Klay Thompson suffered a torn ACL injury in the NBA Finals loss to the Toronto Raptors this past June. The Golden State Warriors' All-Star guard will miss a sizable portion of the 2019-20 season as a result.

Players have rushed back from torn ACL injuries before, but the Warriors are going to be patient with their star shooting guard.

Golden State announced this afternoon that Thompson is doing fine and there will be an update on him at the All-Star break, meaning he'll miss at least 50-plus games.

"The Warriors already ruling Klay Thompson out until at least the All-Star break means he'll miss at least the first 55 games," Anthony Slater tweeted.

Thompson suffered a torn ACL injury in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.

Thompson agreed to a five-year, $190 million contract with the Warriors this summer. The Warriors were intent on keeping Thompson, Stephen Curry and Draymond Green as they head into the post-Kevin Durant era. Golden State added D'Angelo Russell in a sign-and-trade with Brooklyn.

The Warriors open the 2019-20 season on Thursday, Oct. 24 against the Clippers.
