SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Golden State Warriors forward Kevon Looney will miss at least two games because of a hamstring injury.
Looney sat out the entire preseason with a strained right hamstring, then started the season opener Thursday (Friday, PHL time) before dealing with tightness in the hamstring again. He didn't play in the second half of a 141-122 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in the first game at new Chase Center.
The Warriors play Sunday (Monday, PHL time) at Oklahoma City and Monday (Tuesday, PHL time) at New Orleans.
The Warriors said Saturday (Sunday, PHL time) that Looney will be evaluated by a team of specialists because of an "on-going presence of a neuropathic condition in his body, which has a direct correlation to his recent injury." An update on his status will be provided by the team once tests are complete and the Golden State medical staff has a chance to collaborate with the specialists.
Looney played a bulk of the minutes at center during the postseason, but suffered a first costal cartilage fracture on the right side of his rib cage.
