Klay Thompson ‘good to go’ for Game 2 against Grizzlies

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Klay Thompson is expected to play in Game 2 of the Western Conference semifinals on Tuesday night after being listed as probable on the Warriors’ injury report a day earlier.

Thompson, 32, banged his right knee during the Warriors’ Game 1 win on Sunday, though the Golden State star couldn’t determine exactly when the injury occurred. There was a moment in the second half when Thompson was slow to get up and appeared to have clutched his right knee in pain, though he didn’t come out of the game at that point.

Thompson said the pain in his knee flared up Monday, though he now “feels great.” He was seen wearing a compression sleeve on his right leg at shooting practice in Memphis on Tuesday morning, but he appeared to be going through his normal shooting routine without a problem.

“He’s ready to go,” coach Steve Kerr said after shooting practice.
