Pat McCaw suffers fracture in wrist

Pat McCaw suffered a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist and will be re-evaluated in four weeks, the Warriors announced.

He will be in a cast for 10 days. 

The injury took place during Monday night's win over the Suns.

In the first half against Phoenix, McCaw scored nine points in less than eight minutes of action.

Early in the third quarter, the Warriors announced that McCaw would not return because of a sprained right wrist.

From last Thursday through Monday, the 22-year old played in five games in five nights -- three games with Golden State and two with the Santa Cruz Warriors.

McCaw is averaging 3.7 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 51 games (six starts) this season.

He is shooting 44 percent overall and 25 percent from 3-point territory.

McCaw will be a restricted free agent this summer.

LeBron James says the Cavs 'have a fu**ing squad now'

Hours before the trade deadline, Cleveland made wholesale changes to its roster.

On Sunday, the new-look Cavs went into Boston and crushed the Celtics, 121-99.

On Monday morning, Dave McMenamin -- who covers the Cavs for ESPN -- shared the following story on Outside the Lines:

"I spoke to JR Smith after the game -- JR, LeBron, Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love -- the only four guys remaining on the Cavs from the championship team in 2016. And JR said they had a conversation on the plane, and he said, 'Man. Look at all these different faces we have now.'

And LeBron said, 'Yeah. But we got a squad now.' And he actually said we have a 'expletive' squad now.'"

From Dec. 19 to Feb. 6, the Cavs went 8-14 and had the second worst defense in the NBA.

There were countless reports of locker room turmoil and one report claimed that LeBron would even entertain meeting with the Warriors this summer in free agency.

Another story detailed how LeBron has no relationship with owner Dan Gilbert or GM Koby Altman.

Then, the trade deadline happened and the Cavs smacked the Celtics.

All it took was one game for the narrative to change drastically...

NBA contacted Joe Lacob about throwing his jacket, 'I have been told...'

NBA contacted Joe Lacob about throwing his jacket, 'I have been told...'

Last Tuesday, the Warriors got smacked at home by the Thunder, 125-105.

Remember this play late in the third quarter?

Did you miss Joe Lacob's reaction to the missed call?

Last Friday, Lacob joined the Murph and Mac show on KNBR 680 and the topic of him throwing his jacket was brought up.

"I have been told not to disrobe in public. Literally," Lacob said.

Adam Silver called the Warriors' owner?

"One of his people," Lacob answered. "I've been really good for a long time and I'm keeping my emotions in check a lot better than I used to. But I just lost it at that moment."

Did the league come after Lacob's wallet?

"No fine. They were pretty nice about it. But they did say, I thought it was pretty funny -- 'Do not disrobe in public.'"

The good news for Lacob -- the Warriors are currently valued at $3.1 billion...
