Golden State Warriors- Injury updates and lineup prediction

The Golden State Warriors had a rather disappointing loss at the hands of the Washington Wizards, who beat them 118-114. After an impeccable 11 game streak where he scored more than 30 points, talisman Steph Curry misfired, scoring only 18 points knocking down only 2 threes out of the attempted 14.

The Warriors have some major injury concerns. Klay Thompson is out for the entire year with an Achilles injury, James Wiseman finds himself on the shelf with a torn meniscus.

Backup center Eric Paschall is out with a hip injury, Juan Toscano-Anderson is sidelined with a concussion while Damion Lee and Kent Bazemore are out in compliance with the league’s medical protocols.

The Warriors face the Nuggets team who are in fine form. If Steph can come back to form, they can pull off a win.
