Klay Thompson heads to locker room after J.R. Smith slides into his knee
OAKLAND — This is ugly.
Cleveland’s J.R. Smith was closing out on Klay Thompson midway through the first quarter in Game 1, slips on a wet spot on the floor, and took out Thompson’s knee in an ugly way.
Thompson tried to walk it off, but couldn’t then limped back to the dressing room.
That’s not going to keep Thompson out of the game, however.
Klay Thompson (left lateral leg contusion) is being re-taped. Hopeful to return to tonight's game.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) June 1, 2018
He was back out in the second quarter and seemed to be moving fairly well.
