Multiple sources are reporting that Warriors superstar Klay Thompson has suffered a torn Achilles in a workout on Wednesday. This is absolutely heartbreaking as Klay was set to comeback from a torn ACL suffered in the Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

It is now looking like he will miss most if not all of this upcoming season and it will be interesting to see how he recovers from 2 major tears. The warriors have a great training staff and Klay will be extremely determined to comeback so do not be surprised to see that he comes back strong.

For the Warriors; it is a devastating loss as the team was expecting to pair Steph Curry and Klay Thompson with the second overall pick James Wiseman. Unfortunately that trio will be put on hold and Steph Curry will be tasked with leading this team along with Andrew Wiggins, and the aforementioned Wiseman.


Steph definitely can step up to the challenge but it will be fun to watch and see if Wiseman can reach his full potential, along with Andrew Wiggins and if so this team still has potential to make a solid run in the west. This Warriors team will be fun to watch come the regular season, and expect Klay to be a leader from the sidelines as his team attempts to comeback to contention.
