As reported by CSN Bay Area's Matt Steinmetz, the Golden State Warriors have recalled rookie big man Jeremy Tyler from the Dakota Wizards of the NBA D-League, looking for some answers to the team's lack of size and physicality.
Tyler played five games with the Wizards, averaging 15.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 29 minutes per contest. He's seen time in 14 games for the Warriors, averaging just 4.6 minutes before being assigned to the D-League back on Feb. 27.
With Stephen Curry still not fully ready to compete, the W's had been using both Dominic McQuire and Andris Biedrins on the floor at the same time, essentially removing two offensive options from the floor for Golden State. Biedrins remains almost invisible on the floor, grabbing three rebounds, scoring no points and running up a -14 +/- in ten minutes of game time in the team's 120-100 victory on Monday.
Tyler will hopefully get some extra playing time, and keep Mark Jackson scratching his head as to what to do which the near feckless Biedrins.
