We learned late last week that Steph Curry is expected to miss at least 3-4 week after another ankle injury. Coach Steve Kerr made a pretty definitive statement over the weekend saying that Steph will not play in the first round of the tournament.
Ben Maller doesn't think it should matter either way. This Warriors team was constructed with the purpose of being able to withstand losing one of their main guys. If they stumble in the first couple of rounds, that's an indictment of Durant & all the other Warriors.
