The Golden State Warriors and Cleveland Cavaliers are in the NBA Finals for the fourth-consecutive year. As LeBron and company look to exact revenge, Steph Curry and the Warriors are looking to back up last year's title.

Tonight, the Warriors are hosting Game 1.

They had to do so without Andre Iguodala, who has been out since he bumped knees with James Harden.

That's not the only bad news.

Golden State might need to win without Klay Thompson as well, who just left the game with a knee injury.

J.R. Smith appears to have slipped into Thompson's knee, which bends in a very unnatural manner.

Hopefully he'll be able to return.

We'll update his status when it becomes known.
