The Warriors will be without Andre Iguodala again in Game 2 tonight. Klay Thompson, however, should see the court.

The star shooting guard injured his left leg during Game 1 but played most of the game. His status was unsettled heading into tonight, though Golden State coach Steve Kerr had said he was probable.

The Warriors announced moments ago that Thompson is officially available to play. He and guard Patrick McCaw are banged up but good to go.

It should be noted the team is officially calling Thompson's injury a "left lateral leg contusion."

Despite hurting his leg, Thompson scored 24 points in 45 minutes in Game 1.

The Warriors are double-digit favorites in tonight's game. Golden State pulled out a 10-point overtime win in Game 1 on Thursday.

Tipoff for Game 2 is set for 8 p.m. ET from Oracle Arena.

The contest will be televised on ABC.
