When the Warriors visited the Houston Rockets this past Saturday, they were able to get the win. Unfortunately, Klay Thompson injured his right hand in the process. Given he shoots right handed, this kept him from playing against the Suns the following day, a game in which they lost.
Thompson was listed as questionable this morning, but according to Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors will have both Splash Brothers against the Spurs:
Steve Kerr said shooting guard Klay Thompson (strained right hand) will play tonight vs. San Antonio.

This is great news for the Dubs, they are simply not the same without him in the line-up. Thompson has been on a tear to start the season, but foul trouble hurt him against the Rockets. It will be interesting to see how he shoots early on in the game and if he will be confident driving to the basket.
The Spurs who have famously gained a reputation for resting their players these last few years, might be without with Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobli. This is their second game of a back-to-back. They beat the Clippers in a whacky finish last night.
