The reigning champs will be without their star point guard, Stephen Curry, for at least another week, reports Shams Charania of Yahoo!:
Warriors star Stephen Curry will remain out and be re-evaluated on March 20 as he continues to progress with his tweaked right ankle.

The absence of the only unanimous MVP in NBA history will likely be a concern for the Golden State Warriors: they score 123 points per 100 possessions with Curry on the court compared to 108.1 without him, a 14.9-point difference, per Basketball Reference. The mental impact is there, too, as last year’s NBA Finals MVP Kevin Durant noted that “It’s weird not having Steph out there.”
