modeled literally on his left but also made workable. >> and then i modeled that whole thing online and 3-d print td and i assembled the pieces afterward. >> reporter: so here's jason actually holding a baseball, his new hand grabbed and picked up. a nice feeling. >> i thought the arm was really cool, and i was really proud of robbie. >> reporter: and all it took was 13 years of waiting for a smart kid called robbie to grow up some and to figure it out. john donvan, abc news. >> so special. all right, shifting gears to the weather now. if you liked seeing the sun, you'd better wait because rain is on the way and it's going to stay here, spencer. >> you're right about that, dion. he with might see some flashes of sun tomorrow but it will be a mainly cloudy day. here's live doppler 7. we go right into the approaching storm. the storm impact scale indicates this one ranks 1 on the storm scale. a storm of light intensity coming in tomorrow and intensifying overnight a bit into tuesday, producing mainly scattered showers tomorrow steadier rain overnight. windy by tomorrow evening. and here we go. forecasts starting tomorrow morning. it will be a dry morning commute but we'll see showers expanding and becoming more widespread by
11:48 pm
afternoon. the evening commute tomorrow might be a little bit wet, but it's going to get even wetter on tuesday. look at this wave of steady rain coming in late tomorrow night continuing into tuesday morning. that'll k the picture greeting commuters tuesday morning. it will continue through much of the day into the afternoon and it'll probably be a wet commute in the evening as well. then we go into wednesday, when the next storm, a stronger, colder, windier storm comes in. that continues into thursday. finally falls apart on friday. and the accuweather seven-day forecast shows you what you've already seen. it's going to be a week of wet weather. >> oh, boy. back to sunday again. next sunday. >> it will be the next dry day we get. >> spencer, thanks. larry in for shu tonight. >> yes. the storm that's brewing with the warriors is one that's filled with injuries unfortunately. kevin durant on the mindset with 15 games left and that 1 seed kind of slipping away. plus, i think everybody would say golf is more fun when tiger woods is in contention on a

welcome back. we showed you the warriors losing to the timberwolves earlier in the show. with steph curry and a whole bunch of reserves hurt. the warriors really have to rely heavily now on kevin durant, who went for 39 today. and k.d. stopped to talk with abc 7's mike shumann in minneapolis after the game. >> all right, k.d. tough loss here. tough road trip. three games in four nights. but you've got to give minnesota some credit tonight. >> they made shots tonight. i thought they did a great job. making it tough on them all night. they relied on karl townes who's been playing great all year. draymond did a great job on him but sometimes the ball goes in the basket. you've got to give them credit. >> how tough has it been with the five players out with injuries including steph curry for you guys? do you feel like you've got to carry more of a load? >> yeah, most definitely. being one of the guys that can create off the dribble it's a little different not having
11:53 pm
steph out there. but you know, the great thing about this game is that you've got to figure stuff out. the ball just didn't go in the rim. >> in some ways it might be better as we go to the playoffs. some guys are getting some minutes they normally don't to get confidence in their game but at the same time don't want to wear out the starters. >> it is what it is. this is our job. this is what we're expected to do every night. whatever duty calls, guys have to come in and play extra minutes, you've just got to do it. we're not complaining. nobody's in that locker room, you know, screaming for guys to get back. we want those guys to be healthy and 100% healthy when they come back, and we'll figure it out in the meantime. >> are you guys still thinking about the 1 seed? how do you approach it? >> we just want to play great ball. obviously, houston's been playing great. we haven't seen them losing for a while. with us we're a little banged up and we lost a couple in a row, and we won't wait for our guys to get back but more importantly we want to play good basketball, good solid basketball on both ends of the floor, take care of offense, defense, turnovers, and rebounding and we'll be fine. and when that time comes we'll
11:54 pm
be ready. >> you've been carrying the load so much you've got a little ice on your shoulder. are you okay? >> i shot too much tonight. >> k.d. looking forward to getting back to the bay area. back to you guys. >> thank you, shu. selection sunday turned into disappointment sunday for st. mary's. left on the outside looking in at the ncaa field of 68. the gaels went 28-5. they were among the first four out. they just missed out. strength of schedule for randy bennett was obviously the key. so now st. mary's and stanford are in the n.i.t. they will host games this upcoming week. virginia, xavier, villanova and kansas are the 1 seeds. the pac-12 got three teams, in arizona, ucla and usc was snubbed. tiger woods last won a golf tournament in 2013 but he was in contention down to the final hole today at the valspar championship in florida. paul casey, another guy who hadn't won in eternity, goes back to 2009.
11:55 pm
69-65 in the clubhouse tied for the lead at 10 under. tiger two shots back on 17. we're showing you this long putt and you know why right now because it's going in from about 50 feet. 9 under par. tiger one shot off the lead. meanwhile, patrick reid, the co-leader on 18, needed a two-putt to force a playoff. and this is your nightmare here. this is coming right back down the hill. and he would bogey the hole. so tiger needs another long birdie on 18. this would force a playoff year. and just wide right. paul casey wins the valspar championship. a cool 1.2 million bucks. but of course tiger is almost always the story. >> i was close. i had a chance today. unfortunately, i just didn't quite feel as sharp as i needed to with my irons. i was playing a little conservative because of it. made a nice putt at 17, gave myself a chance going to 18. the only thing you can do is leave it short, and unfortunately didn't get it
