Despite predicting that American NBA player Klay Thompson could return to the basketball courts as early as the beginning of the new NBA season, that will not happen.
Along with Steph Curry, the best player of Golden State, one of the best shooters in the league and a five-time All-Star player, could return only during 2022, said the general manager of the Golden State Warriors from San Francisco, Bob Myers.
“Maybe he’ll come back in December, maybe in January, and maybe later,” Myers told U.S. reporters.
Klay Thompson has not been
on the floor for the past two seasons. A severe injury to the Achilles tendon, but also complications during rehabilitation, forced this 31-year-old to wait a long time.
“If they saw Klaj looking at the floor at the moment, they would probably say that he can play tomorrow. But one is training, and the other is the league and playing five on five. He is definitely not ready to return,” Myers added.
In addition, Myers added that there is an option to send Klay Thompson to the “brotherly” club of Golden State, from the G League, where he would physically steel himself to return to the NBA league.
