Warriors' JaVale McGee cleared to play in Game 3 vs. Spurs

Warriors' JaVale McGee cleared to play in Game 3 vs. Spurs

Even with his team in an 0-2 series hole against the Golden State Warriors, San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is managing to keep his sense of humor.

"I'm good", Durant said, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The injury occurred when Durant and Spurs guard Patty Mills got tangled up on a play as the ball got knocked loose. "I'm fine." He did go to the locker room just before the game ended, but the Warriors had the game in the bag.

The team's head coach, Steve Kerr, said Livingston's ankle seemed a bit worse than Durant's, however, he didn't seem bothered by both player's injuries.

McGee has thrived at the starting position center in this series, averaging 12.5 points on 71.4 percent shooting in 17.5 minutes.

"I think they're going to be OK", Kerr told reporters (via NBC Sports Bay Area) after the win in San Antonio.

Warriors' point guard Stephen Curry will begin modified team practices Saturday, the team announced. If the Warriors do indeed start the series on April 28, and Curry is able to return at the six week mark, he'd likely return for Game 3 of the series, as Thompson has predicted.
