The Golden State Warriors have ruled Thompson as questionable for Game 3 but sharp shooter Klay Thompson is adamant that he will most likely be good to go come game day.
“It’s a game-time decision, but personally it’s hard to see me not playing,” Thompson explained via Bleacher Report. “I’ll hopefully feel a lot better tomorrow to be able to go.”
“Oh, it’s much better than it was Sunday night,” Thompson said on Tuesday. “So hopefully the same progress will be made and I’ll be moving like my normal self tomorrow. But the pain level wasn’t too crazy at all.”
“Obviously I would do anything I can to be out there, but it’s all in their hands,” Thompson said of the training staff. “If there’s any pain, it will be a no-go just because of the position we’re in. This could be a longer series, so there’s no point in trying to go out there and re-aggravate it and potentially keep myself out of the whole entire Finals instead of just one game.”
“Probably, if you only feel it on a certain couple moves, you’re fine,” Thompson said. “But if you feel it every step of the way, that’s not a good sign. I do not feel it with every move I make, only on certain ones. So you can kind of play through that. But if it was something that was consistent whenever I move my leg or every sharp cut or every sprint, that would not be good. But it’s only a few exact movements that I really feel it. So that’s very encouraging.”
Thompson surprised a lot of people by recovering from a high ankle sprain in Game 1 of last year’s NBA Finals, he not only finished the game, but also played in Game 2.
He’s going to play, no doubt about it.
