The Atlanta Hawks will catch a break on Tuesday night, as Stephen Curry and Andre Iguodala have been ruled out for the Golden State Warriors.

It was announced on Tuesday morning that both Curry (ankle) and Iguodala (hamstring) were listed as questionable for the game, and their absences could be pivotal in terms of Atlanta's chances to pull of an upset victory. The loss of Curry is, quite obviously, enormous for the Warriors, as he is the reigning MVP and arguably the best player in the NBA, but Iguodala is also a vital cog for Golden State, and the Warriors will be quite shorthanded.
At one point, it appeared for all the world as if the signing of Kris Humphries would be the biggest storyline in advance of Tuesday night's game in Oakland. Now, the Warriors might be at least somewhat vulnerable, even in their own building, with a banged-up roster.
Stay tuned throughout the night for all the latest.
