Golden State Warriors vs San Antonio Spurs: Lineups, preview & prediction 3/19/18

San Antonio Spurs vs. Golden State Warriors - 3/19/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

It was the fourth ankle injury of the season for Curry. I think it goes without saying how hard the defending champs are to beat on their home court.

Curry, who missed most of December with a right ankle sprain, reinjured his ankle against the Spurs on March 9 (AEDT) when he stepped on Dejounte Murray's ankle after attempting a fast-break lay-up. Injuries that plague them now, could plague them in May and the Warriors are aiming for their core players, especially Curry to be healthy for another title run. The last three were less out of medical necessity than an abundance of caution. "He has had a history of ankle issues and although his latest scare was not considered serious, the Warriors wanted to give him ample time to recover with the postseason around the corner".

However, recent reports seem to indicate that the Warriors aren't likely to be quite as banged-up when the Jazz come to town after all. Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green are also sidelined with injuries and remain a doubt for the game on Friday.

Real Madrid planning for a future with Neymar, ready to spend €300m
Al-Khelaifi said Neymar is "very happy, really motivated and enthusiastic about the idea of returning as soon as possible". Do you think Nike and Los Blancos could pull a deal like this off? Neymar swapped Catalonia for PSG in the summer.

The Warriors are now 3.5 games back of the Rockets for the No. 1 seed in the West, but have an 8.5-game cushion over Portland for the No. 2 spot.

If he is able to meet his goal and play against the Hawks on Friday, it will be interesting to see how he looks in that contest as a potential precursor for his performance against the Jazz.

Curry, however, was not the only injury concern for coach Steve Kerr going into the game against the Hawks. Golden State has the next three nights off, so Friday is the earliest that Curry could get back on the court.
