A “psychological blockage” for Klay Thompson


Steve Kerr revealed on Friday that Klay Thompson would not play the two meetings in Japan, explaining that the Warriors were « simply careful » and that they were trying « to act intelligently“. The idea is to wait for the return to San Francisco to  » give it a little more time to ramp up. »

Present this Saturday at the festivities which frame the two friendly matches against the Wizards, and winner of the 3-point contest with Stephen Curry, Thompson gave a more precise version of his absence, and more than physical, it is mental.

 » I haven’t done the practice matches, and this week will be very, very important for me, especially with the return to San Francisco. he explained at the microphone of The Athletic.  » I haven’t played much this summer, it was tough… especially considering what happened in a previous summer when I was in good shape and tore my Achilles tendon , it was really hard there. Mentally it was hard“.

It was November 2019, while recovering from a ruptured knee ligament, Thompson tore his Achilles tendon within days of resuming training. He still has that in mind, and he can’t forget.

 » It’s complicated to explain, and it’s a kind of psychological block. I will get there one day, but the season has been so trying with my return, so difficult with winning the title and a month later you have to play again. That’s a lot, a lot… But I can’t wait to play again. »
