Warriors' Thompson questionable for game two of NBA Finals
Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson is questionable for game two against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals on Sunday.
Thompson is dealing with a left lateral contusion after hurting his ankle during Thursday's 124-114 overtime victory against the Cavaliers in Oakland.
The All-Star guard told reporters on Saturday that he is optimistic and will "do what [he] possibly can to play."
Thompson experienced pain after colliding with Cavaliers guard JR Smith in game one at Oracle Arena.
