Klay Thompson left Game 5 of the NBA Finals early last night after taking a knee directly to the head from Houston's Trevor Ariza.

Erik Malinowski announced via Twitter that the Warriors said that Thompson was suffering from concussion - like symptoms after clinching their ticket to the NBA Finals.

His father, Mycheal Thompson, told Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports that "he just needs a good night's sleep. Threw up and says he feels a lot better." But then Thompson later joined ESPN radio's Mike & Mike, saying that Klay was unable to drive home.

He returned later on in the game but eventually left when there was bleeding in his ear.

Thompson has had the best season of his career, playing a major part in Golden State's miraculous season.

He served as the lethal second option to Steph Curry throughout the season. Now the Warriors are set to face LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2015 NBA Finals.

Going up against such a tough Cleveland team, it's needless to say, Klay's absence will be greatly missed if forced to sit out. However, granted the Warriors finish their season with an NBA championship, Thompson will be part of, arguably, one of the greatest NBA teams of all-time.
