It’s not a problem yet for the Golden State Warriors, but in the playoffs, it could be. That potential issue is size, and it should have fans concerned.
The front office may also be looking at ways to mend their issues when it comes to being drastically smaller than other teams. This first was easily seen in a loss to the Jazz a few weeks ago in which they were drastically overwhelmed on the glass.
The Warriors aren’t going to have James Wiseman at all this season, and they may look into ways to solve a potential size issue in the playoffs.
Sure, they can light up teams from deep, but it’s not easy to do that on a consistent basis. For many of the Warriors’ title runs, they’ve had the luxury of either having Kevin Durant, providing length in the frontcourt, or Andrew Bogut, a 7-foot center.
This time around, they’ll be without their only 7-foot option, James Wiseman. Wiseman’s rookie season ended after a meniscus tear, and he’s not been sidelined from that and many setbacks for multiple months.
He was recently shut down for the season, leaving the Warriors no hope of adding size internally. What else can they do to mend any potential issue? With that in mind, let’s dive into 3 ways they can fix or adjust to any size issues they face.
