Game Thread: No Curry, Green, Toscano-Anderson against Pelicans
But most importantly: will Klay Thompson be back for the next game?
Sometimes these games are the most fun. The Golden State Warriors are on the tail end of a back-to-back and down a whole slew of players, but the energy is high under the growing weight of Klay Thompson’s return.
Still, even against the struggling New Orleans Pelicans, this is a huge swath of the Warriors’ rotation that isn’t going to be available today. Most important is Curry, who got tripped in the last game and may or may not need additional time off beyond just this one night.
I’ll leave questions about why on Earth Curry doesn’t get more favorable whistles from the referees, and instead just post this screen grab off the above video.
Without all those guys, the Warriors are going to rely heavily on future All Star, Andrew Wiggins. He’s making a strong run in the first release of voting, and will be much needed tonight.
Also, honestly, this starting unit seems like a lot of fun:
Strength in numbers, let’s go!
Well; you go. I’m still working here.
Highlight of the game, no question:
Well that was to be expected. The Regular season starts Sunday right? That should be enough training camp for the rookies and we should only be down one player.
