Steve Kerr handled the team well

The Warriors really dug deep into their bench to fill the gap left by Stephen Curry. Players like Jordan Poole and Donte DiVincenzo have seen an increase in minutes during Curry’s absence. Klay Thompson, on the other hand, has been doing everything in his power to keep the Warriors afloat and help Poole while he’s on the floor.

But with more players missing out, one can only wonder how deep the Warriors’ bench can go. Head coach Steve Kerr had already been playing with a nine-man squad during their win against the Portland Trail Blazers in their last matchup. But losing another player means that the team stands on an eight-man squad now.

Now, the real question is, will the Warriors be able to take down a stacked Atlanta Hawks team in their next matchup? Let us know what you think in the comments section down below.
