The good news continues to come to Oakland Bay as, after his spectacular 12-2 start as leaders of the West, today it was reported that Klay Thompson has the medical clearance to train with full contact while he continues his rehabilitation from a tear. Achilles suffered in 2020.
Thompson has already participated in some internal five-on-five games, he reported. ESPN after the recent win against the Brooklyn Nets.
“Last Monday he was able to play a five against five, and this Wednesday he will play another,” said Steve Kerr. “James Wiseman hasn’t gotten the go-ahead yet, but Klay has. And I have very good reports on him and he keeps moving forward. A two-year absence requires a lot of work. Not only in rehabilitation, but also in resistance work, strength … But it is great that I can now play five against five, but beware that it does not mean that I can return next week. He’s just progressing really well, ”he explained.
The Warriors’ hope has always been that he can return for the Christmas game, and seeing his progress that goal could be closer than ever.
«It is tremendous. Only from a mental point of view it is already very good for him. We are looking forward to your return. We know what it brings. We do not expect it to be the Klay of 2018 immediately, but he has left his skin, and I am looking forward to going out on the field with him, “said his teammate Draymond Green.
“I don’t know all the details, but I’ve seen him training, and he looks pretty good. I knew there was a reason for him to stay home (he has not traveled with the Warriors), to make the most of his rehab stint, so I am very happy to hear that he continues to move forward, “added Stephen Curry.
