After the brutal ACL injury during the NBA 2018-19 Finals, Thompson made an exit from the season. The unfortunate incident occurred during game 6 of the NBA 2018-19 Finals when the Toronto Raptors got to take home their first franchise championship win. But the good thing is that Thompson is recovering quickly now.
In a recent video, Thompson was seen walking with the help of a single crutch, hugging James.
