Unfortunately, it's possible that neither team will be at full strength.
While the Warriors will likely be without reserve guard Shaun Livingston, both Chris Paul and J.J. Redick have been listed as "doubtful for the Clippers.
Warriors interim head Luke Walton said Shaun Livingston (hip) is doubtful, but Klay Thompson (back) is playing tonight vs. the Clippers.— Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) November 19, 2015
The Clippers' latest injury report still lists Chris Paul (groin) and J.J. Redick (back) as doubtful, but Warriors are prepped to face both.— Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) November 19, 2015
The semantics of injury reporting - one outlet says CP, JJ "not likely" to play. Doc said neither were "probable" and said it was "50-50."— Dan Woike (@DanWoikeSports) November 18, 2015
Chris Paul and JJ Redick both out tonight against the Warriors? pic.twitter.com/lMOw3RaFfM— SneakerMob.com (@SneakerMob) November 19, 2015
Bram, Ivan and I discussed the implications of the Clippers injuries on this game during our podcast the other day — let's just say that I'm not all that confident that the Clippers can win. But honestly, this rivalry has become so entertaining that I wish that both teams were at full strength.
Yet as things stand now, the Warriors have a pretty good chance of earning a win, the 13th straight to begin the season. If you want to celebrate that early-season success, be sure to check out our championship t-shirt available at BreakingT.com.
