After seeing their five-game winning streak come to a close on Christmas day, the Golden State Warriors will try and start a new one tonight when they host the Miami Heat.

Neither team appears to be at full strength, so we’ll see which team can overcome that hurdle more gracefully.

Here’s the full injury report.

Warriors

Out — Draymond Green (league suspension)

Green’s indefinite suspension continues, and we should probably expect that to be the case for at least a few more weeks. Take all the time you need, Dray.

Out — Gary Payton II (right calf strain)

It’s been a little while since we’ve gotten an update on Payton. Hopefully he’s back soon, as the Dubs’ defense would definitely benefit from having him back on the court.

Heat

Out — Dru Smith (3rd degree right ACL sprain)

Smith is still trying to find a role in the league, but unfortunately will have to wait a while to do so, as he suffered a season-ending injury early in the year.

Doubtful — Caleb Martin (right ankle sprain)

Martin, whose twin brother Cody plays for the Charlotte Hornets, suffered a mild ankle sprain during Miami’s Christmas day win.

Doubtful — Josh Richardson (lower back discomfort)

Backs remain nothing to mess with! Heal up, Josh.

Questionable — Jimmy Butler (left calf strain)

Miami could be without the face of their franchise. The six-time All-Star and five-time All-NBA selection, who is playing his usual brand of basketball, hasn’t played since December 18.

Questionable — Kyle Lowry (soreness)

Ahh, the generic soreness that takes us all down as we get older.

Questionable — Duncan Robinson (left ankle sprain)

Robinson is having the best season of his career, scoring 15.1 points per game and shooting a blistering 44.9% from three-point range. He could be a difference maker if he’s able to play.

Enjoy the action, Dub Nation!
