Steve Kerr Gives Promising Update On Klay Thompson


After working his way back into form following the torn ACL he suffered during the 2019 NBA Finals, Klay Thompson received new devastating news when an injury he suffered this past offseason turned out to be an Achilles tear.

But Thompson was still with the team as often as his rehab allowed him to, and he seems to be more than appreciated by every single one on the team.

Thompson, who will make a full recovery, recently said that he’s never been hungrier to return.

The latest update on his return comes from his head coach, Steve Kerr, and it’s pretty good news. Klay has taken another big step, which included a huge psychological boost.

Per Anthony Slater at The Athletic:


“Not full contact yet. But starting to really get movement on the court. He’s still aways away from actually playing basketball in a 5-on-5 setting. But there’s a big step with the Achilles when you can actually start running again. It’s a huge psychological boost. The rest of the body gets going, you start feeling the soreness and aches and pains that actually feel good when you’ve been out for a while. He’s at that point.”
