Klay Thompson's "milestone" moment might have lasted just one day.
During the Warriors' game against the San Antonio Spurs at AT&T Center on Tuesday, the injured Warriors shooting guard, who is rehabbing a torn right Achilles, was seen wearing a walking boot on his right foot.
Why is that significant? Because the Warriors posted a photo on Twitter on Monday of Thompson without a walking boot and coach Steve Kerr called it a milestone for the five-time NBA All-Star to get the boot off.
"He's definitely on schedule, he had a checkup a couple weeks ago with the surgeon, and everything went well," Kerr told reporters before Monday's game in San Antonio. "He was excited to get the boot off, and it's great to have him on the trip."
It's unclear why Thompson had the boot on Tuesday and Kerr wasn't asked about it during his postgame Zoom press conference after the Warriors beat the Spurs 114-91, but it could have just been a precaution while he sits on the bench during the game.
Thompson is expected to miss his second consecutive year after he missed the 2019-20 season with a torn left ACL.
