Warriors Klay Thompson has fractured thumb on shooting hand

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson has suffered a fractured right thumb that will keep him sidelined for at least two weeks, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

The injury occurred during the Warriors' 103-109 loss to the Wolves on Sunday.

Steph Curry has nursed a right-ankle injury all season, and as a result, he has only played in 50 of Golden State's 67 games this season.


Thompson has missed only one game this season, on January 10 (Jan. 11, PHL time) against the LA Clippers for rest.

Thompson, 28, is averaging 19.7 points and shooting at a 44 percent clip from distance on the season. As of Wednesday morning, Thompson remains questionable for the night's matchup with the Lakers, but that's a downgrade from his initial listing, and it seems rather likely that he'll end up being held out.

The Warriors said Curry will be re-evaluated prior to their game with the Spurs on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time). Forward Andre Iguodala (left wrist sprain) will be available for the game, however.
