And now we don't know when we'll next see him on a basketball court because according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Thompson suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss a significant amount of time next season.

In Game 5, Kevin Durant tore his right Achilles, and in Game 6, Klay Thompson went down in the third quarter on a dunk attempt with what looked to be a serious knee injury.

You can never question Klay Thompson's grit.

Moments after he was injured, Thompson got up to his feet and was taken toward the locker room with the help of Warriors big men Jonas Jerebko and Jordan Bell on either side of him.

The injury news on Klay Thompson could not be worse. After having witnessed Kevin Durant go down for the season with a ruptured Achilles in Game 5, fans and fellow National Basketball Association players feared the worst as Thompson went back to the locker room.

Thompson made both free throws after his brief return and again left the game at the next stoppage in play. He returned and was a stalwart for the beleaguered Warriors group throughout the series.
