The reinforcements are officially here. Three key members of the Golden State Warriors are returning for tonight’s game against the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
In his pregame media availability, coach Steve Kerr announced that Steph Curry (one game missed due to illness), Kevon Looney (10 games missed due to a sprained ankle), and James Wiseman (11 games missed due to a sprained wrist) would all be returning to the lineup.
Kerr also specified that Looney would return to the starting lineup, and the Warriors rotation would likely be 10 players.
Steph Curry, Kevon Looney, and James Wiseman are all available play tonight vs Knicks. Loon will start at center, putting Wiseman with the second unit.— Kerith Burke (@KerithBurke) February 23, 2021
The Dubs went 5-5 in their 10 small ball games, with a few impressive wins and a few gut-wrenching losses as well. Now they’ll get some height back in the lineup — as a result, they may have to tinker with some rotations to make sure they still get some successful small ball in there.
Welcome back, all three. You were missed.
Now win, please.
