Klay Thompson continues to take steps in the right direction. Although we are all looking forward to seeing him play again –he was the first–, every return after such a long period of hiatus (it has been more than two years) has its process. Following that line, Shams Charania de The Athletic notes that the escort could start training at the pace of his teammates within a month.
It is good news, true, but in the same way it makes us calculate the date of your return again. Christmas Day was long ago marked in red as a likely time for him to play an official match again. Now, days before the 2021-22 regular season begins, the voices begin to opt for the month of January.
In any case, whether it is a few weeks earlier or later sounds laughable. Thompson has suffered two back-to-back extremely serious injuries that render any precaution unimportant. Already in the training camp, he himself commented that he hopes to be one hundred percent again, but in the same way he understands that it is something that will happen with the passage of the games. You are not in a hurry, nor should you be. The plan is for him to be in perfect condition in April for the playoffs, not now.
