Thompson was hurt in the closing minutes of the third quarter against the Toronto Raptors on Thursday, landing awkwardly when fouled by Danny Green in the process of attempting to dunk.

However, the Raptors went on to win 114-110 and clinch a 4-2 series triumph, with Golden State later confirming a torn anterior cruciate ligament in Thompson's left knee following an MRI scan.
