Klay Thompson tore the ACL in his left knee in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Golden State Warriors ended up winning that game, but lost the series in six games, and Klay hasn't been heard from or seen since.

Until Monday, that is. Thompson was spotted at the store, walking around with the help of a cane.

Klay will reportedly have surgery on his injured knee later this week, and then starts the long road to recovery, hoping for a healthy return in February or March of 2020.

As he heads into free agency, it's widely expected that Klay will return to the Warriors on a five-year max deal, with the early portion of that deal including months of rehab.

Once Thompson returns to form, he surely plans to help to Warriors vie for another NBA title in 2020. Regardless, it's good to see him up and moving around, even if he needs a cane to do it.
