Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (Achilles) isn't anticipated to participate in full-contact practices until November, at the earliest. The veteran is working his way back from a torn right Achilles, and although there have been rumblings he may be back for the Christmas Day meeting against the Phoenix Suns, the team will undoubtedly continue to play it safe moving forward. In the meantime, Jordan Poole will probably continue to get minutes as a member of the starting lineup and should be classified as a viable option in fantasy formats of all types. On the other hand, Thompson is certainly worth a stash, even though he won't log an entire campaign.
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (Achilles) has made good progress in his rehab over the summer and is anticipated to participate in controlled drills during training camp as a result. Reports recently surfaced that Thompson could make it back for the Christmas Day matchup against Phoenix. However, if he continues to progress in the right direction, there is a chance he could be back sooner. The veteran hasn't played since tearing his left ACL during the 2019 NBA Finals before eventually succumbing to a torn right Achilles in November of 2020. Still, he has been one of the most impactful fantasy options over the years, currently holding a career average of 19.5 points while shooting nearly 42 percent from deep. Nonetheless, even if fantasy managers get at least a half a season out of the 31-year-old, he is still worth a stash, especially in category formats.
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (Achilles) could make his long-awaited return during the Christmas Day matchup against the Phoenix Suns. It's been a while since Thompson has been on the hardwood in an official capacity, with his most recent appearance during the 2019 NBA Finals resulting in a torn ACL. While a potential December comeback is undoubtedly welcome news, it will probably take him a month or so to build back up to full strength. However, a late-round stash for fantasy managers is still certainly warranted.
Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (Achilles) is inching closer toward a return. "He's on the court, he's running, he's feeling good," reported head coach Steve Kerr. The 31-year-old has been plagued with ailments throughout the last few seasons, tearing his ACL during the 2019 NBA Finals before injuring his right Achilles in November of 2020. Thompson has been one of the most productive fantasy options available, averaging 19.5 points while shooting nearly 42 percent from deep throughout his career. He should gain plenty of interest from fantasy managers heading into the 2021-22 campaign. However, he remains a risky option, primarily due to his health issues.
