5:43 pm
5:44 pm
5:45 pm
>> the warriors are getting ready for saturday's game 3 western conference semifinals. but there is a lot of sort of drama associated with this one. they're not going to have gary payton the second there. yeah, probably second best defender on the team. he was injured during game 2. the last game against the grizzlies. that's right. and payton was hurt after brooks was active in the head, causing him to land squarely on his arm. >> brooks was kicked out of the game. and today the nba suspended him for the next game. kron. 4 sports reporter kate rooney joins us now. >> to explain. you want to see a fan base that has some animosity towards a player when brooks eventually play-in game 4 chase is going to let him have it. i would think. yeah, you said it. we're talking off camera. they're going to be a lot of handed down to the sky. a lot of people. >> not happy with the way that plane went down. they were expecting the suspension, but some questioning whether it's even long enough is the
5:46 pm
punishment that was handed down. but nba today, it's brooks will miss one game. that's this upcoming game 3 on saturday. now this comes after he was ejected for a flagrant 2 foul, which is defined as unnecessary and excessive contact against an opponent that comes with an immediate ejection from the game. and in this case, further review by the league determined it wasn't worthy of a suspension as well. we also learn more about the extent of gp two's injury today. in addition to the fracture, we already knew about his dealing with ligament and muscle damage. the set to be reevaluated in 2 weeks when steve kerr was asked about the suspension today, he said the only thing left for the warriors to do is focus on their preparation for game 3. >> doesn't matter. i mean, carries out there is out for the next, you know, for see future weeks. that's the only thing that matters to us. you don't we're doing, you play hard. for every loose ball
5:47 pm
battle for every compete, every possession. you know, don't risk a guy's career if he's a ahead of the planned transition. that's our mantra. >> so even though steve kerr said a couple days ago, the words will not be retaliating. clearly, they are extremely unhappy with the situation. i did an unofficial poll of warriors fans on twitter. more than 70% of them said the suspension not long enough. game 3 is on saturday at 5.30, at t center. so, yeah, there's going to be a lot of animosity in this game. and it really is just heartbreaking for gary payton. the second he'd been playing so well. he's been in the league for 6 years and was really having kind of a breakout season was a huge part of the warriors defense, especially. so they're really trying to figure out how they're going to stop the grizzlies without him. he was a dirty move. if you ask me hard to watch and gp 2 is like the one guy who can really guard. >> john moran, who's kind of on guard exactly so. now it's kind of have to be a team effort. so big, big loss for the dup's for sure. alright, thanks, kate. the justice

5:50 pm
customers in oklahoma and texas did not have electricity today. no serious injuries have been reported from the storms, but they are causing a lot of damage. >> it's like 2 and a half months now that we've seen it feels like consistent tornadoes. yeah, every week in that part of the country, it's it's horrible. and now we're headed really toward the peak, which is going to be this next week for tornado season. so here we go. things get a little more aggressive out there tonight. we see another round of some very strong storms developing that cold air coming right off the rockies. got that moisture coming up in the south and look at the storms in between that line there from houston stretching all the way into memphis and on the long that line, numerous reports of tornadoes again, a couple tornadoes in the eastern that and texas and continuing reports of large hail all along this line. so it's not always the tornadoes that cause a lot of damage. a lot of damage actually caused to the head by hail on some of the farmland out there as well on the farm animals, too. but things quieter out west. we do have a storm system rolling in
5:51 pm
that is going to bring with it a chance. some light showers. i think overnight tonight in parts of the north and again, by tomorrow evening as well. you see right here. here's a lower forecast as we get in toward the next 24 hours by tomorrow morning. if there's a chance of a couple light sprinkles north of the golden gate bridge, maybe some drizzle along the coastline, then kind of another round 2 as we head in toward tomorrow evening. so a kind of a double barrel system coming on through behind that. you've got plans for moms. they were. here you go. you've got a very cold inside slider rolling in. and that could bring the snow level. get this down around 3,000 feet. and that means our local mountains of we do get much in the way of precipitation at all. we could be talking about some snow across places like mount diablo. so pretty unusual for this time of year to get a cold system dropping in like this, but not unheard of them. that's going to stick around through monday and tuesday with some temperatures running a good 10, maybe 15 degrees below the average. after that, i don't see a big ridge building in either something staying open. so plans for mother's day will take mom out get her jacket and make sure something warm to drink. we have plenty of clouds rolling across our skies. temperatures
5:52 pm
only in the 50's and the 60's and there is a slight chance we could be talking about a couple of scattered showers out there right now. we've got a lot of clouds moving in overhead. the seabreeze have been blowing and well, the temperatures are staying down. the numbers today are really coming way down from the past couple of days. and tomorrow we're going to see a lot of clouds, a slight chance, some sprinkles to the north, mostly sunny on saturday. then that next storm system drops in on mother's day to bring a slight chance of showers continuing unsettled in the monday. thanks alerts. up next, looking for a fun way to celebrate cinco de mayo. how you can give back to the bay area arts while enjoying the work of one of mex
