Days after Game 5 of the Western Conference Finals, doctors determined that Klay Thompson had suffered a concussion when he took a knee to the head from Trevor Ariza. Initially, Thompson was simply diagnosed with an ear laceration and was allowed to return to the game, before later tests determined that he had had a concussion.
According to Yahoo’s Marc Spears, the headaches are gone and Thompson expects to be good to go for Game 1 of the Finals:
Warriors G Klay Thompson (concussion) is not having headaches, feels good and expects to play in Game 1 of Finals on Thursday, source said.

There was never much doubt that Thompson would play — even after the concussion was found, he will have had a full week to recover before the Warriors take on the Cavs in the Finals. But it’s good to hear that he’s progressing as planned and his symptoms aren’t acting up.
