Warriors planning for Game 3 believing Kawhi will play

Kawhi Leonard may be officially listed as questionable for Saturday's Game 3 of the Western Conference finals, but the opposing Golden State Warriors seem pretty sure he's going to play.

"No doubt in my mind that he'll play," Draymond Green told reporters Friday. "(We're) definitely going in with the mindset that he's playing."

Leonard suffered a sprained left ankle coming down on Zaza Pachulia's foot after a controversial sequence in Game 1. The San Antonio Spurs' best player said Friday that the ultimate decision to play will rest with him.

Kevin Durant added that he's "100 percent sure" Leonard will play, according to the San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau.

In reality, if Leonard doesn't suit up Saturday then it will be worth questioning if he plays again this season. By tip time of Game 3, the two teams will have had almost four full days off, with the Spurs trailing the series 2-0. San Antonio led Game 1 by as many as 25 points before Leonard left the contest, and the Spurs are 16.3 points per 100 possessions better with him on the floor in the playoffs.
