The Warriors will once again have to make do without Kevin Durant, who has been ruled out of Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Wednesday night. While the calf injury keeps Durant sidelined, a catrilage fracture has knocked Kevon Looney out of the rest of the series.

Klay Thompson, who has out on the floor at Oracle getting up shots on Tuesday afternoon, is questionable with a mild hamstring strain.  Head coach Steve Kerr detailed the approach to the Thompson situation when he took the podium for media availability.

Thompson clearly grasps the gravity of the situation.

"If there's any pain, it would be a no-go just because of the position we're in," Thompson explained. "This could be a longer series. So, there's no point in going out there and trying to reaggravate it and potentially keep myself out of the whole, entire Finals..."

Andre Iguodala, author of the Game 2 dagger, is good to go for the first game at Oracle, despite a lingering calf issue. The veteran practiced with the team on Tuesday.
