On Tuesday, the Warriors will host either the Rockets or Clippers in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals (depending on who wins Game 7 this afternoon), and they’ll be without backup power forward Marreese Speights, according to head coach Steve Kerr:
No official Marreese Speights (right calf) update from the Warriors, but Steve Kerr said the reserve forward won’t play Tuesday.

Speights suffered the calf injury in Game 3 of the Warriors’ second-round series against the Grizzlies, which ended on Friday. He’ll be out for at least the start of the Conference Finals, which will mean more playing time for David Lee, who has seen his role increase in the second half of the Memphis series.
