Forward Jason Thompson addresses the media following the Kings' loss to the San Antonio Spurs at Power Balance Pavilion.
Kings forward Jason Thompson said Wednesday night his left ankle is not completely back to normal despite his return to the Kings' lineup in their 117-112 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.
Thompson had missed the Kings' previous two games with the sprained left ankle. He played 37 minutes against the Spurs, finishing with 15 points and seven rebounds.
"The ankle's still not 100 percent, but I felt like I did what I could to help the team out," Thompson said. "It kind of was nagging a little bit, but I obviously didn't want to be on the court if it was going to affect how I was playing."
Thompson was a perfect 6-for-6 from the field against the Spurs and added three steals and three blocks. His streak of five consecutive double-doubles came to an end.
Thompson said he sustained a "slight tweak" of the ankle in the second half. But, he said, "If it was too bad, then I would've asked to come out."
