The Warriors have recalled forwardcenter Jeremy Tyler fromthe Dakota Wizards of the D-League, the team announced.Tyler averaged 15.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in29 minutes in five games with Dakota. He had played just 14 games for theWarriors, averaging 4.6 minutes per game, before being assigned to the Wizardson Feb. 27.The table seems set for Tylers role to grow with GoldenState now that he's back. Warriors coach Mark Jackson recently replaced center Andris Biedrins inthe starting lineup with Ekpe Udoh.Biedrins has been ineffectual for much of the season, and itseems possible Tyler could at least push Biedrins for minutes at the backupfive spot. At the very least, Tylers return will give the team more depth upfront.The Warriors play the Memphis Grizzlies at Oracle Arena onWednesday.
