Klay Thompson (knee) unlikely to play for Warriors this season
Golden State Warriors guard/forward Klay Thompson (knee) is unlikely to play this season, said head coach Steve Kerr.
Thompson tore his ACL in Game 6 of the NBA Finals and underwent surgery on July 2. "It's unlikely that he's going to play this year," said Kerr. "Generally, an ACL for a basketball player is a full-year recovery, and if it's a full year for Klay, that puts them out for the season." The Warriors start their season on Thursday against the Los Angeles Clippers.
Klay averaged 21.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.1 steals, 0.6 blocks, and 3.1 3-pointers in 78 games last season.
