Chris Paul fractures hand, out indefinitely
Surgery reportedly will occur next week
The Golden State Warriors have another fresh problem. Chris Paul sustained an injury during the Warriors win over the Detroit Pistons on Friday, and never returned from the locker room. Turns out, it's a fracture that is serious enough to require surgery.
Anthony Slater goes on to report that Kerr says the extended absence means some extra Podziemski and Cory Joseph at point guard, but also (and this ia the fun part) Moses Moody's return to the rotation: "I'm excited to get Moses back out there...Great to hear the fans chanting his name."
Details are sparse at time of writing but Paul has been solid for Golden State this season and this will certainly cause some changes to the rotation that won't necessarily be all good.
It's just my personal opinion here, but I think it's a safe guess to bet that this will hasten the return of Draymond Green.
