*Editor’s note: Stephen Curry and Draymond Green have been ruled out.
The Golden State Warriors head to New Orleans for the second game in a back-to-back to face the Pelicans.
New Orleans and Golden State couldn’t be in more different positions in the Western Conference standings, with the Warriors occupying the top spot (along with the Suns), and the Pelicans sitting second-last.
The Warriors fell on Wednesday to the Dallas Mavericks, posting their lowest scoring output of the year with 82 points. New Orleans is coming off of a loss to the Suns and haven’t recorded a win since a December 28 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
However, the biggest piece of news heading into this matchup is Stephen Curry’s likely absence. The best shooter of all time injured his quad against the Mavs, and reports indicate Curry is “not optimistic” that he’ll be able to face the Pels.
Klay Thompson remains out for the time being, and Andre Iguodala is questionable due to right knee soreness. For the Pelicans, Kira Lewis and Tomas Satoransky are out along with Zion Williamson, who hasn’t played this season.
Here’s how sharps are taking in all of the information.
