the Warriors’ 121-118 overtime loss to Boston Celtics At TD Garden on Thursday night it’s now even more disappointing. After fighting to the last bell, the Warriors will now be without four starters and a handful of players on Friday vs Cleveland Cavaliers.

Golden State’s young roster is already missing its biggest stars at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. Steve CurryAnd Clay ThompsonAnd Draymond Green And Andrew Wiggins are all out. Join them James Wiseman And Andre Iguodala also.

In an apparently similar move, the Warriors called out the rookie Ryan Rollins From Santa Cruz on Friday.

Thompson was expected to miss Friday night’s game as it was the second of a consecutive drive to end a five-game road trip. He still hasn’t played both games in back-to-back matches since returning from two season-ending injuries a year ago, but there’s still hope he can do so later in the season. Playing the heavy minutes Boston had to factor in Curry, Green, and Wiggins taking a seat.

Curry (tight left thigh) played 43 minutes in the Warriors’ loss, scoring 29 points while struggling to find his shot, especially late in the game. Green (right toe soreness) gave the Warriors 37 minutes, as he nearly had a triple-double with 11 points, 13 rebounds and nine assists. Wiggins (left foot soreness) played nearly 40 minutes and scored 20 points while chasing the Celtics star Jason Tatum in defence.

Wiseman will now miss his 10th straight game with a sprained left ankle. He was injured in a three-on-three fight on December 30, the same day the Warriors defeated Portland Trail Blazers at Chase Center. The former No. 2 overall selection has played in 19 of the 45 games the Warriors have played this season.

Iguodala, after playing 18 minutes and throwing a dunk in the Warriors’ victory over San Antonio Spurs At the Alamodome one week ago, he would miss his fourth straight game with right groin soreness.

take a breath. There is some good news.

Jonathan Cuminga And Jamical Green Both are listed as potential and You are expected to play in Cleveland. Coach Steve Kerr said before Thursday’s loss that he’s “optimistic” Cuminga and Green are OK, and the Warriors need their size right now. Truthfully, they need bodies in general.

Kuminga missed eight consecutive games due to a sprain in his right foot that kept him in the walking boot for a short time. The young forward was a plus/minus 15 against the Blazers, the same game he was injured in but played through.

Green has not seen a game since December 18th. The veteran big man has missed 14 straight games. He was initially diagnosed with a non-COVID disease, but then was briefly hospitalized with inflammation of the right lower leg.

The Warriors are 2-2 on their current wild ride, and now face an uphill battle against the 28-18 Cavs.
