The Warriors were able to cruise to an easy victory over the Cavaliers on Tuesday despite being short four of their top six players due to injuries and rest.
On Thursday against the Mavericks, the Dubs will likely be closer to full strength. Here’s The Chronicle’s Rusty Simmons:
Mark Jackson said Andrew Bogut (ankle), Harrison Barnes (knee) and Carl Landry (shoulder) will return to lineup tonight vs. Dallas.

Barnes and Landry sat out because their injuries prevented them from playing, while Bogut took the night off to rest his recovering left ankle, which will be the case for every second game of a back-to-back until the all-star break.
Stephen Curry also missed the Cavs game after re-aggravating his right ankle the night before against the Raptors. He wasn’t present for morning shootaround, and he will be held out again Thursday night.
As expected, Stephen Curry (ankle) will not play tonight vs. Dallas. Jarrett Jack will start for the Warriors at point guard.
