31

Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson is expected to miss the entire 2020-2021 NBA season after

suffering a torn right Achilles tendon, the team announced on Thursday (Nov 19).

 

Thompson – who missed all of last season after a knee injury sustained in the 2019 NBA Finals – had limped

out of a workout on Wednesday with an injury to his right leg.

 

An MRI scan early on Thursday confirmed Thompson’s season-ending torn Achilles.

“Klay Thompson suffered a torn right Achilles tendon, an MRI confirmed today in Los Angeles,” the Warriors

announced on Twitter.

 

“Thompson suffered the injury in a workout yesterday in Southern California. He is expected to miss the

2020-21 season.”

 

News of Thompson’s latest injury had prompted an outpouring of concern across the NBA on Wednesday

with players lining up to offer words of support to the 30-year-old five-time All-Star.

Thompson was a key part of the Warriors team that dominated the league with NBA titles in 2015, 2017, and
