Warriors’ Klay Thompson not eligible for supermax contract this summer after All-NBA team snub

Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson won’t be eligible for a supermax contract extension this summer after failing to make the All-NBA cut this season.

Warriors’ Andre Iguodala, Klay Thompson listed as questionable for Game 5

HOUSTON — The Warriors’ Andre Iguodala (left lateral leg contusion) and Klay Thompson (left knee strain) are listed as questionable for Game 5 Thursday night of the Western Conference finals against the Rockets. Iguodala missed Tuesday’s Game 4 loss after sustaining the injury late in Game 3. After tweaking his knee early in the second quarter of Game 4, Thompson headed to the locker room and was evaluated by the team’s training staff. He returned little more than four minutes later. Iguodala participated partially in practice Wednesday at the...

Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala are both questionable for Game 5

The Warriors could be seriously shorthanded in Houston. Things are starting to get tense for the Golden State Warriors. After blowing some big leads during Tuesday’s Game 4, the Warriors find themselves tied with the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals. Both teams have won two games, effectively making it a best of three series. And Houston has home court advantage. And now things might be getting even more difficult, as the Warriors could be out two starters for Thursday’s Game 5. Andre Iguodala, who missed Game 4 due to a knee contusion, is questionable for Game 5. Klay...

Klay Thompson expected to play Game 5; Andre Iguodala to be game-time decision

HOUSTON — Warriors guard Klay Thompson (left knee strain) is expected to play Game 5 of the Western Conference finals Thursday night against the Rockets.

"We'll just continue to take it day-to-day." Guard Klay Thompson, who was previously listed as questionable with a left knee strain, has been cleared to play Game 5.

Despite experiencing knee soreness after a collision early in the first quarter, Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson expects to play in Game 5 on Thursday, according to NBA.com’s David Aldridge. He came back into the game after his usual rest and made two 3-pointers, playing a heavy dose of minutes throughout.

Klay Thompson leaves Game 2 after tweaking knee

Klay Thompson leaves Game 2 after tweaking knee

Hopefully it’s only minor. At this point, it’s starting to seem like the only thing that can stop the Golden State Warriors is an injury. Hopefully that’s not in the process of happening. Already down Andre Iguodala, who suffered a knee contusion in Game 3, Golden State lost another player during Game 2. Shooting guard Klay Thompson exited the game after appearing to tweak his knee. Thompson left the game on his own power, which is great news, but also headed straight to the tunnel with Chelsea Lane. Thankfully, the Warriors cleared him to return. Klay heads to the locker room...

Should the Warriors have called timeout?

Should the Warriors have called timeout?

No. Except maybe yes. Tuesday night’s Game 4 between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets came down to the final possession. Down two, the Warriors got the ball back on a rebound with just over 10 seconds remaining, and a prime opportunity to tie or win the game. They didn’t. Kevin Durant brought the ball down the court, and ultimately passed to a well-guarded Klay Thompson. Thompson tried to drive and create space, couldn’t achieve any, and forced up a shot that badly missed. Ball game. Since things didn’t work in Golden State’s favor, there’s been a lot of...

View from Houston: Rockets were built specifically for this moment

HOUSTON — If not now, when? This is the moment that the remade Rockets were built for. This is the shot that James Harden, Daryl Morey and Co. have waited three long years for. Even ground against the superpower Warriors. Home-court advantage with the NBA Finals on the line. Confidence, momentum and swagger for the locals in red, with Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Steve Kerr and Co. regrouping on the other side. To quote a man waiting to board a cross-country flight — and publicly...

Warriors vs Rockets, Game 5: Andre Iguodala out, Klay Thompson in

It’s the most important game of the series, and the Warriors will be without one starter, but thankfully not two. If you’re nervous, I don’t particularly blame you. This is the 97th game of the year for both the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets, and it is by far the most important for both. With the series tied at two games apiece, the winner of the game will have two chances - one at home and one on the road - to clinch the series, and advance to the NBA Finals. In other words, both teams have their backs against the wall, which makes this game as nerve-wracking as it...

Preview: Warriors limp into Houston with series tied at 2-2

After a horrid loss in Game 4, the Warriors travel to Beyonce’s hometown for a critical Game 5 against the Rockets. I’ll keep it brief. Game 4 was an emotional roller coaster with great twists and turns that ultimately ended with everyone puking on each other. Today is a new day. Klay Thompson strained his knee and tried playing through it. Andre Iguodala was out with a leg contusion. Their injuries played a role in the Warriors fourth quarter collapse, but the Warriors lost on their own. Their play was defined by bad shots and a lack of focus. The Dubs made three field goals in the...

Warriors vs Rockets Game 5 halftime score: Tied up at 45

Things are getting intense: Game 5 started the way Game 4 ended: With the Golden State Warriors looking stagnant on offense, with no rhythm, and having a hard time scoring. Thankfully, their defense kept them treading water long enough that they could crawl back in it. And now we have ourselves one heck of a game, with the Warriors and Houston Rockets tied 45-45. And the Warriors have quite a bit of momentum heading into the third. For Golden State, it was all Kevin Durant early, as he seemed to be the only player who could get anything going. Klay Thompson and Stephen Curry starter to...
