Klay Thompson called GM Bob Myers earlier this afternoon and talked to him about his injury. Bob Myers gave this account of his conversation with Klay:

Hopefully, this injury to Klay isn’t something very serious. The Warriors were set to make a comeback to the big stage, with the Splash brothers coming together after a whole year.
