The NBA world sent Klay Thompson prayers after learning he tore his Achilles

🤮 small thing to a giant

Injuries stink, man. Point blank. Period. They are the absolute worst part of sports.

Unfortunately, Klay Thompson has gone through two major injuries in the last year. In 2019 in game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors, Thompson tore his ACL.

Now, apparently, Thompson has torn his Achilles tendon just a few weeks away from the actual start of the NBA season. He injured his heel in a workout on Wednesday night. The Warriors were holding out hope it wasn’t too serious.

But when he got an MRI on his heel on Thursday morning and the results showed a torn Achilles, according to a report from ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

He’s also reporting that he should be able to make a full recovery from it.

Still, that is devastating. First, just for Thompson to have to miss two seasons in the midst of his prime because of injury is an absolute gut punch. There’s also the fact that the NBA will be without Steph Curry-Klay Thompson duo for two seasons on top of that, which is two seasons too long.

There’s no good way to cut this. Still, the basketball world sent words of encouragement to Thompson after getting the news.

Prayers and empathy go out to @KlayThompson Having had injuries that kept me away from the game I know how devastating it can be emotionally. If anyone can get through this and come back, I’m sure it’s Klay with his great work ethic. @warriors @ESPNNBA @NBATV @NBAonTNT @NBAcom

This is devastating. But, hopefully, Thompson will finally be able to come back and be something close to his regular self when this is all over.
