Thompson questionable for Game 3, Looney out indefinitely

Thompson questionable for Game 3, Looney out indefinitely

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (11) shoots between Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry (7) and guard Fred VanVleet (23) during the third quarter in game two of the 2019 NBA Finals at Scotiabank Arena.

Thompson told coach Steve Kerr after the game he would be fine, but a scan on Monday confirmed a "mild strain of the hamstring". Despite being blanked for almost half the third quarter of Game 2, the Raptors were within two points in the final seconds. He said after the game that he expected to play in Game 3, with the series tied at 1.

Those injuries, however, could take a toll and there's no guarantee Golden State will be able to cover the Warriors vs. Raptors spread in Game 3 on Wednesday.

The Warriors remain buoyed by the fact that they still found a way to win Game 2 and the belief that Durant will be back at some point in this series.

Kevon Looney has a non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture and will be out indefinitely.

Thompson is averaging 19.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.4 assists on 44 percent shooting from the floor and 41.1 percent from the three-point line in 18 playoff games this season.

Programming note: Watch the NBA Finals pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Wednesday at 4 p.m., streaming live on the MyTeams app. Golden State will be without Kevin Durant (calf) and a hamstring injury late in Game 2 has created uncertainty surrounding Thompson. He is anticipated to return at some point during the Finals.
