Klay Thompson is a game-time decision, but the Warriors two-time MVP is good to go.

NBA: Playoffs-Golden State Warriors at Los Angeles Clippers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Steph Curry is good to go for Game 1 between the Golden State Warriors and the Houston Rockets.

Curry injured his ankle during Friday’s victory over the Los Angeles Clippers. His ankle was wrapped after the game, but he was moving well, and didn’t express much concern.

Steve Kerr listed Curry as questionable on Saturday, but prior to Sunday’s Game 1, the coach said that Curry will play.

Curry’s availability is huge against a Rockets team that is firing on all cylinders. It goes without saying that Curry is one of, if not the most important player for the Warriors, and he is a serious catalyst against Houston. His loss would have been huge.

Klay Thompson, who also sprained his ankle on Friday, is still questionable for Game 1. His status will be determined at game time.

The Warriors and Rockets play at 12:30 p.m. PT on ABC from Oracle Arena in Oakland.
