With a rest day coming on Friday, Curry, Thompson, Green and Wiggins will get the entire weekend off before hosting the Sacramento Kings at Chase Center on Monday.
Without four of their stars, Golden State’s young core will need to rally to give the Warriors a chance to salvage a win on the road before returning to the Bay Area.
Jordan Poole will likely play a featured role on Friday, along with players like Moses Moody, Jonathan Kuminga, James Wiseman, JaMychal Green and Ty Jerome. Rookies Patrick Baldwin Jr. and Ryan Rollins could also get minutes against the Pelicans on Friday.
