Both Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson were out during the Warriors' Game 3 defeat.
Warriors guard Klay Thompson (hamstring) is reportedly expected to play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday, Golden State coach Steve Kerr told The Athletic's Tim Kawakami.
Additionally, the status of forward Kevin Durant, who's been out with a calf injury, is unknown.
Before Wednesday's game, Warriors owner Joe Lacob expressed that he is undoubtedly sure Durant would return to the series. "Not tonight, but I do [think Durant will return]," he said. "... I'm serious as a heart attack."
Both Thompson and Durant were held out of Game 3 on Wednesday night. The Warriors lost the contest, 123–109, falling behind 2–1 in the series.
Thompson was a game-time decision before being ultimately ruled out. He suffered the injury during the fourth quarter of Golden State's Game 2 victory when he kicked out his leg following a three-point shot attempt. He didn't return.
Durant has been out for each of the Warriors' past eight games. The two-time Finals MVP has averaged 34.2 points on 52% shooting in 11 games this postseason.
