Kevin Durant: Out Friday with sore ribs

Durant suffered the injury in a game against the Timberwolves last Sunday. Kevin Durant led the team with 26 points and six assists, Nick Young was inserted into the starting lineup and finished with 18 points while Omri Casspi chipped in with 15 points off the bench. Thompson has a fractured right thumb that will sideline him until March 22. Both are scheduled to be reevaluated in the upcoming week. The Warriors fell to the Kings 98-93 in Kevin Durant's first game out.

With Durant out Friday, Draymond Green will be Golden State's only All-Star available against the Kings.

Golden State's patented "Death Lineup" - which has been used during some of the team's marquee NBA Finals moments - features Green at the center position, with Iguodala alongside Golden State's four All-Stars.

"It's just a side note as we grow and build", Sacramento's De'Aaron Fox said. It was a little sore the next couple of games, but not something I would worry about.

The Warriors are suffering from a serious case of Murphy's Law with only 12 games left in the season. Curry is scheduled to have his ankle re-evaluated next week. Green became the eighth player in franchise history with 500 or more blocked shots.

Right now, health is the most important thing for the Warriors, because even though they're historically great on offense they'll, need all three of their currently shelved superstars to win another title. "Hopefully it gets better the next week or so and we'll see what happens".

The Warriors have seven games on their schedule before they face the Suns at home on April 1.
