SG Brandon Rush (illness) and PF Adreian Payne (thrombocytopenia) are questionable.
The two frontrunners play in San Antonio on Saturday, and the run-up couldn't be any more daunting for the Warriors. Kerr said he didn't see a foul. Up 98-95, Curry evened the game by making all three free throws.
"A couple tough calls, but that's the way it goes", Kerr said after the game.
Again, it's usually a risky game approaching a Wolves game with any kind of optimism - especially a game against the top team in the Western Conference.
San Antonio also will not be at full strength against Golden State.
Can the Warriors improve beyond the arc? Curry was held scoreless for the final 12 minutes of the contest, and the Warriors scored a new season-low for points in the 99-86 home defeat to Boston. While the team with the NBA's best record boasts more star depth than any other squad in the length, the rotation is not especially deep and isn't necessarily equipped to withstand the loss of one of the NBA's best players for a month or more. The Warriors looked like they were head-and-shoulders above the crowd just a few weeks ago but now it seems like team like the Spurs and Rockets have a shot at claiming the Western Conference. It could be as simple as fatigue prolonging inevitable shooting slumps.More news: NFL Scouting Combine: Whose Rising, Falling and Other Early Observations, Pt. 2
Saturday's game is the Warriors' eighth in 13 days, and the second game in a road back-to-back. Thompson has shot 35% overall from the field in the same time frame.
Curry only hit only one of eight three-pointers, but still finished 26 points. However, plans changed after Durant hyperextended his left knee in Washington.
Golden State still hasn't figured out what works with Kevin Durant sidelined.
"We didn't want to turn the ball over". I won't run guys ragged to get it.
'Whether we get the one seed or not, it's about us just playing better, finding a rhythm down the stretch of the season, ' Curry said. "And it's the right thing to do in terms of the way the season is playing out and the way the minutes have gone and KD's injury.it's the right thing to do, so we're doing it". "The most important thing is to have him healthy, so we'll wait as long as necessary for him to feel secure and the team too". I can't say we don't need it. We made the conscious decision to steer away from high scoring yet inefficient players like Mo Speights and Leandro Barbosa and instead elected to go with stable defense-first players like David West and vanilla, mistake-adverse players like Ian Clark.
