Golden State Drained?
Today the golden state warriors use a 6 MAN rotation with 3 players playing 48 minutes which is insane and 2 of them almost fouled out. Ive heard of an injury plagued team but this is pretty ridculous. I bet the mavricks feel like crap right now losing to a team with only 6 players
That many of their players are hurt?
They played 6 players but Corey Maggette's box said DNP-Coach's Decision... But to win with just 6 guys playing... That's a lot of guts...
I copied and pasted this directly from the Yahoo! Sports page.
F Brandan Wright (torn labrum) underwent surgery Oct. 9. His recovery time is estimated to be six months, so there's a good chance he won't play at all in 2009-10.
C Andris Biedrins (strained groin and abdominal muscles) was told to take two weeks off after experiencing what he thought was back pain in the Nov. 7 loss at Sacramento. He will be re-evaluated Monday and could miss additional time.
C Ronny Turiaf (sprained left knee) has progressed slowly after suffering the injury Oct. 30. An MRI revealed no damage. Warriors coach Don Nelson told reporters Tuesday that he expects Biedrins to return before Turiaf, which means the backup center could miss most of the rest of the month.
F Kelenna Azubuike (torn patella tendon) had surgery in Phoenix on Wednesday and will miss the rest of the season.
G Raja Bell (torn wrist ligament) flew to Charlotte to have surgery on his left wrist. The procedure is tentatively scheduled for next week. It's possible he could return in as little as a month, but more likely he will miss most—if not all—of the rest of the season.
G C.J. Watson (swine flu) returned to the San Francisco Bay Area after last Saturday's loss at Milwaukee and tested positive for swine flu. He has missed the last three games and the Warriors aren't sure when he'll return. They hope to have him back for their next game—Tuesday at Dallas.
F Devean George (sore left knee) has yet to see action in the regular season. His injury is not considered serious.
G Speedy Claxton (knee) is unlikely to play this season.
They have a back-to-back tonight against the Spurs
Wonder how those 48 minute legs will hold up again tonight...
I bet on sports for a living and the line is at +13.5 right now for the Warriors. I'm taking the Spurs but probably buying a couple of points. I think Duncan will have a huge game tonight and McD could have his best game of the season...
yeah you dont see how much it takes effect untill the back to back or next game...you can get away with it for a game maybe even 2 but after that those legs wont be able to produce like they would when you play 30min
Wow, that's crazy. They have alot of injuries and Dallas ought to be shamed....lost to a squad with a 6-man rotation lol
