After days of not having their second and third-leading scorers on hand to relieve a bit of the load off of Stephen Curry’s shoulders, the Warriors are set on getting two of their crucial starters back.
Per Shams Charania of The Athletic:
Golden State Warriors guard Jordan Poole cleared health and safety protocols and returned to the Bay today, sources tell me and @anthonyVslater.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) December 28, 2021
Poole reportedly remained in Boston during his entire quarantine period, and has returned to the Bay Area. Barring any last minute changes, he will remain out against the Denver Nuggets tomorrow night due to conditioning.
Per Anthony Slater of The Athletic:
Jordan Poole is expected to return to the Warriors' facility tomorrow, per Steve Kerr, but not play against the Nuggets. Timeline for his return will be determined after he gets in some work, team gets better sense on his conditioning.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 28, 2021
Meanwhile, Andrew Wiggins, who quarantined in the Bay Area, has also cleared protocols.
Andrew Wiggins is cleared from health and safety protocols and not listed on the Warriors' injury report tomorrow against the Nuggets. Jordan Poole remains out. Wiggins quarantined in the Bay Area.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 28, 2021
As stated above by Slater, Wiggins is not listed on the injury report, which could very well mean that we will see him against the Nuggets tomorrow.
This post will be updated in case further news comes out, but with Draymond Green recently entering health and safety protocols, Wiggins and Poole coming back is a much-needed development.
