The Golden State Warriors are in the midst of their worst season in over five years. While offseason roster changes have played a part in that misfortune, the injury bug has been their biggest inhibitor.
Injuries to Steph, Klay, Draymond Green, and D’Angelo Russell have forced some surprising lineups on the floor, and things are only getting worse.
Eric Walden recently shared a report of the Warriors’ injury list for their upcoming game against the Jazz, and it’s not looking pretty.

Since a minimum of nine players must be available to play for the Dubs if they want to play through this game, they may have to call up some guys from their G-League team. Based on the number of injuries the team has sustained, it’s unlikely that they’ll be able to field a bare-bones squad with who they have left.
This has been the theme for the Dubs all season long, and will probably continue to plague them as the season progresses.
Their only hope lies in what will come next year when the return of Steph, Klay, and others will likely mean a return to postseason contention.
