Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson is expected to return for Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Friday, league sources told Yahoo Sports, after Golden State made the difficult decision to hold him out right before Wednesday’s Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

Thompson, who is nursing a left hamstring injury he suffered in Game 2, lobbied management and the coaching staff to let him play.

A few hours after announcing Thompson would be held out as a precautionary measure, the Warriors suffered an ugly 123-109 loss as the Raptors took a 2-1 series lead.
