The Golden State Warriors will be without their sixth man Andre Iguodala tonight against the Indiana Pacers, but will get forward Kevon Looney in the rotation after missing Tuesday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to Mark Medina of the San Jose Mercury News.
Swingman Nick Young missed shootaround with an illness and is questionable for tonight.
The Warriors will try to get through this last stretch of the season with the least amount of bodies on the shelf, as head coach Steve Kerr manages rest for his older players and stars, hopeful to hit the postseason with a healthy bunch.
Tonight’s matchup against the Pacers marks the second of four games on the road to finish out this 2017-18 season and the first of four remaining for the 57-21 Warriors team, which is still in play for yet another 60-win season, despite a myriad of injuries.
Having locked the No. 2 seed in the Western Conference, Kerr and company will focus on throwing in different lineups to get everyone playing time and get some experience with certain combinations.
After surviving a horrid 7-7 month of March, Golden State has won the last three games, including a bar-measuring game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, which could give this hampered team some confidence before entering the postseason.
