OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry went through all of Thursday's practice and is expected to play in Game 3 after dislocating the middle finger in his left hand during Tuesday's 115-109 Game 2 win over the Houston Rockets.
Curry, who had his middle finger and ring finger taped together while going through his normal post-practice shooting routine on Thursday like he did during Game 2, did not appear to be in pain while taking shots.
Thompson and the Warriors flew to Houston Thursday afternoon and will practice in Houston on Friday in advance of Game 3 on Saturday night.
With Curry's finger injury, as well as his own ankle injury, Thompson acknowledged that the opportunity to close out a series and earn a few extra days off looms large.
Any rest is always great rest but at the end of the day if we have to play a couple more extra basketball games life is still good, and it's fun to play, so it could be worse."
