Another loss on the road, but this one hurts extra
New space to vent/process Steph's injury: https://dubnationhq.com/p/steph-curry-suffers-shoulder-subluxation?sd=pf
Wiggins cleared to practice:
This is why you don't trick off 7 easy games this year.
Was never content with the 'if we just won 3 more games, we'd be 1st place' narrative.
How many games does a player need to play to be considered for mvp? In the chance that Steph comes back and we get into a top 4 seed he should have a decent chance, but wondering if he needs to meet a minimum amount of games played.
The Warriors will also remain without Andrew Wiggins tomorrow night against the Sixers, I'm told. It'll be his sixth straight missed game with an adductor strain.
Golden State Warriors All-NBA star Stephen Curry has sustained a labral injury in his left shoulder and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium.
Welp, but I didn't think we had much of a shot last season either.
If we can get it together for a run next year I won't be too sad, it's a long season and the vets are just getting older.
Sit everyone on a road back to back and rest up, play JK until he fouls out and figure out who to keep for next season.
If anything, if were still in it come Feb it will be interesting to see the growth of the youth movement with the vets when they get back.
No better time to call up Wiseman than now
When Curry missed the last remaining games of last season due to foot injury, here's how the Warriors did:
@ Celtics- loss
vs. Spurs- loss
@ Magic- loss
@ Heat - win
@ Hawks- loss
@ Wizards- loss
@ Grizzlies- loss
vs. Suns- loss
vs. Jazz- win
@ Kings- win (Kings had a depleted roster)
vs. Lakers- win (Lakers were playing their backups)
@ Spurs- win (Spurs were playing their backups)
@ Pelicans- win (Pelicans were resting their starters)
I guess now we wait for Wiggins' re-evaluation today
Woj is saying "a few weeks". Damn Damn Damn 😭
Why is icing an injury still a thing in professional sports? Is it not now well accepted that inflammation is an important part of the healing process and ice shouldn't be applied for more than 5 minutes at a time, if at all?
Just listened to the light years podcast interview with Dr Pandaya. He says there are four scenarios. Best case is a stinger which is day to day. Next worse is muscle strain which would be around a 2 week recovery. Next worse is subluxation which Dr says is a partial dislocation where the shoulder starts to pop out, but not fully. Subluxation would be around a month long recovery. Full dislocation would be 8-12 week. They should know severity after MRI.
Pretty interesting article. Basically sayinf poetl will be amongst the most coveted trade acquisition targets leading up to the trade deadline with Toronto the lead horse potentially. Guess we can forget a Poetl-Wiseman trade straight up.
No news about Curry's injury ☹️. It's already afternoon in Indiana. I keep checking internet every 15 min.
I posted this during half-time in yesterday's game. Guess, Kerr didn't get it.

Steph Is the only one making the effort and the shots. Kerr should just sit him for the rest of the game to avoid any injury. It looks like a lost cause anyway.
