Klay Thompson leaves Game 2 with hamstring injury
Klay Thompson left Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night with a hamstring injury.
Thompson was grabbing at his left hamstring at times during the game. Then in the fourth quarter, he took a 3-pointer and landed awkwardly following Fred VanVleet’s closeout. He limped to the Golden State Warriors’ bench and then into the locker room.

The Warriors announced later in the fourth quarter that Thompson had exited with left hamstring tightness and would not return.
Thompson had 25 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists in 32 minutes prior to his injury. He was 10-for-17 shooting with four 3-pointers.
The Warriors were getting beat up in the game. Kevon Looney left with a collarbone injury, Andre Iguodala hurt his head in the second quarter before returning, and Steph Curry was said to be playing at less than full strength.
The Toronto Raptors entered the game with a 1-0 series lead.
