Warriors’ Iguodala ruled out; Thompson to play

Warriors’ Iguodala ruled out; Thompson to play

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said guard Klay Thompson will play Thursday night in Game 5 against the Houston Rockets, but forward Andre Iguodala has been ruled out.

Both participated in shootaround Thursday morning.

Thompson strained his left knee in the second quarter of Game 4 on Tuesday, but he played through it after receiving treatment in the locker room. Team officials told ESPN there was little doubt that Thompson would be able to play Thursday.

Iguodala missed Game 4 after suffering a left lateral leg contusion when he banged knees with Rockets guard James Harden in the fourth quarter of Game 3 on Sunday. He was listed as questionable Wednesday after participating in parts of practice at the University of Houston.

“He’s dying to play, but he’s not healthy enough,” Kerr said of Iguodala. “We’ll just continue to take it day to day.”

The Warriors are expected to grant Kevon Looney his second consecutive start.

The series is tied at two games apiece.
