Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has been known to rest his veterans at times during the regular season, especially when playing road games on consecutive nights. San Antonio won 99-79 at Sacramento on Friday night.

Duncan, Ginobili and Tony Parker all sat out San Antonio's 104-102 win against the Warriors on Dec. 19. Parker is expected to start at point guard.

Warriors swingman Andre Iguodala was inactive for the third straight game with tendinitis in his right knee.
