The other day @TimBontemps reported there was a chance Kevon Looney plays in the Finals w/ a fracture near his collarbone. Today he’s listed as questionable in the injury report for Game 4. Word is he’s been lobbying hard to play as the doctors believe the injury won’t get worse

The report said he has learned his injury cannot get worse with playing so he is trying hard to get back into the lineup.
He was listed as questionable for Game 4 at Oracle Arena which starts at 9 p.m. ET.
The Warriors already had one improbable comeback from injury this postseason as DeMarcus Cousins returned after tearing his quad in the first round.
Klay Thompson reportedly is playing in Game 4 as well after he suffered a hamstring injury in Game 2 and missed Game 3.
As for Kevin Durant he is out for Game 4 and some believe it is a real possibility he is unable to come back from his calf injury at all in the NBA Finals.
The Warriors are down 2-1 going into Friday’s game.
