Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson said his hand is 100 percent healthy and he will play Tuesday against the San Antonio Spurs, according to Diamond Leung of the San Jose Mercury-News.
Thompson, 24, did not play Sunday against the Phoenix Suns because of a sprained right hand as the Warriors fell 107-95, their first loss of the season. Leandro Barbosa started in place of Thompson and had 12 points in 31 minutes.
Thompson is averaging 23.8 points per game while shooting 40.6 percent from three-point range in five games this season.
He signed a four-year, $70 million contract extension with the Warriors last month.
Warriors power forward David Lee is expected to miss two weeks after re-aggravating a hamstring injury during his season debut against the Los Angeles Clippers last week. Lee missed the first three games of the season with the injury.
Golden State will host the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday night at home at 10:30 p.m.
