Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-11-13


Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-11-13ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Monta Ellis, Shooting guard Anthony Morrow, Small forward Kelenna Azubuike, Power forward Stephen Jackson, Center Mikki Moore. Bench -- Guard Stephen Curry, Guard C.J. Watson, Guard Acie Law, Forward Corey Maggette, Center Anthony Randolph.

PLAYER NOTES:

--G Stephen Curry came off the bench for the first time in his career in the Warriors' loss to the Pacers on Wednesday. Warriors coach Don Nelson opted for a taller backcourt because he was without his two centers -- Andris Biedrins and Ronny Turiaf -- and thus was smaller upfront than he would have liked.

--C Anthony Randolph didn't start, but he got 31 of the 48 center minutes. It was enough to record his second double-double in the last four games with 17 points and 13 rebounds. Depending upon how long Biedrins is out of action, it might not be long before Randolph is starting at center.

--G Monta Ellis started at point guard for the first time this season, yet recorded five or fewer assists for the fifth time in seven games. He did, however, chip in big-time on the boards for the second consecutive game, grabbing nine. That gives him 19 in the last two games.

--F Corey Maggette is heating up. He has been the Warriors' best offensive player in the last five games after struggling through a 5-for-21 start. He had 20 or more points for the third time in five November games Wednesday, leading the Warriors with 21 on 7-for-10 shooting. He's also getting to the free-throw line with more regularity, getting nine foul shots against the Pacers after having seven in Monday's win over Minnesota.

MEDICAL WATCH:

--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.

--C Andris Biedrins (strained groin and abdominal muscles) has been told to take two weeks off after experiencing what he thought was back pain in Sunday's loss at Sacramento. He will be re-evaluated after the two-week layoff and could miss additional time. He did not accompany the Warriors on their current five-game road trip.

--C Ronny Turiaf (sprained left knee) missed a fifth consecutive game after suffering the injury Oct. 30. An MRI revealed no damage and the Warriors hope to get him back during their five-game trip that doesn't end until Nov. 18 at Boston.

--F Devean George (sore left knee) has yet to see action in the regular season. His injury is not considered serious.
