If you're looking for optimism about the severity of Klay Thompson's lower leg injury, you've come to the wrong place. Though there has been no confirmation about how serious the injury is, a person very close to Thompson didn't exactly cool fears down.
NBC Sports Bay Area's Monte Poole reached out to Thompson's father, Mychal, and his response might indicate Golden State's star shooting guard could be out for an extended time.
After everything Thompson has been through since tearing his ACL in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals, rehabbing his way to be ready for the start of the upcoming season, it makes complete sense why his father would be disheartened by an apparent setback.
Thompson is undergoing tests to determine the severity of the injury. We can only hope that his father's reaction doesn't align with the results.
