Actually, Stephen Curry will play his second game after returning from a groin injury that has kept him on the sideline for weeks.
But there are still a number of holes in the rotation for coach Steve Kerr and the Warriors to figure out against an Atlanta Hawks team that leads the league in pace of play.
In case you’ve been away from the internet this weekend, Jones tore his pectoral muscle on a fairly innocuous-looking play at the end of the 3rd quarter against the Detroit Pistons an injury that will keep him out months, if not the rest of the season.
This is the other side of the same muscle that Jones tore in training camp as a rookie, and as Kerr said on Sunday, “a big setback for him..and for us.”
No indications yet who will get the start in Jones’ stead against Atlanta and their starter
Alex Len, a mobile seven-footer with just enough beef to make it a problematic matchup for both Jordan Bell and Kevon Looney.
It looks like Draymond Green will not be returning to action during this road trip, but Alfonzo McKinnie may be back as early as Wednesday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
While the Warriors have plenty of firepower, they are slowly losing the three point shooting war against the league.
In spite of having two of the best three shooters of all time, Golden State finds themselves consistently outshot from deep.
I’m not sure what this will look like, exactly, but with one less non-shooting big man available
We could see Kerr get funky and start chasing threes by abandoning the traditional Center position all together.
This has reliably been one of his big ‘AH-HAH!’ moves working most famously in the playoffs but seemingly just as pertinent during the regular season.
Without Jones, the Warriors are going to be forced to play smaller a modification that could serendipitously result in a solution to some of the ugly offense we’ve seen lately.
I mean… that header pretty much says it all. The Atlanta Hawks are not having a great season. Heck, they’re not even having a good one!
But what they do manage to do well could give the Warriors fits.
The Hawks aren’t elite at much, but they lead the league in pace and are third-best at forcing turnovers.
While the Warriors have Curry back in the fold, it did not immediately solve all their problems.
The team ranks 20th in the league for total three pointers attempted asked about this issue after the most recent loss to Detroit
Kerr strongly indicated that changing this would be a high priority moving forward.
We already have Stephen Curry back on the court, which will help alleviate some of the pace and space issues that have been the bane of Warriors basketball since he left. But we’ll get to that in a minute.
