Steve Kerr: ‘It’s unlikely’ that Klay Thompson Plays this Season

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.

His coach, however, isn’t betting on that timeline.

“It’s unlikely that he’s going to play this year,” Steve Kerr recently told NBC Sports Bay Area in an exclusive interview that aired Tuesday in “NBA Season Tip-Off,” only on the MyTeams app. “So we have to understand that.”

Thompson, who suffered the knee injury during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, had surgery July 2, and has said he hopes to play after the NBA All-Star break in February. Recent history, however, suggests that might not be possible.
