Original story below…
Golden State Warriors fans have suffered a massive blow for next season today. The team announced today that All-Star guard Klay Thompson suffered a leg injury during a workout in L.A. He will undergo an MRI Thursday morning to get the status of the injury but the team is worried he may have torn his Achilles tendon in that right calf.
They’re holding on to hope that it’s nothing major.
Some members of the organization will fly to Los Angeles when Thompson gets his MRI to support him and get the results of the tests.
We haven’t seen Klay on the court since Game 6 of the NBA Finals between the Warrior and Toronto Raptors when he tore his ACL in his left knee. He has spent over a year in rehab and the team were looking to come back at full strength in 2020-2021 with the No. 2 pick and everyone healthy.
Golden State was looking to be contenders in the Western Conference, but the latest news is a significant blow to their title hopes.
An NBA source in the know about Klay Thompson’s injury simply answered to me: “Not good.”
