INJURY TO WATCH

Golden State shooting guard Klay Thompson (thumb) is probable to play tonight. Small forward Chris Boucher (ankle) is questionable. Small forward Andre Iguodala (knee) is out tonight, while small forward Omri Casspi (ankle) is out indefinitely. Point guard Steph Curry (ankle) is out until late April. For Sacramento, power forward Zach Randolph (illness) and small forward Garrett Temple (ankle) are both questionable. Shooting guard Iman Shumpert (foot) is out indefinitely. Power forward Harry Giles (knees) is out indefinitely.

BETTING STRATEGY

Both teams have lost their last three games, with all the games coming at home. In the Warriors' 116-107 loss to the Bucks last game, power forward Kevin Durant was ejected in his first game back from a rib injury as he picked up a pair of technical fouls in the second quarter. With Durant plus power forward Draymond Green and the returning Thompson all back in the fold tonight, Golden State should be able to do a better job of minimizing the absence of Curry against the lowly Kings. I know I thought the Warriors would get a win against Milwaukee and it didn't happen, but Thompson will spread the floor out even more and this team is too talented to struggle for too long. Go with Golden State here.
