Klay Thompson to return after 2020 All-Star break

Klay Thompson has been reported to be targeting a return from his ACL injury sometime after the 2020 All-Star break, Arash Markazi of the LA Times reports.

Fantasy Impact

The five-time All-Star has been recovering this offseason after sustaining a torn ACL injury during game six of the NBA Finals. Thompson finished the 2019 season averaging 21.5 points per game with a field goal percentage of 46.7 and three-point percentage of 40.2, the second-lowest mark of his career. Despite this slight decline in his three-point shot, Klay figures to be a key contributor to an offensively depleted Golden State squad when activated. The arrival of guard D'Angelo Russell should also provide more scoring opportunities for Klay, but owners should remain cautious as an ACL injury is no easy feat to overcome.

Klay Thompson (knee) underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his torn ACL, and has been given a timetable of five-to-seven months.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson recently signed a five year, $190 million contract to stay with the Warriors. There is hope that he would return sometime in February. Thompson averaged 21.5 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, and 3.1 triples made in 78 games for the Warriors last season.

Klay Thompson reportedly to re-sign with the Warriors (Update)

Klay Thompson will reportedly be signing the five-year, $190M contract offered by the Golden State Warriors. The deal can become official tomorrow at 6 P.M. ET.

Fantasy Impact

Despite suffering a torn left ACL during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, Warriors' GM Bob Myers still made Thompson the number one priority heading into this offseason. This will keep the Splash Brothers intact for the foreseeable future, but Thompson will be unable to see the floor until late next season as he recovers from his injury. The Warriors will now turn their attention to free-agent Kevin Durant.

Klay Thompson could be offered a max contract

Klay Thompson could be offered a five-year, 190 million maximum contract from the Warriors.

Fantasy Impact

The Warriors are looking to sign Thompson to a max deal deal, despite his ACL tear. He is expected to return to the floor around February or March 2020. Thompson is coming off five straight seasons of averaging at least 20 points per game. A key integral part of the offense, look for Thompson to remain with the Warriors for the foreseeable future.

Klay Thompson likely to receive a max contract from Warriors

Warriors GM Bob Myers is expected to offer a contract of $190 million across five years to All-Star shooting guard Klay Thompson. Thompson is currently in the recovery process of a torn left ACL and is not expected to return until late next season.

Fantasy Impact

This report quells any rumors that Thompson would negotiate with the Clippers and Lakers if the Warriors did not offer him a max contract. With this deal likely to keep the Splash Brothers intact, the Warriors will now turn their attention to Kevin Durant. However, with both KD and Thompson out for the foreseeable future, it will be interesting to see how the Dubs fill out their injury-depleted roster if they manage to re-sign both of their marquee free-agents.
