Warriors say Klay Thompson won’t play this season

Associated Press February 21,2020 - 10:19 AM

SAN FRANCISCO — Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson will not play the rest of the regular season, the team said Thursday (Friday, February 21, 2020, Philippine time).

It was expected that Thompson would miss the entire season as he recovers from a torn knee ligament, and the Warriors said it definitively before their game against Houston.

Thompson tore the ACL in his left knee last June during the deciding Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors and had surgery July 2. He was re-evaluated over the All-Star break and the team said Stephen Curry’s Splash Brother “is making good progress and is right on track with his rehabilitation timeline.” Golden State expects him ready to go for training camp in late September.

The question now will be whether Thompson still wants to play in the Tokyo Olympics if he hasn’t returned to game action.

An update on Curry’s recovery and progress from a broken left hand is planned for Feb. 28 and he expects to be back on the court in March.
