Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has every reason to be optimistic about their playoff chances. After all, given that they had to battle injuries and key absences throughout the 2021-22 season and still finished third in the West, it shows how deep they are and what they are capable of.

Of course the Warriors still have to get healthy. Stephen Curry’s status for Game 1 of their playoffs showdown with the Denver Nuggets remain in limbo as he recovers from his foot injury he sustained last March. But still, the idea of a healthy Golden State team is exciting for Kerr.

“Potentially getting everyone healthy is really tantalizing,” Kerr said, per NBC Sports. “We have persevered this season through a lot of injuries and absences. If we could get Steph back healthy and keep Andre on the floor, it would be the first time all year. We will have our main guys healthy at the same time.

“That’s exciting because I think that means our ceiling is higher than what we have shown so far.”

Steve Kerr’s statement is not without merit. They really haven’t been healthy all season long. After Klay Thompson returned midway through the campaign, Draymond Green got injured, and then Stephen Curry. While they did have a lot of losing streaks as well, the fact that they were still able to finish as a Top 3 team in the ultra competitive West says a lot about their depth.

Consistency is a big issue, something that the Warriors struggled with for the most part. Nonetheless, if Stephen Curry returns and Andre Iguodala, Klay and Dray are able to stay healthy, they will be a difficult team to beat–especially with the tons of playoff experience those four have.
