Klay Thompson assigned to G League Santa Cruz

Warriors G/F Klay Thompson was assigned to the team's G League affiliate in Santa Cruz on Monday, per The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson will likely play a few games there to get his conditioning back up to game speed before eventually returning to the NBA ball club in Golden State. If he isn't already, Thompson should be rostered everywhere in fantasy due to the immense upside he provides as an elite fantasy producer.

Klay Thompson (Achilles) targeting a December return to action

NBA Insider Shams Charania said Friday that the Warriors are targeting a December return for Klay Thompson.

Fantasy Impact

November will mark one year since Thompson ruptured his Achilles and according to Charania, the Warriors are in no hurry to rush him back. Even when he does return to the lineup, it's likely that he is on a minutes limit for quite a while after missing more than two full years of game action. He's a fine stash if your league has IR spots, but it doesn't seem smart to target Thompson early in drafts this season.
