Golden State Warriors believe Klay Thompson could make his season debut with the team in mid-December.

According to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, the Warriors expect Thompson to fully practice with the team in early December. After that, he will need a couple of weeks to return to shape and play. However, Golden State could give him more practice time in order to be 100% healthy.

“I’d expect him to get back into full practice at some point in the next few weeks or a month or so. I think the floating target is still around the mid-December range.

November 25th will be the full 12-month mark from the Achilles surgery. He said he wouldn’t come back before a year. I think you’re talking mid-December at the earliest because the Warriors are so careful with him.

If he’s not feeling fully there yet by mid-December, I don’t think they mind pushing it into the January range. I think, overall, coming from the organization is a level of encouragement with how he looks right now,” Slater reports.

With Klay Thompson back to the lineup, the Warriors (5-1) will become one of the betting favorites to claim the title. Visit top betting website Pickswise for the latest odds in all NBA games.
