OAKLAND -- Unfortunate news for the Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee native Kevon Looney, as the forward could miss the remainder of the NBA Finals.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, there isn't great optimism surrounding a return for Looney this season.
Further detail on Looney injury, per sources: non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture. There could be more evaluation, but there isn't great optimism on a return this season. DeMarcus Cousins' emergence in Game 2 looms even bigger for the Warriors. https://t.co/acW7PnWQzm— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 4, 2019
Looney has played a nice role for the two-time defending NBA Champions, giving them an average of just over 20 minutes per game.
In addition, the former first round pick was averaging 12.7 points per game and 8.1 rebounds in the playoffs.
The series between the Toronto Raptors and Golden State Warriors is tied 1-1.
Game 3 will be Wednesday at Oracle Arena in Oakland.
