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.

Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut will be sidelined the next seven to 10 days to rest and strengthen his surgically repaired left ankle.
The announcement Thursday is the kind of setback Bogut and the Warriors were hoping to avoid this season. The 7-footer from Australia was held scoreless while playing 17 minutes in Golden State's 106-96 win against Cleveland on Wednesday...
JUST A BIT SHORT
Take a look at the horrible free throw attempt by Warriors' center Andris Biedrins Friday night. Biedrins is the worst free throw shooter in the NBA right now.Biedrins is so afraid to get on the free throw line that he tries to avoid contact as much as possible when he has the ball in his hands on offense. The only reason he is playing right now is because Andrew Bogut is out...
Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut will be sideline for 7-10 days to allow his surgically repaired ankle more time to heal, the team announced Thursday.

So far Bogut is averaging...
Golden State Warriors center Andrew Bogut will be out for the next seven to 10 days according to Coach Jackson.

"My agent, the doctors and trainers here, they want me playing (at full health...
Earlier in the week on That NBA Lottery Pick, we posted a clip of Lakers center Dwight Howard airballing a free throw against the Utah Jazz.I personally thought that it would be the worst free throw of the year but Golden State's Andris Biedrins will take that award.Watch as he misses this free throw in the first quarter against the Lakers last night:
Golden State’s Andris Biedrins showed us last night against the Lakers why he’s a career 50% free throw shooter. No leg lift, then comes the short-arm form and he doesn’t even tickle the twine with this effort.
Keep in mind, the guy is a 7-footer and the ball only went this far.
The Lakers won 101-77 and Mike Brown lost his coaching job. A solid day all around.
