The Warriors will reportedly be making their final decision on Friday after returning from their two-game trip. Per Sam Quinn of CBS Sports, when Thompson returns, Coach Steve Kerr will insert the sharpshooter into the starting lineup. As of December, Thompson’s main focus was conditioning so that he could be a high-minute starter with a “smaller role than he is used to.”
Thompson recently went viral after knocking down 24 straight three-pointers in practice on Sunday. The Warriors’ (28-7) next contest is against the Heat (23-14).
