Warriors’ Thompson expected to play Game 4 vs. Raptors, Durant still out

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr confirms that Kevin Durant is out for Game 4 vs. the Raptors, and barring any setbacks, Klay Thompson will play.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Golden State Warriors will get one of their two injured stars back for Game 4 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors tomorrow.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr says guard Klay Thompson will play after missing Wednesday’s Game 3 loss with a hamstring injury suffered Sunday in Toronto.

However, Kerr says forward Kevin Durant (calf) will remain out. Durant hasn’t played since May 8.

Kerr says he hopes Durant can make it back during the series. He was originally hoping Durant would get on the floor to work with teammates today, but that did not occur.

The Raptors lead the best-of-seven series 2-1 after a 123-109 win in Game 3.

Game 5 of the series is next Monday in Toronto.
