Top Klay Thompson News

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Pops for 23 off bench

    Thompson finished Sunday's 119-103 loss to Denver with a team-high 23 points (7-15 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes off the bench.

    Making his fourth straight appearance as part of the Warriors' second unit, Thompson out-produced rookie guard Brandin Podziemski (four points in 30 minutes) by a significant margin. Considering that no other Golden State bench player scored more than six points, coach Steve Kerr could be reluctant to move Thompson back into the starting five, as least until someone else steps up to provide some reliable offense off the bench.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Struggles with shot in victory

    Thompson finished with three points (1-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt), four rebounds, five assists and one steal over 28 minutes during Thursday's 128-110 win over the Lakers.

    Thompson found the bottom of the basket just once in the victory, a far cry from the hot hand he demonstrated before the All-Star break. He averaged 24.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 1.7 assists in the last three games before the break and converted 50.9 percent of his shots. He'll try to right the ship in the second half of the back-to-back against the Hornets on Friday.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Goes off in bench role

    Thompson tallied 35 points (13-22 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 28 minutes Thursday in the Warriors' 140-137 win over the Jazz.

    While playing off the bench for the first time since his 2011-12 rookie season, Thompson thrived in the new role, setting a new season high in scoring while firing off more than 20 shot attempts for the first time since Jan. 27. After the game, coach Steve Kerr told Anthony Slater of The Athletic that Thompson will continue to come off the bench after the All-Star break. While being deployed as the Warriors' sixth man could hurt Thompson's chances of regularly getting 30-plus minutes, the role should afford him more touches, as the 33.3 usage rate he sported Thursday was well above his season-long rate (23 percent). Fantasy managers shouldn't expect Thompson to regularly clear the 30-point plateau, however, as it took 59.1 percent shooting from the field and 53.8 percent shooting from three-point range for him to reach that benchmark Thursday.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Falls out of starting five

    Thompson isn't starting Thursday's game against the Jazz, Shayna Rubin of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

    Thompson was held to 12 points on 4-for-14 from the field in Wednesday's loss to the Clippers, and the Warriors will shake up the starting five by giving Brandin Podziemski the nod at shooting guard. This is the first time Thompson has come off the bench in a game since the 2011-12 campaign, his rookie season.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Goes for 26 points

    Thompson contributed 26 points (11-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Monday's 129-107 win over the Jazz.

    Thompson was impressive Monday, as he bounced back from Saturday's five-point effort against the Suns with his most productive scoring performance since early January. Thompson is not the deadly scorer he once was, but he continues to have value as an above-average shooter who can still score at a respectable rate. He's averaging 17.7 points per game while shooting 36.8 percent from three-point range since the beginning of February.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Available for Saturday and starting

    Thompson (illness) will be available for Saturday's game against the Suns. He's in the starting lineup.

    Thompson was a late scratch for Thursday's game against the Pacers, but he's fully recovered and is no longer on the injury report. With Thompson getting the green light, Brandin Podziemski will return to the second unit.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Late scratch for Thursday

    Thompson (illness) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Pacers.

    Thompson wasn't on the Warriors' initial injury report for Thursday's matchup, but he's dealing with an illness and was ruled out less than two hours before tipoff. Moses Moody and Brandin Podziemski are candidates to see additional minutes in Thompson's absence.

  • Warriors' Klay Thompson: Will play Friday

    Thompson (illness) was a full participant at Thursday's practice and will be available for Friday's game in Memphis, Monte Poole of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Thompson sat out Tuesday's game due to an illness, but he's since recovered and should be slated for his usual workload Friday night. His return will likely send Brandin Podziemski back to the second unit, and there will be fewer minutes available for Cory Joseph.
