Prior to the 2020 NBA Draft, The Athletic's Shams Charania reported that Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson had suffered a lower leg injury in a workout.

The severity of the injury was not known at the time, but ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski has since reported that Thompson has suffered a season-ending Achilles tear.

Fortunately, Thompson has been told to expect to make a full recovery, Wojnarowski added.

Since Charania's initial report, NBA players have taken to social media to show support for Thompson and wish him a speedy recovery.
