Klay Thompson and James Wiseman remained back in the Bay Area during this four-day Warriors road trip. Klay is increasing the intensity of his scrimmaging, Wiseman is still not yet cleared for 5-on-5 contact work. – 2:07 PM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Per Kerr, Klay and Wiseman are not on the roadtrip. Klay is doing 5×5 scrimmages, Wiseman continues his work, Kerr doesn’t think Wiseman is scrimmaging yet, he does not ask team doctors daily. They’ll tell him when Wise is ready for next thing. – 2:07 PM

Malika Andrews @malika_andrews

Adam Lauridsen @GSWFastBreak
I wrote this a year ago, and how Klay has handled himself since has only made me believe it more. “Klay and the Warriors’ core are not defined by their good or bad luck, but by what they’ve done with it.” blogs.mercurynews.com/warriors/2020/…1:05 AM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Klay Thompson is just now walking off the court back to the locker room. He’s accompanied by Steve Kerr, Steph Curry and Draymond Green who were all out there talking with him. – 12:55 AM

Kerith Burke @KerithBurke
Klay is still out on the bench with a towel on his head and a staff member talking to him. – 12:46 AM

Klay Thompson has not left the Warriors’ bench. The remaining fans are chanting THOMP-SON! THOMP-SON! And he was just soaking it in, nodding his head to the chants – 12:28 AM
