The Golden State Warriors aren’t healthy and won’t have much time to find a rhythm before the playoffs

If the Golden State Warriors want to be playing their best and most productive basketball at the right time, they’re going to need almost everything to fall into place – and quickly. Specifically, the team needs to get healthy soon.

James Wiseman is expected to make his season debut sooner rather than later but there isn’t that much time for him to play his way into game shape and, at the same time, mesh with the team. The same could be said about Draymond’s return. He still has no timetable for a return, but the hope is that he’s back before the playoffs.

That’s in addition to Klay Thompson, who returned from back-to-back serious injuries, still trying to find his rhythm with the team. It’s not going to be easy for the Warriors over the last few weeks of the season to try and get everyone on the same page.
