Sacramento completed a 1-2 homestand by blowing an 18-point lead in a 97-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night.

Curry apparently suffered a right-hand contusion in Saturday's win over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Golden State announced before the game Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry will not play against Sacramento, however Draymond Green will be available to play.

This will represent the fourth time in five games that Durant has sat out. Why else would the kid already be wearing a Curry jersey but wanting Steph to sign a completely different one?

Curry is averaging a team-leading 26.0 points, 6.3 assists and 5.2 rebounds while Durant, the 2017 NBA Finals MVP, has averaged 24.7 points, 6.8 rebounds and 4.7 assists this season.

Kerr doesn't want to take any chances with his stars.

Over the past few days, a video has been circulating on the internet showing two parents surprising their young son with tickets to a Golden State Warriors as a gift for his birthday. They still have some contributors capable of stepping up if needed, but if Sacramento are serious about causing a stunning upset, they must get the better of the Warriors' reserves.

The game matches not only teams at the opposite ends of the Pacific Division standings, but also the first-place Warriors having won six in a row at home while the last-place Kings have dropped nine in succession on the road. However, he's obviously not capable of taking opponents off the dribble, which means he's still capable of being limited.
