The Warriors took their decision on Klay Thompson (hamstring) nearly to tipoff before opting to sit him for Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Golden State explained its choice, not by saying he wasn’t healthy enough to play, but by noting the risk of him aggravating the injury.
That all points to Thompson playing Game 4, and apparently he will.
Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson will return for Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday, league sources told Yahoo Sports
One note of caution: Thompson reportedly pushed to play Game 3 while Warriors officials were reluctant. So, if this is coming from Thompson’s side, it might be overly optimistic.
But for all the reasons outlined above, it always seemed likely Thompson would return for Game 4. So, this report only supports the previously held prediction.
