During the 2021 offseason, Klay Thompson’s continued rehab from an Achilles tendon injury he suffered in November will be something to monitor for the Golden State Warriors. On Tuesday, the five-time All-Star shooting guard provided his own edition of an injury update.

Thompson shared a series of photos on Instagram from a shooting session at Chase Center. After admitting he has a long way to go in his return to the court, the three-time champ still called his shooting run in San Francisco a “big milestone.” Following back-to-back injuries, Thompson hasn’t suited up for a game since game six of the 2019 NBA Finals.

During his workout at Chase Center, Thompson sported his “headband Klay” look. Against the Chicago Bulls in 2018, Thompson donned a headband on his way to hitting a record-breaking 14 3-pointers in a single game.

DubNation , I still have a really long , long , LOOOONG way to go . But my goodness, it felt so dang good to get up and down and see the ball go thru the net . Can’t wait to burn em down next year 👌🏽 💦 🔥 !! Big milestone for me this week #jackiemoon #wetfire 📸 @thepeopleloveit

It’s still unclear when Thompson is set to make his long-awaited return to Steve Kerr’s starting lineup. However, seeing the 31-year-old back on the floor looks like a positive step forward.
