Lodi News-Sentinel - - SPORTS - FROM STAFF AND WIRE RE­PORTS — Jon Becker, Mer­cury News

The War­riors were still wait­ing Mon­day night to find out whether or not Klay Thomp­son’s left ham­string in­jury will al­low him to play in Game 3 of the NBA Fi­nals on Wed­nes­day.

ESPN re­ported Thomp­son hadn’t yet un­der­gone an MRI as of early Mon­day evening as the test was delayed be­cause the team’s flight didn’t ar­rive un­til the early morn­ing hours.

Test re­sults on Thomp­son’s ham­string should be avail­able later Mon­day night, ac­cord­ing to ESPN.

None­the­less, there were signs the in­jury that forced Thomp­son to miss the fi­nal eight min­utes of the War­riors’ Game 2 win over the Rap­tors won’t cause him to miss any time. Thomp­son as­sured peo­ple af­ter the game he’d be fine, and the All-Star guard was seen walk­ing with­out a limp af­ter ar­riv­ing at Oak­land In­ter­na­tional Air­port af­ter 4 a.m. Mon­day.

Thomp­son told re­porters in Toronto on Sun­day that he’s “good” and that his ham­string “is just tight.”
