With the recent spat of injuries to the Warriors, they need some of their rookies to step up. 22-year old guard Charles Jenkins has replaced Stephen Curry in the starting lineup due to his ankle injury. Jenkins has played in 7 games (3 starts) for the Warriors so far this year and he is averaging 7.4 minutes, 1.7 points, 0.3 rebounds and 1.1 assists per game. The Warriors would like for 21-year old guard Klay Thompson to step up and replace Jenkins in the starting lineup, but he’s not playing well enough right now. Thompson has played in 9 games (1 start) for the Warriors so far this year and he is averaging 17.7 minutes, 5.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists per game. He is only shooting 38% from the floor so far this season and that’s just not good enough. 20-year old center Jeremy Tyler has only played in 4 games (0 starts) for the Warriors so far this year and he is averaging 1.8 minutes and 0.5 points per game. 23-year old forward Chris Wright has played in 3 games (0 starts)
