Warriors' Klay Thompson expected to play, Andre Iguodala out for Game 2 of NBA Finals

After losing Game 1 of the NBA Finals in overtime, one LeBron called "one of the toughest losses of my career," the injuries reported on the Warriors may help the Cavaliers slightly in Game 2.

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is expected to play in Game 2 after injuring his ankle during Game 1, according to ESPN.  However, it's hard to believe he will be at 100%. Thompson left Game 1 in the first quarter after J.R. Smith slid into his legs while chasing down a pass. Thompson reentered the game in the second quarter.

Golden State listed Thompson as questionable, but a couple hours before the game, ESPN's Ramona Shelburne said he would be suiting up.

Golden State is also down forward Andre Iguodala, who was unable to play in Game 1 of the Finals. Iguodala, who was the NBA Finals MVP in 2015 against the Cavs, also missed the last four games of the Western Conference Finals against the Houston Rockets after suffering from a leg contusion and bone bruise in Game 3 of the series. ESPN reports Iguodala will not play in Sunday's game. The sports outlet reports he did not participate in practice.
