Klay Thompson reportedly likely to play in Game 4

Klay Thompson reportedly likely to play in Game 4 The Golden State Warriors apparently only expect Klay Thompson’s absence from the NBA Finals to last one game. Thompson suffered a right hamstring strain in Game 2 of the Finals on Sunday and missed the end of the game with the injury. He was termed a game-time decision for Game 3 of the series on Wednesday, and the Warriors only announced he would miss the game around a half hour prior to game time. During her report before the start of Game 3, ESPN reporter Doris Burke shared that Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told them Thompson is “likely to play in Game 4.” The Warriors were thinking long term with their handling of Thompson.

Kerr's chief concern stemmed from his team's health, namely Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson. Durant suffered a ruptured Achilles in Game 5 on Monday after missing the last nine games with a calf injury. Thompson exited Golden State's Game 6 loss in the third quarter with a knee injury.

"What matters is Kevin Durant is going to miss next season with an Achilles tear. What matters is Klay suffered a knee injury," Kerr said following Golden State's loss on Thursday. "We'll know more later. But it's just brutal, just brutal what these guys have had to deal with."
