Klay Thompson exits Game 6 after scary-looking injury, returns right after

Klay Thompson was forced to exit Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals after suffering an apparent leg injury on a hard foul from Danny Green, but came out of the tunnel to attempt his two free throws before exiting again.

With two minutes left in the third quarter, Thompson was driving for an open dunk attempt but was fouled from behind by Green.

The shooting guard immediately grabbed his left knee and hobbled into the locker room, but returned not long after to attempt his two free throws, making both.

After hitting the free throws, Thompson left the game and was seen jogging into the locker room during the final minutes of the period.
