Jordan Poole starting for Warriors Friday in place of injured Stephen Curry

Golden State Warriors guard Jordan Poole is in the lineup Friday in the team's game against the New Orleans Pelicans.

What It Means:

Stephen Curry is sitting due to a tailbone ailment, and Andrew Wiggins and Draymond Green are both sitting with injuries of their own. As such, there are now three vacant spots in the starting five. For now, one of those will go to Poole, as he'll take over as the primary ball-handler.

Our models project Poole for 19.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 30.5 FanDuel points across 33.1 minutes of action.
