The Golden State Warriors have listed two starters — guard Klay Thompson and forward Andre Iguodala — as questionable for Game 5 of their Western Conference finals series against the Houston Rockets on Thursday.
The best-of-seven series returns to Houston tied two games apiece.
Thompson strained his left knee in Game 4 on Tuesday when he tumbled to the floor on a drive to the basket in the second quarter. He left the game briefly and ended up scoring 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting in 39 minutes, well below his 19.4 points per game average this postseason.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters Thompson “is moving around really well. I think Klay is going to be fine.”
Kerr said Iguodala, who sat out Tuesday’s game with a sore left knee after banging knees with the Rockets’ James Harden in the Warriors’ blowout win in Game 3 on Sunday, is feeling better and making progress.
Iguodala is averaging 7.9 points and 4.9 rebounds per game in the postseason.
