golden State forward Jordan Bell will miss his second consecutive Summer League contest tonight with a sore shoulder, league sources tell ESPN.
Logan Murdock: Draymond Green is OUT against the Lakers with shoulder soreness and Jordan Bell is probable, per team.
Kerry Eggers: Warriors very short-handed for #Blazers game tonight at @ModaCenter. @Stephen Curry (ankle), Jordan Bell (ankle) and Patrick McCaw (wrist) out, Andre Iguodala (wrist) and David West (arm) doubtful. #ripcity
Melissa Rohlin: Steve Kerr said Jordan Bell is out this weekend. He will be re-evaluated Tuesday.
Logan Murdock: Warriors injury report for tonight: -Andre Iguodala (left wrist) is out -David West (Cyst) is doubtful -Patrick McCaw (wrist) -Jordan Bell (right ankle) out
Melissa Rohlin: Jordan Bell (low back strain) is available tonight. David West (right arm cyst) is out.
Connor Letourneau: Jordan Bell (low back strain) is listed as probable for tomorrow’s game vs. Brooklyn.
Anthony Slater: Jordan Bell will return tonight vs Knicks. That deactivates Kevon Looney. Quinn Cook remains active with McCaw out so Warriors have a guard to use if there is mop-up time.
Marc J. Spears: Warriors say rookie forward Jordan Bell (left ankle inflammation) is probable for tonight’s game at New York.
Anthony Slater: Jordan Bell considered questionable vs Knicks tomorrow, sounds like leaning more toward likely. If he returns, it’s likely that a big (Looney most likely) moves to inactive list
Connor Letourneau: Kerr on Bell: “I’m hopeful he’ll return for one of the three games on the the trip.” Said he isn’t sure if it’ll be Monday in New York.
Logan Murdock: Steve Kerr said Jordan Bell will be right back in the rotation upon return to the lineup. Still unclear when Bell will return.
Yet, Bell has fought internal frustration for understandable reasons. When the Warriors (44-13) play the Portland Trail Blazers (31-26) on Wednesday, it will mark the 13th consecutive game Bell will miss because of inflammation in his left ankle. The Warriors plan to reevaluate Bell next week at some point after the NBA All-Star break.
“It’s been tough. I obviously want to play and practice with the team,” Jordan Bell said. “But it’s also been a learning moment being able to watch the game, observe everything and see how we’re playing and see what the things I can bring when I come back.”
Connor Letourneau: The Warriors will announce the results of Jordan Bell’s MRI tomorrow. Doctors in the Bay still need to look over the MRI.
Monte Poole: Update on #Warriors rookie PF Jordan Bell (L ankle sprain) unlikely to come today, per sources. Friday more likely, as medical staff still diagnosing full extent of the injury.
Nick Friedell: Jordan Bell tried to walk off the floor with the help of trainers and couldn’t do it. He is in a lot of pain. His teammates came to the floor to check on him. Got some well wishes from the Bulls as well as he passed their bench on the way back to the locker room.

According to Shams Charania of Stadium and The Athletic, Jordan is “hellbent” on keeping Walker in a Hornets uniform even though he is set to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. Charania went on to note the Hornets “still want to build their franchise around” the dynamic playmaker who poured in 60 points in Saturday’s overtime loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
As they did, however, Markelle Fultz watched from the bench, having been benched in favor of McConnell as head coach Brett Brown tried to give his team an injection of life. And after McConnell did just that, helping lift Philadelphia to a 119-114 victory — its third straight win — Brown wouldn’t commit to either player as his backup point guard moving forward. “I don’t know,” Brown said after Monday’s win. When asked what would inform his decision, Brown said, “Just when I think it through deeper and look at tape and see who we’re playing, the next opponent, all those things I should do.”
One week after a blowout loss in Sacramento that sealed the fate of his two-month trade saga, Butler is enjoying his new reality with the Philadelphia 76ers — leading them to two straight victories, including a 28-point performance in his home debut on Friday night against Utah. He then had the game-winning 3-pointer and game-winning block to lift the Sixers past Charlotte and Kemba Walker’s 60 points on Saturday night. “Night and day,” Butler told The Athletic of his new situation.
“We learned a lot from our series against the Celtics, and we felt we needed Jimmy,” Harris told The Athletic. “Since last summer, we’ve felt we needed a third elite talent. You don’t get a chance to get this talent every day. Jimmy wants to win, and Joel and Ben want to win. That’s the bottom line.”
Brian Dulik: #Cavaliers SF Kyle Korver joking about battling former teammate @KingJames and #Lakers on Wednesday @TheQArena: “We know all of his tendencies and we know how to take them away.” #BeTheFight #NBA
