Alen Smailagic starting for Warriors Saturday in place of inactive Kevon Looney

Golden State Warriors forward Alen Smailagic will start Saturday in the team's game against the Memphis Grizzlies.

What It Means:

Smailagic has barely played thus far in his second season in the association, but with Golden State depleted in the frontcourt on Saturday, he'll be getting a start - the first of his career. It's unclear when usual starter Kevon Looney will be cleared to return.

In 2 games this season, Smailagic has made one of two attempts across 5 minutes of action.
