Stephen Curry could be rested next two Warriors games

There were reports that after the Warriors knocked off the Kings Monday that Stephen Curry was limping in the locker room. He didn’t show it on the court dropping a triple-double, but it was noticed after the game.

Which may mean some rest is coming for Curry, according to interim coach Luke Walton. Via Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group.

Officially, Curry as listed as questionable for Wednesday. The Warriors error on the side of caution with players and health, so don’t be shocked if Curry is out against the Dallas Mavericks Wednesday and the Houston Rockets Thursday. I’d be surprised if he’s not rested for at least half of the back-to-back.

This is why the Warriors chasing 72 wins is still very early in the conversation — the Warriors’ 29-1 record puts it on the table, but as the season moves along the Warriors will make the health of their players the highest priority. Curry will get rested, as will Draymond Green, Klay Thompson and the rest of them. The Warriors will not care if that costs them a few wins.

If Curry sits out, expect to see a lot more Shaun Livingston. Leandro Barbosa did not make the trip with the team due to injury.
