The Warriors will continue to rest players as the season comes to a close.

The Golden State Warriors will face the Detroit Pistons tonight at 5:30 p.m. with only 10 games left in the season.

You right remember that the last 10 games of last season were rough for the Warriors as they dropped six of their final 10. You might also recall that the Warriors won the title again last year. So shall we stick with what works? Let’s rest more!

The Warriors announced today that DeMarcus Cousins and Andre Iguodala will be out for tonight’s game. In fact, Warriors coach Steve Kerr also announced that the team will be resting DeMarcus Cousins for all back-to-backs for the remainder of this regular season, which makes a lot of sense given that he is still coming off an Achilles injury.

For tonight, Cousins sitting out the back end of this back-to-back means that they’ll need a starting center. That center will be recently-acquired Andrew Bogut, according to a tweet from Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.

It turns out that Kevon Looney will be available as a backup to Andrew Bogut despite being listed as questionable earlier in the day, as tweeted by Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area.
