Klay Thompson suggests he will not miss Game 3 despite hamstring injury
Klay Thompson does not seem to think he will miss any time despite suffering a hamstring injury in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night.
Thompson left the game in the fourth quarter after landing awkwardly following a 3-point attempt. He limped off the court and into the locker room. He was later seen limping out with ice on his hamstring as he congratulated his Golden State Warriors teammates on the 109-104 win over the Toronto Raptors.
After the game, Thompson told Yahoo’s Chris B. Haynes that he did not see himself missing Game 3.

Thompson also told Warriors head coach Steve Kerr he would be fine.
Saw Klay in the locker room, and just as he had with Steve Kerr, he told me he intends to play Game 3 despite his hamstring strain. Also added that this is not as bad as the high ankle sprain he suffered in last year’s Finals (he didn’t miss a start after that injury either).

Thompson told reporters he is planning to get an MRI. He will have two full days off to recover before Game 3 of the series at Oracle Arena on Wednesday. To give you an idea of his ability to play through injuries, Thompson did not miss any games in last year’s Finals despite suffering an ankle injury.
