The Golden State Warriors faced the Orlando Magic on Saturday night, with the team's injury woes continuing as Klay Thompson was ruled out due to left knee soreness.

This news was particularly concerning given that Thompson had suffered a torn ACL in his left knee in 2019.

However, Warriors coach Steve Kerr stated that the decision to sit Thompson was precautionary and he doesn't expect the issue to be long-term.

Prior to this game, Thompson had been on a hot streak, scoring over 30 points in each of his previous three games, including a 54-point performance against the Atlanta Hawks.

In the current season, Thompson is averaging 20.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, while shooting 38% from beyond the arc.

The Warriors will be keeping an eye on Thompson's status moving forward. On a positive note, the team's other star guard, Steph Curry, is expected to return to game action next week after being out with a shoulder injury.

Curry's return will be a boost for the Warriors, who have managed to stay in the Western Conference playoff race despite his absence.
