Warriors’ Steve Kerr gives positive update – About Your Online Magazine


As much as the Warriors and their fans enjoyed seeing Klay Thompson at the Chase Center on Tuesday night, they will like it even more than he told trainer Steve Kerr.

Thompson, on his first trip to see the team play this season, gave Kerr an upbeat update on his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury at the end of the season.

“I spoke to Klay before the game,” Kerr told reporters after a Loss 104-95 to Indiana. “It was great to see him. He is really in a good mood. He is happy to be here with his teammates.

“In your words, the worst is over.”

Kerr also revealed that Thompson, who currently wears a hiking boot, is about to take another important step in his recovery process.

“He will be able to get into the pool next week and start running in the pool. He was very excited about everything. It was great to see him, ”said Kerr.

That kind of positive update takes some of the pain out of not having Thompson playing for the second consecutive season.

And while Thompson can’t get on the court, Kerr and the Warriors believe that just having him on the court and in the locker room as much as possible is therapeutic for everyone involved.
