Warriors’ Klay Thompson Out With Fractured Thumb

Published

Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson will be sidelined with a fractured thumb and is set to be re-evaluated on Match 22md, the team announced on Wednesday.

Thompson could miss up to 2 weeks of action, which would keep him on the sidelines for the next 7 games, according to ESPN’s Chris Haynes.

Thompson suffered the injury during the 2nd quarter of the Warriors loss on Sunday to the Minnesota Timberwolves, but played through the injury.

Thompson appeared on ESPNLA 710 AM alongside his father, Mychal, who is a broadcaster for the Lakers, who the Warriors played on Wednesday night, and spoke about his injury along with the timetable for his return to the court.

“Hopefully only a week; hopefully I’ll be back by next Friday,” Thompson said during the game. “Just sitting up here watching, I miss being down there, man, so I don’t want to be out any longer than that.”

Golden State is also dealing with an injury to Steph Curry, so as the season winds down they may be looking towards resting some players to help them heal up in time for the NBA Playoffs.

Warriors’ Draymond Green Discusses Future with Team

Published

As the Golden State Warriors prepare for the 2018-2019 season and a defense of their NBA Championship, again, they are also on the clock when it comes to new deals for Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant, a big challenge for the cap strapped Warriors.

Additionally, former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green will also need a new deal from the team, but the veteran forward believes he is in the best position when determining his future with Golden State.

“I’m not sure how it plays out, but I think I’m in the best position out of everybody,” Green said, during an interview with ESPN’s Sam Alipour. “Steph was up, now Klay and Kevin are up. That gives me the opportunity to see what everyone else does. And quite frankly, if I am the first to bounce, unless it’s in 2020, it wouldn’t be my decision. I can get traded. But I’m last. I should be the least of everyone’s worries.”

Green wants to stay with the Warriors for the long-term, and has expressed a willingness to put the team first in the past.

“I’d love to [stay],” Green continued. “When you look around the league today, how many guys have been with one team? Kobe, Dirk [Nowitzki], Duncan, Manu [Ginobili]. It don’t happen like that anymore. That’d be amazing. But at the end of the day, it’s a business. Let the cards fall how they may.”

Warriors’ Klay Thompson Sees Staying with Golden State for a Long Time

Published

Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson is entering the final year of his current contract and his impending free agency will continue to be a hot topic throughout the 2018-2019 regular season, but folks shouldn’t hold out too much hope that Thompson will switch teams next summer.

In fact, Thompson sees himself playing for the Warriors for a long time to come.

“Yeah, well it’s a great position to be in” Thompson said during an appearance on Sirius NBA Radio.

“To be wanted is definitely awesome. It means you’ve been — you’re respected and you put in work, and NBA free agency has taken on a whole life of its own now. It’s crazy. You hear about it sometimes more than you do, even the regular season. That’s just the eagerness of fans trying to get — they’re trying to see the fantasy team. It is a goal of mine to be with the Dubs for a long, long time. Like I said before, it’s just special to do it in one place. To be known like the Derek Jeters, the Brett Favres, Kob, list goes on — Tim Duncan.

It’d be a goal of mine. A lot can happen though, but, it would definitely be awesome to be a Warrior for as long as I could possibly be.”
