Looney underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a core-muscle injury. The big man was nursing a hip injury at the time the NBA season was suspended in March, but this latest procedure addresses a core-muscle issue that contributed to him missing a total of 45 games during the 2019-20 season. According to the Warriors' official news release, Looney is expected to begin rehabbing immediately with the expectation that he'll be ready for the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
Looney (hip) will be re-evaluated in three weeks. Looney has been experiencing "ongoing symptoms" so the organization has opted to give him an extended period of time to rest. In Looney's absence, Marquese Chriss, Draymond Green (knee) and Dragan Bender figure to hold down the minutes at center.
Looney (hip) won't play Saturday against the 76ers. Looney will miss a fourth straight matchup as he continues to work back from hip soreness. His next chance to play arrives Tuesday against the Clippers.
Looney (hip) won't play in Thursday's tilt with the Raptors, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. Looney's absence will extend to a third consecutive contest as he continues to nurse a sore hip. Expect Marquese Chriss to see a boost in run in Looney's stead.
Looney (hip) will not play Tuesday against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Looney's hip is acting up again, so he'll miss a second straight game, while the Warriors will also be without Draymond Green. Expect Marquese Chriss to serve as Golden State's primary center.
