Kerr reveals what won't change with lineup when Dubs healthy

Kelly Oubre Warriors blue

The Warriors have been tinkering with various lineups all season.

While the rotations have been pretty consistent ever since James Wiseman and Kevon Looney went out with injuries, the coaching staff will be experimenting again once those two return.

One area of focus will be the unit that begins the second and fourth quarters. And it sure sounds like Andrew Wiggins will be a part of that combination, and Kelly Oubre will not.

"Where I've kind of landed is I really like Andrew with that group, and I really like Kelly playing most of the first quarter with Steph [Curry] and Draymond [Green]," Steve Kerr explained this week to The Athletic's Tim Kawakami on "The TK Show" podcast. "I think that's the best combination.

"The numbers bear it out in our analytics reports that we get every day. That's kind of been my gut feeling anyway. That part is not gonna change.

"It definitely took 20-25 games to get to that point -- to feel it -- because we just really didn't have a feel for this team when the season began."

Will Juan Toscano-Anderson continue to start? If Wiseman gets a shot to be featured at the open of the second and fourth quarters, what will that mean for Eric Paschall and his "small-ball center" role?

These are the questions the coaching staff will have to answer.


"There's gonna be too many people for too few roles," Kerr said. "It's not gonna be an easy choice."
