Before we got a chance to watch tonight’s NBA Draft, Shams Charania of The Athletic dropped awful news: Klay Thompson has suffered another “leg injury” and awaits further testing to assess the damage. Nothing’s certain yet, but this could be catastrophic to Warrior title hopes this year.
We never like to see injuries in sports, but given the fact that Thompson missed all of the 2019-20 season rehabbing a torn ACL, this one really stings. We’ll be sure to share any developments on Klay as they come.
Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes is reporting that Golden State fears Klay Thompson may have a “significant” Achilles injury. Terrible news that, if true, would sideline Thompson until at least 2022.
Yahoo Sources: The fear is Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson has suffered a significant Achilles injury. An MRI scheduled for tomorrow morning.— Chris Haynes (@ChrisBHaynes) November 19, 2020
The team awaits an MRI tomorrow, so nothing official has been said. As of now, the Warriors need a miracle.
