Klay Thompson To Miss "Extended Time" With Fractured Thumb

Warriors announce that Klay Thompson has fractured thumb

The discouraging injury news continues for the Warriors.

And like his backcourt mate Stephen Curry, Thompson will be out of the lineup for at least another full week and probably longer, multiple sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area.

The report noted that Thompson is likely to make his return before the end of the month.

On Wednesday, the Warriors announced that Klay Thompson fractured his right thumb in Golden State's 109-103 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. If that's the case, it would be the first extended absence of Thompson's career, one that's seen him miss no more than five games since the 2012-13 season. He is averaging 19.7 points, 2.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds through 66 games this season.

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.
