BOSTON -- The Golden State Warriors are resting Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and several other players in advance of Saturday's game against the Toronto Raptors.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr said after Friday's 111-107 win over the Boston Celtics that he would discuss the possibility with GM Bob Myers of resting some veterans as the Warriors enter into the second night of a back-to-back at the end of a five game East Coast swing.
The decision was made to rest stars Curry (rest) and Green (right hip tightness) as well as Andre Iguodala (right knee injury management) and Otto Porter Jr. (left foot injury management). Guard Jordan Poole remains out due to health and safety protocols. This marks the second game that both Curry and Green will miss this season after both sat out a Nov. 19 win over the Detroit Pistons.
"It felt like a really good win," Kerr said after Friday's win over the Celtics. "Just knowing we got to play [Saturday] and on a five game trip, guaranteeing us at least three wins, it makes this a great trip and now [Saturday] is a little more of a free swing and we'll see what happens."
