But the task is still at hand so we move forward," coach Mark Jackson said.MRI results showed a torn right hip flexor. Read More
OAKLAND — One word was repeated by Warriors forward David Lee over and over on Thursday. When Stephen Curry used the same word in describing the team’s plan in their playoff series against the Denver Nuggets, which begins Saturday, it was clear the team knew how they want to approach what will be the first playoff game for most of them.

More than a third of the season has passed, and the Warriors have emerged as the most surprising story in the NBA. They have compiled a 21-10 record, shown the ability to win on the road and dramatically improved defensively.

OAKLAND — Coach Mark Jackson said Saturday’s overtime loss to the Los Angeles Lakers wasn’t going to dampen the team’s Christmas spirit, saying that the Warriors are “very excited about where we are and are thrilled about where we’re headed.”While a big part of that optimism is coming from All-Star-caliber seasons from Stephen Curry and David Lee, an argument could be made that the most important player for the Warriors has been coming off the bench this season.

The moment Mark Jackson saw Stephen Curry return to the court in September for the first time since the point guard’s most recent right ankle surgery, he had an epiphany.Not the kind that comes to Jackson when he preaches from the pulpit for his ministry.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Unlike his previous two trips to Charlotte, Stephen Curry said he didn’t have any butterflies as he stepped on the court Monday night.

When news surfaced Tuesday that Warriors center Andrew Bogut wouldn’t be making the team’s upcoming road trip starting Friday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, only one thought came to mind: Good.
While it certainly means Bogut will be out longer than the seven to 10 days Golden State laid out Nov. 8 for the Aussie big man to rest his surgically repaired left ankle, it’s a refreshing sign of caution. That’s something that obviously hasn’t been exercised with Bogut and that precious ankle up to this point.
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 night. He had five assists and three rebounds. Read More
