Klay Thompson has not performed for the reason that 2019 NBA Finals, and his absence may now bleed into one other calendar yr.
Golden State Warriors normal supervisor Bob Myers offered an replace on Thompson’s progress to reporters on Monday. He stated that the previous All-Star guard can have a “affected person ramp-up” and will return in “perhaps January,” per Connor Letorneau of the San Francisco Chronicle.
We knew that Thompson wouldn’t be prepared for the beginning of the 2021-22 season as he continues to work again from a torn left ACL and subsequent ruptured proper Achilles. However Myers’ replace is a barely extra pessimistic estimate of Thompson’s return date than had previously been anticipated this offseason.
The Warriors went 39-33 (.542) with out Thompson final season and made it to the play-in event. They must proceed to tread water in his absence in the meanwhile. However Thompson’s return ought to undoubtedly be definitely worth the wait for a number of different reasons.
