ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Dr Richard Farkel performed the surgery on the 30-year-old.

The shooting guard suffered the injury during workout ahead of the season start. Thompson has been unable to make it to the court ever since his injury at the 2019 NBA Finals against Toronto Raptors.

The unfortunate injury saw him miss out the last season which saw Los Angeles Lakers win the championship while the Warriors languished at the bottom of the western conference table.

This time around also, Thompson would be forced to watch his team from the sidelines as the injury will keep him off the action by a big margin.

Despite suffering the major injury last year, Golden State Warriors tied Thompson to a lengthy deal. As of now, he still has four years left on the deal worth $157 million. Thompson has managed to make it to the All-Star, a total of 5-times. Moreover, he has managed to register 21.5 points per game in 2018-2019 and boasts a 41.9 when it comes to 3-point shooting.

While he suffered the 2019 injury was localised to his left knee ACL, this time around, Thompson inflicted an injury upon his lower right leg during the workout. The injury was deemed serious right from the start since he was unable to put weight on the leg as he was leaving the site of calamity.

Golden State Warriors have traded in 24-year-old Kelly Oubre Jr. and picked up James Wiseman in the draft as well. The franchise would be hoping for a better showing this time around despite the absence of their ace shooting guard with the additions they have made to the roster and also the return of a fully-fit Stephen Curry.
