There is a lot of negativity about the lack of a backup pg for the Warriors right now. This is very understandable with the current situation. I look at it as a great opportunity for JLin. Obviously, there is not a lot of confidence in him at this point. However, all it takes is a few good minutes to turn things around.
Jeremy will most likely get garbage minutes and also spot time when Coach Smart feels that there is a good matchup for him. He will probably also get a bunch of "DNP Coach's Decision". With a very short leash, Jeremy doesn't have much room for error. Whenever he is in, he has to produce and he must have a good +-.
The next few months are critical as there are two major injuries to help keep JLin on the active roster. Hopefully, he will get some meaningful playing time. He has shown that he can get to the basket and draw fouls at this level, like he has at all other levels. Defensively, he looks fine as well. However, he has not played enough to just relax and play without thinking or worrying about making a mistake. Once he is gets that chance, I am confident that he will show he is capable of giving the Warriors the solid backup pg play they surely need.
