Sacramento Kings vs. Golden State Warriors: Game 77 injury report

SACRAMENTO, CA - FEBRUARY 2: Klay Thompson /

Sacramento Kings host the Golden State Warriors on March 31. Today, we view and analyze the injury report for both squads heading into that game.

The Sacramento Kings are winding down their regular season.  They host the Golden State Warriors on the final day of March before heading out on a four-game road trip.  The Kings return to Sacramento to close the season against the Rockets.  Yes, only six more games remain in this campaign.

Let us not look too far ahead, though.  The defending NBA champs roll into Sacramento on Saturday, and both teams have an extensive injury report heading into that game.  Below is a look at the injuries followed by some analysis.

Sacramento Kings

The Kings failed to release an official report, but ESPN lists both Garrett Temple and Iman Shumpert as out for this game.  Temple is dealing with an ankle injury, and Shumpert is bothered by foot issues.

I think Zach Randolph will also be out which you can read more about here.

Golden State Warriors

Things have been interesting for Golden State with their mounting injuries, but they are slowly getting healthy.  Kevin Durant returned on Thursday and should play against Sacramento.  Below is the Warriors injury report courtesy of Logan Murdock of the Mercury News.

The likely return of Klay Thompson is a boost for the Dubs, but it could end the amazing displays being put on by Quinn Cook.  Cook has looked phenomenal lately, and it will be interesting to see how his role changes with Thompson back in the fold.
