NBA: Key trio set for Warriors return

Steve Kerr says Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Andrew Wiggins should be able to return for Golden State Warriors when Sacramento Kings visit on Thursday.

Golden State are 10/11 to win with a -13 handicap in the Point Spread and the Kings are 13/2 in the Money Line.

Kerr confident trio will play

The Dubs were without the trio, and forward Otto Porter Jr., for the win over San Antonio Spurs last time out but Kerr expects them to be available for the clash with the Kings.

Thompson missed the game in San Antonio as the Warriors are reluctant to play him in back-to-back games after his return to action following a lengthy spell on the sidelines, while Curry and Porter were carrying foot injuries and Wiggins had a knee problem.

Head coach Kerr says there is a chance Serbian forward Nemanja Bjelica could return after missing the last three games with a back injury but he remains questionable.

"Klay was held out just because it was a back-to-back, so he'll be fine tomorrow," said Kerr, via NBC Sports. "Steph, Otto and [Andrew Wiggins] were all banged up but should be good to go tomorrow.

"I don't know about, Beli [Bjelica] is still day-to-day, he's had back spasms and they were still bothering him yesterday so we'll see."

Squad depth paying off

The Warriors fought back from a 17-point deficit to beat the Spurs on Tuesday and record a seventh win in a row, and Kerr feels that shows his team's strength in depth as they managed to extend their winning streak despite the absence of a number of key players.

He added: "The great part of having depth and having young players and having stars like Steph and Klay is that you can mix-and-match and still be able to win and develop guys and look at different combinations and it's a great position to be in organizationally."
