Golden State guard Klay Thompson will sit out against East-leading Atlanta with a sprained right ankle. The West-leading Warriors say Thompson will be re-evaluated in seven to 10 days. USA Today Sports

Mychal Thompson, the father of Warriors guard Klay Thompson, is unhappy that the team was able to rest healthy players including his son at Denver on Friday. “This is a disgrace to the fans,” Mychal told 95.7 The Game as he was in town to broadcast the Los Angeles Lakers game Monday. “It is a disservice to the fans. “My cousin has nine kids. He bought his tickets. He didn’t ask Klay for his tickets. He bought his tickets to take his kids to the Denver game for the first time for them to get to see Klay play in person. He gets there. No Klay.” Contra Costa Times

Kerr is making sure his Warriors get plenty of sleep, too, thanks to a recent session with a sleep expert from Stanford who visited practice. "I know how important recovery is," All-Star guard Klay Thompson said. "We play such a long season. And I love to sleep, so it was good hearing that if you want to be at optimal peak performance you've got to get your eight hours, or at least try to. You can't be hanging out long hours at night."

This year, Thompson’s improvement is due in large part to the evolution of his game, but he and Curry are also getting easier shots. “No one ever knew how good Klay really was last year,” says one opposing coach. “Because Mark never ran any plays for him.” Which, in retrospect, may help explain why the Warriors opted not to trade Thompson for Kevin Love. Perhaps they knew something the rest of us didn’t after all. Sports Illustrated

Warriors guard Klay Thompson admitted that he was “envious” of Stephen Curry and that when he thinks back to going down to his teammate in the Three-Point Contest, he’ll be “a little ticked.” Thompson is that confident in his shot and was bothered he didn’t come through with a golden opportunity to top Curry at Barclays Center on Saturday. And Thompson, who afterward tweeted Curry is the “greatest shooter in the history of the game,” wants his rematch in the contest. Contra Costa Times

“I’ll be back, and hopefully against Steph,” Thompson told reporters.” He got me this year, man, but I’m looking forward to getting him.” Thompson struggled in the championship-round, managing only 14 points for the low score out of any competitor in any round. Curry scored 27. “I think I could have beat him,” Thompson said. “I could have gotten 28, but that’s alright. That’s the way the ball bounces, and I’m proud of him. I’m sure we’ll go against each other another time in our career.” Contra Costa Times
