The Golden State Warriors and Oklahoma City Thunder faced off in an absolute classic on Saturday night. With records breaking shots left and right, the Warriors needed every single three-pointer from an injured Stephen Curry for that victory. On a play in which Russell Westbrook stepped on and landed on Curry’s ankle, fans were gasping. Curry left the court and went to the locker rooms to get it examined. He was re-taped and thrown back into the game in the second quarter.
Tonight, the Warriors host the Atlanta Hawks at the Oracle Arena. The starting lineup and rotation for tonight’s game may look a little different. According to Marc Stein of ESPN, Steph and Andre Iguodala both missed the morning shootaround as both players are questionable for the game.
Neither Steph Curry (ankle) nor Andre Iguodala (hamstring) participated in shootaround this AM and both are questionable tonight vs. Hawks

Technically, both players are still game-time decisions and may play. With the Houston Rockets loss on Saturday, the Warriors have already clinched a playoff spot which may make coaching and management more inclined to resting their players. If both players are out, look to see Shaun Livingston with heavy minutes tonight.
