Thompson sprains ankle, is day-to-day

Kings forward Jason Thompson talks to reporters following the Kings' 103-102 loss to the Utah Jazz at Power Balance Pavilion.

Kings forward Jason Thompson has a sprained left ankle and is day-to-day, the team announced.

Thompson came up limping after Al Jefferson's game-winning shot with 0.9 seconds left in the Utah Jazz's 103-102 win over the Kings and had to be helped to the locker room.

Thompson said he had tweaked the ankle earlier in the game and stepped awkwardly on the final play. He was walking on his own in the locker room.

"I think it should be good," he said. "It kind of hurts a little bit when I walk on it but it's not to the point where I need crutches or anything like that."

Before the injury Thompson recorded his fifth consecutive double-double, matching his career-high, with 19 points and 15 rebounds against the Jazz.

The Kings next play Saturday night at Golden State.

"It doesn't feel great," Thompson said of the ankle, "but with some treatment and stuff like that I'll be ready against Golden State."
