Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson hasn’t played since the 2019 NBA finals. However, during an Instagram live session on Friday, Thompson revealed when he expects to be back on the court with the Dubs, via ClutchPoints:

Klay has been hampered with two big injuries over the course of the last two years. He tore his ACL against the Raptors in the summer of 2019 then also ruptured his Achilles in 2020 prior to the regular season.

The Warriors have sure felt his absence too, having missed out on the postseason in 2020/21 after the Memphis Grizzlies knocked them out in the play-in tournament.

As Thompson mentioned, an Achilles injury takes a long time to heal. It’s one of the most common injuries in the NBA and has to be treated with ultimate care so it doesn’t happen again.

While the ACL is fully healed, the Warriors sharpshooter can’t be ramping things up too fast for the sake of his knee as well. After all, Golden State desperately wants to see the Splash Bros back in action. Although Stephen Curry was nothing short of amazing this past season en route to winning a scoring title, he certainly needs some help in order to make the Warriors a contender again.

For the time being though, it looks like Klay Thompson is living his best life out on the water. But, there’s no doubt he’s also taking his rehab very seriously as the veteran aims to make a return to the hardwood early next season.
