Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said that shooting guard Klay Thompson could miss the entire 2019-2020 season as he recovers from a serious knee injury.

Thompson suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament during the NBA Finals in June, and Kerr said he realistically faces up to a year on the sidelines. Previously it was thought thatThompson may be ready to return towards the end of the regular season after the All-Star break.

The Warriors reached five straight NBA Finals between 2015 and 2019 but head into this season with the injury to Thompson and the departure of Kevin Durant.
