The Golden State Warriors will face the Atlanta Hawks tonight at Oracle Arena missing a couple more key players.

After being listed as questionable all day, Warriors guards Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala will be sitting tonight's game out along with Festus Ezeli.

Curry has probably been on everyone's mind after tweaking his ankle and appearing a bit hobbled when he returned to the game despite the ridiculousness that he pulled off. Although Curry said after that game on Saturday that the injury wasn't that bad, it's good to see the Warriors getting him some rest — I think most of us agree that privileging rest over wins is the right thing to do right now.

Rusty Simmons of the S.F. Chronicle has more about how Warriors coach Steve Kerr might alter his rotation without Curry and Iguodala in the lineup.

If Curry can’t play, the Warriors would likely start backup point guard Shaun Livingston. Reserve guards Leandro Barbosa and Ian Clark could get point-guard minutes, and the offense could see possessions run through center Andrew Bogut and power forward Draymond Green.

Ultimately, the Warriors haven't lost at home yet so let's hope they can continue that streak tonight.
