Warriors notebook: Ronny Turiaf still day-to-day Turiaf can't pinpoint when he will return

BOSTON Ronny Turiaf is still day-to-day, which means the Warriors big man has no idea when he will return from his sprained left knee that has sidelined him since the second game of the season.

"I really can't tell you," Turiaf said before the Warriors' 109-95 loss to Boston on Wednesday. "I wish I had a better update to tell you. Hopefully, I wake up and feel 100 percent."

Turiaf said his knee is fine when he moves in a straight line, but not so much if he were to spin or move hard laterally because "my stability is not there."

Turiaf went on the road trip to work out with the Warriors' strength and conditioning specialists and to support his teammates. He doesn't have the equipment at his disposal that he would at home, but he's been improvising. Turiaf wasn't above hitting a hotel fitness center for a rehab session.

In the meantime, he is a vocal cheerleader and uses the game to learn. Still, that's no substitute for playing, especially while the Warriors are so short-handed.

"I feel bad," Turiaf said. "I want to be there for my team. I pride myself on being there for my teammates. In the same sense, what good would it do me to come back and end up being out for much, much longer? I look at the big picture."

Celtics guard Ray Allen, widely considered the best shooter in the NBA, intimated that Warriors guard Anthony Morrow has a ways to go to get into the conversation.

"It's hard to really put the stamp down on anybody (as the real deal) in this league," Allen said. "Comparisons are always done based on how well you've done it and how long you've done it ... When you see somebody doing it every day, night in and night out, that's when the stamp of approval is given."

Morrow was 2-for-5 for four points Wednesday. He missed all three of his 3-point attempts. After becoming the first rookie to lead the league in 3-point percentage last season, Morrow is facing opposing defenses that are geared up for him.

Allen said he remembers when the same happened to him.

"Most of the best shooters I've seen," Allen said, "are effective shooting the ball in a tight space, shooting the ball with a hand in your face. You're more likely to have a hand in your face than not."

Warriors swingman Kelenna Azubuike had surgery Wednesday to repair the torn patellar tendon in his left knee. It was performed by Dr. Tom Carter in Phoenix. Azubuike is expected to miss the remainder of the season. ... Rookie guard Stephen Curry had his right wrist bandaged Wednesday. He said he hurt it in Tuesday's loss at Cleveland. Though it was sore, he waived it off as not a big deal. He took the bandage off when he re-entered the game in the fourth quarter "because I couldn't shoot" with it on. ... Forward Vladimir Radmanovic had nine points, five rebounds and five turnovers in 29 minutes.
