In the 2018-2019 NBA Finals, The Golden State Warriors lost Klay Thompson to a severe injury (torn ACL), they lost Kevin Durant in the following offseason, and now on October 30th Stephen Curry was injured with a broken left hand and will be out for at least 3 months.

Curry was injured after a collision with Aaron Baynes and required surgery on his left hand. Luckily for the Warriors, Curry did not injure his shooting hand, which would have most likely affected his shooting ability. How much will all this affect the Warriors season?

The Warriors have hit a dead end. What was once a dynasty and a 5 straight NBA Finals, has come to an unfortunate beginning to the 2019-2020 season with a record of 2-6. One year ago, the Warriors starting lineup was S. Curry, K. Thompson, K. Durant, D. Green, and D. Cousins. The Warriors starting lineup on Wednesday nights game was K. Bowman, J. Poole, G. Robinson III, E. Paschall, and W. Cauley-Stein. The Warriors continued to lose that game to The Rockets.

Steve Kerr has to find a way on how to make the team function properly without their key assets. The Warriors plan with the team is still very unclear; we don’t know if the Warriors are going to tank the season while they wait for Curry and Klay Thompson to return, or if they are going to rebuild.

Hopefully, for all the Warriors fans, the team finds a proper function and comes back in the early playoff run.
