When the NBA suspended the season 72 days ago, there was strong belief within the Warriors organization that their season was over. But recent reports suggest that it may not be time to clean lockers out just yet.
The NBA announced their intention to have guidelines set in place by June 1st for players to return to team activities. It will recall all players back and allow teams to engage in extensive workouts and practices.
The league is considering Las Vegas and Walt Disney World in Orlando as their two-site bubble destinations. Teams would complete the rest of the season and the playoffs, but would that also include the Warriors?
Steve Kerr admitted the team is in “off season mode”. Despite not knowing if the team will be asked to finish out the season.
The Warriors currently hold the worse record in the NBA and will receive a lottery pick in this year’s draft. It makes sense that Kerr wants to put this season on the back burner. But will the league allow it?
Tim Kawakami from the Athletic, hinted the Warriors could return to action for potentially 4-7 games.
The Warriors may need to finish out the regular season, but it appears that Stephen Curry’s has come to an end. It’s likely that Steve Kerr will use this as an opportunity to develop his young talent.
The Warriors desire not to return this season lies in the hands of NBA commissioner Adam Silver.
