Klay questionable for Game 3 with hamstring strain

Golden State Warriors Kevin Durant arrives for practice

The Warriors are now still without Kevin Durant who remains sidelined with a calf injury, while Kevon Looney has been ruled out indefinitely after suffering a collarbone injury in Game 2.

There's optimism among the Warriors that swingman Klay Thompson will play with a hamstring strain in Game 3 on Wednesday, league source tells ESPN.

Count us among the people who can't see Thompson missing Game 3 unless his leg drastically gets worse.

Looney left Sunday's game in the first half and did not return. The series is tied at 1-all as the series shifts to Oakland for two games.

The 23-year-old Looney has been a key contributor during the 2019 playoff run, averaging more than seven points a game on 73 percent shooting. While still pushing through the absence of Kevin Durant, they have lost Kevon Looney for essentially the rest of the NBA Finals, and now their starting shooting guard could miss Game 3.

Cousins, injured in Game 2 of the first round against the Clippers in just his second career playoff game, started Game 2 of the finals after coming off the bench in the series opener. He was a key to the Warriors' victory Sunday (Monday, PHL time), finishing with 11 points, 10 rebounds, six assists and two blocked shots in 28 minutes while playing in foul trouble.
