Warriors' Klay Thompson has not yet undergone surgery on torn left ACL


Warriors guard Klay Thompson tore his left ACL during Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors.

That was six days ago.

The five-time All-Star has not yet undergone surgery to repair the ligament, Golden State GM Bob Myers told reporters on Wednesday afternoon.

It's unclear if the operation will happen before NBA free agency opens at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 30.

Klay -- who is about to become an unrestricted free agent -- is eligible to sign a max contract with Golden State worth about $190 million over five years.

The most any other franchise can offer Klay is about $141 million over four years.

The two-time All-NBA selection averaged 26 points per game in the Finals against the Raptors, while shooting over 58 percent from beyond the arc.

While it's possible that Klay misses the entire 2019-20 campaign, do not be surprised if he dominates his rehab and returns sooner than usual. He is as tough as they come.

Klay will turn 30 years old on Feb. 8.
