Not sure if he will be back for the first round. Seems like the Warriors have more injuries this season than they had in the previous 3 years combined.

He may be back. There are 3 weeks left in the season. I hope the ankle is at least 90% ready. Steph had Bynum luck. A teammate Javale McGee fell on his leg. I can hear Shaq.

It was sad to see happen. Glad it's not as bad as it could be.

Warriors should focus on recovery now. #1 seed isn't happening; they're 4 games behind the Rockets and the only teams that can still pass them in the standings are Boston and Toronto. They wouldn't need HCA against Toronto and Kyrie is pretty much ruled for the rest of the regular season as well.

Jazz spanked the Dubs tonight 110 91. GS missing Steph, Klay, Draymond and Durant.

Number 1 seed is not as important as getting healthy. Make the playoffs healthy and I think the Larry O'Brien is a good bet.

Utah is not going to be a easy out in the playoffs.

I have no doubt we will see KD become the undisputed best player in the league again once the playoffs start.

Boo hoo. So the Warriors are down to only 3 all NBA players instead of 4. Please cry us a river!

This is what happens to teams that make it to the finals so often. After four years of deep playoff runs, your guys have basically played an extra year of professional basketball in a very short period of time. It takes a toll on bodies.

This is why other teams should NOT sit idly by because they can't compete with the Warriors when they are at full strength. If you can compete with them when they have an injury or two, it may be enough to make some other player, a difference maker, to sign with you to get you over that hump.

Being the team that takes the Warriors down would be a great trophy to place on your mantle.

2 additional months for 3 consecutive years. Thats basically another NBA regular season.

Durant, Thompson, Green, Thompson, Livingston, Iguodala, West. Yes it'll be more difficult without Curry but if healty doable.

They are capable of winning it without Curry, no doubt, but it will be much tougher on them. Curry has had a history of health problems. He may be that guy that remains spotty for them as the years progress. Without him, they may still be the best but they are vulnerable.

It would be great to see someone knock them off.

Watch out for Cleveland. They're currently in the 3rd spot in the Eastern Conference standings. I have them winning the Eastern finals.

Western finals is the toughest row to hoe. If things go according to Hoyle Harden will falter, CP3 hasn't gotten past the semifinals.

I'm still on the Cleveland vs Golden State in the NBA Championship Finals train. Got the Dubs bringing home the Larry O'Brien.

I don't think they get past Houston without Curry. As long as GSW is healthy by the 2nd round I'm still picking them to win the world championship. But we're seeing how hard it is to reach the finals 4 years in a row. Kobe was banged up when we tried to do it in 2011, and he wasn't able to go on his usual scoring binges. The Celtics were also really banged up that one year in the mid 80s when they reached the finals for a 4th straight time and the old Lakers ran them out of the gym.

Dude is made of glass. With him out of the first round, the Timberwolves might have a shot at an upset.

Good thing they are playing the Kawhi-less Spurs.

Forgot they weren't the #1 seed for once.

If Kawhi were healthy though, they'd be in a ton of trouble.
