  • Coach Steve Kerr told Tim Kawakawi of The Athletic last week that he expects Thompson (knee) will be "ready to roll" when training camp begins ahead of the 2020-21 season. "Finally over the last few weeks he was able to start shooting with our guys, running through some drills and he was so happy to be out there," Kerr said of Thompson. "He's going to be so ready to play next year and so excited and the rehab is coming along really well, so I have no doubt that assuming everything starts in September and October like it usually does that Klay will be in great shape." The Warriors officially ruled Thompson out for the season shortly after the All-Star break, but Kerr's comments reaffirm that the star shooting guard isn't a candidate to play in 2019-20 even with the NBA having suspended operations indefinitely. The 30-year-old will be 14 months removed from ACL surgery by the time September arrives, so he may enter the 2020-21 season without any restrictions for back-to-back sets.

  • Thompson (knee) will officially miss the remainder of the season while recovering from a torn left ACL, Marc Stein of The New York Times reports. Thompson had recently been deemed unlikely to return this season by coach Steve Kerr, but the 30-year-old's permanent shutdown is now official. The shooting guard has reportedly made good progress in his recovery from the injury suffered in last year's NBA FInals, but with the Warriors holding the worst record in the league, there's no reason for the team to rush him back in what has become an irredeemable season. Thompson should be ready in plenty of time for the start of the 2020-21 campaign, and he could even be available for competitive action in June, when he'll be a candidate for a spot on United States' 12-man roster for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

  • Coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday he doesn't "entertain any thoughts of [Thompson] playing this year," Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. General manager Bob Myers said earlier in February that the All-Star guard had minor chance of returning this season, but Kerr indicated Tuesday that Thompson is still "a long way" from have a definitive return timeline. The 30-year-old has participated in light shooting work at certain points throughout the season, but there hasn't been any clear-cut signs a return from the torn left ACL is coming in the near future.

  • Warriors general manager Bob Myers told ABC's Lisa Salters on Saturday that Thompson (knee) has "a chance" to return this season, Ali Thanawalla of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. "We're going to have an update [on Thompson] probably around All-Star break," Myers said during the broadcast of the Warriors' 125-120 loss to the Lakers. "But like Steph [Curry], if they're healthy and they're cleared, they'll play. But if they're not, obviously we're not going to play them." Thompson has been able to do some light shooting work at various points during the season, but the prevailing sentiment is that he'll sit out the entire 2019-20 campaign to afford him optimal recovery time from the torn ACL he suffered in last year's NBA Finals. Myers is at least leaving the door open for Thompson to make a late-season return, but don't expect the 12-41 Warriors to push him to play unless the 30-year-old insists on doing so.

  • Thompson admitted Tuesday that while his rehab from a torn ACL in his left knee is "going great," he's uncertain if he'll be available to play at any point this season, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports. "I haven't stopped working since the third day after Game 6 of the 2019 Finals," Thompson said, in reference to the time he underwent surgery last June. "You might not see me a lot, but I'm working. I don't know what's going to come this season, I would love to get out there." When Thompson last met with the media in September, he left the door open to return after the All-Star break, but coach Steve Kerr then suggested a month later that the 29-year-old was unlikely to suit up in 2019-20. In the months that have followed, Thompson has seemingly come around to Kerr's line of thinking, and the Warriors' placement at the bottom of the Western Conference standings probably doesn't help the shooting guard's chances of making it back before the regular season wraps in mid-April. The Warriors plan to re-evaluate Thompson around the All-Star break, but that's likely just to make sure his rehab is continuing to go smoothly rather than a means of identifying a potential target date for his return.
