The Warriors star guard Klay Thompson is unlikely to play at all this season as he recovers from a torn ACL, according to coach Steve Kerr.

Thompson tore the ACL in his left knee on June 13 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, and Warriors general manager Bob Myers said last month that the five-time All-Star would be sidelined until at least the All-Star break.

But Kerr, during a recent interview with NBC Sports Bay Area, acknowledged that Thompson "realistically" will miss the entire season because of the expected recovery time required for a torn ACL.

"It's unlikely that he's going to play this year," Kerr told NBC Sports Bay Area, which plans to publish the entire interview later Tuesday. "So we have to understand that.

"You have to look at it realistically," Kerr told NBC Sports Bay Area. "I had an ACL [tear] in college, and I missed a whole season. Generally, an ACL for a basketball player is a full-year recovery, and if it's a full year for Klay, that puts [him] out for the season."

Two other California teams remain the favorites: The Clippers and Lakers, each at +450.
