The Golden State Warriors are in desperate need of a win, but they may have to do it without their best player against the Thunder tonight.
The Warriors have three players listed on their injury report: Steph Curry, Draymond Green, and Gary Payton II.
Steph Curry is listed as questionable with a right knee strain, Draymond Green is out due to a league suspension from choking Rudy Gobert, and Gary Payton II is out due to a left foot strain.
Whether or not Steph Curry plays tonight will make all of the difference for the slumping Warriors.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have three players listed on their injury report: Ousmane Dieng, Keyontae Johnson, and Cason Wallace.
Ousmane Dieng is out due to a G League assignment, Keyontae Johnson is out due to a G League two-way, and Cason Wallace is questionable due to a right shoulder sprain. In terms of actual injuries, the Thunder only have one potential injury. As it stands.
As it stands, the Golden State Warriors are currently on a five-game losing streak. The team was 6-2 just a few weeks ago and has not won a game since.
It’s going to be incredibly difficult to beat the Thunder without both Steph Curry and Draymond Green, so the team really needs Steph tonight.
On Saturday evening, the Golden State Warriors will host the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chase Center in California.
For the game, both teams have announced their injury reports (updated as of 4:30 Eastern Time).
The Thunder have ruled out Ousmane Dieng and Keyontae Johnson.
Cason Wallace is available.
Meanwhile, the Warriors will be without Draymond Green and Gary Payton II.
Steph Curry, who has missed each of the previous two games, remains listed as questionable on the 4:30 injury report.
The Thunder and Warriors also faced off on Thursday (at the Chase Center), and the Thunder won the game by a score of 128-109.
Shai Gilgeous-Alexander led the way with 24 points, two rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block while shooting 6/21 from the field and 3/7 from the three-point range in 29 minutes of playing time.
The Thunder are 8-4 in their first 12 games and in the middle of a four-game winning streak.
They are the fourth seed in the Western Conference and an impressive 4-1 in the five games they have played on the road away from Oklahoma City.
