Report: Warriors star Klay Thompson’s MRI on ankle comes back clean
Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson underwent an MRI on his injured right ankle on Saturday night, and the results came back clean, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Thompson will go through a pregame workout before Game 1 against the Houston Rockets before his playing status is determined.
While there’s optimism that Thompson will play, there are questions about how the injury will affect his mobility:
There’s optimism that Thompson will play Game 1 but bigger question is whether there will be limitations on his mobility, sources tell ESPN. https://t.co/90yuZGWgUd

Klay Thompson suffered the injury in the Warriors’ Game 6 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. Fellow star Stephen Curry also tweaked his ankle in that victory, making the Game 5 loss at Oracle Arena rather costly.
While it looks like both Thompson and Curry will play in Game 1, being limited against the Rockets is bad news. Thompson’s two-way play is going to be very important, while Curry’s defense is sure to be relentlessly targeted.
Still, a limited Thompson and Curry is better than no Thompson and Curry.
