Chriss originally signed with the Warriors in October. He averaged 7.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists across 37 appearances (three starts) before being let go last week.
"I'm alright, man," Chriss told Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area about the Dubs' release. "It's in God's hands. It's going to be his decision to put me where I need to be to succeed in my life ... like I said, it's God's plan."
Golden State waived the 22-year-old California native in order to open a spot on its 15-man roster for shooting guard Damion Lee, who has taken on a major role because of the team's backcourt injury woes.
The moves, including the expected return of Chriss, give the front office more flexibility:
With the Warriors owning the NBA's second-worst record at 9-32, both Lee and Chriss should continue to receive ample playing time. The two-way deal means the University of Washington product will also see stints with the G League's Santa Cruz Warriors.
It's unclear exactly when the forward will rejoin the Dubs.
