After a tight win over the Boston Celtics on Friday, the Golden State Warriors will travel North to end a four-game road swing with a tilt against the Toronto Raptors on the second leg of a back-to-back.

To close their road trip, the Warriors will boast a unique rotation against the Raptors. Prior to the matchup, the Warriors have ruled several key players out, including Steph Curry, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins.

Heading into Saturday’s contest, the Warriors’ extensive injury report looks like this:

  • Steph Curry – Out – Rest

  • Draymond Green – Out – Right Hip Tightness

  • Andre Iguodala – Out – Right Knee Injury Management

  • Jordan Poole – Out – Health and Safety Protocols

  • Otto Porter Jr. – Out – Left Foot Injury Management

  • Andrew Wiggins – Out – Left Knee Soreness

With six players ruled out, including four starters, here is a look at the players that Steve Kerr will have to pick from on Saturday against the Raptors:

  • Guards: Damion Lee, Gary Payton II, Chris Chiozza (two-way contract), Moses Moody (rookie), Jeff Dowtin Jr. (two-way contract)

  • Forwards: Jonathan Kuminga (rookie), Juan Toscano-Anderson, Nemanja Bjelica

While Kevon Looney is a lock to start at center, the rest of Golden State’s lineup could be a mystery until tipoff. Moses Moody drew the start yesterday against the Boston Celtics in place of Jordan Poole. Juan Toscano-Anderson and Gary Payton II have each started one game this season.

Without their three leading scorers, the Warriors will need to find a way to score on Saturday in Toronto. Damion Lee will be a candidate to lead Golden State’s offense, averaging 7.8 points on 41.4% shooting from the field. Lee has scored in double-figures in nine games this season, including one 20 point performance.

Outside of starters, the Warriors will have three players off the bench against the Raptors.

After Saturday’s contest, the Warriors will get Sunday off before heading back to the Bay Area for a game against the Sacramento Kings on Monday at Chase Center.
