The Warriors will miss the playoffs this season for the first time in the Steve Kerr era.
Both Robinson and Burks are in their first seasons with the Dubs. Robinson is averaging 12.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 48 games, while Burks is putting up 16.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
The Warriors have no players going to the All-Star game this season for the first time since 2012. Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson have been out with injuries, Kevin Durant is no longer on the team, while Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell aren’t having All-Star caliber campaigns.
Golden State could trade Russell before the deadline. After going to the NBA Finals for five straight seasons, Kerr and his squad are now sellers this 2019-20.
