Casspi (ankle) did some on-court work Wednesday and is considered day-to-day ahead of Friday's game against the Hawks, Mark Medina of the Mercury News reports. Casspi has missed the last two games after tweaking his right ankle, but it appears he has an outside shot of getting back on the court for Friday's contest after putting in some on-court work Wednesday. While that will ultimately depend on how the ankle feels following the increase in activity, it's till encouraging that a return seems to be forthcoming, With Kevin Durant (ribs) likely out and Draymond Green (abdomen) highly questionable after sitting out Wednesday's practice, Casspi would provide some much-needed help in the frontcourt Friday if he's ultimately cleared to play.
Casspi's ankle injury is now considered a tweak and he's been upgraded to day-to-day, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. It was announced earlier Saturday that Casspi was expected to miss around one week of action due to a right ankle sprain. However, it appears an MRI revealed just a tweak and the team is now listing him as day-to-day moving forward. Casspi still isn't going to play in Saturday's game against the Suns, but could then return ahead of Monday's tilt with the Spurs. With the likes of Klay Thompson (thumb), Steph Curry (ankle) and Kevin Durant (ribs) all dealing with multi-game absences, Casspi could see a sizable role once cleared.
Casspi underwent an MRI on Saturday, which revealed a right ankle sprain. He is expected to be sidelined "around one week", Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Casspi left Friday's game against the Kings due to the injury, which is serious enough to cause him to miss about a week. The earliest he could return is likely Friday's contest against the Hawks. In the meantime, Kevon Looney and David West are candidates to see extended run.
Casspi exited Friday's matchup against Sacramento with a sprained right ankle, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle report. Casspi suffered a right ankle sprain against the Kings, leaving the Warriors with little depth. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant are all out, so Golden State will turn to Andre Iguodala and Kevon Looney for more production until their stars return. News about the severity of Casspi's injury should emerge in the near future.
Casspi will come off the bench Wednesday against the Blazers. Casspi will return to his usual bench role Wednesday as Draymond Green returns to the starting lineup. Green sat out the last game with a finger injury, and Casspi posted 18 points and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes. Casspi should see a smaller role, as he averages 15.1 minutes per game.
