Klay Thompson injury: Warriors star suffers devastating blow, will NOT return for Game 6

0

KLAY THOMPSON went down clutching his left knee after being fouled on a dunk attempt and had to be helped back to the locker room, but made a sensational return to the court, only to be ruled out for the remainder of Game 6 later on.

After losing Kevin Durant to injury and with Kevon Looney playing with a clear issue, the last thing the Warriors needed in Game 6 was more injury concern.

But that’s exactly what happened late in the third quarter with Thompson falling awkwardly on his left leg and writhing in pain on the floor.

The 29-year-old went up for a dunk, only to be fouled hard by Danny Green.

Thompson then came down hard on his left leg and immediately felt pain in his left knee, clutching his leg and his team-mates reactions said it all.

Steph Curry could be seen slamming the ball on the court as if to say ‘what next’.

The two-time MVP sat on the court as Thompson had to be helped back to the locker room.

The Oakland crowd were stunned into silence as they saw their star catch-and-shooter head off the court

But they immediately erupted into the loudest cheer of the night as Thompson soon made his way back to the court.

As the commentary team pointed out, Thompson in fact had to return to take the free-throws or he wouldn’t be allowed to return to the game for the rest of the night.

He came back and took both free-throws and looked as though he wanted to continue.

But Steve Kerr got one of his players to foul, forcing Thompson to head back to the locker room to receive treatment.

It was clear Thompson was eager to get back out on the court to help out his team, and ESPN’s Doris Burke was reporting that he didn’t feel a pop in his knee.

However, in a devastating twist, the Warriors announced the three-point specialist would not be returning for the rest of the game.
