But there is reason for optimism on his progress, as Stadium’s Shams Charania reported Thursday that Thompson could be cleared for full practice “over the next month or so.” “From there it’s just going to be about him ramping up, him rehabbing and continue to figure out at what pace do (the Warriors) want to bring him back and when do they feel comfortable with him back,” Charania continued.

More on this storyline

“It’s not just going to be he gets cleared for practice after two major injuries and then just goes into playing. So, there will be a ramp-up period. I would look somewhere in the December-January range for his return. But the Warriors will be cautious. They’ve been doing a lot of data and science and leaning a lot on data and science, I’m told. So I would expect them to continue to do that. “But for him to be cleared for full practice over the next month, that is optimistic news. And then you have him back in the lineup. Jordan Poole has been playing amazing basketball so far in the preseason, so there is hope for this Warriors season.” -via NBC Sports / October 15, 2021
