Warriors' Klay Thompson Out Several Games With Fractured Right Thumb

Warriors' Klay Thompson Out Several Games With Fractured Right Thumb

Though the Warriors are calling it a right thumb sprain, an ESPN report referred to it a fracture.

Thompson sustained the injury during Sunday's loss in Minnesota.

Thompson, the team's No. 3 scorer at 19.7 points per game, is scheduled to undergo reevaluation on March 22.

Thompson withdrew his hand in pain after going for a steal during the second quarter against the Wolves.




Thompson hasn't missed more than five games since becoming a full-time starter during the 2012-13 season.

The Warriors are already dealing with an injury to star point guard Stephen Curry who is slated to have his tweaked right ankle re-evaluated on March 20.

Golden State is now two games behind the Houston Rockets for the No. 1 seed, but the Warriors seem to be taking a cautious approach to bringing their key players back as the postseason looms.

In the meantime, the Warriors (51-16) enter Wednesday's game against the Los Angeles Lakers (31-36) at Oracle Arena with only one All-Star available (Kevin Durant).
