Prior to the start of the season, Steph Curry sarcastically apologized for the Warriors’ health. He grew tired of people almost giving them a hard time for remaining healthy on their quest for a title. And a few weeks ago, LeBron said the Warriors were the healthiest team he has ever seen. That can certainly be taken as a slight, since the general consensus is that if the Cavs were healthy in the Finals, they would’ve been crowned champs.
But now this championship roster has to deal with a little adversity. Harrison Barnes went down with a sprained ankle Friday night in a win at Phoenix. Will this cause them to finally lose?
“He’s being evaluated [Saturday]. We haven’t gotten the results back yet,” interim head coach Luke Walton told reporters before Saturday’s game. “It’s all speculation. It could be a few weeks. It could be a week.
“We’re not going to rush him back because we want to be healthy for later in the season and we don’t want lingering injures, so we’ll have him take his time.”
