Klay Thompson’s return to basketball is the most anticipated one by NBA fans. Unfortunately, the 31-year-old has been down to one’s luck the past two seasons. After helping Steph Curry and the Warriors win three championships, Thompson injured his ACL in the 2019 NBA finals. The injury kept him out the following season, as the Warriors finished the year with the worst record in the league.

However, that was not the end of this story. Before starting this season, Klay Thompson tore his right Achilles, which ruled him out for the year. This injury had many fans worried since only Kevin Durant could return to basketball at an All-Star level after an Achilles injury. Klay Thompson’s rehab has been long and under the radar. Nevertheless, Steve Kerr has given a positive update on Thompson’s rehabilitation.

Klay will likely miss the start of the season, but the latest updates sound promising.

“There’s a big step with the Achilles when you can actually start running again. It’s a huge psychological boost. He’s at that point.”

Steve Kerr’s Klay Thompson update

Klay Thompson is running again, which is excellent news and a big step to recovering from an Achilles injury. As Kerr said, that is a huge psychological boost. However, he is still far away from actually playing in a five-on-five setting with full contact. This means that realistically, Klay will not be ready to play any time soon with just 90 days left till the 21-22 season opener. In addition, fans must remember that Thompson is still yet to play after his ACL injury, which will add to his time to get back to his old self.

Klay Thompson will most likely miss the first half of the 21-22 regular season, which is a big blow for the Warriors as they looked to make a playoff push this upcoming season. Nevertheless, these injuries do take time to heal fully. Therefore, Steve Kerr’s update on his rehabilitation is nothing but promising.
