Golden State is much better set up to handle the absence of Curry than the Spurs are to handle the absence of Leonard.

But those two teams - those matchup nightmares and worst-case scenarios for the Warriors - can't face Golden State until the Western Conference Finals, should they advance past Houston, who themselves will face a full-strength Minnesota team that stands a chance of making things a bit interesting in the first round.

In addition, Stephen Curry will be out at least one round while recovering from a sprained MCL. "The fear factor for the Warriors without Curry does not exist". Kurt Helin of NBC Sports brings in Mark Medina, Warriors beat writer for the San Jose Mercury News and Bay Area News Group, to talk about whether the Warriors can just flip the switch, or do the Spurs - and other teams down the line - have a shot? There are several options for Durant and the Warriors, including another two-year deal or a four-year max contract valued at around $158 million. While Durant is as close to un-guardable as there is in the league, and Klay Thompson can keep a defense honest with his shooting range, without the threat of Curry pulling up from 30 feet and dragging opponents away from the basket, the threat of the Warriors changes.


He's having a great season this year, but he hasn't been at peak form.

Steve Kerr said Curry will be re-evaluated Saturday, but the head coach doesn't anticipate the guard will play at all in the first-round series, per Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

The Warriors effectively conceded the top seed in the West and home-court advantage to the Rockets last month. Should they advance, they'll play the victor of the Portland Trail Blazers-New Orleans Pelicans series.
