Warriors Coach Steve Kerr Message on Jordan Poole Caused Confusion
The Golden State Warriors have struggled a lot this season, especially when it comes to winning on the road. However, they have also been dealt a rough hand when it comes to injuries, as multiple players have missed a ton of time this year.
Due to that, they have had to rely heavily on their role players at times. Both of their two-way players – Anthony Lamb and Ty Jerome – have played heavy minutes, and the Warriors recently converted Lamb’s deal to a standard contract. However, they didn’t have a roster spot for Jerome.
After the Warriors’ win over the Houston Rockets on Monday night, Steve Kerr name-dropped Jordan Poole and Stephen Curry, noting that the Warriors are saving Jerome for a night where one of those two has to sit out.

“Ty – he’s really a guy who’s a proven NBA player. And so, we’re not going to have him play in the G League,” Kerr said via the NBA Interviews YouTube channel. “We’re going to save his- he’s got three NBA games left on his two-way contract. So, we’re going to save him for a rainy day. If Steph or Jordan has to miss a game, we’ll need Ty. So, we’re going to hang on to those games.”
NBA two-way players can only appear in 50 NBA games during the regular season and are ineligible for the postseason. Jerome only has three games remaining, so Golden State is saving those games.
As for Poole, he struggled with his shot in the Warriors’ win over Houston on Monday. The Warriors guard finished the game with five points, two rebounds, and eight assists on 1-of-8 shooting from the field and 1-of-6 shooting from behind the three-point line.
