Three Day Links Thread: Back from China, back to practice in Oakland


After the game in Shanghai, the Warriors hopped on a plane, headed back to the Bay, and took Saturday off. Sunday, they returned to practice.

In the Shanghai game, 4 of our players did not play: Harrison Barnes, Toney Douglas, Jermaine O'Neal, and Andrew Bogut (who did play, but was pulled after less than 3 minutes). Three of these players returned to practice on Sunday, but one did not, and will likely miss the Kings game. Guess who it is, then check out the practice videos or articles to find out.
