  • Clay Thompson suffered a right leg injury working out in Southern California today and will undergo test.

  • The severity of the injury is not known.

  • Thompson had been making his way back from an A C L tear in his left leg.

  • He suffered the 2019 finals and cost him all of last season.

  • Let's bring in Adrian Ward Yanovsky with much more on this story.

  • What more can you tell us?

  • What about this injury?

  • Kevin Clay Thompson was working out in Southern California today when, when he suffered what was described to me is a lower right leg injury on he's going toe.

  • Undergo tests here in the next few days.

  • I'm told it is immediately unclear the severity off the issue of the injury.

  • Now he It was his left a c l that he missed all of the 2019 and 2000 and 20 season, the injury he had suffered, uh, in the previous n b A Finals.

  • But right now that they're still waiting to get a sense of how serious this injury might be.

  • Kevin Well, it's the big story.

  • Of course.

  • The Timberwolves are on the clock and a draft that is really unknown in the top three.

  • The Warriors pic number two.

  • How could this injury impact what the Warriors do tonight?

  • I think it's too early to tell Kevin.

  • They don't know what they have, certainly with this injury with Clay Thompson.

  • But certainly understand when you're drafting a teenager at the top of the draft, it's a It's a long view, not based off a ninja ary in the short term.

  • But listen, if they're very serious about Lemelle, lowball it, too.

  • If he's there.

  • James Weissman.

  • They were still working through those working through those today, so remains to be seen how it's gonna impact them tonight in the draft.

  • Okay, woes from the draft room as we get ready for the N ba virtual draft right here on the campus of ESPN, let's go to say again, Whoa, uh, keeping track of breaking news from all different angles here with us on SportsCenter.

  • Hey, standing by if need be.

  • Also standing by now live is our Stephen A.

  • Smith and Stephen A.

  • Less than an hour ago, you and I were here on SportsCenter talking about what the Warriors should do with that number two overall pick.

  • We're talking about the big man, James Wiseman and how great of a fit he'd be with, ah, healthy Clay Thompson.

  • Steph Curry, Draymond Green as watch said, You heard him.

  • We don't know that much right now, but your first reaction when you hear an injury to a leg of Clay Thompson, what do you say?

  • This is nightmarish.

  • This is nightmarish.

  • All championship hopes are out the window.

  • You need both.

  • You can't have clay without stuff.

  • You can't have stuff without Clay and talk championship.

  • You could talk playoffs.

  • You could talk excitement.

  • You could talk box office appeal, but you can't talk championship having one without the other.

  • You need both of them.

  • This is the greatest shooting backcourt we have ever seen in the history of basketball.

  • Do you know that Clay Thompson has never shot less than 40% from three point range in his career ever?

  • That's who we're talking about here.

  • We constantly talking about the two time M V P that is Steph Curry.

  • We constantly recognize him because he could shoot off the dribble, not just standing still with a set up shot.

  • It's off the dribble.

  • He could create his own shot better than Clay Thompson.

  • We constantly call him the greatest shooter ever.

  • Let's understand something his backcourt make picked up.

  • It is one of the toe to the history of Apple.

  • I'm coming.

  • Reggie Miller, Ray Allen, Allan Houston, Downtown Freddie Brown from the Seattle SuperSonics in the seventies.

  • For crying out loud.

  • Ricky Pierce, Dale Ellis, Dell Curry.

  • I don't give a damn what shooting you find.

  • Clay Thompson is one of the top five shooters in the history of basketball.

  • And for this man to keep coming off in a C l agree on his left leg to now maybe have injured his right leg.

  • Uh, it Oh, I'm very worried.

  • I'm hoping, I hope.

  • But I'm very worried because I'm a fan of watching these brothers play, and I don't want to see either of them hurt.

  • I don't want to see either of them gone, and I'm very worried right now, period.

  • So that's why use the word nightmarish.

  • And, of course, even if you're not a warriors fan, just the watching the product that they produce for so many years there together that says it all we do need to continue to point out.

  • Yes, it was that left leg on which he tour that a c l and the finals in 2020 19.

  • I forget what year it is.

  • 2019.

  • The injury that we're reporting now that was just reporting is lower right leg.

  • Either way, it doesn't sound like great news.

  • It still leg injury.

  • And then you wonder, because potential overcompensation as you're trying to heal that a c l.

  • In the meantime, the words have to focus on that.

  • They sell the stuff on the draft to write Stephen, and they have business to do it.

  • Number two tonight, but back.

  • No, it doesn't change anything.

  • It doesn't change anything with the draft.

  • Say you still take James Wiseman.

  • You still take the seven footer who is an athletic, an athlete who could rebound, who could run the floor.

  • Who's a presence at the basket to pair with Draymond Hill because you gotta Andrew Wiggins and because you still have Wiggins who?

  • Joe Lake up The owner, the CEO for the Golden State Warriors, came on first take told me this morning he's still high on.

  • I don't know why considering the inconsistency of Wiggins, but that's neither here nor there.

  • I'll be nice tonight.

  • We'll talk about that another day.

  • Bottom line.

  • If anything happens to Clay, you still need another guard or guard slash small forward.

  • To put in the backcourt that can guard some threes is, well, it's, um, tools toe play alongside Steph Curry.

  • They'd be a playoff team.

  • They'll be.

  • They'll make some noise.

  • We have no questions about that, but in terms of championship, because before this past season, five straight years they went to the finals.

  • In terms of championship, there is no championship.

  • Without clay, there is no championship Without Steph, you need both or no championship.

  • It's just that simple.

  • Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
