Report: Warriors activating Patrick McCaw for Game 6
The Golden State Warriors will receive an unexpected boost for Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals.
The Warriors will activate Patrick McCaw for Game 6, nearly two months after he suffered a frightening leg injury against the Sacramento Kings.
The Golden State Warriors are planning to activate Pat McCaw for Game 6 tonight against Houston, league sources tell Yahoo. McCaw is expected to be in uniform for first time since scary injury on March 31.

Anthony Slater of the Athletic warned that asking much from McCaw might be a mistake.
Patrick McCaw's missed two months since that scary fall, had trouble walking/sleeping for about a month. Very slow recovery, sped up the past few weeks. Would be an almost impossible ask to drop him right in these West Finals and expect much. But wing depth is needed.

McCaw’s horrible injury wasn’t as bad as it could have been, but it’s still impressive that he’s back this soon. It may be an indication to Andre Iguodala’s status, such is Golden State’s desperation to get some help on the wing.
