Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-11-14

Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-11-14ROTATION: 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, Forward Corey Maggette, Center Anthony Randolph.


--G Stephen Curry has gone from starter to three-minute backup in a matter of three games. The rookie got only three minutes in Friday's win over the Knicks because C.J. Watson played brilliantly as the backup point guard, scoring 19 points in 27 minutes.

--F Stephen Jackson played all but the final 35 seconds of the win one game after being limited by coach Don Nelson to 18 minutes.

Why? Because as opposed to Wednesday at Indiana, where Jackson did little but shoot the ball, he was his usual all-around-contributing self against the Knicks, complementing 23 points with eight rebounds, five steals and three assists.

"I didn't know I would use him as much tonight, but he just had a real good feel," Nelson explained.

--G Monta Ellis had harsh words for coach Don Nelson after Thursday's practice, but clearly there were no hard feelings. Despite being late for Thursday's workout, Ellis retained his starting spot and played 45 minutes. He hit 10 of his 19 shots, the third time in eight games that he's made at least 50 percent of his attempts.

--F Kelenna Azubuike was a third Warrior who played at least 40 minutes, logging 40. He, Jackson and Corey Maggette formed a three-forward frontline most of the game, which relegated Anthony Randolph to limited duties (just six minutes). Azubuike was one of six Warriors with at least five rebounds as Golden State, despite playing without centers Andris Biedrins and Ronny Turiaf, managed to battle the Knicks to a 37-37 deadlock on the boards.


--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 the Nov. 7 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 sixth consecutive game after suffering the injury Oct. 30. An MRI revealed no damage and the Warriors hope to get him back at practice soon.

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