Casspi loses starting position just before NBA playoffs

Israeli basketball player Omri Casspi lost his starting position with the Golden State Warriors, just days before the NBA playoffs begin.
For many weeks there have been rumors of Casspi losing his starting role; however, the rumors became a reality after the Warriors lost to New Orleans on Saturday. Casspi will be replaced by Quinn Cook on the official Golden State Warriors roster.
According to ESPN, Casspi is suffering from inflammation and a bruised bone on the side of his right foot, which inhibits his ability to run.
