Thompson suffered the injury while training in Los Angeles last week. The Achilles injury will cause him to miss the entire season, which will mark the second season in a row he misses due to injury.
The Golden State Warriors signed Thompson to a huge contract last year despite his torn ACL. He has four years and around $157 million left on the deal.
Thompson, 30, is a five-time All-Star. He averaged 21.5 points per game in 2018-2019 and is a career 41.9 percent 3-point shooter.
