Klay Thompson exits Game 2 limping, Looney suffers sprained collarbone [report]


The Warriors injury woes continue. In the fourth quarter, after scoring an efficient 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting (4-of-6 from 3-pt), Klay Thompson exited Game 2 of the NBA Finals with 7:59 remaining in the quarter with a severe limp and headed in to the Warriors’ locker room.

While Thompson exited with 7:59 left in the quarter, it looked like the injury flared up about two minutes earlier on a shot attempt:

According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, Thompson is suffering, “hamstring tightness.”

Kevon Looney also exited Game 2 after suffering what was initially termed a chest contusion. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Looney suffered what was termed a “sprained collar bone,” ruling him out for the remainder of the game.

The Warriors were able to get Andre Iguodala back for tonight’s game after what was feared to be a calf injury towards the end of Game 1, and DeMarcus Cousins started tonight’s game after recovering from a quad tear he suffered in the first round of the playoffs, but they are still waiting on Kevin Durant to return from a calf injury that he suffered in the Conference Semifinals against the Houston Rockets.
