Warriors C Looney out at least two games

The Golden State Warriors have ruled out center Kevon Looney for the next two games as he deals with tightness in his right hamstring. He'll miss Sunday's contest against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Monday's game versus the New Orleans Pelicans.

Looney missed the preseason with a strained right hamstring, but started the season opener against the Los Angeles Clippers before sitting out the second half. The Warriors say that Looney will meet with a "team of specialists to evaluate the ongoing presence of a neuropathic condition in his body, which has a direct correlation to his recent injury" and be re-evaluated afterward.

"I'm feeling really, really bad for Kevon," Warriors coach Steve Kerr said, per the San Francisco Chronicle. "He's such a great human being, great player. He's one of my favorite guys I've ever coached because he's not just low maintenance, he's zero maintenance. You just want a guy like that to flourish."

Looney, 23, was the 30th overall pick by the Warriors in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft. He's averaged 4.5 points and 3.8 rebounds in 205 games (33 starts). --Field level Media
