Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson is dealing with a high left ankle sprain, but is expecting to play in Sunday’s Game 2 of the NBA Finals.
Thompson suffered the injury in the first quarter of the Warriors’ 124-114 Game 1 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, but returned and played 45 minutes. Thompson finished with 24 points on 8-for-16 shooting.
At Saturday’s media availability, Thompson said the ankle was “stiff” but he was “optimistic for tomorrow.”
"I'm optimistic about tomorrow."
