Warriors vs. Pistons injury report: Jonathan Kuminga probable

For better or for worse, the Golden State Warriors don’t have much time to dwell on Thursday night’s debilitating and catastrophic loss against the defending-champion Denver Nuggets. They’re right back in action tonight, and instead of hosting arguably the best team in the league, they’re hosting inarguably the worst: the Detroit Pistons, less than a week removed from ending their 28-game losing streak, the worst single-season mark in NBA history.

So if you like your glass half full, the Dubs have the easiest possible game in front of them. And if you like your glass half empty, they’re presented with a crystal clear opportunity to reach a new rock bottom.

Lovely!

Anyway, with tension and frustration and disaster swirling, the Warriors will take the court. Here’s the full injury report.

Warriors

Out — Draymond Green (league suspension)

We still don’t know when Green will return, but we do have a report that he’s preparing to return to the team’s facilities, start practicing again, and prepare to make a return to the court. That’s exciting!

Out — Gary Payton II (left hamstring strain)

Payton will be out several weeks after a recent injury, his third of the season. Hopefully he’s fully healthy by the postseason. Hopefully the Warriors are in the postseason.

Probable — Jonathan Kuminga (left toe soreness)

Kuminga is on the injury report hours after a report that he has lost faith in Steve Kerr. Do with that information what you will.

Pistons

Out — Isaiah Stewart (right great toe sprain)

This might be the first time I’ve heard it referred to as a “great” toe. It’s kinda weird. Anyway, Beef Stew will miss his fifth consecutive game, which means more playing time for former Warrior James Wiseman!

Out — Monté Morris (right quadriceps strain)

Morris has yet to play a game this season due to injury. And it wouldn’t be that surprising if he gets traded before he even suits up for Detroit.

Questionable — Alec Burks (right hamstring soreness)

Wiseman isn’t the only former Warrior on the Pistons — they also have Burks, added to be a steady veteran to help this young team. He’s having a solid season, and could also be a veteran shipped elsewhere at the deadline.

Enjoy the game, Dub Nation!
