A number of reports suggested on Wednesday night that Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson might have suffered yet another serious injury after sitting out the entire 2019-20 campaign with a torn ACL in his left knee.
The first news on Thompson’s status came from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who tweeted that the five-time All-Star was set to undergo testing “within the next few days” after apparently getting hurt during a workout in Southern California. The veteran NBA insider added in a follow-up post that Thompson might have injured his lower right leg.
In a separate Twitter thread, Wojnarowski’s ESPN colleague Ramona Shelburne offered more details, writing that “everyone in Warriors land” was feeling “down” after learning of what happened to Thompson but remained optimistic that things would turn out better than expected. She added that the three-time league champion “felt pain” in his calf area after he landed on it.
