There is good news on the injury front for the Golden State Warriors following their 123-103 win over the Phoenix Suns on Monday night.

The reigning champions bounced back from their 100-98 defeat to the Nuggets on Sunday with a dominant win at the Oracle Arena to take their regular season record to 3-1.

Stephen Curry impressed yet again with 29 points and eight assists while Kevin Durant posted 22 points of his own. Klay Thompson also scored 16 points but only managed 25 minutes after suffering a sprain on his left ankle that forced him off in the third quarter.

Thompson is usually a durable player who had not dealt with many injuries. That was until the second half of last season where he missed a couple of games, and so, there were concerns about the extent of the 28-year-old's injury.

However, Thompson's sprain was just mild, according to head coach Steve Kerr who expects the guard to feature against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday night in Oakland.

"He just told me he was fine," Kerr said after the game, as per Yahoo. "He said he could've gone back into the game. We'd taken him out for precautionary reasons."

Meanwhile, DeMarcus Cousins is still not practicing but is progressing well, according to the latest Warriors update.

"DeMarcus continues to make good progress with his rehabilitation program. After spending the last few weeks doing various individual on-court activities and drills, he will, in the near future, be integrated into controlled aspects of team practices, although not scrimmages at this point. Additionally, he will continue with his off-court strength and conditioning program," it said.

Cousins ended his 2017/18 season when he tore his Achilles tendon in January when he was with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Later entering free agency while he was recovering, he claimed he didn't receive any offers, prompting him to contact the Warriors who used their mid-level exception to sign the All-Star on a one-year deal.

Kerr revealed earlier this month that there was no fixed schedule for the 28-year-old's return, though many speculate he could be on the court during the Christmas period at the earliest.

"We didn’t really have any expectations in terms of, you know, a timetable," Kerr explained. "So I can’t say that he’s ahead of schedule. He’s definitely not behind schedule. The rehab has gone really well. The problem is with an Achilles, it’s a tricky injury to come back from because there’s a lot of motion and movement. It’s not as simple as a ligament healing in your knee or elbow or something. Your whole body depends on your Achilles for movement and balance and coordination."

"So his Achilles is healed. And now, it’s about all of that other stuff, all the movement. That’s where Rick Celebrini comes into play, our new director of performance here. Rick is great. DeMarcus is working closely with him. But he has taken part in the last two days in practice, all the non-contact stuff. It’s good to get him out there," he added.

Cousins was recently signed to a multiyear deal with Puma and will serve as the face of their brand as they make their comeback with basketball shoes for the first time in nearly 20 years.
