The Warriors will likely be without a key rotation piece for the rest of the second-round series against the Grizzlies, and maybe beyond, if they go to the Conference Finals. Marreese Speights suffered a calf strain in the Warriors’ 99-89 loss to the Grizzlies on Saturday.
Warriors say forward Marreese Speights had an MRI this morning that revealed a moderate right calf strain & will be re-evaluated in a week.

Speights played a key role on the bench for the Warriors this season but he hasn’t played much in the playoffs. He’s averaged 7.3 minutes per game, 4 points and 2.3 rebounds. The injury means the Warriors will be expecting more out of David Lee going forward.
