Are the Warriors playing Steph Curry too much early in the season?credit: warriorsworld.net The Golden State Warriors have their future hinging on Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry’s health. More specifically, their ankles. In the case of Andrew Bogut, his broken left ankle is just another of what has seemed to be a series of freak accidents over his career. But in the case of Stephen Curry, his right ankle sprains have been a recurring problem and continue to cast a dark mist over the future of the franchise. The Warriors are certainly being cautious with Andrew Bogut, letting him rest for the next 7-10 days to make sure he doesn’t re-injure the ankle or make things worse. But in the case of Stephen Curry, they may not be cautious enough. Right now, Stephen Curry is averaging north of 38 minutes per game, which leaves him with only 10 minutes to rest each game. One of the things that you have to do with a guy like Curry is monitor his minutes closely and not make him play any more than he needs to. 38 minutes per game is a lot to ask of a guy night in and night out who is just coming off a serious right ankle injury. Even more puzzling is the fact that the Warriors have added Jarrett Jack to their squad, who is a very solid point guard. There is no reason why the Warriors can’t cut back Curry’s minutes to 32 minutes per game and allow more time for Jarrett Jack and Klay Thompson to play together in the back court. I understand the Warriors want to win games and stay competitive. But they need to see the bigger picture here, and understand that it’s better to have Stephen Curry play 5-6 less minutes per game if it means keeping him out of a suit and tie.
