Klay resting; Poole questionable for Warriors-Pistons originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
Thompson, who had his first healthy start to the season since 2018 after rehabbing from two lower leg injuries, has gotten off to a slow start offensively.
The 32-year-old was 5-for-14 from the field in Saturday’s loss and struggled from behind the 3-point line, draining just 1 of 7 attempts.
After making a triumphant return to the court in January, Thompson didn’t play in any of the Warriors’ remaining back-to-backs last season. That could be the case this year as well, or at least until he can “get his legs underneath him,” as coach Steve Kerr put it on Saturday when discussing Thompson's struggles.
The Warriors also might be missing Poole, who left Saturday’s game during overtime after rolling his right ankle. The injury is listed as a sprain on the Warriors-Pistons injury report.
Should Poole miss Sunday’s matchup with Detroit, his presence certainly will be missed after scoring 24 points off the bench against the Hornets.
But as the team looks to improve upon their .500 record at 3-3 on Sunday, they’ll have veterans Curry and Green to help lead the way.
