The Golden State Warriors are about to enter uncharted territory for the next few weeks.
Two-time MVP Stephen Curry will miss at least the next two weeks due to an ankle injury, and Warriors general manager Bob Myers is interested in seeing how his team will adapt without the cornerstone of the franchise.
"Of course I'm curious," Myers told Zach Lowe of ESPN. "I'm always curious. I was curious when Kevin (Durant) went down (last season). But I've seen what our team looks like without Kevin. This will be new."
Save for missing a month in the 2016 playoffs, Curry has been completely healthy dating back to 2012. During that time, the Warriors built an entire dynasty around his transcendent offensive brilliance, but now they'll have to find a new way to win.
Granted, the Warriors will still have more talent than most teams in the league, as nobody will be crying poor for a Warriors team that will still feature Durant, Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and a host of quality role players.
But since so much of Golden State's offense is generated either directly from Curry, or as a by-product of how defenses react to his scoring threat, the Warriors will have to go to the drawing board.
"It'll be an opportunity to evaluate all types of things. You always learn in these moments," Myers told Lowe.
