Klay Thompson has not played competitive basketball in two years. After suffering a torn ACL in 2019 NBA Finals that put him out for the entire 2019-2020 NBA season, the Warriors' sharpshooter has suffered another setback last year before the start of the 2020-2021 NBA season.

Golden State Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr talked about Thompson's injury.

During a recent interview on ABC 7, Kerr finally gave another update on Thompson's recovery

«When Klay started running about three weeks ago, it was like the light was suddenly at the end of the tunnel. I could just tell a big change in his optimism and in his feeling of being part of the group–preparing for next season. These last few weeks have been great, he's putting in so much work,» Kerr said.

With an Achilles [injury], those first couple of months are just painstaking in terms of just how slow everything comes, progress-wise. So this is really exciting that he's now on the floor and really starting to move." Kerr added.

Kerr are looking forward to a healthy Warriors team next season as he expects Klay and James Wiseman to be full healthy.
