Klay Thompson shoots in full Warriors uniform on Chase Center court

Klay Thompson shoots in full Warriors uniform on Chase Center court

Just two days ago, injured Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson said he would "love to get out there" on the court with his teammates.

On Thursday, half of that declaration came true.

Thompson, who is rehabbing a surgically repaired torn left ACL, was out on the court at Chase Center shooting in full uniform.

Thompson was even sporting a headband. The shooting session lasted roughly 20 minutes.

Thompson spoke to the media before the Warriors game on Tuesday and provided an update on his recovery.

“It’s a tough part of the season,” Thompson said during halftime of the Warriors-Mavericks game. “It’s very rare for me not to be grinding through with them. But I’m trying to make sure this type of injury never happens to me again. So, I’ll be very patient because I want to play at a high level until I’m in my late-30s.”

The Warriors and Thompson have yet to decide if the All-Star will return this season. The team is scheduled to provide an update on Thompson's status in mid-February.

While we wait for Thompson to return to game action, we can just enjoy watching his sweet stroke again in these short bursts.

Why Steve Kerr said he wouldn't listen to referee in Warriors' win

Why Steve Kerr said he wouldn't listen to referee in Warriors' win

The Warriors haven't given fans too many reasons to stand on their feet and cheer at Chase Center this season. 

On Thursday, however, the Dubs gave their fans some Christmas joy with a shocking 116-104 win over the Houston Rockets in San Francisco. Steve Kerr wasn't about to stop his players from celebrating, too. 

The Warriors coach was told to stop his players from going on the court during celebrations, but he was having none of that. 

"At one point the ref told me ... he wanted me to our guys not to run on the floor and I said, 'That's not gonna happen. We've had a lousy season. We're gonna run on the floor. So if you gotta call a T, call a T,'" Kerr said to reporters on Thursday

Kerr said the ref came to him late in the game when the Warriors were pulling off the upset. He saw exactly what the ref saw, but that didn't matter. 

"Our guys were running all along the baseline," Kerr said. "There's no way I'm gonna tell them to stop cheering." 

The Warriors' win over the Rockets was one of the biggest upsets on Christmas ever in the NBA. The closing line at Caesars Sportsbook had the Warriors as 11.5 underdogs against the Rockets. According to ESPN Stats and Info, the Dubs' win was the largest upset over the last 30 years.

Whether you have eight wins or 73, sometimes you just need to cheer. On Christmas, Kerr wanted as many cheers as he could hear.

Warriors' valuation spiked over 1000 percent in last decade, per Forbes

Warriors' valuation spiked over 1000 percent in last decade, per Forbes

Joe Lacob, Peter Guber and the rest of their ownership group officially bought the Warriors in November 2010 for $450 million.

In December 2009, Forbes valued the franchise at $315 million. Back in February, Golden State's valuation had soared to $3.5 billion.

And as Forbes' Chris Smith wrote:

(That is) a ten-fold appreciation since 2009 that has proven to be the decade’s best team investment in all the major sports leagues, including the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL and international soccer, on a percentage basis.

The value of French soccer club Paris Saint-Germain rose 990% since 2009, the second-highest jump of any team after the Warriors.

The Dubs have fallen on hard times this season on the court, as they enter Monday night's game against the Timberwolves with the worst record in the NBA (tied with the Hawks).

But they are still built for sustained success, and the move to Chase Center will help them financially compete for years to come.
