Is there turbulence ahead for the Warriors without Draymond Green? – Athletics

MINNEAPOLIS - Thirteen of the Warriors' last 18 matches were away. It would have been 14 out of 19 if that game in Denver had not been postponed. From a travel perspective, this was their most difficult stretch of the season. It ended in a 119-99 blowout loss to the Timberwolves Sunday night, a disappointing performance to cover up a recent malaise that has put the three behind the Suns in the losing column.

"Run out of gas," coach Steve Kerr said. "I think the fatigue showed."

The way forward, seen from a travel and opponent perspective, is more inviting. The Warriors, who have not played two consecutive home games since before Christmas, will get seven straight at the Chase Center from Tuesday when the Pistons (10-32) come to visit. It will be followed by the Pacers (15-28) and the Rockets (13-32). The NBA schedule always has a way to evening out.

But the Warriors have not removed all the turbulence. Regarding news about Draymond Green fell before the match on Sunday. He missed the entire trip while caring for his injured calf in the Bay Area. Apparently, it included meetings with several specialists, who determined that "the tenderness / tightness of the left calf is linked to the involvement of a disc in the lower back," according to the team.
