Warriors vs. Hornets gamethread: Harrison Barnes and Brandon Rush will return from injury

New, comments

The Warriors' injury report was long today but there's some good news there.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Just in case you totally checked out of the Golden State Warriors' dominant season during the holidays, this team is more banged up now than they have been in some time.

With Stephen Curry leaving Saturday night's game against the Denver Nuggets with a calf contusion, the Warriors entered the week with six players on their injury list. But if you looked closely, a few of those injuries looked relatively minor — or things players could return from fast — and tonight it looks like the list will at least be pared down.

According to multiple reports throughout the day, Harrison Barnes and Brandon Rush will return from injury tonight. Festus Ezeli was doubtful to begin the day and looks like he will remain out, according to Ethan Strauss.

More interesting about that news is that Rush will reportedly remain the starter despite Barnes' return.

Curry remains questionable, but did go through his pre-game warmup process.

That leaves Leandro Barbosa and James Michael McAdoo out as Kevon Looney heads to Santa Cruz to begin his career in the D-League.

Whew...got all that?

Now let's root this team to a win.
