His status is still unclear for Game 1, but Thompson’s MRI results were good news.

NBA: Playoffs-Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Clippers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

An MRI on the ankle of Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson came back clean, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

It has yet to be determined if Thompson will play in Sunday’s Game 1 against the Houston Rockets, and the team will not make that call until after his pregame workout. There is, however, optimism that Thompson will play, though concern that he’ll be limited.

Thompson sprained his ankle during Friday’s Game 6 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. On Saturday, coach Steve Kerr admitted that the injury was a “significant sprain.”

The quick turnaround between the first and second playoff series did Thompson no favors, as he had barely any time at all to rest and heal.

Steph Curry also rolled his ankle during the game, but it appears that his injury is less severe than Thompson’s. All signs point to Curry playing.

We’ll keep you updated on both players and their injuries.
