After dropping a gut-wrenching loss to the Washington Wizards on Friday, the Golden State Warriors will be without a starter in the second leg of a back-to-back on Saturday against the Houston Rockets.

During the second quarter, Kelly Oubre Jr. drove through the lane to finish an explosive attempt against his former team. Following the acrobatic bucket, Oubre Jr. came crashing down to the floor in a brutal fall.
