The Warriors said on the company’s website: “The All-Star years old broke his right Achilles tendon during a workout on Wednesday, and an MRI scan in Los Angeles.
“Klay has a lot of determination but now is a difficult day for him,” said the Warriors general manager. “It hurts. He thinks about where he’s going. I think he’s on the road. But now, like you or me or anyone else, this is a difficult day for him to hear that news. It’s hard.”
Myers also paid tribute to Thompson as a teammate and player, noting that he was “loved by the world” in the league.
“How do your friends feel about you in life? I think more than anything else,” Myers added. “I really believe it. And I think he was praised inside. He was praised without.
“And you can not write a statement he made to our team.
Myers also said he was anxious to get into the upcoming season due to Thompson’s absence.
“I can not sit here and say I feel good,” Myers said. “I have faith in our players. I have faith in our coaches. I have faith in our ownership. We will move on. We will not stop. But the truth is, it hurts me. I know it hurts our organization.”
Wiseman has a center, not Thompson’s focus on shooting, but will have to ship alongside Curry and Draymond Green to make sure the 2020-21 season is no more explosive.
Curry, Thompson and Green, 30, helped the Warriors form a royal party, winning three NBA titles in the last five games in a row.
But Curry used to have problems with his injuries and now he is 32 years old. And with Thompson’s last setback, it’s hard to see the Warriors coming back to the heights of recent history.
