In less than a few hours before the Warriors begin the Western Conference semifinals against the Houston Rockets, Golden State faces uncertainty as both Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson are questionable for Game 1 Sunday afternoon with ankle injuries.

“He’s okay,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said when asked about Thompson’s status Saturday afternoon. “He and Steph both came in this morning to get some treatment but I haven’t even spoken with [Warriors director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini] today.”

While Curry – who rolled his ankle in of Friday’s 129-110 Game 6 victory against the Clippers – finished the game, Thompson left in the third quarter and had a very noticeable limp as he walked out of Staples Center on Friday night.

Throughout his career, Thompson has been a model of consistency. He missed just one game during the first three years of his NBA career and has never played fewer than 73 games in a season. In Game 1 of last year’s NBA Finals, Thompson went down with what looked to be a significant ankle sprain after colliding with Cleveland Cavaliers guard JR Smith. He didn’t miss any games, though. and helped the Warriors to their second straight title.
