The Golden State Warriors will be sweating on the health of Klay Thompson, who is likely questionable for Game 3 after an MRI confirmed a hamstring strain, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania

Thompson left Game 2 with hamstring tightness after landing awkwardly as he attempted a three-pointer in the fourth qaurter, clutching his left leg before heading to the locker room.

The 29-year-old finished with a team-high 25 points, five rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes as the Golden State leveled the series at 1-1 with a 109-104 win over the Toronto Raptors.

Coach Steve Kerr was confident Thompson, who has played 120-straight playoff games would be good to go, with the shooting guard optimistic about his chances of returning for Game 3.

"Klay said he'll be fine," Kerr said. "But Klay could be half dead and he'd say he's fine. We'll see. He pulled his hamstring."

Thompson is averaging 19.5 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 2.4 assists on 44 percent shooting from the floor and 41.1 percent from the three-point line in 18 playoff games this season.

The Warriors are currently still without Kevin Durant who remains sidelined with a calf injury, while Kevon Looney has been ruled out indefinitely after suffering a collarbone injury in Game 2.
