Head coach Steve Kerr backtracked a bit on Thompson after the announcement and thinks “Klay’s gonna be fine.”

Thompson left the game and eventually returned, but struggled to 10 points on 4-of-13 shooting from the field.
Iguodala is still dealing with a leg contusion suffered during a Game 3 collision with Rockets guard James Harden that forced him to miss Game 4.
