NBA News: Without Gary Payton II, where do the Warriors stand?

After scoring eight points, seven assists, and three rebounds in 23 minutes in Game 1, Payton’s time in this series is up. In Game 2, he only appeared for two minutes. He’s been one of the team’s better stories this year, going from the G League to a viable rotation player for a contender.

Payton’s defense, in especially, will be missed. He was promoted to the starting lineup by the Warriors because he was the best choice to guard Grizzlies standout Ja Morant. Without him, the Warriors would have lost the game by 47 points.

The Warriors have a slew of perimeter players to throw against Morant, but none of them appear to be on the same level as Payton.

The good news is that Payton’s season isn’t over yet, as a three-week comeback would put him in the middle of the Western Conference playoffs if the Warriors go that far. Even a five-week return may get him back in time to watch the NBA Finals, which start on June 2nd.
