Normally we wouldn’t get this type of slate on a Tuesday but thus is 2021. There are nine games in the NBA tonight and a few teams playing the second night of a back-to-back set. The Golden State Warriors are expected to get Stephen Curry back for a game against the New York Knicks at The Garden, which would be a pretty big draw if we had a packed arena. The Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors will run it back on the second of a two-game set. The Washington Wizards complete the L.A. swing after upsetting the Lakers on Monday, this time taking on the Clippers. Let’s take a look at how the injury reports look before lineups later on.
