"Klay said he'll be fine," coach Steve Kerr told reporters post-game. "But Klay could be half dead and he'd say he's fine. We'll see. He pulled his hamstring."
The 29-year-old later told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes that the injury was not that serious: "I don't see myself missing Game 3," Thompson said.
