Klay Thompson is wearing a walking boot, but he still has a handle.
Thompson dribbled in place while standing on the baseline during a break in the first half of the Warriors' game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at Chase Center, mixing in a couple between-the-legs and behind-the-back crossovers.
The 30-year-old is out for the season after sustaining a torn right Achilles tendon in November. Thompson has spent time with the Warriors at Chase Center and their practice facility this month as he rehabs his Achilles, and teammate Damion Lee said earlier this month Thompson's energy was "amazing" to be around.
Back in December, Draymond Green said news of Thompson's injury was "hurtful" because of the Splash Brother's love of the sport. Of all of Green's teammates, he said Thompson was the one most likely to "randomly" work on his dribbling or shooting form as he sat around -- without a ball.
With the ball briefly back in Thompson's hands Monday, you can see why.
