The Warriors hope starting guard Ryan Rollins will be ready for training camp by the end of the month.
The 20-year-old, who signed a three-year, $4.8 million rookie contract in July, has not played in winter league because of a right foot strain.
But according to Shams Charania and The Athletic’s Anthony Slater citing sources, there is hope that Rollins could hit the hardwood when Golden State opens training camp on Sept. 24.
Golden State will know more about Rollins’ status over the next two weeks as he continues his recovery.
The 2022 second-round draft pick is ready to take his game to the next level with the Warriors.
Rollins averaged 13.7 points per game during his freshman season at Toledo, shooting 43 percent from the field. The following year, Rollins averaged 18.9 points per game and shot 47 percent from the field.
It’s clear that the Warriors are confident in Rollins’ development and ability. That’s why they traded the 51st pick and $2 million in cash to the Atlanta Hawks for Rollins.

Now is the time for the army to bring back the warriors because they trusted him.
And this may come sooner than anyone imagines.
