Looney (ankle) collected two points (1-1 FG), six rebounds, four assists and one block across 20 minutes Tuesday in the Warriors' 114-106 win over the Knicks.
Looney returned to the starting lineup after missing 11 games due to an ankle injury. Golden State already brought back another center in James Wiseman (wrist) from a multi-game absence, so expect the two big men to mostly split minutes at the position moving forward. Draymond Green will also factor into the mix at center when the Warriors roll out small-ball lineups.
Looney (ankle) will return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Looney made it through a full practice Monday and has been cleared to return to action for the first time since spraining his ankle against Boston back on Feb. 2. The Warriors will also get James Wiseman (wrist) back from an 11-game injury absence Tuesday.
Looney (ankle) is questionable for Tuesday's game at New York.
The 25-year-old went through a full practice Monday and appears on track to return from his 11-game absence Tuesday, though he's officially considered questionable. Barring a setback, Looney should be able to rejoin the starting lineup, which would push Draymond Green back to power forward. James Wiseman (wrist) also may be able to play, so he and Looney will likely split the work at center if both players are cleared.
Looney (ankle) went through a full practice Monday and could return to the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Knicks, Nick Freidell of ESPN reports.
The Warriors got great news on the injury front Monday, as both Looney and rookie James Wiseman (wrist) were able to make it through a full practice. Barring a setback in the next 24-plus hours, the expectation is that Looney will return to the starting lineup at center, while Draymond Green shifts back down to power forward. In his string of five starts before the ankle injury, Looney averaged 3.2 points, 5.6 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 0.6 blocks in 16.6 minutes.
Looney (ankle) is out Saturday against the Hornets, but there's a belief that Tuesday against the Knicks could be a target return date, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
A sprained left ankle has kept Looney shelved since Feb. 4, but a return appears imminent even though he'll sit out through the weekend. James Wiseman (wrist) is also expected to return around the same time. More information should arrive as gameday draws closer.
The Warriors announced Wednesday that Looney (ankle) has been taking part in segments of practice and could return to the court during the latter stages of the road trip that begins Friday in Orlando and ends Feb. 24 in Indiana.
The 25-year-old will remain out for Wednesday's home game versus the Heat, and he should be considered unlikely to play in the road back-to-back set this weekend against Orlando and Charlotte. The Warriors' Feb. 23 game against the Knicks at Madison Square Garden could be a realistic target for Looney, who was said to be making good progress in his recovery from the sprained left ankle after being reevaluated Wednesday. Looney has been sidelined by the injury since Feb. 2.
Looney (ankle) will be re-evaluated Wednesday, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Looney will have his checkup sooner than initially expected, as earlier reports indicated he would get his ankle looked at a week from Friday. The team should have a better idea of when he'll be healthy enough to return following Wednesday's examination.
Looney (ankle) said Friday that he expects to be re-evaluated in about a week, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Looney has yet to resume on-court activity since spraining his left ankle in the Warriors' Feb. 2 loss to the Celtics. The big man noted that his ankle is feeling better, and he's hopeful that his return to game action could come soon if he receives positive news once he's re-evaluated. For now, Looney shouldn't be expected to play at any point this week, and with James Wiseman (wrist) also sidelined, Draymond Green looks poised to remain the Warriors' primary center.
Looney (ankle) will be re-evaluated in two weeks, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Looney suffered a sprained ankle during Tuesday night's loss to Boston, and it's severe enough that he'll likely miss at least the next seven or eight games. With James Wiseman (wrist) also sidelined and Marquese Chris (leg) out for the season, the Warriors may have to get creative with their rotations until Wiseman returns. In the short term, Golden State may have no choice but to go small with Draymond Green at the five.
Coach Steve Kerr said after Tuesday's loss to the Celtics he expects Looney to be sidelined "the next couple games," Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.
The 24-year-old suffered the left ankle sprain during the first half Tuesday and is expected to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury Wednesday. James Wiseman (wrist) is already out for the next week, so the Warriors are left with no true centers on the roster with Looney also unavailable. Kerr will need to employ small-ball lineups, with Eric Paschall, Draymond Green and Juan Toscano-Anderson set to see plenty of frontcourt work.
Looney won't return to Tuesday's game against the Celtics due to a left ankle sprain.
Looney had four points (2-5 FG), three rebounds and three assists in 13 minutes during the first half before suffering the injury. It's a rough break for the Warriors, who now have zero available centers since James Wiseman (wrist) is already sidelined. Eric Paschall and Draymond Green should see extra run at center for Golden State, and Juan Toscano-Anderson may also have an increased role in the frontcourt.
Looney is starting Thursday's road game against the Suns, Connor Letourneau of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Looney will draw his third straight start at center for the Warriors. He didn't do much over his last two games, however, as he averaged just two points, six rebounds and four assists across over 15.5 minutes.
Looney recorded two points (1-4 FG), five rebounds, four assists and one block in 19 minutes during the 130-108 win over Minnesota on Monday.
Starting in place of James Wiseman, Looney didn't do much in his 19 minutes, though that's not overly surprising considering the veteran's track record. Even if he continues to start, Looney won't have much value in most formats.
Looney will start Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports.
Looney is set to draw his first start of the season after averaging 3.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.3 assists through 16 contests this season. James Wiseman will come off the bench as a result.
Looney (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Looney was upgraded to probable prior to Sunday's matchup, and he'll officially be active, along with teammate Andrew Wiggins (foot). Over the last five contests, Looney is averaging 4.6 points and 2.6 rebounds over 13.0 minutes per game.
Looney (hip) is probable for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Looney was initially listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup, but coach Steve Kerr said that he'll likely play against Toronto. The team will see how he fares during pregame warmups, but Looney appears to be on the right track.
Looney is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Raptors due to left hip soreness.
Looney has yet to miss a game this season, and over the past three contests he's averaging 6.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 12.0 minutes. If he ends up shelved Sunday, James Wiseman, Draymond Green and Eric Paschall could all see extra run.
Looney registered 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists across 12 minutes during Monday's win over the Kings.
Looney took advantage of his limited action during this blowout victory, posting a season high in scoring with 11 points after he had scored a combined total of six points across his three previous games. The 24-year-old backup center is averaging 4.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game across 14.7 minutes, so he isn't going to be on the radar of many fantasy managers.
Looney finished with two points (1-1 FG), five boards and two assists in 17 minutes of a 137-122 win against Portland on Sunday.
Looney matched a season high in rebounds in the contest but otherwise had a quiet night in his team's win. The sixth year man remains mostly a depth option on his team, and with Golden State using most of the bench, he's being relied on more to give stars a breather than contributing to the offense. The Warriors face the Kings on Monday.
Looney ended with eight points (3-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 18 minutes during Saturday's 107-105 preseason victory over Denver.
Looney got the starting nod for the Warriors, a role that could stick heading into the regular season. James Wiseman (undisclosed) remains sidelined but should be ready to go come opening night. Both he and Marquese Chriss will be battling Looney for the center minutes, making all three of them risky fantasy options. Of all three players, Wiseman is likely to have the most upside, at least in the long term.
