J-Rich stayed home

The Warriors will try to win in San Antonio tonight, and Houston tomorrow, without their starting shooting guard. Jason Richardson remained in the Bay Area to rest his ailing left knee.
Richardson will get a week to rest as a result, as the Warriors won’t play again until Saturday. He needed to do something, because he’s look rather unimpressive the last few games. I wouldn’t expect him to be back to full speed until after the All-Star break.
This probably means Monta Ellis is back in the starting lineup tonight.
