Report Update: Al Horford declared out vs. Warriors
The team will likely roll with Kelly Olynyk at center as they have been the past five games.
“Al had by far his best day [Thursday]. He did some 3-on-3, some 1-on-1, went up and down. Felt pretty good,” Stevens told ESPN’s Chris Forsberg. “Hopefully, barring no setbacks, we’re closer than further with him.”
“The No. 1 thing is you want to play defense,” said Stevens. “You don’t want to play in transition.”
The Warriors boast a fully healthy lineup and coach Steve Kerr plans on no restrictions for his starters, but said he could pull some on Saturday on the back end of the back-to-back against the Milwaukee Bucks, according to Anthony Slater of the San Jose Mercury News.
