OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors will be short-handed for Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday forward Kevon Looney (costal cartilage fracture) will be out for the rest of the series after being hurt in Game 2, while star Kevin Durant (calf), who hasn't played since May 8, will remain out.

Warriors star guard Klay Thompson, who left Game 2 in the fourth quarter with a hamstring injury, is questionable.

"If there's a risk, we'd rather give him the next couple days to continue to heal and hopefully have him out there for Game 4," Kerr said. "It's literally day to day."

Warriors' Looney out indefinitely with costal cartilage fracture

Warriors' Looney out indefinitely with costal cartilage fracture Kevon Looney's run in this year's NBA Finals may be over. The Golden State Warriors forward was diagnosed with a non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture on Monday and will be out indefinitely, the team announced. There reportedly isn't much optimism within the organization that Looney will return this season, though he may be evaluated further, league sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The 23-year-old suffered the injury on an awkward fall during the first half of Game 2 on Sunday after Toronto Raptors superstar Kawhi Leonard plowed into him on a drive to the basket. Looney finished with a rebound and three personal fouls in 10 minutes of action.

Thompson added later: "It would be hard to see me not out there."

Kerr said Durant will get on the floor at the team's practice facility later Tuesday.

"He's out for tomorrow, but improving," Kerr said.

Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, who played Game 2 and hit a three-pointer to seal it, will play Game 3 after suffering a leg injury in Game 1.

The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1 after the Warriors' 109-104 win over the Raptors on Sunday in Toronto.

NBA Finals Game 6 Preview: Can the Warriors pull out all the stop to force a Game 7?.
The Warriors get a second chance to leave Oracle with an everlasting memory. Let’s get it. We believe. It’s the mantra that has been vivaciously coursing through the veins of this franchise for the better part of this century, who’s words still echo and ring through the halls of a stadium literally standing on its last legs. Never since that bygone era, have those words weighed heavier than in the current dilemma the Golden State Warriors find themselves. A 3-2 deficit is a familiar place, but this series has taken a toll unlike any playoff experience the team has had to previously endure.
