Is Stephen Curry playing tonight vs. Rockets? Warriors All-Star’s updated status

After a thrilling home win over the Nets on Saturday, the Warriors make their way to Texas to take on the Rockets Monday night.

Winners of five straight, Golden State looks to extend its win streak as it visits a Houston team that is currently at the bottom of the Western Conference standings. The Warriors, on the other hand, are still within striking distance of the first-place Suns, who are on a winning streak of their own.

The last time these two teams met, things came down to the wire with Stephen Curry knocking down the first buzzer-beating game-winner of his 13-year career. On Monday night, Curry will look to do his part to push the Warriors to a convincing win and avoid a close one.
