The Golden State Warriors and the Orlando Magic will lock horns in an NBA regular-season game at the Amway Center on Tuesday. Both teams have only met once this season and on that occasion, the Dubs were successful in grabbing a 126-95 win.

The Warriors head into the game on Tuesday after a defeat to their Western Conference rivals, the San Antonio Spurs. Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson scored 28 and 24 points respectively, but their efforts proved to fall short. The Dubs weren't too happy with the decisions delivered by the referees and amidst the protest on one of the decisions, Draymond Green was ejected from the game. In his absence, the team faltered in the fourth quarter and suffered a 110-108 loss on the night.

The Orlando Magic, on the other hand, got to a win against the OKC Thunder in their game at home. Wendell Carter Jr. was impressive from the tip-off as he scored 30 points on 80% shooting from the field and also grabbed 16 rebounds to lead the team from the front. Both teams were neck and neck, but the Magic edged past the Thunder in the final quarter to grab a 90-85 win.

Golden State Warriors Injury Report

The Warriors have reported five players as part of the injury report. Steph Curry, Andre Iguodala and James Wiseman have been ruled out for a while. Andrew Wiggins has been listed as probable, while Moses Moody's status is questionable against the Magic.

Curry has stated that he will be back in time for the playoffs. Wiseman suffered another knock in his knee after a few appearances in the G-League and his return to the Warriors seems to be a big question this season.
