Warriors Injury News: Stephen Curry, Harrison Barnes, Andrew Bogut

The surprising Golden State Warriors played last night with two out of three of there injured stars.  Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes were back in the lineup again, but Curry missed his second-straight game after rolling his surgically repaired ankle.

Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle had the pre-game updates last night before the matchup against the Dallas Mavericks.

Curry's injury is most concerning of late.  He previously had surgery on the ankle he rolled, so it's always a concern if he comes up lame on that particular foot.  That's exactly what he did on January 28th.  The injury does not seem to be severe, but since it has kept him out of the lineup, it's worth keeping an eye on.

Bogut has not played much this season because of micro fracture surgery he had last April.  He has returned to the court and played five games for the Warriors this season.  The team hopes a healthy Bogut alongside the rest of the roster will help them maintain and possibly improve their playoff position.

Currently, the Warriors are 29-17 and fifth in the Western Conference.  They seem poised to make the postseason, but they want to actually make a run.  If Curry can prove the ankle injury is not serious and Bogut can contribute minutes, they have a real shot.  Throw in Harrison Barnes' and the team could certainly compete with those in the Wester Conference.  It seems to be a down year for the West, so anything is possible.
