David Lee out, Andrew Bogut ill vs. Kings


I wanted Steve Kerr – who was leaning toward bringing Andre Iguodala off the bench for Harrison Barnes – to stick with the same starting lineup as last season.

Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Iguodala, David Lee and Andrew Bogut were just so darn effective last season.

But the new coach won’t even have the option of maintaining that continuity when the Warriors open their season against the Kings tonight.

Rusty Simmons of SFGate:

Draymond Green will start Wednesday night’s season-opener against the Kings as power forward David Lee continues to deal with a left hamstring strain, according to Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

Green meshed well with the other starters last year, but if only Golden State had all of them available.

Monte Poole of CSN Bay Area:



Well that leaves the Warriors awfully thin up front. A limited Festus Ezeli and Ognjen Kuzmic are probably overmatched.

DeMarcus Cousins should be licking his chops.
