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.
