Both players were listed as questionable earlier in the day because of respective injuries, but the Warriors have revealed that they are both available for the home contest.

In fact, after missing the last game against the Hawks with a sore left ankle issue he suffered against the Thunder when the two teams met last time on Saturday, Curry has been restored to the starting lineup to play alongside Klay Thompson in the deadly backcourt.

He will replace Shaun Livingston, who started in his place versus Atlanta.

Curry worked through his regular warmups routine without any issue, while going through a shootaround mini session to get himself ready for the home battle.

He is expected to play without restricted minutes.

Meanwhile, Iguodala will return to the bench and will be available for selection after overcoming a hamstring problem.

Iguodala also sat out the 109-105 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.

Curry comes into this contest leading the NBA in scoring per game with 30.7 points, while shooting 51.5 percent from the floor overall and 46.8 percent from 3-point range.

Golden State (54-5) head coach Steve Kerr said he will be cautious with Curry, who will be taken out of the game the moment he begins to feel uncomfortable.

The reigning NBA regular season MVP scored 46 points, including the winning 3-pointer in the overtime victory in Oklahoma City on Saturday.

In that game, Curry also made 12-of-16 from 3-pointers for 75-percent from long-range.

The Oklahoma City Thunder were beat 103-98 by the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday, this after leading by as many as 22 points and 16 points in the fourth quarter.

Too many turnovers and wayward shot selections cost Oklahoma City the game at the Clippers and Kevin Durant has warned his teammates to start taking care of business when they have the upper hand.
