Guard Grayson Allen is listed as out of Tuesday’s game against the Warriors, while Andre Iguodala’s return from injury is not yet known as he remains to join the team yet.
As for the Warriors, the injury list has just kept mounting- starting from Klay Thompson in the preseason. And Stephen Curry‘s injury after a few games into the season completely crippled them. While there is still time for both the All-stars to return, the Warriors will be expecting Draymond Green to be fit on Tuesday. D’Angelo Russell is listed as day to day and is doubtful. The other players who are completely listed out include Damion Lee, Kevon Looney, Amen Smailagic and Jacob Evans.
Going by the current Warriors form and their huge injury list, it might be very difficult for them to go past Gizzlies. Warriors’s hopes will ride on the return of Green, and they will also want the rookie Paschall to come good once again
