After Golden State Warriors superstar Klay Thompson left Oracle Arena on crutches Thursday night, what happened?
Where did the Warriors guard undergo the MRI on his left knee?
Did he see the end of the game?
What was he thinking about?
Thompson’s brother, Mychel, drove him to an imaging center in Berkeley. His parents followed in a separate car. The Warriors were keeping it close deep into the fourth quarter.
With just a few minutes remaining in the game, Thompson was wheeled into the MRI machine. The game ended while he was in there.
“What happened?” Thompson asked as soon as he finished. “Did we win?”
It wasn’t until he learned that the Warriors had lost that he began to consider what this injury might mean to his career.
“Do you think this could affect my free agency?” he asked.
Terrible way to end your season.

The two-time All-NBA sharp shooter will have surgery on that left knee, and the long road to recovery will begin.
He’ll be fine, the Warriors are already talking about offering him a max deal.
