Toward the end of the third quarter of Thursday night's Game 6 at Oakland, Klay Thompson landed awkwardly after he was fouled on a breakaway layup by Danny Green, and appeared to badly mess up his left knee. Klay has already missed this game with an injured left hamstring; the Warriors are already playing without Kevin Durant; Kevon Looney is playing with a broken chest cartilage; DeMarcus Cousins is hobbling around on a recovering quadriceps. It's a bad scene.
Klay was down on the court for a minute and appeared to be in a lot of pain. He was disqualified from the remainder of the game. Needless to say, that would be a horrible loss for the warriors. Thompson of this fact, whereupon Klay turned around and hobbled back to the floor, where he was greeted by a huge roar from the home crowd.
Klay buried the free throws, and the Warriors used to intentionally foul play so that Klay could have been without any penalty. Klay was able to jog back to the Warriors loose room, but Doris Burke reported in the fourth quarter that despite his best efforts, Klay would not be able to return to the floor. He had 30 points on just 12 shots and what arguably the best player on the floor prior to his injury. This is getting ridiculous.
