Warriors’ Marreese Speights Out With Strained Right Calf

by May 11, 2015

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.
