The postponement of Thursday night’s game against the Nuggets brought at least one silver lining for the Warriors: For the first time since he suffered a torn ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 Finals, Klay Thompson scrimmaged with Stephen Curry. sfchronicle.com/sports/warrior…10:41 PM

Steve Kerr on James Wiseman entering protocol: “Minor setback, but yet another one.”
Belief is Wiseman will exit protocols quickly and be able to advance to on court contact work pic.twitter.com/0gVbAKuLBH9:39 PM

Fun evolution on Curry/Embiid empty corner p&r…
1. Curry pull-up.
2. Mills leaves Maxey to guard nail. No advantage, but Embiid good.
3. Mills at nail, Maxey relo to corner 3.
4. Mills stays w/ Maxey. Curry pull-up again.
5. Aldridge switches the screen. Embiid posts Durant. pic.twitter.com/3grp6TASfq9:37 PM

ORCHARD ROSTER MOVE: We’ve signed Davon Reed to another 10-Day contract.

Klay Thompson took part in a scrimmage today in Denver on the same team as Steph Curry and Andrew Wiggins. First time he’s ever played with Wiggins.

Bradley Beal now has 10 assists with 3:55 to play. It’s his second double-digit assist game of the season, tying his season high, set December 13 in Denver. – 9:05 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr called James Wiseman’s presence in the health and safety protocols “a bump in the road.” Acknowledged that the timing was unfortunate, given that Wiseman was about to get cleared for 3-on-3 work, – 9:05 PM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
Jordan Poole is officially clear for his return, per Steve Kerr. Would’ve played tonight in Denver, will play in Utah on Saturday. – 9:02 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
Steve Kerr made one thing clear tonight: Klay Thompson will start right away when he comes back. – 8:59 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
A silver lining to the postponement: For the first time tonight since the 2019 Finals, Klay Thompson scrimmaged with the starters, including Steph Curry. – 8:59 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Between Durant and LeBron and Steph and Giannis and Jokic, the NBA has a super strong top five right now – 8:42 PM
Gina Mizell @ginamizell
Seth Curry shot 1-for-7 in the first half, but just buried his first jumper of the third and and shook his head like “finally” as he jogged back to the other end of the floor. Harris (2-of-9), Niang (0-for-3), Milton (0-for-5) and Korkmaz (0-for-2) alsp struggling so far. – 8:24 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Full strength Nuggets beat the full strength Warriors in a playoff series have a good night. – 8:12 PM
Noah Levick @NoahLevick
Sixers lead the Nets by 1 at the half because Brooklyn has 11 more turnovers (14-3).
Nets finally started sending aggressive double teams at Joel Embiid late in the second quarter. I’d imagine they’ll keep doing so, especially if Curry and Harris keep missing decent looks. – 8:09 PM
Lauren Rosen @LaurenMRosen
The @Philadelphia 76ers lead the Nets, 55-54, at halftime.
Embiid: 22 PTS / 3 REB / 2 STL
Maxey: 11 PTS / 4 REB / 2 AST
Drummond: 10 PTS / 4 REB
Harris: 4 PTS / 4 REB / 4 AST
Curry: 4 PTS / 2 AST / 2 STL
Thybulle: 4 PTS / 2 STL / 1 BLK – 8:08 PM
Kyle Neubeck @KyleNeubeck
22 in the first half for Embiid, including a banked in stepback three in the final minute. Sixers need one of Harris or Curry to get going in the second half – 8:07 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
Eric Gordon has a true shooting percentage of 62.8% this year, a career high. That’s higher than Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, James Harden, Devin Booker, Damian Lillard, Chris Paul and LeBron James this season. He’s been outstanding. pic.twitter.com/HBpCwadjBn8:01 PM

The good: Sixers off to a great start, leading 10-2 after that Thybulle beakaway dunk.
The bad: Seth Curry is walking gingerly to the Sixers’ huddle. – 7:15 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Sixers start off hot, lead 10-2 prompting Steve Nash to call timeout. Embiid and Curry with a pair of 3s, Matisse Thybulle with a dunk off a steal. Nets just 1-for-6 from the field to start. – 7:14 PM

With tonight’s game postponed, the Warriors will hold a practice in Denver instead, I’m told. They hope to get some extra run time in for Klay and Jordan Poole. Warriors will also practice in Denver tomorrow before heading to Salt Lake City. – 5:50 PM

Alright, I’ve done some work with the schedule and found four total dates that make sense for rescheduling Nuggets-Warriors:
-January 8th
-February 5th
-February 18th
-March 7th
After March 7th, Nuggets play every other day from then til 3rd to last day of the reg season. pic.twitter.com/IEUFnID5zY5:43 PM

The NBA is postponing the Golden State Warriors vs. Denver Nuggets game on Thursday due to health and safety protocols. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2021/12/30/nba…5:08 PM
Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
The NBA announced today that the Golden State Warriors at Denver Nuggets game scheduled for tonight at Ball Arena has been postponed. The Nuggets do not have the league-required eight available players to proceed with the game against the Warriors. – 5:08 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
Think about this: When you would’ve needed Davon Reed’s 10-day to become official just so you’d get to within one of the required total, and THEN need an injured guy to play, it’s time to postpone the game. – 5:00 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
The #Nuggets didn’t have any new positive cases when the decision was made to postpone, but it would’ve required one or two of their questionable players (Gordon, Morris, Cancar, Rivers) to play. Gordon, Morris and Cancar all missed Tuesday’s game vs. GSW.

Draymond Green @Money23Green
Not to mention, this will more than likely add a back to back to our schedule, which is also advantage Denver. – 4:56 PM
Draymond Green @Money23Green
So when the game is rescheduled(which will probably take a day away from our “break”), we wil play them at full strength… But they got to sneak a win when we weren’t at full strength, only two days ago??? Let’s make it make some sense here. – 4:54 PM
Connor Letourneau @Con_Chron
The latest on Nuggets-Warriors, which has been postponed because of a COVID-19 outbreak among Denver: sfchronicle.com/sports/warrior…4:53 PM
Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Has Draymond SEEN Denver’s injury report? There’s no way to get healthy players to Denver in time. – 4:53 PM
Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
As you know by now, Warriors v. Nuggets has been postponed. With 11 players on the injury list — due to covid protocols and other injuries — Denver doesn’t have the needed 8 player minimum available. – 4:50 PM
Draymond Green @Money23Green
How do you continue to cancel games when you’ve implemented rules to prevent this from happening? Is that not a competitive advantage for other teams? The guys we didn’t have due to the protocol list played no role in Tuesdays loss? Pick a side but don’t straddle the fence. – 4:49 PM
Wes Goldberg @wcgoldberg
Mario Chalmers had been with the Nuggets’ G League affiliate but the process to sign a 10-day contract began this morning so that he could be available for tomorrow night’s game in Houston. Chalmers has been training in Miami prior to signing his G League contract. – 4:49 PM
Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Warriors-Nuggets tonight – officially postponed. DEN did not have enough available players to meet minimum requirement of 8 – 4:48 PM
Michael Singer @msinger
The #Nuggets don’t have any new positives, I’m told. This was a practical decision. – 4:48 PM

No late game tonight. It was a light night already games-wise and it got even lighter with the GSW-DEN postponement.
Only three games, all at 7:00 PM ET:
MIL-ORL – 4:46 PM
Kevin Chouinard @KLChouinard
I mean, the Nuggets have been devastated by injury more so than illness and it’s still a bad process.
Teams that know they’re skirting close to low numbers need to have hardship contingencies lined up ready to go. – 4:45 PM
Matt Williams @StatsWilliams
Stephen Curry finished the 2021 calendar year with 507 3-pointers, including reg. season and play-in.
That is the most in a single calendar year all-time (including reg. season, play-in and playoffs).
He averaged 5.45 3-pointers in 2021, also the most all-time. – 4:45 PM
