Look: Klay Thompson suffers nasty finger injury
Klay Thompson suffered a nasty finger injury during the Golden State Warriors’ game against the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night.
Thompson jammed his left hand on a push-off and ended up with his left ring finger being dislocated around the knuckle.

Thompson exited the game midway through the first quarter. He was examined by a trainer and later returned in the second quarter, with the team saying he had suffered a sprain.
The Warriors sharpshooter was nonchalant about the injury, acting like it was nothing.
DeMarcus Cousins and Shaun Livingston are set to miss the team’s game on Wednesday at Portland, so it’s entirely possible that Thompson joins them to rest and heal.
