OAKLAND – Four days after being told he'd be out of action for a week, Warriors forward Brandon Rush was upgraded to probable for the season opener Wednesday night at Sacramento.
The announcement by the Warriors on Sunday means Rush, who did not play in the preseason finale Friday night, almost certainly will be available against the Kings.
Rush was experiencing discomfort at the base of his spine, described as "sacral stress reaction."
He was to be reevaluated early this week, but the timetable was moved up as symptoms diminished.
He was a limited participant in practice on Sunday.
Guard Shaun Livingston, who has yet to play as he recovers from surgery on his right big toe, also took the floor in a limited capacity.
He will not play in the opener, coach Steve Kerr said, adding that no timetable has been set for his return.
