    In practice, the changes were already underway with the Warriors — Don Nelson was out, Keith Smart was in. A lineup of only shooters was being replaced by grittier, more physical players. But now the change in ownership that precipitated all of that is official — Joseph Lacob and Peter Guber have been unanimously approved…

  2. Ellis expects to play against New York

    Nov 10, 2010, 6:08 PM EDT

    Monta Ellis

    Here’s the latest on the injured Monta Ellis, courtesy of the Contra Costa Times’ Marcus Thompson: Warriors guard Monta Ellis is expecting to play tonight. At Wednesday’s shootaround, he said he felt “fine,” just that he was sore. “Yeah,” Ellis said, “I’m playing.” Ellis is officially listed as a game-time decision. He will be examined…

  3. Monta Ellis’ back injury just a strain, listed as day-to-day

    Nov 9, 2010, 1:09 PM EDT

    Ellis_injured

    UPDATE 1:09 pm: Official word from the team is that Ellis simply has a back strain, that the X-rays and a CT scan showed nothing serious. He is listed as day-to-day and is catching up with the Warriors in New York, where the team faces the Knicks Wednesday night. 10:53 am: If you watched the…

  4. Monta Ellis leaves game after hard fall, spending night in Toronto

    Nov 8, 2010, 11:15 PM EDT

    Ellis_injured

    With less than two minutes to go in Golden State’s win Monday night Monta Ellis took a hard fall on his back under the Toronto basket. He was down in pain for a couple minutes before he helped up and to the locker room, and X-rays were taken of his back. The results of those…

  5. Rumors continue but Warriors not likely to move Monta Ellis

    Nov 7, 2010, 4:00 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Golden State Warriors

    Remember how Monta Ellis and Stephen Curry were not going to be able to play well together and Ellis had to be traded? Another urban myth, right up there with Mr. Rogers was a Navy Seal. Ellis is having a career year — 28.6 points per game, at a shooting percentage 60 points higher than…

  6. The unexpectedly expected rise of Dorell Wright

    Nov 4, 2010, 6:17 PM EDT

    Dorell Wright

    If you had Dorell Wright pegged as a 20-point scorer or the league leader in three-pointers made a week into the season, I’d politely ask that you step toward the stake surrounded by kindling. We don’t take kindly to witches and soothsayers around here. In retrospect, though, it makes complete sense. Maybe not Wright’s .545…

  7. Stephen Curry rolls ankle again, leaves game and will miss Lakers game

    Oct 30, 2010, 5:28 PM EDT

    SCurry_injured

    UPDATE 5:28 pm: Curry has tweeted that he will not be traveling with the team to Los Angeles for Sunday’s game. The Warriors are off until Wednesday after that, when they  play Memphis, he is waiting to see if he will be ready for that game. 1:27 am: Stephen Curry has been playing through a…

  8. In case you missed it: Blake Griffin can sky

    Oct 29, 2010, 6:35 PM EDT

    The Clippers and Blake Griffin take on Golden State tonight and that might be must-watch television. Yes, “Clippers” and “must watch” in the same sentence, but it’s Griffin. The man just skies, and in what should be a wide open game he should have chances. Plus Griffin on David Lee should be s show.

  9. Is Monta Ellis back?

    Oct 28, 2010, 6:42 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    In the 2007-08 season, Monta Ellis was one of the most explosive and efficient young scorers in basketball. Thanks to his blazing speed, explosiveness, and deadly mid-range game, Ellis was able to score 22.3 points per game while shooting 54% from the field in 2007-08, a nearly unheard of field goal percentage for a high-volume…

  10. Warriors Stephen Curry joins league’s long list of walking wounded

    Oct 22, 2010, 8:14 AM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_curry.jpg for post 108

    The only day an NBA player is healthy is the first day of training camp. It seems especially true this season. Is there a team that does not have a couple guys already banged up and starting the season with a nagging injury? Add the Warriors and Stephen Curry to the list. He had to…

  11. NBA Season Preview: Golden State Warriors

    Oct 21, 2010, 4:53 PM EDT

    Warriors_huddle

    Last season: 26-56, which is kind of the record you end up with when you don’t play much defense. And Don Nelson had stopped caring about defense, or seemingly coaching half the time. But as much as that, it was an injury-ravaged season that kept the win total that low. Head Coach: Keith Smart, who…

  12. Stephen Curry not playing smart in Keith Smart offense yet

    Oct 19, 2010, 9:43 AM EDT

    SCurry_surrounded

    Last season, as the point guard in Don Nelson’s free-flowing offense, Stephen Curry had nearly a 2:1 assist to turnover ratio. So far this preseason in the smarter Keith Smart offense that is a 1:1 ratio. As in 28 assists and 28 turnovers. Not good. Last season Curry’s turnover rate of 16.5 percent was too…

  13. Warriors Lou Amundson to have surgery on his broken finger

    Oct 17, 2010, 8:33 PM EDT

    Finally, Saturday night Lou Amundson got in a preseason game with the Golden State Warriors. And now he is out again. For a while. Amundson fractured that finger in the fourth quarter of Saturday night’s game against Portland and now will need surgery on that finger, according to Matt Steinmetz of CSNBayArea.com. No date for…

  14. Maybe we haven’t seen the last of Don Nelson after all

    Oct 7, 2010, 2:52 PM EDT

    Image (1) dnelson_points-thumb-250x176-21110.jpg for post 4350

    Don Nelson’s tenure as head coach of the Golden State Warriors was marked by one shining moment and countless infuriating ones. Between Nelson’s influence on personnel decisions, his rotations, his handling of players, and the general quagmire that plagued the Warriors organization as a whole, few things seemed to go right in the Bay. Moving…

  15. Warriors name starting five. That didn’t take long.

    Sep 30, 2010, 11:04 AM EDT

    Keith Smart knows what he wants from the Warriors. And he knows who he wants to do it. Two days into training camp Smart named his starting five according to Matt Steinmetz of Comcast Bay Area: Stephen Curry, Monta Ellis, Dorell Wright, David Lee and Andris Biedrins. No real surprises on that list. In fact…

  16. Warriors pick up option year on Stephen Curry deal. As expected.

    Sep 29, 2010, 2:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) NBA_curry.jpg for post 108

    Stephen Curry is in the playing-like-an-All-Star-but-getting-paid-like-a-rookie part of his career. As expected, the Warriors announced they picked up the third season team option on Curry that follows his rookie season, as reported by Marc Spears of Yahoo. Curry will make $2.9 million this season, $3.1 million in his third season. Next year the Warriors will…

  17. The Warriors are going to play defense this season. For a change.

    Sep 26, 2010, 12:29 PM EDT

    Last season we seemed never to type “Warriors” and “defense” in the same sentence, unless the words “not playing any” were included. Things are different now. Brand new coach Keith Smart has come into Warriors camp preaching defense. It’s part of the big changes with the Warriors — roster changes, owner changes, logo changes and…

  18. Writing had been on wall for Don Nelson for months

    Sep 24, 2010, 10:10 AM EDT

    Don Nelson is a revolutionary coach. Whatever you think of how it ended, the man was a game changer. He helped make it okay for Dirk Nowitzki to be a power forward on the wing. You don’t become the all-time winningest coach in NBA history on a fluke. He had a career — from playing…

  19. Report: Warriors to replace Don Nelson as head coach

    Sep 23, 2010, 8:06 PM EDT

    According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, the Warriors are on the verge of replacing current head coach Don Nelson with current assistant coach Keith Smart.  The incoming co-owner of the Warriors, Joe Lacob, told the San Jose Mercury News’ Tim Kawakami that this officially will happen Monday (at Warriors media day). “You’ll have clarity on Monday,”…

  20. Utah Jazz have "issue" with Kyrylo Fesenko

    Sep 21, 2010, 10:46 AM EDT

    The Utah Jazz are a little tired of waiting. They have had the $1.1 million qualifying offer for Kyrylo Fesenko on the table for more than two months. Fesenko hasn’t signed it, trying to get another team — Houston and Cleveland have had serious talks — to make a better, longer-term offer. Because the Jazz…

  21. Are the Warriors better off with Keith Smart?

    Sep 18, 2010, 9:42 AM EDT

    The tea leaves read “Nellie is done.” And though Nelson long and distinguished career is certainly worth respecting, you can still hear the collective sigh of relief, followed by the sharp intake of anticipation from Warriors fans. A fresh start. A new beginning. A change in the winds. Or, you know, not really any of…

  22. Monta Ellis grows up. And Curry, he's sorry about all that stuff last season.

    Sep 17, 2010, 10:21 AM EDT

    Things are changing in Golden State — from the new owners coming in next month to the new team logo. Soon enough there will be changes in styles of play and how the team is run. Monta Ellis is changing, too. He’s maturing. That comes off in a fantastic bit of reporting and writing by…

  23. Report: Signals are Warriors will remove Don Nelson, promote Keith Smart

    Sep 15, 2010, 10:18 AM EDT

    If one thing would endear the new Warriors owner Joe Lacob to Bay Area fans it would be to remove Don Nelson the day he gets control of the franchise. That may be what happens, according to Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News. The signals are strong: If the timing is right and…

  24. Want to go to Warriors Media Day? Oh, sorry, now called Tweedia Day.

    Sep 15, 2010, 8:56 AM EDT

    Some lucky fan is going to be able to watch live and in person as David Lee does some television promotion bits. Thrilling stuff, that is. The Golden State Warriors are looking for some social media studs to be the fans eyes and ears at media day Sept. 27. To tell the public what is…

  25. Lou Amundson reaches deal with Golden State Warriors

    Sep 13, 2010, 11:02 AM EDT

    They may not have a classic big man, but the Golden State Warriors have an athletic and interesting front line. One that just got more interesting with news that Lou Amundson has reached a deal with the Warriors, a two year deal worth just less than $5 million, with the second year a player option…
