The Golden State Warriors are set to face off against the Denver Nuggets at the Pepsi Center. Both teams have struggled so far this season, with the 2018 Champions at the 7th position and last seasons Conference Finalists at the 9th spot on the Western Conference standings.
After starting the 2020-21 campaign on a dissapointing note, both the teams have started to find their feet as they spend more and more time on the court. The Warriors particularly have looked more resilient with each passing game and currently have a record of 6-5.
Given the talent that both teams have, this is bound to be a very tantalizing matchup that NBA fans shouldn't miss out on.
Team News - Golden State Warriors
Unlike a few teams in the NBA, Golden State Warriors should have a roster of 15 players available to them for tonight's encounter, apart from ofcouse Klay Thompson, who is ruled out for the season.
Fortunately for the franchise, there seem to be no new injury concerns or no further addition to the list of players under the health and safety protocols. And so, Steve Kerr will be expected to have his full roster of players to pick from against the Denver Nuggets.
Injured: Klay Thompson, Alen Smailagic, Marquese Chriss
Team News - Denver Nuggets
Much like the Golden State Warriors, the Denver Nuggets also come into this match with no new injury concerns of their own. However, Garry Harris is one player who could be absent from this match despite being healthy.
Gary Harris is an integral part of the team, to say the least, but could be sidelined due to what have been described as personal reasons. With the 26-year-old absent, the Denver Nuggets will suffer a major dent on both ends of the floor and hence could face some serious problems against the Stephen Curry led Golden State Warriors.
Michael Porter Jr. is also expected to be absent due to health and safety protocols.
Doubtful: Gary Harris
Unavailable: Michael Porter Jr.
