After exploring the options, Leandro Barbosa will undergo was minor procedure to remove a cyst from his right (shooting) wrist. As we reported after Friday's game, the cyst had caused swelling, loss of mobilities and discomfort and was impacting Leandro's shooting abilities.

Recover time is estimated at 4 weeks.

Jason Richardson will get the start tonight with Goran Dragic getting more minutes. Steve Kerr said it was too soon to consider a D-league player to fill the role of emergency back-up to the back-up guard. Both Dudley and Hill can play the shooting guard if needed.
