Steph, Klay, Dray to sit vs. Pelicans; Loon, Wiggs questionable originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Warriors accomplished something on Sunday night that they hadn’t done all season: Win their first road game.

It came at the expense of the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center, and now they must try to win their second road game against the New Orleans Pelicans on Monday without the heart of their core.

Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Andre Iguodala were all ruled out of Monday’s game at Smoothie King Center.

Klay Thompson, who just erupted for a season-high 41 points on Sunday vs. the Rockets, also will sit out. Warriors coach Steve Kerr previously has said that Thompson will miss the second game of a back-to-back.

On top of that gut punch, Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney, who has played in 128 consecutive regular-season games going into Monday’s game, are questionable.

For the Pelicans, former No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson, who has missed the last three games with a right foot contusion, is listed as probable.

Additionally, Kira Lewis Jr. (G League assignment), E.J. Liddell (ACL injury recovery) and Dereon Seabron (G League) were ruled out for the Pelicans. Trey Murphy III is questionable.

The last time these two teams faced each other on Nov. 4, Curry, Thompson, Green, Iguodala and Wiggins didn’t play in the Warriors’ 114-105 loss.

Although their efforts fell short, an undermanned Warriors squad saw players like Jordan Poole, Jonathan Kuminga, Anthony Lamb, Moses Moody and Ty Jerome finish with double figures.

Golden State will need players to step up again on Monday to avoid falling to a 1-9 away record on the season.

MLB power rankings: Defending World Series champion Astros open season ranked No. 1

The Houston Astros have a tall task ahead of them. No team has won back-to-back World Series titles since the New York Yankees in 1998-2000. Then again, no American League team has reached the League Championship Series six consecutive years like the Astros, either. So, not surprisingly, the Astros open the 2023 major league season […]
