The Warriors find themselves in the middle of a mini injury crisis, how will they cope?
Steph Curry and others are out ahead of Pistons showdown
The Golden State Warriors are going to be with some key players on Friday night when they face the Detroit Pistons. To begin with star guard Stephen Curry is sidelined with a hip problem. Then there is Draymond Green who is suffering from right thigh issues along with Andre Iguodala whose right knee is sore. Last but not least there is Otto Porter Jr. who has a problem with his left foot and is set to miss yet another game.
Speaking on his problem on Thursday after the Warriors defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers, Curry admitted that his hip was still bothering him after a collision with Brooklyn Nets guard James Harden in Tuesday's win over the Nets. "I'll get an assessment," Curry said at the time. "That charge really messed with me a little bit, so I'm just trying to deal with that a little bit. So we'll see how it feels when I wake up.
The Warriors choose to rest players as well
Coming into Friday's game the Warriors are boasting the best record in the league at 13-2. While the injuries are unfortunate they have actually strategically selected to rest some of their key players, having just completed four consectuive games on the East Coast. They will be hopeful of an energetic response come Sunday when they face the Toronto Raptors at home.
