OAKLAND – The Warriors will be without shooting guard Monta Ellis for Saturday’s game against the Philadelphia 76ers at Oracle Arena. Ellis missed practice on Friday and is in Mississippi for the funeral of his grandmother, Mary Cole.

“Bottom line is he’s a family member going through something right now,” Jackson said. “Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family. He can take as much time as he sees fit. There’s no pressure at all. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.”

My heart goes out to Monta, but I really hope he can join the team on the road. Kinda scary not to have him & Curry at the same time. Hopefully Rush is inserted into the starting lineup. I aint got much faith in Klay yet at this point.

idk about that i like what rush brings to the second unit and yes if no monta he should play alot of those minutes but i like the idea of him coming off the bench and bringing all that energy

Of course, I feel for Monta. Monta, rest up for however long you are out.

Family first. Monta has done so much for this team, and you can tell his head isn't in the game right now. This is in the best interest for Monta & the Warriors. I still think we can win with Rush at SG.

That's sad. Wish the best for him and hope he comes back with a clear mind. But even then, that might take a while.

Sucks cause he's our best player, and totally sucks for me cause he's like the best player on my fantasy team. Now I got Eric Gordon and him out for a few games :confused:

Gordon is playing tonight. I got him on my other fantasy team.

Obviously, it's tough to be upset at Monta for missing any time, but it will suck to not have him out there. Hopefully he's able to rejoin the team soon and Curry doesn't miss any more time. We need at least one of those guys out there...

I think he will come back when we start the road trip. He just wants to get his mind right & pay respect to his grandma.

I really appreciate the attitude Mark Jackson has about this. God bless Monta and his family, may he return when he is ready.

Yeah, Jackson lost his brother a couple years ago. I'm sure he knows how Monta feels.

ehhhh.... I dunno, its kinda frusterating.

I love how people give monta time cuz family comes first and bla bla. Monta didnt seem to be putting family first when he was having whatever relationship he had with that employee last season..... its interesting when a player chooses for family to be important to him.


his wife and son werent important enough to him to stay loyal.... but who knows, maybe this is different?

Where? I highly doubt it. The only reason he started last game was because he was the best available point guard. Curry & Rush is a better back court then Smith & Curry.

You can't speak on what you don't know. Don't judge someone unless you are fully informed.

And he didn't even cheat on his wife..maybe he was flirting w this girl but she had to have flirted back for him to send her a pic of his genitals..do people not realize this? That it takes two to tango for their relationship to get to that point??

people do it all the time, its called having a personal opinion. Its pretty much the foundation of these message boards... considering very few people know first hand what they are talking about in regards to nba basketball or pro sports in general.

1)I dont know how far he went, but his actions were not putting his family first.

2) The girl has no obligation not to flirt with monta, the article said she was single. She can do whatever she wants. Monta is the one with a wife and he is the one with an obligation to someone

3) Even if the girl was married and "it does take two to tango"... that doesnt make monta any less at fault and doesnt make his actions any less effective to his family.

4) Im ok with monta missing the game and this is nothing against a grandmother passing away. I understand its hard to go through that. I just said its frusterating which times he decides to put his family first. If he is going to be inconsistant... could he do it in a way where it doesnt effect the teams record?

5) Monta had a pass for going on the moped, hes out of PTO for the duration of his contract. If he was playing 75-80 games a year through out- It wouldnt annoy me as much.

And so they’re still analyzing all the data that we collected, and I changed to a different style of Nikes for tomorrow. Hopefully, that will help and I think we’ve found a fit to avoid those injuries.

Question: What’s the new one?

Stephen Curry: It’s called the Brave, the Hyperbrave. It’s a little lower and a little wider on my foot and it fits to my foot a little better than the ones I had been wearing.

Question: And you were wearing Hyperdunks before?

Stephen Curry: That one and another one called the Hyperlearners. They’re still great shoes. Nike. But with my foot it didn’t fit right and being secure on the floor is of the utmost importance right now.

Question: What’s the new taping routine?

Stephen Curry: Like I’ve done before, I’ve done taping and bracing to give it extra security. I don’t want it to be too tight where I’m not able to make the moves I’m normally making or it changes the mechanics of my jump shot. Because all that starts at the feet and works its way up.

I’m using a different style of tape and kind of anchoring it a little more so it naturally rolls in, so I’m not more prone to rolling my ankle to the outside if I’m running straight-ahead or making a cut or a move or something like that. I think it will work.

If he's talking about the shoes he is going to wear, he has to be playing.

That would be epic :laugh: Currys ankle won't last a possession in those things though. Ellis or Lee should bring them back.

Chucks were bad shoes. They look cool but they had no support whatsoever.

Stylez,

a death is different than infidelity. While I agree that Monta is being selective of when to care about family first, they are two totally different things. But it wont matter if we win the game tonight..
