Klay Thompson Will Make His Return To The Warriors On Saturday Night
Even supposing Stephen Curry doesn’t appear to be he’s going to take the floor any time soon, the Golden State Warriors are beginning to get wholesome on the proper time. Draymond Green picked up just a few knocks that stored him sidelined, however he’s again. Kevin Durant didn’t final long in his return to the ground, however he’s again, too.
Now, the third member of Golden State’s four-man core is wholesome and ready to play. In line with Chris Haynes of ESPN, Klay Thompson goes to go well with up and take the ground throughout the Warriors’ sport on Saturday night time in opposition to the Sacramento Kings.
Thompson has been dealing with a right thumb injury, which as Haynes talked about was a fractured proper thumb. He acquired harm in mid-March and is correct on time to return, as he was anticipated to come back again onto the ground earlier than the tip of March.
Previous to taking place, Thompson was as dangerous of a shooter as there’s within the league. Whereas his 19.7 factors per sport is his lowest mark in a season since 2013-14, he’s setting profession marks in discipline aim proportion (49 p.c) and three-point discipline aim proportion (44.three p.c).
With a possible showdown with the Rockets looming in just a few weeks, the Warriors should be as near 100 p.c as doable heading into the postseason, and getting Thompson again definitely helps them transfer nearer to that aim.
