The Golden State Warriors are just one of the many teams throughout the NBA who could possibly have a hospital as one of their sponsors due to the insane number of injuries they've had to go through in a single, 82-game regular season. With the regular season nearing it's end, however, the Warriors could slowly find their health in preparation for the NBA playoffs.
On Tuesday night, the Warriors have a slew of players on their injury report. Kevin Durant (right rib soreness) and Klay Thompson (fractured right thumb) are probable. Andre Iguodala (left knee soreness) and Kevon Looney (flu-like symptoms) are doubtful to play. Stephen Curry (left MCL sprain), Omri Casspi (strained right ankle), and Patrick McCaw (lumbar spine contusion) are all out.

The Warriors opponent on Tuesday night will be the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team fighting to hang on to their playoff spot in the Western Conference. The game in Oklahoma City will be one of Golden State's four remaining road games, which include visits to Indiana, Phoenix, and Utah.
One thing head coach Steve Kerr has repeatedly said is that he will prioritize the team's health over anything else in the final few weeks of the regular season as opposed to getting a rhythm for the playoffs. We'll see what the Warriors can do in their final five games of the year.
