According to a source heard by reporter Adrian Wojnarowski, from ESPNThompson will undergo examinations in the coming days to find out the severity of the injury.

The owner lost all last season of NBA after an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament of the left knee, suffered in Game 6 of the Finals against the Toronto Raptorsin 2019.

The Warriors had the expectation that Thompson, who spent a year in rehab from the injury, would return 100% physically for the 2020-21 season.

Coach Steve Kerr recently said that while the Warriors did not release Thompson to play during the team’s bubble in San Francisco, he was satisfied with the way the recovery was progressing.

“It’s great to have you on the court, in the locker room,” Kerr said last September, during a videoconference interview. “Only his presence gave the team an injection of energy. It was his first activity after the injury and a year and a half without playing, so I didn’t expect to have him in shape. He moved well, it was a good first step.”

Thompson’s latest setback leaves doubts about the Warriors’ roster, who was confident he could fight for the title next season and for the protagonism of other times in the Western Conference. The Warriors have the second choice in the NBA Draft this Wednesday.

There was a sense of shock and disbelief at the club after news of Thompson’s new injury. The Warriors hope that the examinations on the shipowner’s leg will show nothing serious, so that he can join Stephen Curry and Draymond Green on the court.
