Klay Thompson will not be returning to the basketball court for the upcomng season.

On Thursday, the worse fears were confirmed when his injury sustained revealed that he suffered a torn Achilles.

Thompson was playing with several NBA players in Los Angeles and felt pain in the calf area when he landed on his leg.

Thompson missed all of last season after tearing the ACL in his left knee during Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors. The Warriors were optimistic that Thompson, who has spent more than a year rehabbing the injury, would come back at full strength for the 2020-21 season.
