The Golden State Warriors announced Sunday that back up big man Marreese Speights may miss the remainder of their second round Playoff series against the Memphis Grizzlies due to a strained right calf.

The team says Speights will be re-evaluated in a week’s time.

Per the AP:

The Warriors said Sunday that Speights had an MRI exam that showed a moderate strain, and the forward will be re-evaluated in one week.


Golden State trails Memphis 2-1 in the Western Conference semifinal with Game 4 on Monday night. The timetable could allow Speights possibly to return for Game 7 on May 17.


Speights was hurt in the fourth quarter Saturday night of a 99-89 loss to Memphis, and he hopped off the court to the locker room. He had nine points in the game, including six in a 41-second span just before hurting his calf.
