The NBA waits with bated breath to hear what appears not likely to be motivating news. Warriors secure Klay Thompson, who was playing in pickup video game in Southern California, has suffered a lower ideal leg injury which, evaluating by the vague but unfavorable reports, seems like it may be serious.

Thompson spent the complete period of the 2019-20 season recovering from a torn ACL in his left leg and was working to get his rust off and conditioning back.

The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported that Thompson could not put weight on his leg and will undergo more screening. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the injury was suffered in his lower ideal leg. The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears reported, per a source, the injury is “Bad.”

Immediately, several NBA players reached out to reveal sympathy, prayers and hope that Thompson’s discernibly major injury is less than that.

At the time of writing, thee Warriors held the 2nd total choice in the 2020 NBA Draft, however it several reports say it is not likely Thompson’s injury will impact how the organization makes its decisions on draft night.
