Thompson apparently injured himself after landing awkwardly after a 3-point shot as Toronto Raptors wing Danny Green was running at him. It seemed as though he tried to walk it off for a bit before finally signaling to his teammates that he could no longer get up and down the court.

With Kevin Durant already out and DeMarcus Cousins just returning this series after an extended postseason absence, the Warriors’ roster is getting increasingly thin, which puts even more pressure on the Strength In Numbers philosophy against a gritty Toronto Raptors team.
Despite the injuries, the Warriors were able to build and hang on to a lead in the second half. Nevertheless, it will certainly be something to pay attention to with Durant’s status still in doubt.
