The Warriors looked toothless without Steph Curry against the 76ers. Given the talent Philly have, they had a comfortable 108-98 victory.

Despite the loss, the Warriors saw their new signing, Kelly Oubre Jr, put up a decent performance scoring 24 points.

For the next game against the Cavs, the Warriors will be missing some key players due to injuries. Apart from the long injuries to Klay Thompson and Marquese Chriss, the Warriors will also miss their talisman Steph Curry, who suffered a tailbone fracture. Forward Draymond Green is questionable as he recovers from an ankle injury.

The Warriors face a Kings team who are in some great form. If both Wiggins and Kelly Oubre Jr. are able to step up, they can pull off a win against Sacramento.

Sacramento Kings injury updates and predicted lineup

Sacramento recently beat the Hawks 110-108 for their 19th victory of the season. The Kings are finally showing some signs of life with fours wins in the last five games.

These victories have come against top teams like the Celtics and the in-form Hawks, giving us a glimpse of how good this team can be.

The Kings have some injury concerns. Their starting forward Marvin Bagley III is out with a hand injury, while forward Jabari Parker is out with the NBA’s health and safety protocols. Guard Jahmi’us Ramsey is out with a hamstring injury.

They will hope that the team can continue this amazing run of form against the Warriors who are missing some key players.
