Steve Kerr’s team will be heavily undermanned heading into the game against the Nuggets. Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins and Gary Payton II will not suit up for the Golden State Warriors. Kerr isn’t happy with the scheduled makeup game and will not allow his best players to take to the court.
The sixth-placed Denver Nuggets are slowly creeping their way into the top 4 of the Western Conference standings. They are only 2.5 games behind the fourth-seeded Utah Jazz. Denver is also only a game behind the Dallas Mavericks in the standings.
Nikola Jokic displayed his out-of-this-world brilliance yet again in the Denver Nuggets’ win over the New Orleans Pelicans. The Serbian superstar dropped 30 of his 46 points in the fourth quarter and overtime to tow the Nuggets to the win. They can only hope to have enough energy against the Warriors in the second game of a back-to-back.

Golden State Warriors Preview
Role players will undoubtedly get heavy minutes in this game for the Golden State Warriors.
Key Player – Jordan Poole
Almost by default, Jordan Poole will be the Golden State Warriors’ key player. The 22-year-old combo guard has been a pleasant surprise for the Warriors while waiting for the return of Klay Thompson. Despite coming off the bench upon Thompson’s arrival, he has been quite steady until Draymond Green’s injury.

Poole has been tasked with orchestrating the plays while Steph Curry sits, which is part of the reason why his scoring has dipped. From 17.3 points on 44.6% shooting with Draymond Green, his averages have dropped to 15.1 with 43.7% efficiency without the Warriors’ point guard.
Jordan Poole will have his hands full trying to lead the undermanned Golden State Warriors to a win over the Nuggets.
