Finally caught up with Jason Thompson and chatted briefly with him about the fracture in his right big toe.

Thompson suffered the injury June 10. It will keep him in a walking boot four to six weeks.

"I was just working out and knowing me I was thinking it was soreness or something like that, just kind of playing through it and stuff," Thompson said. "Next thing I told (trainer) Pete (Youngman) - I already planned to come out here before the lockout so I could use the facilities - so it was perfect timing to come in here and get an X-ray."

Thompson was back in Sacramento June 14 and had the X-ray the following day. Thompson is in good spirits. Thompson has worked out in a pool and continued to stay in shape with the injury.
