Monta Elllis is done for the year due to a left ankle injury, and according to the San Francisco Chronicle the Warriors may also end the season without fellow guard Jamal Crawford.
Though Golden State officials stressed that the injury is on the opposite side of the foot that Ellis severely damaged during his moped accident last summer, the 23-year-old is expected to be rehabbing for the next two weeks.
Crawford sat out with a strained lower back and will not make the trip to Utah for today's back-t0-back finisher. He said he began feeling discomfort during pregame warm-ups Wednesday against Minnesota, but gutted out a 31-point performance before the pain and stiffness worsened.
Coach Don Nelson has already said that a team featuring both Crawford and Ellis will not work, and he wants Stephen Jackson to start at shooting guard next season.
If Crawford does not opt out of his contract this summer, then the Warriors are going to try to trade the high scoring guard.
