    Getty Atlanta Hawks star Trae Young and forward De'Andre Hunter react during a game against the Brooklyn Nets. Although the Golden State Warriors have the more complete roster entering their West Finals series against the Mavs, Dallas may just have the biggest arrow in their quiver in Luka Doncic. It’s a big statement to make when Steph Curry is on the other side, but the numbers bear it out. Through 10 postseason appearances, Doncic was averaging 31.5 points per contest — the second-best mark among playoff participants — while adding 10.1 rebounds, 6.6 assists and 1.9 steals. The three-time All-Star’s presence looms over the series to such a degree, in fact, that Bleacher Report’s Greg Swartz just pitched a Warriors deal as part of his latest feature, which aimed to identify the “one trade every NBA team in the conference finals wishes it could make now,” with the aim of stopping Luka. Depending on how one views some of the Dubs’ youngsters, though, it’s a trade that will pique the interest of some as an actual move this...
    Getty Golden State Warriors wing Jordan Poole takes the ball to the hoop against De'Anthony Melton during a playoff game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Jordan Poole has definitely made a name for himself throughout the 2021-22 campaign, but the Golden State Warriors wing has been in a bit of a funk more recently. Over his last two games, the 22-year-old has averaged just 8.5 points per outing on 27.8% shooting overall and 16.7% from three-point range. Meanwhile, he’s averaging a team-worst four turnovers a game over the same span. That’s obviously a far cry from what Dubs fans saw when Poole was thriving in relief of an injured Steph Curry as the club’s lead guard. Still, there’s no doubting the fact that Poole has cemented himself as a cornerstone piece for the Warriors. And, recent struggles aside, he has arguably been Golden State’s best postseason performer not named Steph. As such, one outlet saw fit to stamp him with a particularly weighty label with regard to the Warriors’ plan of attack this summer.B/R: Poole Is Dubs’ Biggest Offseason...
    Getty Golden State Warriors owner Joe Lacob and team president Bob Myers look on during a game against the Denver Nuggets. Steve Kerr’s bout with COVID-19 notwithstanding, the Golden State Warriors are in great shape ahead of their Wednesday showdown with the Grizzlies. Despite some horrendous shooting in Game 4, the Dubs were still able to take a 3-1 series lead, meaning Memphis would have to win three straight contests without star Ja Morant in order to survive the West semifinal. Still, Golden State has at least one major issue to contend with going forward. Namely, Gary Payton II’s stay on the injured list as a result of an elbow fracture suffered during Game 2. Although Payton is averaging just 15.8 minutes per contest in the postseason, he has been incredibly impactful when he has been on the court. Through seven games, he’s shooting 72.7% overall and 75% from three while rocking the team’s No. 3 D-rating at 106.3. If you’ve been watching Warriors basketball this season, though, Payton’s playoff performance is hardly surprising. All year long, he...
    SAN FRANCISCO — The Warriors had a late addition to their injury report Wednesday ahead of Game 5 of their first-round series against the Denver Nuggets. Andre Iguodala was ruled out for Wednesday night’s game at Chase Center with a neck injury. Specifically, he’s listed as having a left cervical disc injury. The Warriors said Iguodala will be re-evaluated in one week, meaning he would miss Game 6 and 7 of Golden State, which leads the series 3-1, can’t take care of business Wednesday. “It’s a huge loss for us,” coach Steve Kerr said after shootaround. “He’s a guy that’s been through everything and seen it all in his career and played a million playoff games for us, knows exactly what’s going on… Played him at the small-ball five, he’s one of our best passers so it’s a big loss.” Andrew Wiggins echoed Kerr’s sentiment. Iguodala, 38, had missed Game 2 with neck spasms that flared up after shootaround. He missed 19 games in the second half of the season with a lower back injury before returning for the final...
    Getty Otto Porter Jr. #32 of the Golden State Warriors points The Chicago Bulls could turn to a familiar face to solve their lack of perimeter shooting in Golden State Warriors forward and former third-overall pick, Otto Porter. A member of the Bulls from 2019 to 2021, Porter was traded to Orlando during the 2021 season in the deal that also sent Wendell Carter Jr. to the Magic and brought back Nikola Vucevic. Now, the nine-year NBA veteran is set to be an unrestricted free agent following a season spent mostly coming off of the bench for the Golden State Warriors. Chicago is coming off their largest margin of defeat in franchise history, a game in which they struggled from beyond the arc for the second time in three games. The Bulls connected on just 7-of-37 looks from deep in Game 1 and 9-of-34 in Game 3. In between, they got a win on the road in Game 2 while knocking down 12-of-25 triples so there is a problematic theme. Bleacher Report’s Zach Buckley thinks Porter Jr. is...
    SAN FRANCISCO — Steph Curry will come off the bench for Game 2 of the Warriors’ playoff series against the Denver Nuggets. Curry also came off the bench in Golden State’s Game 1 win on Saturday after being sidelined for a month with a right foot sprain and bone bruise. The 34-year-old scored 16 points with three 3-pointers in 22 minutes. Jordan Poole will start again Curry’s place, a role he embraced with a team-leading 30-point effort in Game 1. Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney will start on Monday night as the Warriors try to take a 2-0 lead in this first-round series. In his eighth career playoff run, this is the first time that Curry will start off the bench in consecutive playoff games. “It was nice to get back out there,” Curry said after the 123-107 win Saturday night. “It was nice to feel a playoff vibe again. Obviously, it’s different coming off the bench and trying to make the most of the minutes that are appropriate right now and had to kind of...
    Getty Klay Thompson celebrates with Jordan Poole during a game between the Golden State Warriors and Miami Heat. The Golden State Warriors clearly have some things to work through before postseason play commences. First and foremost, they must rediscover their mojo on the defensive end. It would also help if they could somehow keep everyone healthy and performing at peak level. That said, there’s at least one Warriors player who has consistently been on the court and playing like a man possessed. Namely, breakout wing Jordan Poole, who put up a career-high 10 assists — to go with 24 points — during Golden State’s Friday loss to the Hawks. Over the last 12 games, Poole has averaged a team-leading 25.5 points and 5.3 assists per outing. Meanwhile, he has shot 52.7% from the floor and 48.2% from three-point range.

    Getty Zaza Pachulia and Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors celebrate following their Game 4 victory over the Cleveland cavaliers during the 2018 NBA Finals. After rocking the NBA through the first half of the 2021-22 campaign, the Golden State Warriors suddenly find themselves in a tough spot entering postseason play. The reason: superstar Stephen Curry has been shelved for at least the next few weeks with a sprained ligament in his left foot. As a result, there’s a growing concern about the Dubs’ ability to maintain their status as a top-three seed in the Western Conference. If Golden State is to enter the playoff fray on any semblance of a high note, it will need multiple ballers to step up. To that end, Jordan Poole is being asked to shoulder more of the load than most. And, so far, he’s coming through with flying colors.

    Getty Golden State Warriors wing Andrew Wiggins handles the ball during a game against the Phoenix Suns. With just a game and a half separating them from the Suns in the standings, the Golden State Warriors continue to be within reaching distance of the NBA‘s best record. However, there’s no doubting the fact that things have been rough in the Bay Area recently. The Warriors are in the midst of a four-losses-in-five-games stretch. Over that span, they’re getting outscored by 6.8 points per possession while ranking dead last league-wide in offensive rating (96.4) and effective field goal percentage (45.8). Meanwhile, they’re No. 29 in assist-to-turnover ratio (1.42:1) as well. As bad as they have been as a team, though, star wing Andrew Wiggins continues to perform at a high level. For the year, the former No. 1 overall pick is putting up 18.6 points and 4.3 rebounds per game while hitting a career-best 48.6% of his shot attempts and 42.1% deep. And he has continued to post similar numbers amid Golden State’s recent slump. Wiggins’ steady play hasn’t...
    Getty Golden State Warriors wing Andrew Wiggins handles the ball during a game against the Phoenix Suns. The Golden State Warriors have handled their brush with a league-wide COVID-19 outbreak better than most. On Christmas Day, the club outlasted the Phoenix Suns and subsequently moved into the No. 1 spot in the West. That win was the Warriors’ sixth in seven tries. That’s not to say, that Golden State hasn’t incurred some major losses on the roster front. On December 26, Draymond Green — who is in the midst of what might be an All-Star campaign — became the latest Warrior to hit health and safety protocols. More recently, though, the team got some good news on the coronavirus front. On Monday, Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins both cleared protocols, per The Athletic’s Shams Charania and Anthony Slater. However, the players have differing statuses for the Warriors’ Tuesday night bout with the Denver Nuggets.Who Will Play Against the Nuggets?

    Getty Steve Kerr speaks to Golden State Warriors players during a game against the Brooklyn Nets. The Golden State Warriors were at the center of several high profile trade rumors leading up to the NBA draft. But after draft night ended absent any blockbuster moves in the Bay Area, the team kicked off free agency with what feels like a modest, but potentially meaningful, signing of a two-way contributor. The first day of free agency, Monday, Aug. 2, was not absent a bevy of big name signings. Former Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry joined the Miami Heat on a three-year deal, while Chris Paul wrote what appears to be the final chapter of his career by resigning with the Phoenix Suns for four more seasons. The Warriors, on the other hand, didn’t make a huge splash. But they weren’t idle either, locking down Otto Porter Jr. to a minimum contract to add to their perimeter depth. Chris Haynes, of Yahoo Sports, broke the news of the signing Monday night. Free agent forward Otto Porter Jr. has reached an...
    According to the latest NBA rumors, the Golden State Warriors may be interested in Otto Porter Jr. Stephen Curry is in the midst of one of his best seasons ever, but there’s just one problem: With Klay Thompson sidelined, the Golden State Warriors don’t have much hope of seriously contending for a championship this season. Last year was supposed to be the lost season, with Kevin Durant leaving in free agency and Thompson sidelined by the torn ACL he sustained in the 2019 NBA Finals. Instead, Thompson’s recovery was derailed by a torn Achilles, and since then Curry and Draymond Green have been picking up the slack for an inconsistent, young core of Kelly Oubre Jr., Andrew Wiggins and rookie James Wiseman. It was no surprise to hear rumblings that the Warriors are eyeing a potential trade for Houston Rockets guard Victor Oladipo, who would provide them with an additional ball-handler much like the role Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston used to fill. However, that’s not the only wing the Dubs have on their radar. According to The Ringer’s Kevin...
    The Golden State Warriors have options with the No. 2 pick. In all likelihood, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft will be traded somewhere else. With a healthy Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson back on the court this season, the Golden State Warriors are looking to reignite the dynastic fires that ravaged the league countryside for half a decade. He’ll have to get stronger since he’s slightly undersized at 6-foot-9, but if he can do so, and if his perimeter shot develops to match his interior touch, he could very easily wind up being the best big man to come out of this draft class. 5. Deni Avdija, wing, Maccabi Tel Aviv, Big Board Rank: 8 As we’ve repeatedly emphasized, smart playmaking and crisp decision-making are staples of the Golden State Warriors. As a 6-foot-9 wing with the skills of a guard, Deni Avdija could be a natural fit in the Bay, even if the second overall pick might be a bit of a reach for him. If the Warriors trade down a few spots, however,...
