Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Anthony Randolph’s injured left ankle has been put in a protective boot for an additional 30 days. This puts Randolph well behind schedule for his recovery, and likely means he’ll miss the rest of the season.
Randolph is one of the league’s most intriguing young talents and a budding fan favorite around the league. He failed to have the breakout season many were expecting him to enjoy this season, due to some serious holes in his game and Don Nelson constantly changing Randolph’s role in the rotation. Randolph’s incredible upside is one reason Warrior fans continue to have faith in their team. Now it looks like they’ll have to wait until next season to see if Randolph can live up to his potential and help make the Warriors relevant again.
