Golden State is already dealing with injuries seemingly at every position. Stephen Curry has another ankle injury, an ailment that has been an on and off problem. Klay Thompson broke his thumb last week against the Timberwolves and is out for a few weeks as well.
While it is late in the season, it is not all doom and gloom for Golden State. Durant missed 17 games last season before returning with two games left in the regular season. They went on to dominate in the playoffs and win the NBA championship.
