LThe Golden State Warriors reported Tuesday that All-Star guard Klay Thompson completed his first training session with the rest of the team since he suffered a torn ACL during Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals and the tendon Achilles Law in November 2020.
The player, through a statement offered by the Warriors, said that the day had been “exciting” after having been able to run again with the rest of the teammates, having the option to play basketball again and leaving behind all the bad moments lived.
Last week, the medical staff already authorized Thompson to work in the 5 against 5, without so far having had any type of setback with the old injuries.
Despite the good reaction that Thompson has had on his return to training, within the team they have not announced when he could be ready to return to official competition.
Warriors coach Steve Kerr noted that they still have several weeks to work on preparing Thompson, but there is no set date for him to return to active competition.
Despite Thompson’s absence, the Warriors have the best record in the Western Conference and the league (15-2) and have become the positive surprise.
