Warriors' Kevon Looney to play Game 4, Steve Kerr says | Sporting News

Kevon Looney is in the lineup for the Warriors for Game 4.

Steve Kerr told reporters Friday the forward is playing after suffering a serious injury in Game 2.

Looney suffered a fracture near his collarbone in Game 2 and initial reports said he was out for the rest of the NBA Finals.

But according to ESPN, he was lobbying hard earlier in the day to play in Friday’s Game 4.

The report said he has learned his injury cannot get worse with playing so he is trying hard to get back into the lineup.

He was listed as questionable for Game 4 at Oracle Arena which starts at 9 p.m. ET.

The Warriors already had one improbable comeback from injury this postseason as DeMarcus Cousins returned after tearing his quad in the first round.

Klay Thompson reportedly is playing in Game 4 as well after he suffered a hamstring injury in Game 2 and missed Game 3.

As for Kevin Durant he is out for Game 4 and some believe it is a real possibility he is unable to come back from his calf injury at all in the NBA Finals.

The Warriors are down 2-1 going into Friday’s game.
