Do we even need to explain this one? Health is important for every contending NBA team, but the Golden State Warriors are more vulnerable than any other squad.
For starters, they are already dealing with health issues. Klay Thompson is nurturing a torn ACL and won’t be back until after the All-Star break. Even when he comes back, there is a chance he never returns to full strength.
With this weaker lineup for most of the year, the Dubs are honestly one major injury away from missing the postseason altogether. If Draymond Green, D’Angelo Russell or Stephen Curry suffer a significant injury, the Dubs would go from five consecutive NBA Finals to missing the playoffs.
Even if the team manages to avoid any more severe injuries, a few minor ones could derail the season. The dynasty is in jeopardy and it will take full strength to keep the Dubs on top.
