Success, like it’s said is more difficult to maintain, than to achieve. This is very applicable to the recent performance of the Warriors. The team have had their fair share of victories; getting to the top of 5 consecutive NBA finals. However, their performance at the beginning of this season failed to be at par with what they are known for. They only got to win their first game on Monday night. This can be partly attributed to the absence of some of their key players and addition of new and younger players. Being on the losing end is no fun for anyone. Nonetheless, the team players are determined to absorb the losses and focus on learning patiently, rebuilding again as it may seem. According to Curry the oldest among his team mates, he is confident that an major improvement will be seen with time. Green also agrees with the idea that the need change would come with time. He also is more focused on adapting a different strategy to fit the present status quo.

Hawks To Play Without Young on Thursday
The Atlanta Hawks would have to play without one of their valuable guards, Trae Young. Trae’s absence at Thursday match would be caused by an ankle sprain that occurred during the second quarter on Tuesday night, due to a false landing. It must have been a very painful experience for the young player. He was quoted saying the sprain had been very painful for the simple fact that through his life, his body had experienced very little injuries. However, the good part about this situation is that the injury may not be needing an MRI and he is expected to be fit enough by next week to join the team on the court.
Blazers to Play in the Absence of Zach, After A Shoulder Injury

His return should be hoped for soon but that an idea of that can only be known after his MRI appointment on Monday, to ascertain the extent of his injury.
