Golden State Warriors expect to have Klay Thompson back from injury in a couple of weeks, as the ‘Dubs’ superstar missed two consecutive seasons.
The Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told 95.7 The Game’s “Damon and Ratto” on Thursday that the return of the veteran superstar is a ‘matter of weeks’.
“Now, it’s literally a matter of weeks,” Kerr said per NBC Sports Bay Area. “So he’s in good spirits, he had a great weekend in Santa Cruz.
It’s wonderful to see him happy and playing, but these last few weeks are going to be maybe the hardest time of all because he feels like he is ready to play right now. So he is still anxious to get out there.”
The Warriors have roared out to an 18-3 start without Thompson, and it’s clear that their star’s impending return will add more offensive options to the team.
Recent reports suggested that Klay could be back around Christmas after missing more than two years of NBA action due to multiple long-term injuries.
The Warriors will face the Phoenix Suns Friday night, hoping to return on top of the league against the Phoenix Suns, who are on an 18-game winning streak.
