Thompson was in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday when he was injured while working out. He could not put any weight on his right leg.
It has been revealed that Thompson has suffered a torn Achilles tendon. He will miss the upcoming season that begins on December 22nd.
This is a huge loss for the Warriors, who hoped to contend for the NBA Championship once again after having a lackluster season in 2019-20. Not only was Thompson injured, but Stephen Curry also missed much of the season, before the league was shut down in March due to the coronavirus.
Since the Warriors had one of the worst records in the league, they were not one of the teams that were apart of the league’s re-start in July in the NBA Bubble in Orlando, Florida.
One-half of the Splash Brothers with Curry also missed the 2019-20 season. Thompson suffered a torn ACL injury in Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.
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.
