KLAY

Five-time All-Star Klay Thompson is expected to play this season after missing the 2019-20 and 2020-21 campaigns, but he won't be available to start the year. That's not a huge surprise considering he hasn't participated in an NBA game since June 2019 when the Warriors lost to the Raptors in the NBA Finals. (Source: www.sportingnews.com "I would be surprised if it's not one of those home games, unless there's some kind of setback in the next month, which we know with those kind of injuries [could happen]," Friedell said.

According to coach Steve Kerr, Warriors guard Klay Thompson, who missed the past two seasons in their entirety due to ACL and Achilles injuries, participated in five-on-five action in practice for the first time this week. This doesn't mean that a return to game action is imminent for the former All-Star, but it's a positive sign of progress nonetheless. (Source:www.cbssports.com))

 

It's been over 30 months since Golden State Warriors shooter Klay Thompson has taken to court due to injuries. The one half of the Splash Brothers have been nursing an injury and is slowly making his recovery from the injury before making a comeback. The Athletic’s Warriors insider, Anthony Slater, recently offered an in-depth update on Klay Thompson coming back from the injury. (Source: www.republicworld.com "It's huge," Warriors forward Draymond Green said of Thompson's return. "From a mental standpoint alone, just huge. So I think it also helps with the way other teams view you as well. So we're looking forward to getting him back. We know what he brings to the table. We're not expecting him to be Klay Thompson of 2018 right away, but he's worked his ass off. He's worked his ass off for this moment, and I'm looking forward to getting him back out there." (Source:www.cbssports.com))

While there are no clear dates on Klay Thompson's return, Slater, in his interview, said that Klay Thompson has looked very solid in individual workouts and by looking at the movement to his shot, the Warriors guard looks very close to full strength. He said, " I’d expect him to get back into full practice at some point in the next few weeks or a month or so. I think the floating target is still around the mid-December range. November 25th will be the full 12-month mark from the Achilles surgery. He said he wouldn’t come back before a year. I think you’re talking mid-December at the earliest because the Warriors are so careful with him. If he’s not feeling full there yet by mid-December, I don’t think they mind pushing it into the January range. I think, overall, coming from the organization is a level of encouragement with how he looks right now." (Source: www.republicworld.com)

Golden State Warriors Steve Kerr said, “Klay’s imminent return is a huge factor for our team. There’s a sense of anticipation and energy that is directly linked to Klay’s return. On the injury front, we’re seeing his progress. It’s more incremental, more week to week rather than day today. But we can see him getting stronger, getting more comfortable and getting quicker with his cutting and lateral movement. It’s all very exciting. We’re thrilled to at least, finally, have the light at the end of the tunnel.” (Source: www.republicworld.com)

Thompson scored 52 points in 27 minutes while making 14-for-24 of his threes and shooting 18-for-29 overall from the field. His 10 three-pointers in the first half tied Chandler Parsons' league record set in 2014, and Golden State made 17 threes in the first half to set the NBA record fo

On July 1, 2019, Thompson agreed to stay with the Warriors on a five-year, $190 million maximum contract with an additional fifteen-percent trade kicker as a result of not making an All-NBA Team, which could have made him eligible for a supermax deal like Curry was in 2017.

Thompson has missed 29 months after tearing his left ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals and tearing his right Achilles on November 18, 2020.

Slater noted that Thompson has looked very solid in individual workouts. From his movement to his shot, the Warriors guard is very close to full strength. The next step for Thompson will be to practice in full with the team. As of now, Golden State is doing just fine without him.
