Fear is that Klay Thompson has sustained ‘heel’ injury [report]

More Klay Thompson news is rolling in, and it could be very good or very bad.

Shams Charania of The Athletic, who reported the initial news of Thompson sustaining a lower right leg injury in Wednesday, says the fear is that the injury is to Thompson’s heel. If it is just a heel injury, that would be great news. It could, however, also mean it is an injury to the Achilles, which would be a worst case scenario.

“Obviously any time you injure the heel, you have fears maybe it’s an Achilles,” Charania said. “He went to the sideline I’m told and was getting work done on that heel area. After that he limped off and didn’t put any pressure on his lower leg and exited the gym.

“He will get an MRI in the near future to really reveal the significance of the injury.”

After initial reports that Thompson sustained an injury to his right leg on Wednesday and is undergoing tests, the subsequent rumblings about the severity of the injury have not been positive. Marc J. Spears of ESPN is reporting that a source in the know claimed the situation was “not good.”

Warriors beat writer Monte Poole echoed that the injury looked bad, and said that Klay Thompson’s father, Mychael Thompson, did not sound optimistic.
