The Golden State Warriors have sent two players, shooting guard Klay Thompson and center James Wiseman, to their G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors, the team announced in a released statement on Sunday.

“Another step in Klay Thompson’s return process: The Golden State Warriors assigned Thompson to G League Santa Cruz for increased practice reps, sources tell me and @Anthony Slater,” Shams Charania of The Athletic wrote on Twitter.

“Thompson, who has missed the last two seasons due to a torn left ACL and a torn right Achilles, and Wiseman, who underwent successful surgery to repair a right meniscal tear on April 15, will practice with the team in Santa Cruz today,” the team’s statement added.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr said this move was part of the ongoing rehabilitation for both Thompson and Wiseman.

“Klay will be scrimmaging, and James will continue his work,” Kerr said before Sunday’s game against the LA Clippers. “I don’t think (Wiseman) is scrimmaging yet, but Klay will be doing 5-on-5.”

Thompson’s teammate Stephen Curry wished nothing but the best for his Splash Brother’s partner to get back on the court soon.

“Him getting closer to than he’s ever been to getting back on the floor, I kind of predicted this would be the hardest part of his journey,” Curry said on Friday, as per SF Gate. He’s got the basketball back in his hands every day, he’s feeling like himself, he’s playing pickup and is around our practices.”
