Curry may not play against us has a thigh bruise-questionable
And Lonzo benched in 4th quarter as shooting woes continue and LA needed a win

Good news for us about Currys availability. Especially if Kyrie is playing.

Lonzo is a great talent but this is a teachable moment, if his dad stays out of it. Poor guy is under a bunch of pressure IMO. From himself, Laker fans and his dad. If he listens to Walton I think he will be fine. Luke did him a favor taking him out while he was struggling. He should just forget about gthe game, hit the gym and work on his jumper.  He'll  be back on the floor soon enough.

Where are you seeing the Curry news? He didn't play last night, but I can't find anywhere confirming that he isn't playing against Boston on Thursday.

Would actually be a shame. I'd like to see us against a full strength GS squad to truly measure where we're at.

Curry was listed as 'questionable' against the Magic and it was seemingly for precautionary reasons - do you have any sources stating that he will not play against us?

Also, with our without Lonzo, we just want the Lakers to lose - so not wonderful that they got the win against a bad team. Not a great night for the Cs overall as the Cavs had a miraculous comeback in the 4th to beat the Knicks.

If we had Gordon, sure.  Otherwise both Gordon and Curry out sounds pretty fair to me.

I am betting Curry was just getting a night off to rest and they'll have the whole squad against us Thursday.

this is probably the situation.  can't see GSW passing on an opportunity to try and drill the new upstart team to send a message that they're the best.

He made it up. That information has not been released one way or another. In fact, Kerr said that Curry would've played yesterday had it been a playoff game. So the injury doesn't appear to severe, especially with a few days off until Thursday in a TNT game.

I think Curry rested last night to be ready Thursday.

Regarding Lonzo. To be quite honest I think the Lakers need to send him down to the GLeague. I know that's not a popular decision but there he can play a few games and get his shot together and build his confidence. In the NBA they are going to force him to shoot and the worse it gets, the more his confidence goes down.

I know it will never happen but good luck fixing that jumper on the job.

Curry is probable for Thursday’s game in Boston


He was also a full participant in today's practice.

I think we'll see a constant string of rest days for GSW stars with minor nicks this season. Always with an injury specified to avoid Silver's fines (and probably not national tv games)

I'd rather test ourselves against the best than just win the game.

I heard it reported on WEEI that there is a possibility of Curry missing the game due to a thigh bruise. It was reported right after they made the announcement that Kyrie would be playing tonight with a mask.
