Source: Warriors Pick Up Omari Spellman's Team Option for 2020-21 Season

The Warriors got a lot of bad news Wednesday night, but one of their players got the opposite.

After seeing Steph Curry leave the eventual loss to the Suns with a broken left hand, NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock reported that Golden State picked up power forward Omari Spellman's option for next season, citing a source. The Dubs had until Thursday to do so.

The Warriors acquired Spellman from the Hawks in exchange for Damian Jones and a 2026 second-round draft pick back in July. The 22-year-old has provided the Warriors with some much-needed size in the paint while players like Willie Cauley-Stein and Kevon Looney have been sidelined with injuries.

Given Curry's injury, several young players on Golden State's roster are about to see a big uptick in their playing time and opportunities. Spellman certainly qualifies.

"Where we are, we might as well throw 'em into the frying pan," Kerr said of the young players following Wednesday's loss. "I think they're doing a great job."
