The Warriors came into the season looking to achieve one of the most prestigious feats in the NBA, the three-peat. However, after playing through June for a fifth straight year, the team ran out of…

Bob Myers says the Warriors haven't discussed whether or not they'll engage in load management for Steph Curry and Draymond Green next season.
The Warriors are in for more of a fight in the regular season next year, and while they'll likely have to play harder to clinch a playoff spot with security, they still figure to prioritize the long-term health of their stars and try to keep them as fresh as possible for the postseason. Expect Green and Curry to get a few nights off next season, but we wouldn't expect it to impact their fantasy stocks at all. With Kevin Durant gone and Klay Thompson looking at a mid-year return, Curry and Green could have huge seasons coming.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting the Warriors are sending $1.3 million in cash and a 2024 second-rounder to the Hawks in exchange for the No. 41 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
With a team as cap-strapped (especially if KD stays) as the Warriors, second-rounders become very important. Whoever the Warriors draft could potentially become a rotational player. As we saw in the NBA Finals, the Warriors could use some depth and this player could see significant minutes depending on the circumstances. The Warriors have been very good with late selections, so it will be interesting to see what player they chase with the pick.

Stephen Curry scored 21 points on 6-of-17 shooting with three rebounds, seven assists, two steals, a block and three 3-pointers in Thursday's 110-114 loss to the Raptors.
Curry put forth his best effort, but there's only so much you can do when half of your roster is either inactive or hurt. His last shot at the buzzer was as clean of a look as you could ask for, but it fell short and the Raptors would ice the game afterwards. With Kevin Durant's Achilles injury looming, it'll be interesting to see how the Warriors and Curry respond next season.

Stephen Curry scored a game-high 31 (10-for-23 FGs, 6-for-6 FTs) to go with eight rebounds, seven assists and five threes in 41 minutes in the Warriors' 106-105 Game 5 win in Toronto.
Curry and Klay Thompson hit big threes late to pull this one out and take the series back home for Thursday's Game 6. It looks like they'll once again be without Kevin Durant, but they've shown they still have enough to potentially defend their title.

Stephen Curry labored his way to 27 points on 9-for-22 shooting including six assists, four rebounds, one assist and two threes in Friday's 92-105 loss to the Raptors.
Curry also fumbled away three turnovers as he did little to help his team avoid a 1-3 hole in the NBA Finals. Warriors fans are hoping for some vintage Steph magic starting with Monday's Game 5.

Steph Curry put up 47 points on 14-of-31 shooting with eight rebounds and seven assists in 43 minutes in a 123-109 loss to the Raptors in Game 3 on Wednesday.
He shot 6-of-14 from beyond the arc and 13-of-14 from the stripe. Curry was missing his backcourt buddy in Klay Thompson in Game 3 and the Warriors are still without Kevin Durant, so there was a lot of pressure on Curry to perform well and he did just that. The issue in this game was that the supporting cast did not step up and it was seemingly Curry against the Raptors for much of this game. The Raptors are up 2-1 in the series and Game 4 is still at home for the Warriors, so they will look to even up the series before it heads back to Toronto.

Steph Curry put up 23 points on 6-of-17 shooting with three steals and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes of action in a 109-104 Game 2 win on Sunday.
Curry has averaged 28.5 points per game over the first two games of this series, so his hot Western Conference Finals play has carried over into the NBA Finals. The Raptors played a box-and-one defense on Curry, which worked quite well for a good chunk of the fourth quarter. The Warriors head home for Game 3 and will need the two-time MVP to step up and give them a lead in the series.

Stephen Curry took a brief trip to the locker room in the second quarter of Sunday's Game 2 vs. the Raptors.
His immediate return to the court implies that the trip was to address something that was not too serious. That said, Warriors fans can breathe a sigh of relief, because without him their chances of evening up this series drop significantly.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors in scoring in their 109-118 Game 1 loss to the Raptors on Thursday with 34 points on 8-of-18 shooting while adding five rebounds, five assists, a steal and four 3-pointers.
Curry did the best he could on offense and he's going to have to do even more if Kevin Durant (calf strain) continues to miss time. He committed four fouls and the Raptors will continue to attack him in all sorts of matchups so he'll have to keep his hands to himself, but he's continuing to play at an excellent rate on offense. He'll need his teammates to step up in Game 2.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors to a 119-117 OT Game 4 on Monday with 37 points on 11-of-25 shooting with 13 rebounds, 11 assists, a steal and seven 3-pointers.
Curry put on an off-ball clinic tonight, running circles around the Blazers to get open even though he drew consistent triple-teams. Steve Kerr wanted to end this series tonight so Curry played the entire second half including OT and the move paid off. There shouldn’t be any more noise about Curry’s ability to perform in the playoffs as he destroyed the Blazers in every coverage they threw at him. It’ll be all eyes on Curry again in the Finals as they look to three-peat.

Stephen Curry scored 36 points in Saturday's 110-99 Game 3 win over the Blazers, adding six rebounds, three assists and five turnovers.
Curry led his team offensively, contributing 36 points on 11-for-26 shooting. On a night where teammate Draymond Green was the primary facilitator, Curry settled in on scoring the bulk of his team's points from off the ball screens and shots from behind the arc. The Warriors have the luxury to allow for multiple ball-handlers and Curry seemed happy to acquiesce as he and Klay Thompson combined for 55 points with seven 3-pointers. Look for Curry to continue to lead the team in scoring as Kevin Durant is not expected to be back this series.

Stephen Curry went off in Thursday's 114-111 win and posted a monster 37-point masterpiece on 11-for-22 shooting and 11-for-11 from the charity stripe while adding four 3-pointers, eight rebounds and eight assists.
Curry continues to lead the way and frustrate the Blazers defense. Though marred with six turnovers, he was otherwise able to have his way during the first three quarters and settled on being a facilitator in the final minutes of the game. His ability to score and make sound, in-game decisions will enable him to continue to have games like these throughout the series.

Stephen Curry led the Warriors to a 116-94 win in Tuesday's Game 1, going 12-of-23 from the field and 9-of-15 from deep to go with six rebounds, seven assists and a steal.
A couple days ago Curry said that his dislocated finger would give him discomfort until it was given time to heal, but he certainly looked fine in this one. The Blazers curiously embraced drop-back coverage on high pick-and-rolls, enabling Curry to step into wide-open threes without even having to work for them. He still hit some crazy shots but the Blazers didn't make things as difficult as they could've. Even despite some incoming adjustments, you never have to think twice about plugging Curry into a DFS lineup.

Stephen Curry's dislocated finger won't fully heal until he has time to rest it.
Curry originally dislocated the finger in Game 2 against the Rockets and re-aggravated it in Game 6. The rest in between series will help, but it might not be fully healed. He is experimenting with splints and tape to help him feel comfortable. Curry's shooting has been affected at times because of the injury and we'll see if that continues into the Western Conference Finals against Portland.
