OAKLAND, Calif. - Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson had surgery Wednesday morning in Los Angeles to repair a torn right Achilles tendon and he is expected to make a full recovery, team officials announced.
The Dubs will look to rebound from a dead-last finish and the effort will not include Thompson on the floor, as he will miss the entire 2020-21 NBA season.
It's the second straight season Thompson has been sidelined with an injury. He sat out the coronavirus-shortened season last year while recovering from surgery for a torn ACL in his left knee.
Training camp is scheduled to begin at the start of December and the season starts on Dec. 22.
