Just when it looked like the Golden State Warriors were finally coming together as a complete unit again, another roadblock is thrown their way.
The Warriors’ big three, when healthy, was one of the best in the league.
Few other teams could compete with the Warriors when Green, Curry, and Thompson were fully healthy.
But injuries kept getting in the way – especially Thompson’s year-long battle with his multiple injuries.

The reunion the big three just had was brief, sadly.
Curry was injured in a game earlier this week and, while the situation isn’t as bad as it could be, he is now sidelined indefinitely.
That means that this Warriors trio played one full game after 1,005 days apart.
Fans of the Warriors are definitely heartbroken by this news – but does it spell the end of the season for them?
Warriors Fight On
Curry is out for the time being but thankfully most people believe he will be able to return for the postseason.
If that’s the case, the Warriors just need to tread water and stay alive for a few more weeks and that seems very doable considering their place in the Western Conference standings.
Right now, Golden State is seeded third in the West with a record of 47-23.
They may fall down a bit without Curry but the chances of them falling out of playoff contention are slim.
However, they will need Curry to come back truly healthy if they wish to make a run at the Finals.
But if he does come back in great shape and Thompson and Green stay healthy too then they really do have a chance at winning it all again this year.
