 OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -Golden State forward Matt Barnes has a sprained finger on his shooting hand, adding another injury to the winless Warriors' early woes.
Barnes, a key part of the Warriors' postseason run last spring, was injured in the Warriors' loss to Cleveland on Tuesday night, coach Don Nelson said.
Barnes, who missed Wednesday's practice, dislocated the knuckle on the ring finger of his right hand. The injury could sideline him when Golden State hosts Dallas on Thursday night in a rematch of last season's playoff shocker, when the Warriors became the first No. 8 seed to beat a No. 1 seed.
``I don't know how he could possibly catch a ball,'' Nelson said. ``He played through it, but it's all swollen and discolored now.''
Barnes missed practice Wednesday along with guard Monta Ellis, who felt lightheaded when he reported to the Warriors' training complex.
Ellis, who scored 22 points against the Cavaliers, was sent home with the flu, while starting forward Kelenna Azubuike has a lingering bone bruise in his ankle that hasn't improved much since the summer.
``It just hasn't been right,'' said Azubuike, the Warriors' biggest early-season surprise after averaging 16.8 points and 3.8 rebounds in their first four games. ``I might have to just play on it and get treatment. I think it's something I can play with, as long as it feels better than it did last night.''
The Warriors already are without guard Troy Hudson (left hip) and forward Austin Croshere (back).
