The good news is Thompson could start practicing with the Warriors next month, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium, but that does not change the return timeline, he adds.
"I'm told Klay Thompson will be cleared for full practice over the next month or so."

As Charania notes, the Warriors will take it slow with Thompson’s return as he comes off two major injuries, a torn ACL and a ruptured Achilles. Even when he returns to games, there will be a strict minutes limit at first that will climb as he shows he can handle it.
The goal is to have All-NBA level Thompson by the start of the playoffs in April.
