After exiting in the first quarter of Friday's home game against the Atlanta Hawks with a lower back strain, Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson returned to practice Saturday.

Thompson seemed fine as he shot three's with Andre Iguodala and Marreese Speights showing no lingering effects from last night's scare when he left the court just six minutes in grimacing and grabbing his back after fighting through a screen.

He was replaced by Jordan Crawford and returned to the bench in the second half seeing no action although he said post game that he could have played. Thompson finished with six points on 2-of-5 shooting and two rebounds in 6:09.

The 24-year-old has not missed a game in 211 contests since entering the NBA in 2011 and should be available when the Warriors host the Phoenix Suns at 6 p.m. tomorrow night at Oracle Arena.
