Klay Thompson is expected to play in Game 3 of the NBA Finals despite a hamstring injury.
Per ESPN, there is optimism among the Warriors that swingman Klay Thompson will play with a mild hamstring strain in Game 3 in Oakland on Wednesday, a league source told ESPN. He will rehab the injury over the next two days.
Thompson, who is officially listed as “questionable” for the next game, exited in the fourth quarter of Game 2 with left hamstring tightness. He said after the game that he expected to play Game 3, with the series tied at one game apiece.
The results of Thompson’s MRI were slightly delayed because the Warriors’charter plane landed later than expected Monday morning, pushing back the process a few hours. The plane didn’t arrive back in Oakland until after 4 a.m. local time Monday.
