Update #1, 1:35 am: Klay Thompson has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson will not return to Game 6 after injuring his knee, the team's public relations department has announced. Danny Green went up to contest a shot and Thompson was thrown off balance on his way down before his knee twisted awkwardly.

Klay showed a lot of grit after suffering the injury by remaining in the game to shoot two free-throws, invoking Kobe Bryant who sank both free-throws immediately after tearing his Achilles tendon.

He was seen jogging in the hallways of Oracle Arena on his way to the Warriors' dressing room but was eventually ruled out.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers and Warriors director of sports medicine and performance Rick Celebrini walked behind Thompson as he made his way back to the locker room, much like they did with Durant on Monday night.

The injury news is devastating and likely keeps Thompson out for most, if not all of next season, according to The Athletic's Anthony Slater.

"Obviously he's a warrior", Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins said.
