Point guard Baron Davis revealed after the game that he has been dealing with "family issues" since Christmas, and took responsibility for letting those off-court distractions affect his play.
"I have a job and I have to give my teammates 110 percent of me as a basketball player and I haven't been doing that," Davis said. "I have to use basketball as my safe haven to relieve some of the stress and the pressures."
Davis declined to go into further detail aside from saying that the problems did not involve the health of his grandmother, Lela Nicholson. He was not at practice Thursday and said he could miss an additional day "here and there, but I don’t foresee that getting in the way of what we're tying to accomplish here."
Teammate Matt Barnes, who played with Davis at UCLA, said he's noticed the toll the problems have taken on Davis lately. Barnes also has a sympathetic ear: Barnes' mother had a mild heart attack two days ago.
"When it rains, it pours," he said.
and this was posted in my fantasy leauge about Baron as well:
"B. Diddy to miss some games?
Baron Davis, G GS
News: According to the Contra Costa Times, Baron Davis may need to "miss a couple days here or there" while he tends to a family matter.
Analysis: With the Warriors slated for three games next week, Davis could be considered a risky start. If you have a reliable alternative to go to, it's a good idea to use him."

He's trimmed them down. Last season it was a problem, this season it's not.
He just drives and creates more this season or we'll all be down on him for shooting to many threes
