Klay Thompson suffers torn ACL in Game 6 loss

Golden State Warriors all-star guard, Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL on an awkward fall after he was fouled by Raptors Danny Green on a dunk attempt. Thompson headed into the locker room but returned to shoot his free throws or else he would have not been allowed to return to the game. Before his injury, Thompson had the Warriors on his back with 30 points scored.

Fantasy Impact

This was yet another brutal loss for the Warriors from a injury standpoint. With forward Kevin Durant already out with a torn Achilles, Thompson’s injury left the Warriors with one true shooter, Steph Curry.

Klay Thompson comes up big in Game 5 win

Klay Thompson played a phenomenal game on Monday logging a team-high 42 minutes to go along with 26 points, six rebounds, and four assists. He shot 9-for-21 from the field and 53.8 percent from three (7-for-13).

Fantasy Impact

Thompson had all the right moves for the Warriors on Monday night as he came up clutch to knock down big shots whenever the Warriors needed it in the second half. His final three-pointer was a dagger inside of a minute to play, which proved to be the nail in the coffin for the Raptors. Klay's performance was all the more impressive as he's still recovering from the strained hamstring he suffered earlier in the series. Thompson looks like a man on a mission as the series returns to Oakland for game 6 on Thursday. Get your popcorn ready.

Klay Thompson shows up in Game 4 loss

In 42 minutes of action, Klay Thompson scored 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting, and went 6-of-10 from behind the arc. However, his return was not enough, as the Warriors fell 105-92. They are now down 3-1 in the NBA Finals to the Toronto Raptors.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson did not appear to be hampered by his strained hamstring, as he scored at will while playing fantastic defense on Kyle Lowry. In Game 3, Lowry put up 23 points on 50% shooting with Thompson injured; this time, with Thompson as his primary defender, he only sunk 10 points on 25% shooting. On the offensive side of the ball, Thompson displayed his arsenal of post-up moves and catch-and-shoot three's throughout the game. Despite his efforts though, none of his teammates outside of Steph Curry was able to score more than 10 points, and they came up short in an attempt to tie the series. If the Warriors want to come back from this 3-1 deficit, they better hope Kevin Durant is ready to play.

Klay Thompson will return for Game 4 of the NBA finals

After proceeding with caution, the Golden State Warriors staff will have Klay Thompson back in the lineup for Game 4. Thompson is nursing a hamstring injury that he hurt in Game 2 of the NBA finals. In his absence, the Warriors suffered a 123-109 loss to the Toronto Raptors in Game 3.

Fantasy Impact

Despite Stephen Curry pouring in 47 points, the Warriors supporting cast couldn’t play at a high enough level to pull out a win. With Thompson returning and Kevin Durant possibly making his comeback, it could be business as usual for the defending champs...or maybe not.

Klay Thompson diagnosed with hamstring strain, questionable for Game 3

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is officially listed as questionable for Game 3 of the NBA finals. An MRI showed that Thompson suffered a mild hamstring strain during the fourth quarter of Game 2.

Fantasy Impact

With Kevin Durant on the shelf and Kevin Looney suffering a fractured collarbone in Game 2, it’s essential for Thompson to be a part of the Game 3 plans. If Thompson isn’t able to go, the Warriors will rely heavily on Steph Curry and Draymond Green, all the while hoping DeMarcus Cousins can produce like he did in Game 2.
