cooperate with the investigation and mcdonald claimed her injuries were the result of restraining her after she attacked him. mcdonald's ex says she was motivated to file the restraining order because she wants to raise their son in a "safe consistent healthy environment without abuse." mcdonald will be back in court june 23 to face those allegations. in san jose, devin fehely, kpix5. tonight, klay can play. six days after suffering a concussion from this knee to the head, golden state warriors guard klay thompson got the green light to take to the court in game one of the nba finals this thursday. cate caugurian shows us there is already plenty of action going on at oracle tonight. >> reporter: oracle arena is getting all gussied up for game one of the finals. fresh stickers make it official. game one is on our home turf. most of us will experience it from home or at a sports bar
