Warriors Klay Thompson suffers concerning leg injury, severity unclear”

Just hours away from the Golden State Warriors potentially making a selection with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, reports have surfaced indicating star guard Klay Thompson has suffered a lower leg injury.

The fear is Thompson suffered a significant Achilles injury, sources told Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes.

Word of Thompson's injury spread quickly across the National Basketball Association on Draft night, with players expressing concern and well wishes on social media. Thompson reportedly needed help walking out of the gym.

Thompson is already coming off a torn ACL that he suffered almost a year and a half ago in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

The Warriors would have been desperately hoping for a fully fit Thompson ahead of the upcoming season, with the Warriors looking to make a big bounce-back from their dismal transitional period this year.

The injury was confirmed to be on his right leg by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

In his eight seasons with the Warriors, Thompson has averaged 19.5 points per game while shooting 41.9 percent from 3-point range. His teammates and peers also poured in well wishes for the five-time All-Star, who was a huge part of bringing three recent National Basketball Association championships to the Bay Area.
