The Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr says he will sit down with the team’s training staff, Steph Curry and general manager Bob Myers after practice Friday and make a game plan for the guard’s return. The Warriors remain hopeful Curry will return Sunday against the Wizards, but the organization hasn’t made a final decision.

During an appearance on Showtime’s “All The Smoke” podcast, the Brooklyn Nets superstar Kevin Durant railed against the notion that marijuana use continues to have a “stigma around it” despite its continued legalization and decriminalization on a state-by-state basis across the country.

“It’s one of those plants that’s an acquired taste. If you love it, you love it. If you don’t, you’re not even going to be pick it up. It shouldn’t even be a discussion these days,” Durant said, as transcribed in a New York Post article. “It’s just like, marijuana is marijuana. It’s not harmful to anybody. It can only help and enhance and do good things. I feel like it shouldn’t even be a huge topic around it anymore.”

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green was ejected from Thursday’s 116-86 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers after picking up two technical fouls in the second quarter. He now has 14 technical on the season, meaning two more will earn him an automatic one-game suspension.

Giannis Antetokounmpo is silencing his doubters still claim he’s not the best player in the world, as defenses can just collapse the paint and expose him in the playoffs because of his lack of range. Giannis is far from a sharpshooter; he gets more criticism for not taking that many three-pointers than a lot of starting point guards in the league that have been even worse.

To put it in context, Giannis has knocked down 77 three-pointers this season. While unimpressive, it’s still more than half of the league’s starting point guards or point guards that are playing big minutes.
