The Warriors resumed practice Friday, and though several continue to experience discomfort, only center Andrew Bogut did not participate.
This was better than coach Steve Kerr could have expected after watching Stephen Curry and Draymond Green both limp off the court late Wednesday night after beating Portland to clinch a berth in the Western Conference Finals.
“Draymond and Steph looked fine,” Kerr said after practice. “Bogues, hopefully, will practice tomorrow. But we gave him the day off today. We’ll just kind of see."
Bogut is listed as “day to day” as the Warriors approach Game 1 of the conference finals Monday night against Oklahoma City. After sustaining a strained right adductor in the second quarter of Game 5 against the Trail Blazers, he was unable to return to the game.
The 7-footer did not undergo a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test. He did notice some improvement, according to Kerr, who acknowledged it’s uncertain when Bogut could return.
“We’re hoping he’ll be all right with these next few days to treat it,” Kerr said.
As for Green and Curry, both were full participants, even engaging in their usual post-practice shooting drills. Curry conceded he’s not 100 percent but added that he would be able to play if there were a game Friday night.
