Klay Thompson exited Tuesday night’s game between the Golden State Warriors and Utah Jazz with what appeared to be a finger dislocation.

The Warriors sharpshooter came into contact with Donovan Mitchell, and immediately left the game and headed straight to the locker room. He wasn’t showing much visible pain, but cameras caught the ring finger on his non-shooting (left) hand bent at a very funny angle.

Only time will tell the severity of the issue. Dislocated fingers can often be popped back into place in time for the player to return to the game. Other times they cause damage while dislocating, and can cause someone to be sidelined for a few weeks.

We’ll have to wait and see, but in the meantime, the timing is good with the Warriors only having one game remaining before the All-Star break. In all likelihood, Thompson will miss that game, meaning the Warriors will be severely short-handed against the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday.

We’ll keep you updated if any news comes out regarding Thompson’s injury.
