The Warriors knew they would not have Stephen Curry at their disposal on Friday night as they take on the Los Angeles Lakers and now they will be without big man Andris Biedrins to slow down Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. This is a substantial blow to Golden State and a win will be very tough to come by at Staples Center with the team short-handed.

In a bit of good news, the Lakers will be without Josh McRoberts off the bench, although he is not too much of a threat to burn the Warriors. Kobe Bryant continues to battle a severe injury to his wrist and is reportedly receiving injections to numb the area before every game.
