Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry and forward Kevin Durant were ruled out for Monday's game against the Sacramento Kings, the team announced.

The Sacramento Kings host the Golden State Warriors in the first of a back-to-back set tonight.

A two-time NBA MVP, Curry is nursing a bruised right hand while Durant will miss his third straight game with a sprained left ankle. Durant has already missed two of the last three games while Curry, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala are all questionable to feature against the Kings due to assorted ailments.

Head coach Steve Kerr has said, in retrospect, the Warriors probably shouldn't have let Durant play against his former team.


While Curry's injury has merely been cited as wear and tear by the Warriors, Durant injured his ankle during he team's win over the Philadelphia 76ers back on November 18.

It was Sunday night at the Barclays he got the chance to see his favorite team and also meet some of the players however his happiness turnt to disappointment after a great game when waiting to see Curry after the game for a simple picture and autograph with his idol, his absolute favorite, didn't go as planned. But after the club began the season with a 1-6 record, he was repositioned to the bench, and has responded well, scoring in double figures seven times. "I just try to be myself and stick with what I do best, and that's move without the ball, make the right play, take the shot when it's there and trust your teammates".

Buddy Hield led a late Kings rally with 16 fourth-quarter points, but his tough jumper over one of the league's top defenders, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, was off the mark at the horn, leaving Sacramento two points short.
