Ever since Klay Thompson tore his left ACL four months ago, the Warriors guard has held out hope that he could return this season in time for a potential NBA playoff run, but his coach isn't betting on that timeline.
“It's unlikely that he's going to play this year," Steve Kerr told NBC Sports Bay Area in an exclusive interview that will air on Tuesday. Bulls guard Zach LaVine sat out 11 months with a similar injury, and Hawks forward Jabari Parker missed nearly a year. Kerr, who tore his ACL in college, believes Thompson will be on the same timeline as those players. Warriors GM Bob Myers said last week that Klay will not return until after the All-Star break so owners should absolutely lower their expectations for this year.
