Klay Thompson suffered a brutal injury in the NBA Finals, tearing his ACL against the Raptors. After undergoing offseason surgery, Thompson is expected to miss a large chunk of the upcoming season. Well, it looks like he's making strong progress in his recovery, as the star shooting guard was seen in a video doing a pretty impressive workout, considering the injury he sustained just a few months ago.
Thompson was doing lunges with the pole on his shoulders, and while he was obviously not moving near full speed or making sharp movements, it's encouraging to see him putting added weight on his legs.
The Warriors will be a different team with Thompson off the floor, but given this recovery video, perhaps he won't be out as long as initially feared.
One of the most prolific shooters in NBA history, Thompson will be hard at work throughout the remainder of 2019 as he looks to prepare for a midseason return to the court.
This video will have Warriors fans feeling excited about seeing the 29-year-old on the floor and back to his typical dominant self.
