Klay Thompson is expected to miss the start of the 21-22 season as he returns from a torn Achilles, but he’s making progress this summer. Steve Kerr offered an update to The Athletic.
“Not full contact yet,” said Kerr. “But starting to really get movement on the court. He’s still aways away from actually playing basketball in a 5-on-5 setting. But there’s a big step with the Achilles when you can actually start running again. It’s a huge psychological boost. The rest of the body gets going, you start feeling the soreness and aches and pains that actually feel good when you’ve been out for a while. He’s at that point.”
Thompson suffered the Achilles last November in a pickup game as he was working his way back from a torn ACL in June 2019.
