Bazemore violated the shower code, which is that if all the showers are occupied when a veteran enters, he must give his up regardless of where he is in his hygiene routine. (Apparently Stephen Curry entered and Bazemore said something to the effect of, “Just give me a minute.”) Ezeli’s indiscretion was helping himself to a plate of food on the team plane ahead of the veterans. “We didn’t do it just because they were rookies,” Lee said. “There was cause and effect.” Bleacher Report

Point guard Stephen Curry participated in noncontact drills in the Warriors' light practice at UCLA on Thursday. So the Golden State star, who missed the home loss to Memphis the day before, is one step closer to returning from a mild concussion. If all goes well, Curry could be in the lineup Friday night when the Los Angeles Lakers host the Warriors. Oakland Tribune

Point guard Stephen Curry participated in non-contact drills in the Warriors’ light practice at UCLA on Thursday, presumably meaning his headache has dissipated. Curry missed Wednesday’s loss to visiting Memphis because of a mild concussion, sustained Monday at Utah. His only symptom, according to the Warriors, was a headache. If he is symptom free following the work he did today, he can advance to the next step in the concussion protocol: contact practice. Contra Costa Times

If you ask Stephen Curry, it’s a no-brainer who he wants to defend when the Warriors host the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight: Russell Westbrook. The same goes for Chris Paul. For Derrick Rose. For Tony Parker. Curry wants, as he said after Thursday’s shoot around, to defend all the best point guards. “Of course I do,” Curry said. But that assignment usually goes to guard Klay Thompson, Curry’s backcourt mate. Thompson is 6-foot-7 with good athleticism and size who is sneaky good at moving laterally and contesting shots. It causes problems for point guards, especially the smaller ones, and it makes Thompson much better at keeping them out of the paint than Curry. Contra Costa Times

That leads him to get in Jackson’s ear, just as he does when he’s trying to talk Jackson to let him play through an injury. “I’m allowed to lobby,” Curry said, “but I’m sure he has his mind made up before I even approach him. They’re healthy conversations. I’ve been working on the defensive part of my game. But I’m trying to stick to the game plan. I don’t have to do anything special, just do what they’re asking me to do. I think I can do that every night.” Contra Costa Times

Joe Lacob: With Curry, Bob (Myers) and I felt strongly that we had rarely seen an ankle destroy somebody's career. A knee, yes. But ankles usually recover. And we had to make a decision on a guy who was everything we wanted to represent the franchise. He's a great player and person. He also had to take a risk. It was risky, but assuming he was going to be healthy we thought we were getting a pretty good deal. I'm sure he'll make plenty of money in his career, get it back someday if he feels he is underpaid. He certainly could make that argument. We felt the ankle wasn't going to destroy his career.

No financial details were disclosed. Sportspromedia.com

Rusty Simmons: The Warriors are saying Stephen Curry has a left foot bone bruise. It must be a different injury than the right knee that initially hurt. Twitter @Rusty_SFChron
