Warriors' Klay Thompson: No restrictions on knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson has officially been cleared to train without any restrictions, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

While the Warriors won't be among the 22 teams in Orlando next month, the expectation is that Thompson will be a full go for the team's eventual offseason minicamp. According to Slater's report, Thompson received full clearance "a couple weeks back" and has already been participating in "high-octane" workouts. While the sharpshooter is yet to scrimmage, he's gone through individual and group sessions involving running, jumping, dunking, 3-on-0, and 5-on-0 situations.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Should be ready for camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Will miss remainder of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Still unlikely to play this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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' Klay Thompson: GM leaves door open for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Upbeat about recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Unlikely to play this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Steve Kerr said Tuesday that Thompson (knee) is unlikely to play this season, Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Thompson has already been ruled out through the All-Star break, and the circumstances surrounding his recovery and the success the Warriors would be having this year would have had to align perfectly for there to be a legitimate reason for him to return before season's end. That is still possible, and while unlikely, the Warriors have not gone ahead and officially ruled Thompson out for the entire season. The team will surely provide updates on Thompson's rehab throughout the season and have a better idea on what his timetable is much later in the year.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Ruled out through All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) has been ruled out through at least the All-Star break, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.

No surprise here, as Thompson continues to work back from a torn ACL suffered in June during the NBA Finals. The Warriors will by no means rush the All-Star guard back to game action, but hope remains that Thompson will be able to suit up prior to the end of the regular season. This latest update from the Warriors means Thompson will miss -- at a minimum -- the first 55 games of the year.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Close to jogging
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) said he's "about a month away from jogging," The Athletic reports.

Thompson suffered a torn ACL in the NBA Finals back in June, but he's maintained all along that he's motivated to return as quickly as possible. What that means in terms of a timetable remains to be seen, but the general belief is that Thompson, who underwent surgery in early July, could be back on the floor sometime late in the regular season or toward the beginning of the postseason, assuming Golden State qualifies.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Expects to return after All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) said his goal is to return to action before the end of the 2019-20 regular season, Arash Markazi of the Los Angeles Times reports. "I doubt I'll be back before the All-Star break," Thompson said. "But I want to be back this season."

Thompson underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL just over a month ago, but Markazi notes that he's already walking without a limp or the assistance of crutches. "I feel good," Thompson said. "I'm going to come back 110 percent." Assuming Thompson's timeline holds up and he's back sometime shortly after the All-Star break, he'd likely be able to suit up for around 20 games. However, it's very possible the Warriors will limit his workload and bring him back up to speed gradually. The 29-year-old is coming off of a season in which he started 78 games and averaged 21.5 points while hitting 40.2 percent of his 7.7 three-point attempts per game.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Undergoes surgery for ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his torn ACL, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Thompson's agent said he expects his client to make a full recovery in 5-to-7 months, per Wojnarowski.

In spite of his impending surgery, Thompson was able to land a five-year, $190 million contract with the Warriors at the start of free agency. While Thompson is hopeful to make a return as soon as December of January, his agent's estimated timetable may be a tad aggressive. For however long Thompson is out, the newly acquired D'Angelo Russell is expected to slot next to Stephen Curry in the backcourt and absorb most of Thompson's minutes and usage.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Agrees to maximum contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) agreed to a five-year, $190 million contract with the Warriors on Sunday, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

As expected, Golden State offered their star shooting guard a max deal, even after tearing his ACL in his team's final postseason contest. If all goes according to plan, he could return to the court as soon as February or March of 2020, which would give his squad a huge boost heading into the playoffs.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Warriors planning max offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Warriors are planning to offer Thompson a five-year, $190 maximum contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Unsurprisingly, the Warriors are eager to get a deal with Thompson done and will not waver off of the max despite Thompson's ACL tear. He's coming off his fifth straight season of averaging at least 20.0 points and three three-pointers per game, and he has shot over 40 percent from beyond the arc every season of his career. He is expected to return to the floor around February or March of 2020.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Set for surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Warriors GM Bob Myers said Monday that Thompson (knee) is set to undergo surgery to repair a torn ACL later this week, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.

Thompson suffered the tear in Game 6 of the Finals, so the surgery will likely take place roughly two weeks after the injury. The Warriors haven't provided a recovery timetable, but the general expectation is that Thompson will be sidelined for at least nine or 10 months, meaning he'll likely miss the bulk of the 2019-20 regular season. The sharpshooter is also set to hit the market next week as an unrestricted free agent, though he's given no indication that he intends to leave Golden State.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Expected to miss 9-10 months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is expected to be sidelined for nine to 10 months, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

Thompson suffered a torn ACL during Thursday's Game 6 loss against the Raptors. Thompson will miss most of the upcoming 2019-20 campaign, but early indications are that he could make a return in February and assist Golden State in a 2020 playoff run.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Suffers torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson's agent, Greg Lawrence, said his client suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during Thursday's Game 6 NBA Finals loss to the Raptors, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Thompson was enjoying a huge night before tweaking his knee while he was fouled by Danny Green on a dunk attempt with 2:22 minutes left in the third quarter. He managed to knock down a pair of free throws to finish with a game-high 30 points, but he retreated to the locker room immediately after and was quickly ruled out for the night. With Thompson's examinations revealing a worst-case scenario regarding his injury, the star shooting guard now looks poised to miss most -- if not all -- of the 2019-20 season. Like Thompson, teammate Kevin Durant's (Achilles) status for the upcoming campaign is also in peril, adding extra wrinkles to the impending free agency of both players.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Won't return for fourth quarter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Thursday's Game 6 against the Raptors, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

The nature of the injury has yet to be revealed, but it's evidently significant enough to keep Thompson out of a must-win game for the Warriors. Shaun Livingston and Quinn Cook started the fourth quarter and may be asked to pick up the slack with Thompson out of the mix.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Heads to locker room
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson went to the locker room during the third quarter of Thursday's Game 6 against Toronto after suffering an apparent knee injury, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.

Thompson looked to tweak his knee on a dunk attempt, but he did manage to knock down a pair of free throws prior to exiting the contest and heading to the locker room for further testing. His status for the remainder of the game is currently in question.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Drains clutch three in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson furnished 26 points (9-21 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal across 42 minutes during the Warriors' 106-105 win over the Raptors in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Monday.

Thompson's final line was impressive overall, but it was his final three points of the night that were the most critical. The veteran wing found the net on a three-point attempt with just over 57 seconds remaining, snapping a 103-103 tie and giving the Warriors a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Somewhat lost in the hoopla regarding Kawhi Leonard's stellar performances and Kevin Durant's ongoing injury issues has been Thompson's highly effective play during the Finals, which now includes three tallies of 25 points or more and better than 50.0 percent shooting overall and from three-point range specifically. With Durant re-injuring himself early in Monday's contest, Thompson will naturally take on another sizable role for the Warriors in their do-or-die Game 6 on Thursday.

Warriors' Klay Thompson: Leads the way in Game 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson amassed 28 points (11-18 FG, 6-10 3Pt), three rebounds, and two assists in 42 minutes during Friday's 105-92 loss to the Raptors.

Thomson returned after missing Game 3 due to a hamstring injury, hitting six triples on his way to a team-high 28 points. He combined with Steph Curry to score a total of 55 points but it wasn't enough as the Raptors recorded their second consecutive road victory, garnering themselves a 3-1 series lead in the process. Thompson was able to play 42 minutes and will almost certainly be out there for Game 5, despite the fact he may be running at less than 100 percent.
