The Golden State Warriors are once again dealing with a rash of injuries despite giving fans a brief tease Monday night with a lineup that featured Andrew Bogut and Stephen Curry on the floor for the first time since early November.
Curry remains day-to-day after he rolled his surgically repaired right ankle in the third quarter of the Warriors’ win Monday night in Toronto against the Raptors. According to reports on Twitter from Warriors beat reporter Marcus Thompson for Bay Area News, the team officially listed him as questionable for Tuesday night’s game in Cleveland against the Cavs, who also might be shorthanded as Kyrie Irving was sent home from shootaround with the flu.
News of Curry’s status is just another chapter in the frustrating narrative for the Warriors this season. The sharpshooter had two surgeries in the offseason and missed a number of games throughout the year because of repeated ankle sprains. The initial diagnosis for his latest injury is that he has a “mild” ankle sprain and will remain day-to-day.
Bogut will reportedly sit out against Cleveland on Tuesday night, according to a tweet from Cavs play-by-play announcer John Michael. It’s unclear whether he suffered a setback in the win against Toronto or if it’s more of a night off to allow him to slowly come back from a lingering left ankle injury.
At 27-17, the Warriors are currently second in the Pacific Division behind the Los Angeles Clippers.
