Warriors to Return Home vs Lakers After Two-Game Losing Streak

OAKLAND, CA - DECEMBER 22: Kevin Durant /

The Warriors are coming off of a rough two-game road trip without Steph Curry, and they’ll be looking to get back on track on Wednesday night in Oracle Arena.

The Warriors were in a tough spot in Portland on Friday and lost on the second night of a back-to-back, and they looked worn out in the fourth quarter of Sunday afternoon’s loss in Minnesota. Both of those games did not involve Steph Curry as they left him at home to recover from his most recent ankle injury.

Curry will be on the sidelines again for Wednesday night’s game, but he’s not the only player on Golden State’s lengthy injury report.

Draymond Green will be out of the lineup due to right shoulder soreness.

Andre Iguodala is probable to return fom a wrist injury that has kept him out for the past three games.

David West has missed the past four games with a cyst on his right arm that may have become infected. This is a pretty mysterious injury, and no one really knows what his status is moving forward. He will be out for Wednesday night’s game as well.

Klay Thompson is also banged up with a sore hip and a sprained thumb, and he is currently listed as questionable.

The only good news on Golden State’s injury report is that Jordan Bell is probable to return from his most recent ankle injury.

While the Warriors have plenty of excuses for their recent struggles, they need to start winning again if they have any hope of catching Houston for the number one seed. Beginning this two-game home stand with a win over the Lakers would go a long way in returning to their post-All-Star break success.
