Golden State Warriors All-Star Klay Thompson doesn’t expect to miss any time after suffering fourth quarter hamstring injury in Game Two.
It was a moment that had Golden State fans worried.
In Game 2 of the NBA Finals, Klay Thompson stepped up for his team. The 6’7 guard scored 25 points in the first half, carrying the Warriors as they sought to even the series with the Toronto Raptors. But with a little over ten minutes left in the fourth quarter, Thompson landed awkwardly while shooting a three-pointer.
Thompson is expected to undergo an MRI on Monday, but neither the player nor the organization believe the injury is serious. “I don’t see myself missing Game 3,” Thompson said to Yahoo Sports. “I’ll be fine.”
Thompson will receive around-the-clock treatment leading up to Game 3 against the Raptors at Oracle Arena in Oakland, California. The Warriors managed to even the series with a 109-104 win over the Raptors in Toronto on Sunday night thanks in part to an 18-0 run in the third quarter.
“That was a good win for us,” Thompson said.
Kevin Durant could return from his calf injury for Game Three, but it’s more likely that he will see his first action in Game Four. The Warriors are suffering through other injuries as well, with Kevin Looney dealing with a collar bone injury in Game Two and Andre Iguodala still nursing a minor hamstring injury. Looney will undergo an MRI and CT scan on Monday.
The Warriors are playing in their fifth-straight NBA Finals and are looking to win their third straight NBA title. They will return to the court for Game Three on Wednesday night, searching for their second win of the series.
