Klay goes down with knee injury, out for game

Klay goes down with knee injury, out for game

Thompson suffered the injury in the third quarter on a breakaway.

Thompson was helped off the court, then returned briefly to shoot a pair of free throws before limping back off. Doris Burke reported he's out for the game.


Klay Thompson #11 of the Golden State Warriors reacts after hurting his leg against the Toronto Raptors in the second half during Game Six of the 2019 NBA Finals at ORACLE Arena on June 13, 2019 in Oakland, California. The idea is what happened to Kevin Durant simply can't happen again. This makes for a vastly uncertain future for Thompson, who's eligible to become a free agent this summer. The All-Star shooting guard top-scored for both teams with 30 points on 8-of-12 shooting from the field and 4-of-6 from 3-point distance, until tragedy struck. So instead, he came back out onto the floor to a huge ovation and nailed both shots from the charity stripe. But, because he had been awarded two free throws he couldn't go just yet.

The injury news is devastating and likely keeps Thompson out for most, if not all of next season, according to The Athletic's Anthony Slater.
