Instead, Jackson-Davis and Podziemski were reassigned to the Warriors’ G League affiliate in Santa Cruz.
The first question to Warriors coach Steve Kerr during his pregame press conference Friday at Paycom Center was about why the rookies were sent to Santa Cruz.
“The next few days are training camp for Santa Cruz,” Kerr told reporters. “So, a lot of great drill work, scrimmage time. And with neither guy in the rotation right now, we felt like it was better time spent there and then, they’ll rejoin the team soon.”
In 23 minutes of action, Podziemski finished with five points on 2-of-5 shooting while grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out two assists. He was a plus-15 off the bench.
Jackson-Davis has seen action in two games this season and looks like he can be a solid contributor for the Warriors. He played just under five minutes against the Sacramento Kings on Oct. 27 and didn’t score, but he was a plus-seven in his NBA debut.
