A month into the season, and the injury bug is still hitting the Golden State Warriors. Steph Curry and DeMarcus Cousins are shelved with their well-documented injuries, but that’s not all. After playing twice this week, Draymond Green will take some time off to try and fully heal his sprained toe, which is still giving him problems.

And just to add insult to injury - so to speak - Alfonzo McKinnie is missing tonight’s game against the Dallas Mavericks as well.

To add some much-needed depth, the Warriors are recalling both of their two-way contracts - Damion Lee and Marcus Derrickson - from the Santa Cruz Warriors.

Neither player has played much for Golden State this year - Lee has played 24 minutes in four games, and totaled 11 points, while Derrickson has played in just one game, for six minutes, and scored two points.

But both players have performed well in the G League this season. Lee is averaging a blistering 27.0 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.0 assists per game, while shooting 66.7% from beyond the arc. Derrickson, meanwhile, is averaging 15.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game, while shooting 44.4% on threes.

With the team only having 12 healthy players, you can expect to see one or both of these players on the court today.
