Last week, the Golden State Warriors saw their run of consecutive titles come to an end with a 4-2 series loss to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals.

While the Raptors were the better team in the series, it will be marred by the fact that Kevin Durant played only a handful of minutes in Game 5 before suffering a ruptured Achilles.

Just two days later, Klay Thompson tore his ACL in the third quarter of Game 6 - which the Warriors lost, thus losing the series.

Six days after the series concluded, Thompson has yet to have surgery.

Golden State general manager Bob Myers revealed Thompson is still waiting to have surgery.

What he's waiting for remains a mystery, however.

The Warriors star has a lengthy recovery process in front of him and likely won't be ready to return until February or March - according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

There isn't a rush for Thompson to undergo surgery, but he quicker he does, the quicker he'll be able to return to the floor.

Despite suffering the torn ACL, the Warriors are expected to offer Thompson a sizable contract extension. Thompson's father revealed he plans to stay with Golden State.

Stay tuned for the latest.
