Next Sunday will be exactly 941 days since Klay Thompson played his last NBA game with the Golden State Warriors. That was all the way back in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA finals, when he suffered an ACL injury that kept him away until the start of the 2019-2020 season. But before it started, Thompson suffered an even greater setback when he was getting ready to return. An Achilles‘ tendon injury is well-known to be one of the main reasons athletes of any sport, it is known for that. NBA greats such as Kobe Bryant and Kevin Durant are two of the few exceptions to this rule. Both of them managed to return to their best form after such a serious injury. It’s now time for Klay Thompson to prove if he deserves to be part of this select group of players.
According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Golden State is about to release the official announcement of Klay Thompson’s clearance to play basketball again. This means that if everything goes well, Thompson will likely be eligible to play against the Cleveland Cavaliers next Sunday. Although Klay isn’t ready to play a full game yet, he will get to enjoy a few minutes on his return. Thompson ahs been getting ready for this return for a few months now, he’s already participated in a few scrimmages with his teammates. Coach Steve Kerr already said he expects Klay to at least play between 15 and 20 minutes on Sunday. But we are all asking the same question.
Is Klay Thompson going to play with Steph Curry?
That’s right, the Splash Brothers are likely to make their expected comeback on Sunday, or at least that’s what we all hope. But Stephen Curry isn’t going through the best moment of the season with some physical problems that made him miss the last game against the New Orleans Pelicans. We will have to wait and see how the injury report on Saturday looks like. If everything goes splendid for the Warriors, we will get to enjoy the Splash Brothers one more time on Sunday when Golden State face the Cavs. How excited are you for Klay Thompson’s imminent return?
