Klay Thompson tears Achilles in devastating Warriors blow

1

The devastating news the Warriors feared came to fruition on Thursday.

Klay Thompson suffered a season-ending Achilles tear while working out with fellow NBA players in California, ESPN.com reported.

Thompson, 30, will miss his second straight full season after being out in 2019-20 for a torn ACL he suffered in the NBA Finals against the Raptors.

It is a crushing blow for Golden State, which had hoped to regain its place on top of the NBA with Thompson and Steph Curry healthy to play alongside Draymond Green and James Wiseman, the No. 2 pick in Wednesday night’s NBA Draft.
