Warriors' disabled player exception for Klay set to expire originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

The Warriors in late November were granted a disabled player exception for the season-ending Achilles injury to Klay Thompson.

That $9.3 million DPE is set to expire Monday night at 9:00 p.m. PT, and the expectation is that it will go unused.

This shouldn't come as a surprise:

"Because the rules related to disable player exceptions are somewhat restrictive and the exceptions themselves often aren’t worth a lot, they often simply expire without being used," Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors wrote.

The Warriors will make a transaction Monday, however, as Gary Payton II reportedly will be signing a second 10-day contract.

Golden State enters Monday night's game against the Philadelphia 76ers tied for ninth place in the Western Conference.

The Warriors are two games behind the No. 8 seed Memphis Grizzlies, who play at the Denver Nuggets on Monday.
