The Golden State Warriors have been in no rush for Klay Thompson to return partly because of how well they have played this season, but we now have a better idea of when we might see the sharpshooter return to action.

Thompson took part in 5-on-5 scrimmages with the Warriors this week, and Shams Charania of The Athletic reported on Sunday that the five-time All-Star has been cleared to fully participate in practice. Thompson has been given the green light to practice full-time with the Warriors. He could potentially return the week before Christmas, according to Charania.

Thompson has not played in a game since June 2019, when he tore his ACL. He missed the entire 2019-20 season. He then ruptured his Achilles last November and was forced to sit out the entire 2020-21 season as well.

The Warriors have been one of the biggest surprises of the NBA this season. They entered Sunday with a league-best 14-2 record. They weren’t going to rush Thompson back to begin with, but their outstanding play has removed any pressure they might have faced.
