The Warriors will be without a couple of key players in Monday night's preseason game against the Lakers.

D'Angelo Russell and Draymond Green will rest, coach Steve Kerr told reporters in Los Angeles.

Steph Curry is going to play, but he will get the night off when the Dubs face the Lakers again Wednesday night.

Los Angeles, meanwhile, also will be shorthanded for the exhibition contest:

Kevon Looney -- who tweaked his hamstring 12 days ago and missed the first two preseason games -- is expected to be out again.

Willie Cauley-Stein remains sidelined with a left foot strain, and it's unclear if Alec Burks (sprained ankle) will make his preseason debut.

The Warriors and Lakers will wrap up the preseason on Friday night at Chase Center.
