Warriors' Jonathan Kuminga: Scores 17 points in Game 5 loss

Kuminga produced 17 points (7-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 24 minutes during Wednesday's 134-95 loss to the Grizzlies. Kuminga played only five minutes and didn't score in Game 4, so his 17-point effort in Game 5 was a nice bounceback. However, the forward missed all five of his three-point attempts and didn't contribute much in the way of peripheral stats as Golden State was handed a massive defeat. Most of Kuminga's minutes Wednesday came in garbage time, so it will be interesting to see how he's used in a critical Game 6 on Friday.

Warriors' Jonathan Kuminga: Sees just five minutes in Game 4

Kuminga supplied one rebound, one assist and one block in five minutes during Monday's 101-98 victory over the Grizzlies. While Kuminga logged his second straight start with Gary Payton (elbow) sidelined, coach Steve Kerr went away from the rookie after his initial, five-minute stint to begin the game. This was a departure from what we saw in Game 3, when Kuminga played 18 minutes and finished with 18 points on 8-of-10 shooting with two rebounds.

Warriors' Jonathan Kuminga: Starting for injured Payton

Kuminga will start Saturday's Game 3 against the Grizzlies, C.J. Holmes of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. With Gary Payton suffering a fractured elbow, coach Steve Kerr will opt to start Kuminga while still bringing Jordan Poole off the bench for a spark in the second unit. Kuminga hasn't seen more than 15 minutes in any playoff game, but he figures to garner a bigger workload in this situation. In his 12 starts this season, he's averaged 12.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 24.3 minutes.

Warriors' Jonathan Kuminga: Solid performance in start

Kuminga accumulated 18 points (8-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over 18 minutes during Saturday's 142-112 win over the Grizzlies in Game 3 of the series. Although Kuminga saw light run in a starting role, he rose to the occasion as Gary Payton's (elbow) replacement in the blowout win. His 6-foot-7 frame gives Golden State's undersized lineup an added dimension, and with Payton out indefinitely, Kuminga will likely continue to hold down a spot on the top unit.
