OAKLAND -- Banged-up Warriors big men Andrew Bogut and David Lee returned to limited practice but will be game-day decisions for Friday night's contest against Minnesota, according to coach Mark Jackson.
Bogut (right knee strain) and Lee (left shoulder sprain) were injured in the Warriors' 102-94 loss to Indiana on Monday, with Bogut banging knees with another player and Lee drawing contact from 7-foot-2, 290-pound Indiana center Roy Hibbert.
Lee said he couldn't raise his arm above his head for a day and a half before doing shooting drills Thursday but that he would warm up and try to play through the discomfort.
"This is a very slow healing process, but to be honest with you, when it happened I thought I had dislocated my shoulder 100 percent because of the guy involved," Lee said, adding that an X-ray examination after the game came back negative.
"They told me I was going to be in a lot of pain for these next couple of weeks playing through it, but I've played through worse."
Minnesota would present problems for a short-handed Warriors team, as the Timberwolves feature big men Kevin Love (25.0 points, 13.0 rebounds) and center Nikola Pekovic (18.2 points, 9.2 rebounds).
The Warriors had the most players of any NBA team in the fluid pool of 28 players from which rosters for the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain this summer and 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro will be chosen. No other NBA team had more than two players selected.
Team USA coach Mike Krzyzewski offered high praise of Curry after having coached him on the 2010 World Championship team that won gold in Turkey.
"He's one of the great players in the league," Krzyzewski said. "One of the unique players in the fact that he can play both guard positions because he's such a terrific scorer."
Told of Krzyzewski's comments, Curry said, "Just kind of showing that kind of love, I don't take it for granted."
Iguodala was one of 11 players returning from the 2012 U.S. Olympic gold medal team, including two-time Olympic gold medalists Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Deron Williams.
Lee said it was a goal of his to play in the Olympics. He was named to the 2010-12 national team roster but suffered a finger injury during training camp in 2010 and was unable to continue.
Bogut is interested in playing for Australia in the Olympics, but this offseason he plans to be focused on his NBA career, according to a Warriors spokesman.
Also named to the 2014-16 roster was Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard, a product of Oakland High.
"I think that is going to be a challenge," Lacob said. "We're trying. We're going to keep trying, but you know it could be delayed because the truth is we need to do it right. It's not just about getting it done. It's about getting it done right, making sure that everybody's on board. And so if it takes a year a longer, it takes a year longer."
