The Golden State Warriors are coming off a 115-101 loss to the Orlando Magic. They didn’t show up on either end of the court, and if they want to win at home again, they’ll have to be more efficient in this one.
Injury Report: Klay Thompson SG (Knee) is questionable. JaMychal Green PF (Illness), James Wiseman C (Ankle), and Jonathan Kuminga PF (Foot) are out. Steph Curry PG (Shoulder) is listed as probable.
Klay Thompson missed Saturday’s game against Orlando due to a sore left knee, but he practiced and scrimmaged on Monday. He’ll most likely return to action the next day, while Stephen Curry (shoulder) is also questionable against Phoenix.
Thompson has averaged 33.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 39.2 minutes per game over his last five games, but if Curry is cleared to return, he’ll likely split more backcourt time Tuesday.
Stephen Curry (shoulder) is questionable for this game.
The 34-year-old is officially listed as questionable on the Warriors’ injury report. Regardless of his official designation, he’s been making good progress recently, having participated in practice on Friday before another full session on Monday.
He hasn’t played since Dec. 14, so if he’s cleared to play against the Suns, his workload may be monitored.
