Kawhi Leonard is officially listed as questionable for Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night.
But the Warriors are preparing as if Kawhi will be in uniform.
"You definitely go in with the mindset that he's gonna play," Draymond Green told reporters. "Gonna prepare for him to play ... no doubt in my mind that he will play."
Leonard tweaked his already sprained ankle early in the third quarter of Game 1 and did not return.
He was unable to play in Game 2.
On Thursday morning, Kawhi was asked how his ankle is feeling.
"It's getting better. Just day-to-day ... see how it feels tomorrow," he told reporters. "I've been at practice. Just watching in (the) stands. Just a lot of treatment."
Any thoughts on the idea that Zaza Pachulia's closeout was a "dirty play?"
"I'm just focused on getting healthy and getting ready to play for Game 3," Kawhi said. "I'm not worried about that."
Durant said he's "100 percent sure" Kawhi Leonard will play tomorrow. Preparing as such.— Connor Letourneau (@Con_Chron) May 19, 2017
