Sprain, no fracture or major damage, but Steph could miss weeks

OT: Bracket busted so bad on day one of the NCAA Tournament that I can switch from rooting for the teams I picked to routing against them - going for the worst bracket possible. Sometimes you just want to see the world burn.
Don't know if there are any Raiders/football fans in here but what a crazy offseason so far!
If Poole will be taking over much of Steph’s role, will he also get all the grabbing/double teaming that Steph usually sees? Can he handle it, I wonder?
Just watching the highlights of Wiseman in Santa Cruz. I know it's the gleague but he is looking pretty good. Is it time to have him playing with us considering Steph's injury? Can it really hurt if we try? He looks physically ready and if he has a 15-20 minute restriction, doesn't sound so unreasonable to me. Without Steph, we are going to struggle and Draymond certainly knows how to get the most out of JW.

DETROIT WON!!!!! WOO-h.......
First Kyrie 60, now Saddiq Bey with 51 points against the Magic today. We shall see what JP does on Tuesday then.
Ot: something I’ve always liked about the atmosphere here (as it’s traveled from site to site) is that there’s a general concern for players/people and how sucky it is to see someone get hurt. Over at sbnation Celtics site, there’s just zero concern of “hate to see a player go down”, just shitty tone. Saying a little toast to the humanity and non toxicity of dnhq

This brief discussion made me feel a lot less worried about the situation
I mean all ankle sprains involve sprained ligaments. The fact that he had to get an MRI for this and is now seeing a specialist is concerning. Though given the warriors history with divulging accurate, not vague info about injuries who knows
Let's look on the bright side. This essentially eliminates the change of Steph suffering a major (basketball related) injury prior to the playoffs!
Man, this sucks. Is there an update on moody? (Unlike all you retired 93 year olds posting all day, or 27 year old techies “retire young and move to Idaho”, I had to work today 😀)
On a happier note, finally the press is reporting on Fitz and Fitz lite’s reporting. https://www.sfgate.com/warriors/article/time-to-dump-Warriors-TV-announcers-17003718.php
At the rim: 71%

If Poole can continue playing well while Curry is out for the rest of the regular season, I can see the Warriors going at least .500 or better for the final 12 games of the season.
