Klay Thompson has not played in a single game in the NBA going back to the 2019 NBA Finals when he tore his ACL.
Since then, Thompson has been on the shelf for the last two seasons. But he is set to finally make his long-awaited return to the NBA, as he is expected to play on Sunday against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Getting Thompson back is going to be seen as a huge lift to a Warriors team that is already one of the best in the NBA; they are the second best team in the Western Conference.
Thompson missed the 2019-2020 season to recover from the torn ACL. Thompson then suffered a torn Achilles injury that took him out for the entire 2020-2021 season. Sunday will be the first time Thompson plays after both of those injuries.
Before the injuries that took Thompson out for the last two seasons, he was a five-time NBA All Star who helped the Warriors win three NBA Championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018.
