The Golden State Warriors will be without Andre Iguodala and Shaun Livingston tonight in their game against the Memphis Grizzlies, according to Warriors PR.
While Livingston remains out due to the foot issue that has kept him out the last few games, Iguodala is taking the familiar regular season rest day — and how can you really be mad at that when the goal is to make the 2019 NBA Finals?

Warriors coach Steve Kerr was asked about these absences during the pre-game press conference tonight and noted that Quinn Cook could be the one called upon as the next man up against the Grizzlies, as reported on Twitter by LetsGoWarriors.com.

However, none of the Warriors player-games lost this year match what the Grizzlies have had to deal with the last few years, which includes the massive contract of Chandler Parsons. We will also miss out on the opportunity to see old friend Omri Casspi, who the Warriors released late last season in favor of Quinn Cook.
