The hits just keep coming to the Golden State Warriors. A day after the team announced that Stephen Curry would be out for at least a week with an ankle injury, it was announced that Klay Thompson would miss even longer after sustaining a fracture in his right thumb.

Thompson will be reevaluated next Thursday, March 22, meaning he’ll miss at least the next four games.

Unfortunately, Thompson is likely to be out a bit longer than that. Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic reported that the injury is worse than the team initially feared, and that “There is a growing concern that Thompson’s injury . . . could cost him some weeks for it to heal and that it’s not a day-to-day thing.”

The news is a bit surprising, since Thompson never left Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Timberwolves after the injury. He did get the thumb taped, but he stayed in the game, leading most of us to believe that he was just fine.

Hopefully the fracture is mild, as the playoffs start in exactly one month. The Warriors are going to need the best backcourt in the world if they plan on repeating as NBA champions.

Steve Kerr says ‘there’s no way’ Stephen Curry plays in first round .
Warriors head coach Steve Kerr squelched any lingering hopes Sunday that Stephen Curry could play in the first round of the playoffs. “Oh, there’s no way he’s playing in the first round,” Kerr said before Sunday evening’s game against Utah. “There’s no way. He’s being re-evaluated in three weeks, so we’ve got to be ready for playing without him.”Curry is scheduled to have the sprained MCL in his left knee re-evaluated on April 14, which seemingly left open the possibility that he could return for Game 1 of a first-round series. The Warriors, however, aren’t willing to rush the face of the franchise back.
