Prior to the game, the Warriors have ruled out Andrew Wiggins due to right abductor tightness. Wiggins is coming off his season-high performance with 36 points against the Houston Rockets on Saturday night. Wiggins matched his career-high with eight made triples to lead the Warriors to their 10th consecutive win at home.
