Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-10-29

Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-10-29ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Stephen Curry, Shooting guard Monta Ellis, Small forward Stephen Jackson, Power forward Ronny Turiaf, Center Andris Biedrins. Bench -- Guard Anthony Morrow, Forward Kelenna Azubuike, Forward Corey Maggette, Forward Anthony Randolph.


--F Ronny Turiaf got the start at power forward ahead of Corey Maggette and Anthony Randolph, but wound up playing a majority of his 26 minutes at center due to Andris Biedrins' foul trouble. Warriors coach Don Nelson said before the game his starting lineup will be a game-by-game decision based on the matchups and who's healthy. Randolph, who had been the team's projected starter at power forward at the start of training camp, was bothered late in the preseason by a sore back.

--G Stephen Curry posted nice numbers in his NBA debut with 14 points, seven assists and four steals. He started at point guard and was at his best both early and late in the game. He had the Warriors' final four hoops of the night, including a lay-up off an offensive rebound as the horn sounded.

--F Stephen Jackson was booed in the pregame introductions and shrugged it off, finishing with 17 points. Perhaps as a sign of the Warriors' improved depth this season, he was limited to 35 minutes.

--G Anthony Morrow was acknowledged as the NBA's most accurate three-point shooter of 2008-09 in a brief pregame ceremony during which he received a plaque from Golden State general manager Larry Riley. Morrow then missed two of his three three-point attempts in the game, including a potential game-tying shot with three seconds remaining.


--F Anthony Randolph (sore back) did not start but looked energetic in two stints. He had eight points, four rebounds and a blocked shot in just 10 minutes. He might start Friday at Phoenix.

--F Brandan Wright (torn labrum) underwent surgery Oct. 9. His recovery time is estimated to be six months, so there's a good chance he won't play at all in 2009-10.

--F Kelenna Azubuike (sprained left ankle) played 18 minutes off the bench, contributing 13 points and six rebounds.

--F Devean George (sore left knee) was not on the active 12-man roster, surrendering his spot to Acie Law. The two might flip-flop spots Friday in Phoenix.
