Wednesday December 9th, 2015

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson left Tuesday’s 131–123 win over the Indiana Pacers with a sprained right ankle and did not return.

Thompson made 10-of-16 three-point attempts and totaled 39 points, seven rebounds and six assists before leaving in the fourth quarter. He was two off tying the NBA record for threes in a game at 12.

While attempting to collect his eighth rebound of the night, the 25-year-old landed awkwardly on his right ankle and immediately hopped toward the sideline.

After the game, Thompson told reporters that X-rays came back negative on his ankle.

The Warriors continued their record-setting start to the season, picking up their 23rd win in as many games. They’re already without starting forward Harrison Barnes due to a sprained ankle.
