Warriors fans didn’t have to wait for the new “Space Jam” movie to see Klay Thompson return to action … ’cause after 2 devastating injuries, the NBA superstar is back on the court!!!
Remember, 31-year-old Klay hasn’t suited up for the Dubs since tearing his ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.
Right when he was getting back to 100%, Thompson then tore his Achilles while playing a pickup game in November 2020 … which kept him from playing in the 2020-21 season.
But Thompson had a breakthrough this week … running up and down the court and working on his jumper at Chase Arena — and yeah, he’s THRILLED to be back at it.
“DubNation, I still have a really long, long, LOOOONG way to go,” Klay said Tuesday. “But my goodness, it felt so dang good to get up and down and see the ball go thru the net.”
“Can’t wait to burn em down next year 👌🏽 💦 🔥 !! Big milestone for me this week”
Klay kept busy while sidelined with the previous injury — he’s starring as “Wet Fire” alongside LeBron James in “Space Jam: A New Legacy” next month.
This time around, his free time was spent off movie sets … and you can tell he’s been busting his ass to stay in shape.
Steph Curry’s gotta be salivating at the idea of a Splash Bros. reunion … but he’ll have to hang tight — Klay says it may be a few more months before he’s fully healthy.
