Klay Thompson undergoes surgery to repair his Achilles tendon

Klay Thompson begins a new countdown to return to the courts. Reportedly, the Golden State Warriors guard has undergone surgery to repair the Achilles tendon tear he suffered a few days ago, which makes him out for the entire 2020-21 season.

Regarding the result of the intervention, sources of the aforementioned journalist assure that a full recovery is expected. The doctor who performed the operation in Los Angeles, Dr. Richard Ferkel, assures that the operation can be considered a success.

Although the result of the surgery is as positive as the sources comment, this does not leave behind the fact that it is an ailment whose recovery is not easy at all. DeMarcus Cousins ​​has not been the same player after suffering it. Kevin Durant, who also had to face her after the 2019 Finals, has yet to show that he can perform at the same level as before.

For Thompson the injury marks a second blank season since the ACL in his left knee was torn. This ailment occurred in the sixth game of the 2019 Finals against the Toronto Raptors, so at the moment he has accumulated 17 months without playing an official basketball game. Taking into account that he would return at the beginning of the 2021-22 course, we would be talking about 28 months without playing. The doubts about the game that he will be able to develop on his return multiply before such a calendar. (GG) (NBA MANIACS)
