Warriors lose center, while Durant and Thompson's status remain in doubt

Thompson had missed the final 7:59 of the Warriors' Game 2 win over Toronto on Sunday about two minutes following a missed 3. The big man recorded one rebound and zero points in 10:23 of action prior to his departure. Both played well as the Warriors tied the series at 1-1.

It is possible that Durant, who has been engaging in on-court drills but has yet to participate in a full practice since his injury, could come back in Game 3, but he is considered more likely to return for Game 4 on Friday.

Warriors center Kevon Looney joined Thompson in the locker room during Game 2, exiting in the first quarter.

Thompson left Game 2 against the Toronto Raptors with left hamstring tightness early in the fourth quarter after he landed awkwardly while attempting a three-pointer. Stephen Curry (dehydration), Andre Iguodala (banged head) and DeMarcus Cousins (rustiness stemmed from a 14-game absence with a left quad injury) are also fighting through different ailments.

But if negotiations should fail, the lawmakers warn they may have no choice but to take action in Congress to stop Trump. He added that "I think that Mexico will step up and do what should have been done".

Warriors coach Steve Kerr sounded more leery.

The Warriors continue to await the return of All-NBA forward Kevin Durant, who hasn't played since sustaining a right calf injury in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals on May 8. Same thing for Andrew Bogut, Jonas Jerebko and Jordan Bell because of Looney's injury.

After 13 seasons in the NBA, Kyle Lowry is enjoying his first trip to the NBA Finals, and he knows just who to thank for helping him get there.

"I don't see myself missing Game 3", Thompson said.
