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

Thompson spoke to the media before the Warriors game 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.
