Klay Thompson (knee) declares himself 100%, ready to return

In a video to fans in China, Warriors G Klay Thompson said, “my mind and body are 100% ready to get back on the court.”

Fantasy Impact

It was announced a few weeks ago that Thompson was cleared to resume all basketball activities and though he hasn't taken on contact yet, this is further affirmation that he's ready to play. Thompson should be a mid-round selection next season as the Warriors will be back to full-strength and eager to regain their status as a championship-contending team.

Klay Thompson (knee) cleared to train without restrictions

Sources told The Athletic that Warriors SG Klay Thompson received final medical clearance to begin training without restrictions a couple of weeks ago. Thompson took part in what was described as a "high-octane" session on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Warriors fans are elated to hear that Thompson is now cleared to resume training without restrictions,as he returns from tearing his ACL in his left knee just over a year ago. Thompson's recovery has been pretty tight lipped but he is rumored to already be "running, jumping, dunking, and doing just about everything you can do in an individual workout." The next step in his rehabilitation is taking on contact in 3v3 or 5v5 scrimmages but given the current landscape, that will be a challenge for Thompson. However, Thompson expects to be a full on-court participant in all of the Warriors mandatory summer activities. Still one of the best shooters in the NBA, fantasy owners anxiously await his return to the hardwood next season.

Klay Thompson ‘recovering fine’ from ACL reconstruction surgery

According to Warriors GM Bob Myers, Klay Thomson has been “recovering fine, and there hasn’t been a setback,” in his rehab from ACL reconstruction surgery last summer.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson suffered a torn ACL in a game 6 loss to the Toronto Raptors last June. He’s almost a year into his rehab and he seems to be on track to return to full strength soon. Despite that, Myers didn’t want to commit to Thompson being at 100% health at this point in time. He said, “ We have to take a look at him when we see him. There’s different versions of 100 percent. 100 percent for you or me with being able to walk around the street, that’s not 100 percent for a basketball player playing basketball." The Warriors won’t be playing the rest of the 2019-20 season in Orlando, so it’s likely Thompson can resume all normal basketball activities for the start of the 2020-21 season in December this year.

Klay Thompson (Achilles) 'not a 100 percent healthy yet'

Mychal Thompson (Klay Thompson's father) said he's not sure if his son Klay Thompson (Achilles) is a 100 percent healthy yet.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson sustained a torn ACL in his left knee in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals. When Mychal Thompson was asked if Klay was fully healthy, "I don’t know. He’s walking around fine. Who knows if he’s cleared to play. He has to get that clearance from his doctors and the Warriors. They haven’t talked about that yet." Thompson signed a five-year, $190 million contract this off-season, but has already been ruled out for the remainder of 2019-2020 campaign, even if the NBA (suspended due to the coronavirus) resumes.

Klay Thompson (knee) out for remainder of the season

The Warriors announced that Klay Thompson will not return this season as he recovers from a torn ACL in his left knee. According to Golden State head coach Steve Kerr, "This is what I expected from the beginning given the severity of the injury."

Fantasy Impact

It's official. Thompson will not suit up for the Warriors this season but he remains optimistic that he'll be ready at the start of training camp in late September 2020. Thompson's dynasty outlook remains intact but fantasy owners in re-draft formats can confidently send him to the waiver wire.
