Tuesday’s second NBA In-Season Tournament matchup between the Warriors and the Minnesota Timberwolves may include the absence of star point guard Steph Curry.
For the second of two back-to-back games against Anthony Edwards and company at Chase Center during the regular season, the nine-time NBA All-Star is listed as questionable due to right knee pain. Golden State lost the previous encounter by a score of 116-110 on Sunday.
Curry’s probable absence might be a problem for the Warriors as they attempt to win their way out of a three-game losing run. It should come as no surprise that in Golden State’s 11 games thus far, the 35-year-old has been the team’s primary offensive weapon. This was demonstrated on Sunday when he outscored the other Warriors starters 38-33.
In the event that Curry misses Tuesday’s game, Dub Nation can anticipate seeing more of Gary Payton II and youngster Brandin Podziemski; the four-time champion will probably start in Curry’s place.
