Warriors notebook: Anthony Randoph's injury puts him out at least a week

Warriors notebook: Anthony Randoph's injury puts him out at least a week Injury a setback for improving Randolph

DENVER Warriors assistant coach Keith Smart said Anthony Randolph had found his stride during Monday night's game against the Indiana Pacers. Now Randolph will have to wait at least a week before he's able to regain that same form.

The Warriors announced before Tuesday's game against the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center that Randolph has a left ankle sprain and will be out of the lineup for 7-14 days. Randolph rolled his left ankle midway through the third quarter of Monday's home game and did not make the trip to Denver with the Warriors early Tuesday.

Randolph, who had played in every game this season, was 5-of-6 from the floor with 12 points when the injury occurred. Randolph's been averaging 11.5 points per game.

"He was on the verge of having a good game," Smart said of Randolph's performance Monday night. "He was in a good place in practice the day after the Lakers game."

The Warriors play Houston and Orlando on Thursday and Saturday, respectively, before going on a five-game road trip. It's possible Randolph would join the team on that trip or just wait for the Dec. 16 home game against San Antonio.

The team also announced that guard Raja Bell will have wrist surgery Thursday in Charlotte, N.C., by Dr. Paul Perlik. Bell will be out for the season if screws are needed to repair the injury, or just a few weeks if screws are not needed.

Smart said before the game that Ronny Turiaf would be a game-time decision after the center/forward also hobbled off the Oracle Arena court with an apparent knee injury Monday night. Turiaf said Tuesday that he was available against the Nuggets but did not enter the game.

Smart said he'll meet with coach Don Nelson today. It appears there's nothing standing in the way of Nelson returning to the bench for Thursday's game against the Rockets.

Randolph will host a holiday shopping spree for 10 children from Berkeley Youth Alternatives today at 3 p.m. at the adidas Sports Performance Store on Market Street in San Francisco.
