Mychal Thompson: Klay will be at ‘full speed’ to start next season
Klay Thompson is roughly ten months removed from his torn left ACL, but he appears to be nearing the finish line in his rehab.
In an interview this week on 95.7 The Game, Klay’s father Mychal provided an update on the Golden State Warriors sharpshooter and his health.

“He’s feeling good, he’s working out on his own,” said Mychal. “He’s doing all of his drills, says he feels good. He walks around without any kind of limp, no soreness. So he says he’s feeling great, and he’ll be ready to go at full speed next year.”
The 30-year-old Thompson suffered the injury in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against Toronto on June 13 last year. The Warriors’ NBA-worst record this season and the subsequent suspension of play due to the coronavirus pandemic have enabled Thompson to take his time in getting healthy.
The team was optimstic about Thompson’s health even before the season was suspended, so they should have their way two-way star back in the lineup and ready to roll whenever the 2020-21 campaign begins.
