Golden State Warriors PG Stephen Curry is being listed as out for Friday’s game vs. the Toronto Raptors due to a tailbone injury. Curry sustained the injury a few weeks back against the Houston Rockets. He was able to return last week against the Chicago Bulls and played in two games before being ruled out again. The Dubs play again on Easter Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks, so this could just be a day to rest.
Draymond Green, Kevon Looney Eric Paschall and Jordan Poole are all expected to play vs. the Raps. Poole is listed as probable. Paschall was held out last game against the Miami Heat. Green is dealing with a finger injury while Poole has an ankle injury. The Dubs have been struggling with losses in five of six games.
With Curry sidelined, Poole ($6,100) should end up back in the starting lineup at guard. He’s probable, so make sure that he’s playing. If Poole is fine, he’ll be a strong GPP play given the price. Andrew Wiggins ($7,500) falls under the GPP play umbrella. It’s difficult to trust James Wiseman ($5,400) given the minutes he gets from coach Steve Kerr. We also have to consider the Dubs will have basically all their front court bodies.
The Dubs had been getting most of the action at +2 on DraftKings Sportsbook prior to the Curry news. We should see the Raptors favored by a few more points. This could be a situation where we can get the Dubs at an even better number while having enough to get past Toronto. The Raptors have lost four in a row and Kyle Lowry remains out. The under was already getting a lot of play at 225.5 and that number should only go down.
