Less than a week before Sunday’s game against the Cavaliers? This seems more reliable.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:
There’s optimism Golden Warriors guard Klay Thompson will make his return vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers on Sunday, sources tell ESPN. A final decision is expected once the Warriors return from a two-game trip on Friday.

After missing more than two full seasons due to injury, Thompson can’t be assumed to pick up where he left off as a star. But his still-impressive-looking 3-point shooting fits nearly any context. Thompson also knows Golden State coach Steve Kerr’s system well and has great chemistry with Stephen Curry and Draymond Green.
The Warriors have already positioned themselves as the team to beat. Thompson returning soon, with time to get on track before the playoffs, makes them even more dangerous.
