    Stephen Curry missed one game earlier this season.

    The Warriors other All-Star, Klay Thompson, has also missed only one game.

    Both – and Andrew Bogut and Andre Iguodala – are getting a break against the Nuggets tonight.

    Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle:

    Bogut, Iguodala, Curry and Thompson will rest tonight.

    — Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) March 13, 2015

    Golden State hasn’t had consecutive days off since the All-Star break and won’t have that until March 25 and 26. This is the first game of a back-to-back, and if he’s going to rest them, Kerr might have reason to prefer using his top players tomorrow against the Knicks.

    The Warriors are seven games ahead of the pack in the Western Conference, and whether or not they beat Denver tonight, they’ll likely get the No. 1 seed.

    Then again, with the Thunder lurking for the No. 8 seed, maybe Golden State is trying to let someone else take the top seed.

    What can they do? If they ban sitting player out for "rest," teams will just sit them out for some alleged injury (and every player has at least some minor injuries by the middle of the season).

    These are not high-profile games, the league won't care. It only ever mattered for what was a marquee matchup, Spurs vs bron.

    The nba won't lose much viewers from a Ws vs nuggets game nor a grizz vs wiz game. They will rather bank on the Ws keep being healthy and entertaining throughout the playoffs.

    Didn't pay too much attention when Spurs was fined but it seem to be done out of spite, and other teams have better relationship with the league so they're not close to having any trouble with this I think.

    Thats what they used to do when it was an injury list instead of an inactive list.
