Thompson was attempting to score a fast-break layup in the third quarter during Game Six when he was fouled from behind. The 29-year-old landed awkwardly and fell to the court, grabbing his knee.
Thompson, a key part of the team's championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018, was the hottest player on the court on Thursday before his injury. He had to be helped off the court and was later seen on crutches. Thompson's injury came one game after his team mate Kevin Durant suffered an Achilles tear, which is expected to keep him sidelined for all of next season.
