Warriors guard Klay Thompson has been ruled out of Tuesday night’s game against the Celtics with right knee soreness.
Thompson banged his knee hard on the floor during Thursday’s loss to Orlando, but he didn’t start feeling pain until he awoke Friday morning. Thompson, whose MRI came back clean, is set to miss his second straight game with the injury. His absence Tuesday should free up more opportunity for Damion Lee, Quinn Cook, Alfonzo McKinnie, Shaun Livingston and Andre iguodala.
Thompson sat out of the Warriors’ victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night, missing just his second game of the season.
