Guardians of the Golden State Warriors, Klay Thompson, right, and Stephen Curry, left, will attend a training session at Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado on Thursday, December 30, 2021.

There is « optimism » Warriors Guard Klay Thompson will be back in action on Sunday for the first time in more than two and a half years, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Head coach Steve Kerr, who spoke ahead of the game against Miami on Monday night, gave no update on Thompson’s schedule. When asked if the Sunday scenario was realistic, Kerr said, “It is possible.”

The Warriors are expected to make a final decision on Friday, Wojnarowski said after returning from a trip to Dallas and New Orleans. You’re playing street games against the Mavericks (Wednesday night) and Pelicans (Thursday night) this week. Kerr said Thompson will join the team on the trip.

Then he could make his long-awaited return against Cleveland on Sunday at the Chase Center. That fits in a way: Thompson and the Warriors won the NBA championships by beating the Cavaliers in the 2015, ’17, and ’18 Finals.

Thompson, 31, has had a cruciate ligament rupture in Game 6 of the Finals did not play an NBA game against Toronto in June 2019. He later tore his Achilles tendon as he neared his return from a cruciate ligament rupture in November 2020.

There is optimism that Golden Warriors guard Klay Thompson will return against the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, sources tell ESPN. A final decision is expected once the Warriors return from a two-game trip on Friday.

The Warriors have been stepping up Thompson’s rehabilitation over the past few weeks, including his first scrimmage with Stephen Curry
and other starters in Denver last week. Golden State hosted Miami on Monday night before returning to the streets.

Thompson and team officials have announced that he will be returning home – so if he doesn’t play Cleveland on Sunday, his next opportunity would be January 18 against Detroit.

Weatherspoon signs new deal: Quinndary
Weatherspoon’s Christmas work earned him a new contract in the New Year.

The Warriors, who signed a 10-day contract with Weatherspoon on December 23rd over the NBA’s hardship exemption, made a deeper commitment on Monday. They signed Weatherspoon to a two-way contract, filling the space that became vacant when the team passed on Jeff Dowtin Jr.
on Sunday.

Weatherspoon, a third year old 6-foot-3 guard from the state of Mississippi, will now be available to the Warriors (and their G League daughter in Santa Cruz) for the remainder of the season. Two-way players can compete for a maximum of 50 NBA games in one season.

Weatherspoon, who has played 31 games for San Antonio in the past two seasons, was in Santa Cruz when the Warriors Jordan Poole, Andrew Wiggins and Damion Lee lost to coronavirus issues. They called Weatherspoon for their game on December 25th in Phoenix.

He responded with 14 minutes of full punch: six points, a rebound, a steal and a blocked shot. Weatherspoon also stubbornly defended himself against Suns guards Chris Paul and Devin Booker.

Denver Game Postponed: The NBA announced that last Thursday’s Warriors Nuggets game in Denver, which was postponed because the Nuggets did not have enough players, will be played on March 7th.

That does from a three-game trip to a four-game trip for the Warriors: Minnesota, Dallas, Los Angeles (Lakers), and Denver. Then they return home to face the Clippers on March 8th to form a back-to-back set before returning to Denver for another game on March 10th.

« For us it’s a lot harder of course because they have nowhere to go, « said Kerr. “We have to go on a special trip. So it’s not ideal, but a lot of teams have to make concessions and do different things to keep the league moving. ”

Wiseman Released: James Wiseman, a sophomore who worked on the league’s health and safety protocols, was released to resume training when he returns from a knee injury. Wiseman participated in the shooting on Monday and is hoping to be in contact with work next week.
