Warriors' Gary Payton II Questionable For Tuesday vs. Pistons


January 18, 2022

Golden State Warriors guard Gary Payton II (lower back spasms) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday night’s matchup with the Detroit Pistons, per NBC Sports’s Dalton Johnson.

Payton was listed as probable earlier on Tuesday as it seemed likely that he was set to return from a two-game absence due to back spasms. Head coach Steve Kerr told reporters that he has since been downgraded to questionable which now puts some jeopardy into his participation in the game. His status will be something to keep an eye on for tonight and, if he is unable to go, heading into the team’s back-to-back on Thursday and Friday.

Payton is averaging 7.8 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 0.8 assists per game in 40 appearances this season.
