Klay Thompson Out Through All-Star Break After ACL Surgery

Thompson is "doing fine" in his recovery, according to Warriors general manager Bob Myers. . We'll have another update on him probably around the All-Star break. Don't construe that as if we think he'll be back by the All-Star break – that just means we'll have an update then. , Bob Myers, via statement. Thompson tore his left ACL during Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors in June. . He signed a five-year, $190 million contract this offseason to remain with Golden State. . I'm going to do what the team says. And I've done my due diligence on rehabs and ACL injuries, and the last thing you want to do is rush back. , Klay Thompson, via statement. As much as it kills me not to be on the court, patience is a virtue, and rushing back would be not very smart. , Klay Thompson, via statement. The Warriors lost star Kevin Durant to the Brooklyn Nets in free agency, . but added All-Star guard D'Angelo Russell via a sign-and-trade with the Nets. . I think my style of play can adapt to anybody, and I've been watching D'Angelo for years now ... I think he's just going to have fun as far as playmaking and coming off those pick-and-rolls. , Klay Thompson, via statement.
