Thompson sprains ankle late in Warriors' win

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson suffered a sprained right ankle in Tuesday night’s 131-123 win over the Indiana Pacers.

He was walking under his own power after the game with a bit of a limp, and the team said X-rays were negative. Interim coach Luke Walton said the team would know more in the morning after further evaluation.

Thompson said he rolled the ankle a bit.

“It’s probably going to be sore for a couple days,” Thompson said, “but I should be back in no time.”

He told ESPN’s Marc Stein that he hoped to be able to play Friday in Boston or Saturday in Milwaukee.

“I’ll be all right,” Thompson said. “I’ve rolled an ankle before.”

Thompson scored a season-high 39 points and Stephen Curry added 29 points, seven rebounds and 10 assists in the win, which pushed the Warriors to 23-0.
