Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson suffered a lower leg injury during a scrimmage in Southern California, the team confirmed on Wednesday afternoon.
The fear, according to Yahoo Sports’ Chris Haynes, is that Thompson “suffered a significant Achilles injury.” He will undergo tests over the next few days to determine the severity of the injury, and is set for an MRI on Thursday.
Thompson was reportedly unable to put any weight on his leg as he left the gym.

Thompson missed all of last season while recovering from a torn left ACL he suffered during the 2019 NBA Finals. His injury was the first of several brutal ones for the Warriors, as it was followed by Kevin Durant’s Achilles tear and Steph Curry’s broken hand.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Thompson hurt his right leg on Wednesday — the opposite leg he injured last year.
Praying a lot @KlayThompson is cool!! Like it’s super minor. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

The 30-year-old returned to practice with the Warriors in late September, nearly 500 days after first tearing his ACL in Game 6, and was preparing to start the year on time with Golden State when the season kicks off on Dec. 22.
The five-time All-Star averaged 21.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game during the 2018-19 season. He is in the second year of a five-year, $189 million deal with the Warriors.
