Ailing team gets no help from refs

Ailing team gets no help from refs After he was whistled for a first-quarter foul Tuesday, Monta Ellis tried a new line of argument with the officials.

"That's a ticky-tack call when we've got only eight guys," Ellis said while Drew Gooden was shooting free throws. "I guess we're not going to get any help."

The Warriors seem to be rallying around an us-against-the-world mentality that has been bred while playing the last four games with an eight-man roster. They realize that any extra help most likely is going to come from their injury-plagued locker room.

"They know we're limited in numbers, and they're making an effort to stick it out," acting coach Keith Smart said. "All of them have bellied up to keep the team floating while all of these injuries are here.

"They've all pitched in and said, 'I can't leave my teammates out there alone.' "

The Warriors have already lost Brandan Wright shoulder and Kelenna Azubuike knee for the season, and Raja Bell wrist will have surgery in the next couple of days that could sideline him for the season. Speedy Claxton knee and Devean George knee haven't been able to play yet.

Andris Biedrins back/groin is traveling with the team but won't be re-evaluated until Monday, and Ronny Turiaf knee is still rehabbing. The Warriors are hopeful that C.J. Watson H1N1 virus will be able to meet them in San Antonio today, but it's unclear how many minutes he would be able to play.

"Any time you're coming back from a flu, you may be back in body, but you don't know where his conditioning is," Smart said. "You're talking about going from zero, to maybe shooting at the YMCA, to playing against the Spurs.

"We won't deal with that until we're able to see him and see where he's at."

Nelson update: Coach Don Nelson pneumonia isn't with the team for its Texas swing, and he could miss as many as five games. The Warriors said results from an H1N1 test will come back in the next couple of days, and if Nelson has the swine flu, he'd be quarantined from the team through its game at Denver on Dec. 1.
