mark is here now with sports to give a health update on some of the warriors. >> it pretty much as a medical update officially received by the team. all in all, pretty happy that they have nine days before they start the final. back on the court today, kevin durant. it doesn't look like he will be ready for the first couple of games. they are happy with the progress, but he has not game ready and hasn't been cleared for that activity. the news is a little better for demarcus cousins. cousins injured his quad muscle in his left leg on april 13. they are more confident he will be able to return. this is video from today's practice session. if you look closely, it doesn't look like he is moving real well, but considering what he has come back from, the torn achilles in his second playoff
6:54 pm
game. you have to give him credit for getting back this fast. >> it has been a wild season. i feel that is what adversity does, it builds you up to make you stronger for the next moment. that was one of my darkest moments dealing with the achilles. i feel like i am in a stronger mental capacity when it came to dealing with this one. i'm happy to be in this moment. if i get the opportunity to play i will take full advantage of it and try to help win a championship. >> there was some other news. by the way, andre iguodala looks like he will be ready to go. steph curry name to the all nba first team and kevin durant the second team. oddly enough, klay thompson who has been playing spectacularly throughout his entire career, did not make the all nba team, 12 or three and is not happy at all about that. he has played exceptional defense, average 21 points per game during the regular season. i don't know what more you could ask. i tell you this, klay thompson

also is going to lose some money. not making the first, second or third team, he will not be eligible for a supermax contract this year, five years, $221 million. instead he will max out at $191 million. our cameras caught him spontaneously as he found out he was left off the teams. >> i mean that is cool and all, but when you go to five straight finals. i respect those guys. when you go five straight, it takes more than a couple nba guys. they are all in the team, but whatever. i would rather win a championship then be 13 all nba, so it is all good. >> there you go, team guy. long days journey into night for the san francisco giants. it started at 12:45 ended the 13 innings later, after 5:00.
6:56 pm
another frustrating loss. despite the cuteness out there. tyler austin, a right-handed power hitter. 4-2 lead over the braves going into the 8th inning. this is the name to remember. austin riley, this kid has been up for nine big league games from the minors. that was his fifth home run already. a two-run shot to tie this. here he is again. austin riley, shot to right with two outs. a laser that brings somewhat turned out to be the 5-4 deciding run. 13 innings, atlanta takes it from the giants this week. meantime, it will be a tumultuous off-season for the san jose sharks. they have lots of free agents. where to begin? at the top of the list, that guy. joe thornton. what a hall of fame career he has put together. but he has not completely
6:57 pm
decided at the age of 39 with 21 seasons under his belt, whether he will come back and try to play again. i tell you this, it sounds like if he does, he is a shark in his heart. >> i am a shark. i am a shark. you know, there is one team this year. i haven't made any decision. i feel like i can still play, for sure, but i haven't made any decision. >> he can have all the time he needs to make whatever decision is right for him. we love him. >> it will be an interesting off-season for the sharks. check this out. this is women's high school softball in delaware. never will you see a better catch than this young lady. taylor gillis, robbing a home run. that is worthy of big league baseball, mlb. highlight of the night, can't watch it enough. there you go, taylor gillis. that is the sporting life at

and here's another interesting weather fact. another? great! changes in jet streams can affect the speed at which the earth rotates on its axis, so bad weather can actually make the day longer. well, there must be a hell of a storm somewhere. joke if you must, but you're going to miss these moments. with leonard home in a few days, this was your last time driving me to the grocery store. you know, i will miss this. i'll tell you what, if my apples are mealy, we'll hit the produce section for one last crazy blowout. heck, you can even push the cart. please don't take my looking forward to leonard's return as criticism of the job you've been doing in his absence. i won't. that criticism will come later in your report card. yeah, i didn't stay for the detention,
