When the Golden State Warriors head inland to face the Sacramento Kings on Friday, they will, once again, be limited by injuries. In addition to the obvious (DeMarcus Cousins), the Warriors will be without Shaun Livingston, and possible Andre Iguodala, who is listed as questionable.
Shaun Livingston is out tomorrow. Andre Iguodala is questionable for tomorrow. Steve Kerr said he’s not concerned with either players’ injuries— Mark Medina (@MarkG_Medina) December 13, 2018
Neither player practiced on Thursday, a day after a blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors. Iguodala did not play in that game, though Livingston logged 15 minutes. And while Iguodala didn’t practice, he did get some shots in on the court after practice.

Both veterans have been hampered by injuries all year. Iguodala was slowed during training camp, and has missed four games this season. Livingston has missed nine games already, though he’s played in every contest over the last month.
Thankfully, coach Steve Kerr said the team is not worried about either player. There are, of course, many reasons for the team to be extra cautious with their players, so keeping them out when dinged up isn’t surprising at all.
