Game Preview and Prediction: San Antonio Spurs at Golden State Warriors

Draymond battling ligament issue in finger, unsure about missing time

Stephen Curry will miss at least three months for the ailing Warriors because of a broken left hand that required surgery, the toughest blow yet in an already hard season for struggling Golden State following five straight trips to the National Basketball Association finals.

Friday's game was the first of the Warriors without star guard Stephen Curry, who broke his hand two nights earlier against the Suns.

After the game, his left wrist and index finger were wrapped and Green told reporters that it was a ligament problem.

"I hurt my finger". "I couldn't grip the ball the whole entire [game], probably since the second quarter, which is why I was making a lot of one-handed, right-handed passes and dribbling left with my right hand". I don't know (about Saturday), we'll see.

He referenced Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, who Kerr played under during his own career, as a leader who knew how to put seemingly disastrous situations into perspective for his players.

Draymond Green has become the latest victim of the Golden State Warriors' injury jinx after suffering torn ligaments in his finger, coach Steve Kerr confirmed on Saturday.

Russell rolled his ankle during Friday night's loss to San Antonio and woke up sore, Kerr said.

Ideally, Russell only misses one game against a rebuilding Charlotte Hornets team.

Not too long ago, it seemed hard to imagine when the Warriors' dynasty might end, but now it's hard to see how they'll even make the playoffs this season.

Now, both Splash Brothers are on the sidelines, leaving Golden State thin in the backcourt while facing a 1-3 record and just trying to stay in games. They have the sixth-worst rating in the league, and that figures to further plummet without Green.

"Right now, he's kind of the lone survivor, so he's got to help all these young guys and teach them what we've been about, help to mentor them, and the most important thing is to carry on with the way we've gone about our business over the last five years-plus", Kerr said. After all, it did work out for the Spurs in 1996-97.
