SAN FRANCISCO -- The Warriors have owned the Charlotte Hornets lately, winning 11 of the last 14 meetings and five of the last seven at home.
However, with Stephen Curry out until at least the All-Star break, the Hornets are eager to change the trend Saturday at Chase Center.
Pregame coverage on NBC Sports Bay Area begins at 4:30 p.m., with tipoff scheduled for 5:40.
The Warriors' injuries are piling up, as Draymond Green won't play Saturday after he tore a ligament in his left index finger during Friday's loss to the San Antonio Spurs. D'Angelo Russell won't play, either, as he will sit with a right ankle sprain.
The Hornets will love their chances against the Warriors' short-handed lineup on the second night of a back-to-back.
