Klay Thompson questionable, Kevon Looney out for Game 3
The Golden State Warriors provided updates Monday night on the status of two players who were injured in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday.
Klay Thompson underwent an MRI on his hamstring after injuring it on Sunday and has a mild strain. He is questionable for Wednesday’s Game 3.
Kevon Looney has a non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture and will be out indefinitely.

Looney was averaging 7.2 points and 4.6 rebounds in 20.3 minutes per game this postseason. He provides excellent depth at the center position for the Warriors. His absence should be buoyed by the presence of DeMarcus Cousins, who returned from a quad injury to play in both Games 1 and 2 of the Finals.
Thompson is a major contributor to Golden State on both ends of the floor. He suggested immediately after Sunday’s game that he would not miss Game 3. Known for his toughness, Thompson did not miss any games in last year’s Finals despite injuring his ankle.
The series is tied 1-1 between Golden State and Toronto. The next two games will be played at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
