Lack of depth and injuries absolutely sank the Golden State Warriors last season. Now? They have enough usable bodies to compete, but can they stay healthy?

In this episode of "Basketball by Association," NBA assistant editors Ethan Norof and Joel C. Cordes break down all the key roster losses and additions, discuss the biggest storylines to watch and set realistic expectations for the Warriors.

(If the embedded player fails to load, you can find the episode here.)

The arrivals of Jarrett Jack and Carl Landry, along with the drafting of Harrison Barnes, Festus Ezeli and Draymond Green mean that the Warriors finally have capable subs. What roles will each of these newcomers play?

Can Harrison Barnes be an opening day starter at small forward, or will that role belong to Brandon Rush or even Richard Jefferson?

What's the true ceiling for this front line and defense if Andrew Bogut can stay healthy? 

Is Steph Curry a true NBA point guard, and how will he mesh with rising star Klay Thompson over the course of a full season?

What style will Mark Jackson have this new roster playing, and what's his leash if they miss the playoffs yet again?

Bleacher Report's "Basketball by Association" is your final destination for all things NBA!
