OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Kevon Looney got a second opinion and a second chance to play in these NBA Finals.
After Warriors coach Steve Kerr said Looney would miss the remainder of the series against Toronto with a displaced first costal cartilage fracture, the team now says he may be able to play in Game 4.
Kerr says Looney is "just tough and he wants to play."
Looney got hurt in Game 2 when he was defending a drive by Toronto's Kawhi Leonard.
Looney has been a major part of the Warriors' big-man rotation. His addition is an obvious boost.
