Klay 10th among West guards in All-Star votes despite injury

Klay Thompson flex

Klay Thompson has not played in an NBA game since Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

And he is going to miss the entire season because of a torn right Achilles tendon.

But based on the first returns of NBA All-Star fan voting, the three-time NBA champion remains beloved and has not been forgotten.

Klay finished 10th among Western Conference guards with 99,094 votes, and it's very safe to assume most of those specifically came from Warriors fans.

The soon-to-be 31-year-old was an All-Star five straight years from 2015 to 2019.
