01.09 News Recently, NBCsports wrote an article describing the Warriors’ plight of two two-way contract players in the lineup.
Due to injuries and inexperience of the Warriors’ young bench, Warriors coach Steve Kerr recently used Lamb and Jerome, and the two-way players have played more than anyone expected.
However, two-way contracts have limitations.
Players on two-way contracts can only play no more than 50 games on a team’s active roster during the regular season and cannot appear in the playoffs.
That means even if Kerr puts Lamb and Jerome on the roster but doesn’t play, they still count against the limit.
This season, Lamb has played 32 games, while Jerome has played 24 times.
Jerome was on the roster for two games but didn’t play, so his number is 26.
The Warriors have played 40 games this season, with 42 more to come.
There are currently 16 players in the Warriors lineup, including the two-way contracts of Lamb and Jerome.
Lamb and Jerome will compete for the last spot on the Warriors’ 15-man roster (without changing the original 14 players).
Of course, the Warriors can also use the last spot in the buyout market or not to save money.
