Warriors optimistic Klay Thompson suits up for Game 3 vs. Raptors

Warriors optimistic Klay Thompson suits up for Game 3 vs. Raptors

The Golden State Warriors will definitely be without Kevin Durant and potentially Klay Thompson for Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

Earlier tonight, Stadium's Shams Charania reported that Thompson's MRI results revealed a hamstring strain.

It is possible that Durant, who has been engaging in on-court drills but has yet to participate in a full practice since his injury, could come back in Game 3, but he is considered more likely to return for Game 4 on Friday.

Thompson, who is officially listed as "questionable" for the next game, exited in the fourth quarter of Game 2 with left hamstring tightness.

Golden State will look to take a 2-1 Finals lead on Wednesday night.

After a bit of bad news about Kevon Looney to start Monday night, the Warriors got a glimmer of hope with regards to Klay Thompson's health.

Looney's absence just puts even greater weight on four-time All-Star DeMarcus Cousins, who has played the last two games after a six-week absence because of a torn calf.

So we have a definite answer about one of the Warriors dealing with injuries in the NBA Finals.

With about 10:40 left in the fourth quarter, Klay missed a left-wing 3-pointer and landed awkwardly. That pain persisted on Monday, leaving him with little help that he can return at any point during the NBA Finals. "He thinks it is minor, so I don't know what that means going forward". Thompson still finished with a team-high 25 points, along with five boards and five assists in 32 minutes as Golden State hung on for a 109-104 victory over the Toronto Raptors.
