Steph, Draymond, JTA all out for Warriors-Pelicans tonight


The Warriors will be without a trio of key rotational players for the second half of a road back-to-back on Thursday night in New Orleans.

Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Juan Toscano-Anderson all will be unavailable for the contest at Smoothie King Center against the Pelicans.

Curry said he suffered a quad contusion in the Warriors' loss to the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night, and both he and Steve Kerr were not optimistic about Steph suiting up in the Big Easy.

Draymond missed a game back in December due to a hip issue, and with the Western Conference's second-worst team on the schedule for a road back-to-back, this seems like a prime opportunity to allow Green to rest following a tough loss.

Toscano-Anderson played just under 20 minutes in the 99-82 loss in Dallas on Wednesday, scoring nine points and pulling down five rebounds.

The Warriors wrap up their road trip in New Orleans on Thursday, and will host the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday in what potentially could be Klay Thompson's return to the Warriors lineup.

Steph and Draymond certainly will want to be healthy and in uniform for what will be an emotional day in San Francisco if Thompson indeed gets the green light to take the floor.
