What's going on with the Golden State Warriors right now?

They already started their season without Klay Thompson due to a torn ACL. Then disaster struck, as Steph Curry fractured his hand, putting him on the sidelines for the next few months.

So that's it, right? There can't possibly be more injuries to this team which is already without half their roster, right? Wrong! After hurting his thumb Friday night against the Celtics, the Warriors lone healthy star, D'Angelo Russell, will be out for at least two weeks.

It's getting scary at this point. How does one team have so many players get hurt in such a short amount of time?

The only possibilities are that they have a horrific medical staff, or the basketball gods are punishing them for their dominance over the past five years. We'll go with the latter.

Either way, Golden State is now officially in tank mode if they weren't already. Maybe they'll get rewarded for these casualties with the first-overall pick in the upcoming draft.
