Kerr says that Klay continues do more scrimmage work and has looked good — but he will not travel on the upcoming east coast swing.
James Wiseman still has not been cleared for scrimmaging. – 8:27 PM

Klay Thompson says return could be in few weeks, maybe a month…7:45 AM

Duane Rankin @DuaneRankin
“With Book out, we don’t have Klay, it’ll look different Christmas Day. It’ll look different March when we play them and possibly different in a playoff series.”
“We arguably played the best team in the league. Them or us. We’re not quite sure who it is.” PM

📅 On this day in 2016, the @Golden State Warriors Klay Thompson scored 60 points in just 29 minutes played in a 142-106 win over the Pacers.
Thompson, who did not appear in the fourth quarter, is the only player in NBA history to record a 60-point game while playing less than 30 minutes. AM

New story: Klay Thompson is returning soon to a Warriors team that has the best record in the league.
It makes you wonder — Have we even seen this team’s potential yet?…2:55 PM

Steph Curry gives some of his Klay Thompson scrimmage impressions AM

Sam Quinn @SamQuinnCBS
Klay didn’t play for the Warriors. Booker didn’t play for the Suns. Both teams have the ammo to make meaningful in-season trades. We haven’t come close to seeing the best between these two teams yet. – 12:43 AM

Gerald Bourguet @GeraldBourguet
I hope we have a healthy Devin Booker, Klay Thompson and Andre Iguodala for Part 3 of Suns-Warriors on Christmas. Got a very fun little rivalry brewing here – 12:30 AM

Tom Ziller @teamziller
RIP the streak. Warriors are so freaking good. Hope Book and Klay play on Christmas. – 12:19 AM

Klay Thompson works out pre-game (in full uniform) in the Anta KT6 Low, as he gets closer to a return.
Earlier today on IG Live, he said he’s worn a headband throughout both of his rehabs and will wear one all season long. PM
