Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-01-30

Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-01-30
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Monta Ellis, Shooting guard Jamal Crawford, Small forward Kelenna Azubuike, Power forward Stephen Jackson, Center Andris Biedrins. Bench -- Guard C.J. Watson, Guard Anthony Morrow, Forward Corey Maggette, Forward Anthony Randolph, Forward Jermareo Davidson, Forward Rob Kurz, Center Ronny Turiaf.


--G Monta Ellis missed nine of his 11 shots in the Warriors' loss at Dallas on Wednesday, but that wasn't the most disappointing aspect of his 25-minute stint. Ellis, who is making a transition to point guard this season, hasn't topped three assists in any of his three games since returning from ankle surgery. He had three assists against the Mavericks.

--G Jamal Crawford returned from a two-game absence due to a sore knee and scored only three points, missing five of his six shots. If there was good news in the blowout, it was that Crawford could be eased back into the lineup. He played only 23 minutes. His three-point total snapped a string of 14 consecutive games in which he had scored in double-figures (when healthy enough to play).

--F Corey Maggette's belated bid for NBA Sixth Man Award honors continued to gather steam with a 21-point effort in just 23 minutes. The first-year Warrior has poured in 20 or more points in each of his last four games -- all off the bench -- averaging 22.5 points and shooting 53.8 percent (28 of 52) over that stretch.

--C Andris Biedrins was outscored 10-4 by former Warrior Erick Dampier. In a matchup the Warriors had hoped to win, if not dominate, Biedrins had a plus/minus of minus-23 points during his 26 minutes, while Dampier was a plus-13.


--F Brandan Wright (shoulder) is definitely 0out through the All-Star break and possibly into March after he fully recovers from a partially dislocated left shoulder suffered Jan. 7 against the Lakers.

--G Marco Belinelli (ankle) will sit out the Warriors' trip to Dallas, New Orleans and Houston this week as he continues to mend the right ankle he bruised Jan. 11 against the Pacers.

--G Jamal Crawford (knee) returned from a two-game absence and played 23 minutes Wednesday at Dallas. Crawford initially had complained about pain in his right hamstring, but the Warriors' medical staff diagnosed the problem to be a bruised knee.
