Klay Thompson limped to the Golden State locker room in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s NBA Finals Game 2 with an apparent leg injury.
The Warriors guard tried to get teammates to take a foul at the Toronto end in order to stop the game to allow time for a sub. He was later ruled out for the remainder of the game with left hamstring tightness.
Klay Thompson (left hamstring tightness) will not return to tonight’s game.

No foul was committed, and Serge Ibaka made an open 3-pointer —the Raptors essentially had a 5-on-4 advantage— to get Toronto within seven. Postgame, Warriors coach Steve Kerr addressed the injury, though Thompson’s status remains uncertain. “Klay said he’ll be fine, but Klay could be half-dead and he’d say he’s fine,” Kerr said.
“We’ll see. He pulled his hamstring. He thinks it’s minor, but I don’t know what that means. Sorry. That’s all I got.”
