  • WARRIORS VS. TIMBERWOLVES
    The Warriors will play the Timberwolves on Monday for the first of three times this season. Golden State has won six of its last seven meetings with Minnesota, and both teams will go into Monday's contest with injury concerns regarding their starting point guards. Stephen Curry has missed the last four games as he recovers from a sprained right ankle and Minnesota's Ricky Rubio is out for the season with a torn ACL in his left knee. The Timberwolves have lost four out of their last five games, and the Warriors will be looking to a snap a three-game skid of their own.


  • ACTIVE AT THE DEADLINE
    The Warriors were one of the most active team's at the NBA's trade deadline. In addition to the Bogut deal with Milwaukee, the Warriors acquired Richard Jefferson, T.J. Ford and a first round pick from the Spurs in exchange for Stephen Jackson, who came to the Warriors in the deal with Milwaukee. Golden State also purchased a 2012 second-round draft pick from the Atlanta Hawks. For a complete recap of the team's recent roster moves, click here.


  • JEFFERSON MAKES HIS WARRIORS DEBUT
    Richard Jefferson had nine points, seven rebounds and three assists in his Warriors debut on Saturday. The veteran swingman struggled with his shot during his 38 minutes on the floor, but that's not a cause for concern for Head Coach Mark Jackson: "Hell be fine, hes going to be fine. Missed some shots, a little bit out of sync, but hes going to be fine. We are not worried about him. We know exactly who he is."
