Warriors second-round pick Ryan Rollins has a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot, the team announced today in a press release.
According to the Warriors, the injury was discovered during a medical evaluation that was part of Rollins’ on-boarding process. It’s unclear how long it will sideline him, but it will prevent him from suiting up for either the California Classic Summer League or the Las Vegas Summer League. The club said in its statement that he’ll be reevaluated at the end of the Vegas Summer League.
Rollins averaged 18.9 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 3.6 APG for Toledo as a sophomore last season before declaring for the draft as an early entrant. Golden State sent $2MM in cash to Atlanta during the draft to move up from No. 51 to No. 44 to nab him.
A report after the draft stated that the Warriors expect to have Rollins on their 15-man roster in 2022/23. There’s no indication at this point that his foot injury will alter that plan.

Ws gave up $2M to move up 7spots in the middle of the 2nd rd for this kid. That put Ryan Rollins squarely on my radar going forward. Sucks that he won’t play SL but it’ll be interesting to track how he fits with Poole, Moody, Kuminga & Wiseman as the next generation in the Bay
Probably wasn’t getting any playing time next year anyways. Def a development player for the next 2 years.
Recovery. In most cases, it takes 6 to 8 weeks for a stress fracture to heal. More serious stress fractures can take longer.
Thank you for that diagnosis, doctor!
