A look at the Golden State Warriors' playoff picture

When: Sunday, 3:30 p.m.

Nurkic said Friday that if the decision were up to him, he'd suit up for this weekend's playoff opener, but being that the Blazers will determine whether he plays, the Bosnian's status remains in limbo.

Lillard and the Blazers have their work cut out for them. The dates, times, and TV schedule for the 2017 NBA Playoffs are listed below, laying out the Portland Trail Blazers vs. The Trail Blazers sat a total of five players Monday night due to injury. The Warriors had four members of the Western Conference All-Star team in Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Kevin Durant, while the Blazers had zero All-Stars this year. Portland made every game with Golden State competitive during round two of the 2016 playoffs, and the Warriors should expect nothing different this time around.

In an interview after the Blazers' final game of the regular season, Damian Lillard was asked about his thoughts on the Portland-Golden State matchup. Cleveland would be the obvious first choice to face in the championship round considering past events, but the Warriors will take on whoever they have to in order to redeem themselves from last season. For those Rip City fans keeping score at home, it's a full season sweep by the Warriors, showing the team as a clear favorite in this first-round series.

Game 1 of the Warriors-Blazers series starts on Sunday, April 16 at the Oracle Arena in Damian Lillard's hometown of Oakland, California, per NBA.com.
