Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-03-01

Golden State Warriors Roster Report 2009-03-01
ROTATION: Starters -- Point guard C.J. Watson, Shooting guard Marco Belinelli, Small forward Kelenna Azubuike, Power forward Stephen Jackson, Center Andris Biedrins. Bench -- Guard Anthony Morrow, Forward Corey Maggette, Forward Anthony Randolph, Center Ronny Turiaf.


--G C.J. Watson made the most of his opportunity Friday, playing 44 minutes in the Warriors' home loss to the Bobcats. Watson, a point guard, had seen his playing time shrink considerably following Monta Ellis' return from ankle surgery. But with Ellis' ankle hurting and Jamal Crawford told not to suit up by Don Nelson in order to create more playing time for younger players, Watson saw his most action since going 49 minutes in a triple-overtime game against Sacramento on Jan. 14. He went 4-for-4 from the free throw line, and still hasn't missed since Jan. 23, a streak of 20 in a row.

--G Anthony Morrow also benefited from Crawford's absence, getting 16 minutes of playing time after having been on the court for only a total of seven minutes in previous February games. He made a three-pointer, his first of the month after having led the league in three-point percentage entering the All-Star break.

--C Andris Biedrins grabbed the 2,500th rebound of his young career in the first quarter as part of an 18-point, 13-rebound double-double, his 26th of the season.

--F Stephen Jackson led the Warriors with 33 points to finish February with a 27.3 scoring average in 10 games. He also averaged 8.1 assists and 5.7 rebounds in February, becoming the first Warrior since Guy Rodgers in November of 1965 to average at least 25 points, eight assists and five rebounds for an entire month.


--G Monta Ellis (ankle) sat out a second consecutive game Friday game against the Bobcats and won't play Sunday against the Jazz in hopes recurring pain in his surgically repaired left ankle will significantly lessen or go away all together. He might return during the Warriors' five-day, four-game road trip that tips off Tuesday in Minnesota.

--F Brandan Wright (shoulder) is close to returning to practice, but remains out as he recovers from a partially dislocated left shoulder suffered Jan. 7 against the Lakers.
