Warriors’ Klay Thompson ruled out of 2020-21 season after tearing Achilles

For the second successive NBA season, the Golden State Warriors’ will have to do without Klay Thompson.

Thompson, who missed the entire 2019-20 season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during the 2019 NBA Finals, was playing in a pickup game in Los Angeles on Wednesday when he suffered the injury.

He underwent an MRI Thursday morning that confirmed the diagnosis. He is expected to make a full recovery.

“Klay has a strength of will but right now it’s a tough day for him,” Warriors general manager Bob Myers said. “It hurts. He’ll get to a place, I think, where he’s on the road. But right now, like you or I or anybody, this is a tough day for him to hear that news. It’s hard. It’s tough.”
Myers also paid tribute to Thompson as a teammate and as a player, noting that he was “universally beloved” across the league.
“How your peers feel about you in life I think says more than anything else,” added Myers. “I really believe that. And I think that he is admired within. He’s admired without.
“And you can’t put in words what he means to our team. What he means to our fans, our coaching staff, his teammates.”
