Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson did not play in Sunday’s game against the Utah Jazz due to left knee soreness. The Warriors won, 94-92, in a game where defense often came first.
Jordan Poole scored 20 points on Sunday night and started in place of Thompson, shooting 7-for-13 overall.
ESPN reported earlier Sunday that Thompson had experienced soreness on his surgically repaired left knee and is considered day-to-day for Golden State.
