Klay Thompson's long comeback from injuries continues to take steps in the right direction. The Golden State Warriors have assigned Thompson to the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League for some increased practice reps.

Thompson has not played in an NBA game since Game 5 the 2019 NBA Finals. Thompson tore his left ACL during that game. While rehabbing from that injury, Thompson tore his right Achilles tendon.

James Wiseman, who is also working his way back from injury, was also assigned to Santa Cruz. Both Thompson and Wiseman are expected to practice with the G League affiliate, but are unlikely to appear in G League games.
