Warriors big man Kevon Looney will play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday, head coach Steve Kerr said

Looney suffered a fractured collarbone in Golden State's Game 2 victory on Sunday. He has since been "lobbying hard" to return from injury to play in the NBA Finals, according to ESPN's Ramona Shelburne.

Doctors believe Looney's fracture near his collarbone won't get worse. He was listed as questionable on the injury report for Game 4.

It was initially believed that Looney would be out for the remainder of the series, but ESPN's Tim Bontemps reported on Thursday that there was a chance forward could return during the Finals.

The Warriors, who are down 2–1 in the series, are also playing without injured star Kevin Durant on Friday. 

Golden State will look to even the series on Friday night when they play the Raptors in Game 4 at Oracle Arena. Tipoff is slated for 9 p.m. ET.
