Warriors have missed Curry

His absence has coincided with the most tumultuous tenure the Warriors have experienced since the their championship run began in 2015.

Internal feuding, on-court losing

Golden State has gone 5-5 since his injury and seen public and private bickering between Kevin Durant and Draymond Green dominate the headlines.

The internal feud began after a Nov. 12 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers when Green declined to give the ball to Durant at the end of regulation for a potential game-winner and Durant admonished him on the court.

The on-court conflict continued to the locker room where Green reportedly brought Durant’s impending free agency into play and called him a bitch, ultimately resulting in a one-game suspension handed down by the team.

Draymond Green still out

Green has since missed time with a sprained toe, which Kerr expects to keep him sidelined for the next couple of games. The Warriors have looked uncharacteristically vulnerable during the 10-game stretch, but have rallied to win three straight.

With Curry set to return to the lineup, Golden State could soon be back to its old dominant ways.
