The Warriors will be down two key rotational players, but Andre Iguodala will play.

Klay Thompson will not play tonight when the Golden State Warriors host the Boston Celtics. The five-time All-Star will miss his second consecutive game due to knee soreness, and will be joined on the sideline by Kevon Looney, also missing his second straight game.

Andre Iguodala, who was listed as questionable on Monday, will play.

Thompson and Looney have been two of the most durable Warriors this season. This will be just the third game all year that the sharpshooter has missed, and only the second absence for Looney.

With those two out, the Warriors bench will be called upon to provide some depth, which is an area where they’ve struggled all year. Alfonzo McKinnie will likely start in Thompson’s place, as he did on Saturday, and we may see big minutes from Damion Lee, who had a stellar showing over the weekend. And Jordan Bell will surely be asked to provide quality minutes behind DeMarcus Cousins.

The Warriors and Celtics tip off at 7:30 p.m. PT on TNT and NBC Sports Bay Area.
