As if the Warriors didn’t have enough injury issues. Klay Thompson left the game in the third quarter with a knee injury.
Thompson came down awkwardly on his left knee after being fouled on a fast break dunk attempt by Toronto’s Danny Green. The foul was clean, but Klay’s landing was anything but.
His left leg bent inward as it made contact with the floor. He immediately went down in pain.
We don’t know for sure what Klay’s issue is, but the up-close video doesn’t look great.
How did Klay Thompson come back into the game after this? His knee looks like it’s dislocated on this play pic.twitter.com/yC7hqwmGNk

Klay was headed to the locker room, but returned and made both free throws. He had to shoot them, otherwise he wouldn’t have been eligible to return to the game.
However, he immediately went to the locker room after the foul shots. He has yet to return, and we’re still waiting on word of his status.
