Steve Kerr speaks out on the possibility of Warriors signing a center
The Golden State Warriors have been decimated with injuries yet again this season. Right now, with James Wiseman, Kevon Looney, and Eric Paschall all dealing with respective injuries, the Dubs have been left with no true center available in their lineup. Coach Steve Kerr recently opened up about this issue, as he discussed how the team intends to address the problem at hand.
According to coach Kerr, the Warriors have no intention to sign a new center right now:
Warriors won't add another center in the coming days. They're comfortable going full small-ball for at least another week: Kerr: "We're not looking to do anything."

Draymond Green has been taking the bulk of the minutes at the five in the wake of the myriad of injuries for Golden State. Kerr has found significant success with the squad’s small-ball type of play and based on his direct statement above, he is more than willing to revert to this tactic for the time being.
For what it’s worth, the Warriors have won just two out of their last five games, as they continue to try and find their stride this season. They are coming off a 114-91 blowout win against the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday, though, so this is certainly something to build on as they take on the Orlando Magic on Thursday.
Kerr has guided the Dubs to a 13-12 record, and despite all the challenges this team has had to face early in the campaign, they are still currently sitting at the eighth spot in a ruthless Western Conference.
Despite being able to (somewhat) successfully navigate through the injury bug that has bitten this team of late, it’s certain that Kerr is still very much looking forward to getting his bigs back at the soonest possible time.
