Warriors back-up guard Acie Law will finally succumb to his ailing right wrist.
Law didn’t make the trip to Oklahoma City because he was having his wrist examined by San Francisco hand specialist Dr. William Green. According to the exam, Law is suffering from bone spurs in his right wrist and will undergo season-ending surgery. He will be examined again in New York and the surgery could be performed as soon as later this week.
You know what that means … Jeremy Lin is the back-up point guard the rest of the way. Right?
Law played 40 games with the Warriors, averaging 5.1 points and 1.6 assists in 15.8 minutes. Law became a staple in the rotation, leading the second unit and winning coach Keith Smart over with his defense and energy. Law is a free agent at season’s end.
Should the Warriors re-sign him?
I say it wouldn’t hurt. He’ll be relatively cheap. He’s good for the consistency and rapport in the locker room. He gives them a defensive option. But of course, the answer to that question depends on who’s running the bench, and the Warriors front office, by the start of next season, and how the roster has changed.
