Warriors’ Luke Walton wants slow-start trend to ‘change’

“To me, it’s two things,” Warriors interim head coach Luke Walton said before Friday’s game. Brooklyn took the Warriors into overtime, the Warriors squeaked out a five-point win over Toronto, and they had to overcome a 23-point deficit to beat the Clippers. The Warriors’ second-string backcourt returned to the rotation — giving the team its healthiest squad since the season opener. Shaun Livingston had missed the past two games with a strained left hip flexor. Leandro Barbosa had missed three of the past four games — two while tending to a family matter in Brazil and...

Warriors near full strength as Green, Thompson, Barbosa return

The Warriors expect to be as close to 100 percent healthy as they have been all season when they face Toronto on Tuesday night at Oracle Arena. Draymond Green (flu), Klay Thompson (back) and Leandro Barbosa (family matter) all participated in the Tuesday morning shootaround and are planning to be available to play against the Raptors - leaving only Kevon Looney, who is recovery from hip surgery, on the sideline. When the Warriors played back-to-back games in Memphis and Minnesota last week, he said he felt his game was relegated to being a spot-up shooter. “It’s not pain that will keep...

Warriors’ Leandro Barbosa leaves team to attend to family matter

Interim head coach Luke Walton said Barbosa is also expected to miss Saturday’s home game against Brooklyn before returning Monday, a day ahead of a home game against Toronto. Barbosa, the team’s backup shooting guard, is averaging 5.6 points and two assists in 14.6 minutes per game. The Warriors’ shooting guard couldn’t help but think about Saunders when arriving in Minnesota for the first time since the 17-year NBA coach died of cancer Oct. 25. Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is among 12 finalists for Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year, joining Simone Biles, Usain...

Warriors' Barbosa leaves team for family reasons

Golden State Warriors reserve guard Leandro Barbosa will miss at least two games while he attends to a family matter in Brazil.

Warriors lean on depth in sprinting out of gate

Lost in the frenzy of Wednesday night’s fourth-quarter rally, tucked behind another Stephen Curry flurry and a scintillating stretch from Harrison Barnes, stood ageless Leandro Barbosa, essentially the 10th man on the Warriors. Barbosa played 13 minutes against the Clippers, took four shots from the field — making them all — and scored nine points in a taut duel. Interim head coach Luke Walton likes to rave about his team’s deep bench. The reserves played a significant role against the Clippers, especially when Curry picked up his second foul less than three minutes into the...
