Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-11-24

Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-11-24ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard Stephen Curry, Shooting guard Monta Ellis, Small forward Anthony Morrow, Power forward Corey Maggette, Center Mikki Moore. Bench -- Forward Vladimir Radmanovic, Forward Anthony Randolph, Center Chris Hunter.


--G Monta Ellis played all 48 minutes for the first time this season in Friday's win over Portland and had his best game of the season. He shot well (13-for-28, season-best 34 points), passed well (eight assists) and defended well (six steals, two blocked shots). Ellis has sat out a total of just 10 minutes in the three games since Stephen Jackson was traded to Charlotte. The 30-plus-point night was the 17th of Ellis' career.

--F Anthony Morrow also went the distance in the win and continued a trend in which he's played great in wins and not-so-good in losses. He's shot 28-for-41 overall and an amazing 14-for-19 on 3-pointers, averaging 18.5 points, in the Warriors' four wins. But he's missed 35 of his 61 shots, including 17 of his 27 3's, in the club's eight losses, averaging just 9.0 points in those games.

--G Stephen Curry almost joined Ellis and Morrow in never coming out of the action, but fouled out with 2:26 to go after playing the first 45 1/2 minutes. The disqualification was the second of Curry's foul-plagued career. He has gotten nailed with four or more fouls in six of his 12 games.

--F Anthony Randolph had another of his sometimes brilliant, sometimes embarrassing efforts, offsetting an 11-rebound night (seven on the offensive boards) with six turnovers. The 11 rebounds matched his season high.


--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) was 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 Monday and could miss additional time.

--C Ronny Turiaf (sprained left knee) has progressed slowly after suffering the injury Oct. 30. An MRI revealed no damage. Warriors coach Don Nelson told reporters Tuesday that he expects Biedrins to return before Turiaf, which means the backup center could miss most of the rest of the month.

--F Kelenna Azubuike (torn patella tendon) had surgery in Phoenix on Wednesday and will miss the rest of the season.

--G Raja Bell (torn wrist ligament) flew to Charlotte to have surgery on his left wrist. The procedure is tentatively scheduled for next week. It's possible he could return in as little as a month, but more likely he will miss most -- if not all -- of the rest of the season.

--G C.J. Watson (swine flu) returned to the San Francisco Bay Area after last Saturday's loss at Milwaukee and tested positive for swine flu. He has missed the last three games and the Warriors aren't sure when he'll return. They hope to have him back for their next game -- Tuesday at Dallas.

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

--G Speedy Claxton (knee) is unlikely to play this season.
