Thompson was practicing today in Southern California when he suffered a lower leg injury on his right leg. He could not put any weight on his leg, as he was leaving the gym.
He is presently undergoing tests. At this time, the severity of the injury is not clear.
We should know more about his injury by this weekend.
Thompson missed the entire 2019-20 season. He suffered a torn ACL injury to his left leg in June 2019 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
One-half of the Splash Brothers, Thompson is one of the best pure shooters in the league. The Warriors were hoping to contend this season after having one of the worst records in the league during the 2019-20 season.
The Warriors had the worst record in the league. Yet, they will have the No. 2 overall pick in tonight’s NBA draft.
Thompson — one of the best shooters in the league — was the 11th overall pick by the Warriors in the 2011 NBA Draft. He has not played since the 2018-19 NBA season.
During the 2018-19 NBA season, Thompson averaged 21.5 points per game. The 21.5 points per game was his highest since the 2016-17 season when he averaged 22.3 points per game.
The Los Angeles, California-born player also averaged 3.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.6 blocks in 78 starts. He also averaged 34 minutes per game.
In his NBA career, Thompson has appeared in 615 games, including 578 starts. He averaged 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.9 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 33.1 minutes per contest.
