The Golden State Warriors have the best record in the entire NBA at 11-2. What’s most impressive is that they’ve been this good without a key piece of the roster.
Klay Thompson is set to make his return to action this season. According to Jordan Schultz, he is making “steady progress” and is 5-6 weeks away stepping back on the court in game action.
He is reportedly in “great shape” and close to playing 5-on-5 in practice, which is paramount to him being cleared. With this timeline, it appears Thompson could return before the calendar changes to the year 2022. In fact, Christmas Day against the Phoenix Suns could be the perfect return.
On his career, Thompson has posted averages of 19.5 points per game while shooting 41.9% from deep. Regardless of what he looks like upon his return, he will should be an excellent shooter at minimum.
