The Golden State Warriors are 11-2 and currently have the best record in the NBA.
Yet their second-best player hasn’t even played a single game this season.
Klay Thompson had made the All-Star in five consecutive seasons, but the last two seasons have been injured.
ESPN’s Jordan Schultz reported an update on the All-Star Shooting Guardian on Saturday, and his tweet can be seen in a post embedded below.
Schultz reports that Thompson is making “steady progress” and is five to six weeks away from joining the team.
Thompson has career averages of 19.5 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game.
He also has shooting percentages of 45.9 percent from the field and 41.9 percent from three-pointers.
In the last five seasons he played before the injury, he has never averaged less than 20 points per game and has never shot less than 40% of the three-point range.
