The Brooklyn Nets had a tough time with Nikola Jokic and the defending champs — or as we’d say in the past: they battled. Next up are the struggling Warriors, who will be without Draymond Green.
WHEN: 8:30 PM ET
WHERE: YES Network; WFAN-FM (Radio)
Injuries: No Ben Simmons, Lonnie Walker IV or Dennis Smith Jr. Dorian Finney-Smith is expected to play.
Gary Payton II is out with a right calf strain. Draymond Green is... yeah, we have to talk about Draymond Green.
The Game: Steve Kerr has to make some more adjustments. One of them was to put Andrew Wiggins on the bench. It’s been a terrible season for Wiggins thus far as his shot just hasn’t been there. He didn’t help matters by reportedly coming in to training camp out of shape. With Wiggins on the bench, Jonathan Kuminga is in the starting five. Kuminga gives this team the shot of athleticism it so desperately needs. The Warriors are trying to figure out a possible future, and they’re going to need him feeling comfortable and confident.
