June of 2019 was the last time that Klay Thompson played an NBA game. The 31-year-old shooting guard has been sidelined with injuries since.
Two and a half years later, Golden State Warriors star is weeks, if not days, away from his return. The team expected Thompson to play as soon as December 28, but latest report suggest it could happen in January.
The information coming out from inside the team should make the Dubs fans feel optimistic. According to Thompson’s teammate Juan Toscano Anderson, the guard looks as good as ever during practice.

“Klay is one of those dudes,” Toscano Anderson said on Wednesday after the Warriors practice. “I was like, ‘Man this dude just came off an injury for over a year and he’s competing.’ That goes to say, he looks like he hasn’t lost a step. Explosive. Can shoot the ball. I’m really excited to see him out there, as a fan and a teammate.”
