Golden State Warriors All-Star guard Klay Thompson is dealing with a high left ankle sprain, according to Yahoo! Sports' Shams Charania.

Thompson sustained the injury in the first quarter of Game 1 after an incidental collision with Cavs guard J.R. Smith.

After heading to the locker room for evaluation, the injury was reported as a left lateral leg contusion. He returned to the game after being re-taped.

In the Warriors 124-114 overtime win in Game 1, Thompson finished with 24 points on 8-for-16 shooting. Thompson told reporters during Saturday's media availability that he is optimistic he will be able to play in Game 2.

As 2015 Finals MVP Andre Iguodala is doubtful for Game 2, Golden State is at risk of losing another starter to injury. Thompson's official status for Game 2 is questionable.

The Warriors host the Cleveland in Game 2 of the NBA Finals on Sunday, June 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
