The Warriors appear to be headed toward a disastrous season.
Is it too early to start considering how a high lottery pick could jump start them? The easy comparison: The 1996-97 Spurs, who lost David Robinson to injury then drafted Tim Duncan No. 1 and began a dynasty. Lottery luck is overlooked in that situation, though.
There might not be happy ending for Golden State. There will almost certainly be a dismal several weeks ahead.
The Warriors fell behind 47-14 to the Suns.
Then, it got worse for Golden State.
Stephen Curry left the game after suffering an apparent wrist injury when very-large Phoenix center Aron Baynes landed on him.
Because he didn’t shoot the ensuing free throws, Curry is ineligible to return tonight. That could be a moot point, anyway. That injury looked severe.
The Warriors were already facing major problems. Curry being sidelined for a while could take them completely out of competing for the playoffs.
