The Warriors are +15.8 per 100 when he is on the court. They will miss him.

He can help a team but really only in a limited role off the bench.

O’Neal was reportedly considering retirement, but either way, he won’t return to Golden State.
Sep 24, 2014, 9:00 AM EST
He played well when on the court last season, but a wrist injury limited him to 44 games.
Sep 20, 2014, 9:30 AM EST
He had toe surgery in mid-August.

I don’t see the Warriors as contenders, but it’s good that Thompson does.

As Golden State should
Dec 13, 2013, 4:58 PM EST
When last we left off with “Days of our Kyle Lowry,” the Raptors were shopping their favorite point guard around hard and had talked with New York. Then Knicks owner James Dolan pulled the plug on it because… well, he’s James Dolan. Now the Nets may be the frontrunners but the Knicks want back in…

The Warriors need big-man depth. Festus Ezeli has been out all season. Jermaine O’Neal and Draymond Green are banged up. Marreese Speights can’t gain Mark Jackson’s trust. Andre Iguodala is injured, too, and although he mostly plays on the wing, his absence the number of minutes he and Harrison Barnes can soak up as a…

This has been a brutal week in the NBA for injuries, but telling that to the Golden State Warriors is like preaching to the choir. The Warriors had already lost key rotation players in Toney Douglas and Jermaine O’Neal to minor injuries, and that’s in addition to being without backup centers Ogjen Kuzmi and Festus Ezeli.…

Andre Iguodala has been a fantastic fit with Golden State, the glue that filled in needed spaces on both ends of the floor — a second shot creator, a guy who finished in transition, and the defensive presence on the perimeter they needed. Which is to say, they are going to miss him if he…

Last season, Andrew Bogut missed 50 games. The season before that 54. The season before that 17. It’s been a long time since we’ve really seen a healthy Bogut for an extended period. But we also saw in the playoffs last season what a healthy Bogut means to Golden State — he is their defensive…

Golden State looks formidable: Stephen Curry at the point, Klay Thompson at the two, Andre Iguodala and David Lee are your forwards. Andrew Bogut is the starting center and his health (and defense) could be the lynchpin for how far this Warriors team can go. However, they need depth — and they may have found…

Just three teams don’t have picks in the upcoming NBA Draft: the Heat, Raptors and Warriors. The Heat, though every team could use draft picks, are doing just fine. The Raptors, according at least one prominent report, sent out cash in the Rudy Gay trade and the Collective Bargaining Agreement limits how much money a…

Warriors backup center Festus Ezeli is going to be out for the start of the season after undergoing surgery on his right knee Wednesday, the team has announced. Ezeli sprained his right knee in the Warriors regular season finale but battled through it for two rounds of the post season, playing 11 minutes a game…

When a player averages less than one point and three rebounds per game over the course of a season, while possessing the option to come back for another year with the same team at a salary of $9 million, it doesn’t take a degree in advanced economics to figure out what the chosen course of…

It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…

It’s not a stretch to say the Warriors have been the better team so far this series. They’ve led both contests for the majority of the minutes and it took an amazing comeback, two overtimes, and a last second three pointer for the Spurs to get their win. Heading back to Oakland, the Warriors have…
