NBA - US Sports: Kerr eases Wiggins concerns

Golden State Warriors forward Andrew Wiggins is listed as questionable for Sunday's trip to Dallas Mavericks but coach Steve Kerr expects him to be available.

Golden State can be backed at 5/4 to win on Sunday in the Money Line and Dallas are priced at 20/29.

The Dubs hold a 2-0 lead after opening the Western Conference Finals with back-to-back wins in San Francisco, claiming a 112-87 victory in the opener before fighting back from 19 points down to win Game 2 126-117.

GSW on verge of finals place

If Golden State were to take a 3-0 lead on Sunday it would put them on the verge of a place in the Finals Series but they may be without Wiggins as he is rated as questionable due to ankle soreness.

However, Kerr is convinced Wiggins will be able to feature in the first game of the series in Dallas and he says he was unaware the 27-year-old was carrying an injury until he was informed of his status by the Warriors' vice president of communications Raymond Ridder prior to his meetings with reporters.

"To be honest, I didn't know he was hurt until Raymond just told me he was questionable," said Kerr, via the News & Observer.

He added: "I expect him to play. It's just standard procedure if someone gets an injury, you have to report it. Technically, he's questionable, but we expect him to play."

Dallas still optimistic

Dallas will feel they still have a chance to forcing their way back into the series after recovering from 2-0 down against top seeds Phoenix Suns in the previous round. 

The Mavs have a virtually fully fit squad for Sunday's game with long-term injury victim Tim Hardaway their only absentee, while Golden State are missing James Wiseman, Gary Payton and Andre Iguodala.
