At this point in the season, like in the pros and many other college programs, the Warriors have had to ease up on the ferocity of practices.
For yesterday’s practice, the Warriors cut out two five-minute periods. They also put a few key players on limited-contact status.
It makes sense. It gives players an additional day for their bodies to recuperate, as well as provide more practice reps for developing players. And the way things have gone, developing players need to be ready to play.
