Recently, the Golden State Warriors slipped out of the 2nd Seeds in the Western Conference, where they spent a good chunk of the regular season. The team had suffered a 123-115 loss to the Washington Wizards on March 23approx2022. They are currently on a three-game losing streak and teams are chasing their place in the 3rd divisionapprox seed.
The Dubs had an exceptional run in the first half of the season without Klay Thompson, which made their future all the more angsty. Stephen Curry has been in great form during this period, scoring 29.1 points per game over the period. Eventually, Thompson made his debut for the Warriors only to suffer more injuries.
The Golden State Warriors are facing another injury streak that leaves their title fight in doubt
On January 9thth, Klay has been announced to make his long-awaited return after suffering two serious injuries that kept him away for two years. Unfortunately, Draymond Green suffered a back injury that prevented the Warriors from debuting the three-title trio together. Green was paused for nearly two months and regrouped on March 7thth after approval by the coaching staff.
On March 17thth, the Warriors faced another terrible loss after Stephen Curry went down with an ankle injury. In a loose ball game, Curry collided with Boston Celtics guard Marcus Smart, twisting his ankle in the process. Luckily, the greatest marksman of all time didn’t suffer any serious structural damage, giving the Warriors hope for his return during the playoffs.
Speaking about Curry’s return, Steve Kerr said: “I spoke to Steph yesterday and he’s kind of still in rehab. He’s not on the pitch yet, but everything is going well. They will be careful and make sure everything is fine until he really gets back on the pitch and starts chasing him. It hasn’t happened yet, but it shouldn’t be too far away.”
The Golden State Warriors players are responsible for the team’s recent setback
Since Curry’s injury, the Warriors have beaten the Miami Heat 1-6 last week. In one of their recent deficits, Klay Thompson took on the crisis the three-time titleholder found himself in. He said: “I gotta get some shots, man. I can’t ball in the air and shoot off the side of the backboard. I have to be better.”
Green had also spoken out about the Warriors’ recent shortcomings and blamed himself for not playing well enough. He said on his podcast: “I got a little backlash from people who know the game. I’m just saying, “Yo, give yourself a break. You’re suffering a very serious injury.” Thanks, I appreciate it, but the reality is I was awful. What will I do to fix this? I will continue to do what I did, put the work into it.”
