Klay Thompson exits Warriors’ Game 2 win vs. Raptors with leg injury

TORONTO — Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson limped off the court early in the fourth quarter Sunday with an apparent leg injury.

Doris Burke, working the sideline for ESPN and ABC, reported during the telecast that Thompson had suffered a “hamstring issue’’ and would not return to action. The Warriors later confirmed that, ruling Thompson out with "left hamstring tightness." 

Warriors coach Steve Kerr called the injury a minor hamstring pull postgame. 

"I don't know what that means going forward," Kerr added. 

At the time Thompson left the game, he led the Warriors in scoring with 25 points and the Warriors led 95-88. The Warriors held on to win 109-104. 

The moment put a serious damper on Golden State’s frenzied comeback Sunday night.  Down by 12 points in the second quarter, the Warriors opened the second half with an 18-0 run and and led by as many as 13 points before Toronto chipped away at the deficit.

The loss of Thompson would put added pressure on the Warriors, who have been without Kevin Durant since the All-Star forward suffered a strained right calf in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals.
