In the meantime, the Warriors have a couple of personnel matters that we’ll be watching closely.

The Warriors could be at full strength in the conference finals

It was really hard to watch DeMarcus Cousins suffer an injury so early in his first playoff appearance and the initial assumption was that he’d be lost for the playoffs. Yet after increasingly optimistic reports on his rehab process, Marc Stein of ESPN tweeted tonight that Cousins could make a return in the next round.

There have also been reports over the last few days that Kevin Durant could return to action as well during the conference finals meaning that the Warriors could be at near full health in the next round — hopefully, Steph Curry’s finger can heal up over the next few days as well.
