OAKLAND -- They've been home for three days now, but the Warriors are still feeling the effects of the preseason trip to China.

"I had a good night's sleep last night," coach Mark Jackson said, "so it's getting better."

"Give me one more day," Stephen Curry said. "I'm almost there."

The 10-day excursion to the Far East -- in the middle of training camp, no less -- ruined their rhythm and threw their sleep patterns out of whack. NBA players are creatures of habit, especially on game days. That was completely distorted on the trip.

If they weren't traveling to tour sites, they were doing community service or playing the role of ambassador on the trip. They got one day off, Wednesday in Shanghai. The rest was a packed schedule crammed between 15-hour trips.

"The China trip's taken a lot out of us," center Andrew Bogut said. "It's been a tough trip. Lot of guys are still sleeping till 5 in the afternoon and waking up at 2 in the morning. It is tough. ... We didn't get as much as we'd like out of that trip."

It's definitely taking some time for Golden State to acclimate to normalcy again. With the season a week away, recapturing a groove is of utmost importance. The Warriors have two exhibition games remaining, followed by five off days before opening the 2013-14 season against the visiting Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 30.

Jackson said while his team is still recovering from the long trip, it is "ready" and "anxious" for the games to matter.

"I just want to keep on getting better," Jackson said. "I will probably establish more of a rotation in one of the games. ... Make sure that we remain healthy and continue to build towards the first game of the season."

  • The NBA's annual general manager survey was released Tuesday. The league surveys all 30 G.M.s about the upcoming season.

    The Warriors were voted the most fun to watch team, receiving 41.4 percent of the vote. Stephen Curry was voted best pure shooter (44.8 percent). And the Warriors' acquisition of Andre Iguodala tied for the most surprising move of the offseason (21.4 percent).

    One of the most interesting Warriors results involved Curry. He finished tied for third in the best shooting guard category, with Kevin Durant and Paul George.

    Considering Curry is the Warriors' starting point guard, is that a compliment or a lack of respect?

    "I don't know what to say about that," Curry said, later adding. "I'm a point guard that likes to shoot the ball. If that's what they're getting at ... I'll play the position the way I play it and not worry about how people view it or think I can't play the traditional point guard style of play. That's not my game. I play the way I play."

  • Forward Harrison Barnes sat out of practice again. He won't play in Wednesday's exhibition at Sacramento, Jackson said, which means Klay Thompson will start.

  • Jackson said he wouldn't decide the fate of the training camp invites until after the final exhibition game. Dewayne Dedmon and Seth Curry figure to be the favorites for the last roster spot. Jackson speaks highest of Dedmon.
