Status of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green revealed for Warriors minicamp
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told Wes Goldberg of the Bay Area News group that Curry and Green won’t be at the voluntary minicamp for family reasons.
However, Thompson — who missed the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his ACL tear — will be there, which is great news since the All-Star guard hasn’t played five-on-five in a very long time.
Here’s more information on the Warriors’ minicamp, per Goldberg:
The two-week camp will begin Monday, with players reporting to a team-designated hotel in San Francisco. There, they will undergo coronavirus testing and quarantine for 48 hours before beginning group workouts at Chase Center on Wednesday. Players will stay at the hotel for the full two weeks, leaving only by private vans to work out at the arena.
Most Warriors players — including Klay Thompson, Kevon Looney, Andrew Wiggins and Eric Paschall — are expected to participate. Warriors head coach Steve Kerr anticipates a “pick-up ball”-type atmosphere and doesn’t plan to teach specifics of the playbook — something he will save for training camp. In addition to daily workouts, which will include scrimmages, Kerr will invite guest speakers to talk to the team through RingCentral, a video conferencing software.
The Warriors had the worst record in the NBA in 2019-20. Stephen Curry only played in five games due to a broken left hand. The two-time MVP required two surgeries before he was able to play again.
Golden State will likely be back in the playoffs next season with Curry, Thompson and Green leading the way. The Warriors also have the second overall pick in the 2020 draft as a result of their putrid 2019-20 campaign.
