Injury update: Jordan Bell is back on the court

New, comments

While still a ways off from returning to action, Golden State’s rookie is resuming on-court activities.

The Golden State Warriors aren’t incredibly fun right now. They’re sleepwalking through games, going through the motions, and losing a lot (by their standards). There’s no reason to be worried, but I don’t blame you if you’re not exactly enjoying the team right now.

But thankfully, there’s some exciting news to put a smile on our faces. Jordan Bell is back on the court, and no longer walking with a limp.

Bell has been out since spraining his ankle on January 17 in a scary fall. His timetable has been pretty vague, so it’s great to see him back on the court.

Of course, Bell just now getting back on the court means he’s likely still a ways away from playing in any games. And the Warriors won’t even reassess him until after the All-Star break.

But it’s still good news that he’s progressing, especially since the Warriors have been struggling a bit in his absence. Much of that is unrelated to Bell, but his 5.1 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks per game, along with his defensive energy, are missed.

It’ll be great to see him back on the court, whenever that is.
