Following a devastating loss to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Steph Curry is using his offseason to recover, rest as much as possible, and to prepare for the uncertainty that lies ahead.
Trouble for Steph Curry thanks KD and Thompson’s injury
The injuries to Kevin Durant, which will keep him out for the entire next season, and Klay Thompson mean that the Warriors have a rather turbulent season up ahead.
It was a long and grueling season, culminating in the Finals, and that incredible effort and dedication is what cost both Durant and Thompson, with both getting injured in the NBA Finals.
Draymond Green and team star Steph Curry are still recovering from their efforts in the six-game NBA finals that truly tested the health levels of the Golden State Warriors’ players.

While what he says is true, it is up to the manager Steve Kerr to effectively manage the team, and Curry’s minutes next season. It is perhaps time for Curry to stop setting screens, especially with the absence of Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant, and start keeping the ball in his hands more. Not only with that help him preserve his energy, but it would also be a better strategy for the Warriors in the absence of two important players.
