Klay Thompson has been out of the NBA for two full seasons now. The former All-Star suffered a serious ACL tear during the 2019 NBA Finals and was ruled out for the subsequent season.
Last year, he was preparing to return to the league, when he suffered yet another injury to his Achilles. The injury kept him out for the entirety of the 2019-20 NBA season. But now he is set to make his return in a few months.
Fans are highly anticipating Klay's return to the game, with many hoping that he can replicate his form from before the injuries. Given Thompson's popularity in the league, there will be many fans cheering him on.
Klay's recovery will greatly determine how the Warriors' next season will go. Last season, Steph Curry had no help and was single-handedly carrying the Warriors.
But with Thompson back, there will be yet another elite attacking option for the Warriors who can carry the load for the Warriors. Given his injury history, the Warriors will not be rushing him and will give him as much time as he needs.
But Warriors' rookie Moses Moody has put some of the worries around his sharpness to rest with his latest comments. In a recent interview, Moody spoke about seeing Thompson work out and practice his shooting in person.
Moody found it to be a surreal experience watching Klay, one of the best shooters in NBA history, practice in front of him. And he also revealed that Thompson rarely even let the ball touch the rim, finding almost nothing but net.
"Man, it looks different in person, that was obviously my first time seeing it. But watching that repetition, that exact same shot every one, I mean I sat there & watched him shoot for 20 minutes, and it didn't touch the rim a lot, I can tell you that."
Klay is currently set to make his return to the court sometime in December, as the Warriors want to give him enough time to get himself fully fit.
With almost 2.5 years away from the court, there will be some rust to Klay's game. But if Moody is to be believed, it may not be as bad as earlier anticipated.
