No Steph and no Ja, but this game should have plenty of action.

The Golden State Warriors are limping towards the playoffs after losing two straight road games to Eastern Conference opponents. They don’t have Stephen Curry or James Wiseman, but they should get an emotional lift from the return of Andre Iguodala. The 2015 NBA Finals MVP has only played in 26 of Golden State’s 75 games so far with nagging injuries.

But his return is timely as the Dubs face off against the red-hot Memphis Grizzlies, the team they traded Iguodala to back in 2019. He never played a game for them, patiently waiting for an eventual trade to the Miami Heat. Apparently the young Grizz were not particularly pleased with that.

Now the Grizzlies are in the #2 spot in the Western Conference playoff bracket while the Warriors cling to the #3 seed. These two teams are expected to be tough outs once the postseason hits, and both are missing their star guards.

The Dubs are +400 on the moneyline per DraftKings.
