Klay Thompson, who had a torn ACL in his left knee in the 2018-19 season and was off from play for more than a year, has suffered an injury in his lower right leg this Wednesday during a training session in Southern California and was assisted off the court, according to a report made by Chris Haynes from Yahoo.

Soon after the tweet from Haynes, the PR department of Warriors confirmed the news on Twitter.

“Warriors guard Klay Thompson suffered a leg injury today during a workout in Southern California. No other details are available at this time. We will provide further updates as appropriate,” the tweet from Warriors PR read.

The training camp for the 2020-21 NBA season is scheduled to kick off from 1st December onwards and it is unclear if Thompson will be available from the first day of the camp, as the team is yet to provide an update on the intensity of the injury and the estimated recovery period.

Thompson had a tear in his ACL during the sixth game of the NBA Finals against Toronto Raptors on 13th June 2019 and had missed the entirety of the 2019-20 season for his rehab.

The latest injury is a major setback for both Thompson, who had just completed the recovery in his left leg and was set to bounce back this season, as well as for Warriors, who may now have to wait for even more to see the revered shooter back in the squad.

The 2020-21 NBA season will commence from 22nd December.
