Klay Thompson    G  Warriors

 

 

Klay Thompson said that "hopefully" he will re-sign with the Warriors. Thompson won't have an opportunity to test free agency until July of 2019, but he is already getting asked questions about potentially leaving Golden State. While being the offensive focal point of another squad would be ideal for his fantasy production, it sounds like Klay is content to play his role on the stacked Warriors. "Playing for one team your whole career is definitely special. Only so many guys have done it in professional sports, so it’ll be a goal of mine," said Thompson. "Hopefully it all works out."

Klay Thompson finished with 25 points in Saturday's 122-105 victory against the visiting Spurs. Thompson hit 10-of-14 from the field, including 5-of-6 from behind the 3-point line, while adding three rebounds. Whatever was bugging him at the end of January, when he was off with his shot, is apparently in the rear-view mirror. He has hit two or more 3-points in each of his past six outings while averaging 19.7 PPG, 4.2 RPG and 2.8 APG.

Thompson supplied 16 points (7-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt), five assists, one rebound and two steals across 36 minutes in Saturday's 115-108 loss to the Nuggets. Thompson served in his typical complementary role, checking in third in scoring on the Warriors behind superstar teammates Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant. The 27-year-old enjoyed a third straight strong shooting night, and he's now drained 61.4 percent of his 44 attempts over that span. The young sharpshooter is undeniably prone to the occasional single-digit scoring tally, but he's often been able to at least partly make up for those downturns with the best rebounding numbers (4.1 per game) of his seven seasons.

Klay Thompson went for 20 points, six rebounds and three assists over 35 minutes in Friday's 119-104 win at Sacramento. Thompson was 8-of-12 from the field, including 4-of-8 from behind the arc. This is more like it. After a rough patch near the end of January he has back-to-back games with 20 or more points for the first time since a four-game run from Dec. 29-Jan. 4. He appears to be back on track with seven triples over the past two outings, too.

Thompson provided 20 points (8-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes during Friday's 119-104 win over the Kings. Thompson has another good outing on Friday after being one of the only bright spots for the Warriors in an embarrassing loss to the Jazz earlier in the week. Thompson had a slightly below-average January, as he averaged 19.3 points, four rebounds and 2.5 assists in 13 games, which all fall short of his season averages. Thompson remains a premier target at shooting guard despite his propensity for erratic production from time to time.

Thompson produced 27 points (12-17 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and two steals across 31 minutes in Tuesday's 129-99 loss to the Jazz. Thompson's effort was the lone bright spot among the Warriors' Big Three, as Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant shot a combined 9-for-26, including 1-for-12 from three-point range. The 27-year-old Thompson's scoring total served as a team high and was a particularly welcome sight following his seven-point, 3-for-12 effort versus the Celtics last Saturday. The seven-year veteran has alternated strong shooting efforts with some rough offensive nights recently, as he's shot 54.5 percent or better on three occasions and under 30.0 percent in two other instances over the last six contests. Factoring in Tuesday's production, he finishes the month with averages of 19.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 34.9 minutes over 13 games.

Klay Thompson scored a team-high 27 points in a blowout loss to the Jazz on Tuesday. You could argue that Thompson and JaVale McGee were the only Warriors who showed up tonight. Thompson hit 12-of-17 shots in 31 minutes, adding six rebounds, three assists, two steals and three triples. He's been all over the place lately, but he's still been a top-30 player in 9-category leagues on the season.

Klay Thompson posted just seven points across 36 minutes in Saturday's 109-105 win against the Celtics. The Dubs didn't need Thompson to be at his best, as Steph Curry was ridiculous in taking the team on his back in the marquee matchup. Thompson hit just 3-of-12 from the field, including 0-of-4 from behind the 3-point line. He had made at least one 3-pointer in 95 straight games until Jan. 12. Now, he has three donuts in the category across his past eight outings. Despite his uncharacteristic long distance struggles lately, he continues to give fantasy owners third-round value in standard formats.

Thompson totaled seven points (3-12 FG, 0-4 3PT), four rebounds, three assists and two blocks in a 109-105 win over the Boston Celtics on Saturday. Thompson is mired in a huge slump right now, as he's failed to crack double-digits in scoring in three of his last four games. In addition, he's only surpassed 20 points scored in three of his last 10 games. The shots and role are still there though, as he's still averaging over 35 minutes and 15 shots a game this month. As long as he continues to get opportunities like that, Thompson will get out of this slump with his uncanny ability to shoot the ball.

Thompson scored 25 points (9-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt) while adding five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in 36 minutes during Thursday's 126-113 win over the Timberwolves. Kevin Durant and Steph Curry combined for 20 assists on the night, with Thompson being the main beneficiary of their largesse. The 27-year-old is averaging 19.7 points, 3.8 boards, 3.2 three-pointers and 2.4 assists in January while shooting 48.6 percent from beyond the arc, and Thompson could see even more open looks in the second half with Durant in particular taking on more distribution duties for the Warriors.
