Thompson Questionable for Game 3, Looney Out for the Finals
The Golden State Warriors just cannot catch a break.
As DeMarcus Cousins comes back from a torn quad, the Warriors are hit with a couple more injuries. Kevon Looney, who has become the Warriors most versatile big man – outside of Cousins of course – will be out indefinitely and will most likely miss the remainder of the NBA Finals with a fractured collarbone sustained in Game 2.
The injury is believed to have happened when Looney landed awkwardly on Toronto Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet when going up to defend the rim.
In other news, Klay Thompson is questionable for Game 3 after test results returned, diagnosing the All-Star shooting guard with a “mild” hamstring strain. The Warriors remain optimistic that Thompson will play on Wednesday night, but for a player who relies on moving around screens, cutting, and running a ton of miles in game, the Warriors may choose to rest Thompson for at least one game.
Known as one of the tougher players in the league, Thompson has not yet missed a Warriors postseason game in his career.
