The Golden State Warriors are expecting a very big Christmas present.

Klay Thompson

Klay  Thompson
Team: Golden State Warriors
Position: SG, SF
Age: 31
Height: 201 cm
Weight: 93 kg
Birth place: Los Angeles, United States of America

The Athletic reported Sunday that guard Klay Thompson, who hasn't played since June 2019 due to injuries, should be ready to return to the active roster in the week before Christmas.

He took part in 5-on-5 scrimmages over the past week and now is cleared to take part in practices with the Warriors, per the report. They will be the first full-contact scrimmages for Thompson since he tore an anterior cruciate ligament during the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors more than two years ago.

In November 2020, he sustained a torn Achilles tendon during an individual workout before the start of the pandemic delayed 2020-21 season.

Thompson's return will be a bonus to the Warriors, who already have the NBA's best record (14-2).

The Warriors selected Thompson, now 31, with the No. 11 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. In 615 games (578 starts) with Golden State, Thompson has averages of 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game. He's a five-time All-Star and part of three NBA championship teams.
