OAKLAND – Second-year big man Jordan Bell will start in place of injured forward Draymond Green (sprained right toe) Thursday night against the Bucks, a source told the Bay Area News Group.
It will be Bell’s first start of the season. The center started 13 games last season, but has found it difficult to crack the rotation behind Kevon Looney and Damian Jones this year.
Bell is averaging 1.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks this season.
