Steve Kerr on Iguodala: "Day to day. He's dying to play, but he's not healthy enough to play."— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) May 24, 2018
According to Coach Steve Kerr, Klay Thompson will be available to play today in Houston, but former Finals MVP Andre Iguodala is still out, and is considered day-to-day. Both were considered questionable prior to game day.
Thompson suffered a left knee strain during the second quarter of Game 4. Iguodala missed Game 4 completely after banging knees with Rockets guard James Harden in Game 3, resulting in a left lateral leg contusion.
The series is currently tied 2-2, with the Rockets reclaiming home court advantage following an impressive come-from-behind 95-92 Game 4 win in Oakland.
