Warriors announce that Klay Thompson has fractured thumb

Warriors guard Klay Thompson has reportedly fractured his right thumb and will be re-evaluated on March 22, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

It appears the latter may be in jeopardy as well, as Marcus Thompson of The Athletic reports that the thumb injury Klay Thompson sustained during Sunday's 109-103 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves could be worse than originally anticipated.

The news comes a day after the Warriors learned they will be without two-time NBA Most Valuable Player Stephen Curry for at least another week with a sore right ankle that has kept hime out since last Thursday.

Thompson, 28, is averaging 19.7 points and shooting at a 44 percent clip from distance on the season. In fact, he's missed a total of 12 games over the past six seasons. Curry, Thompson, Jordan Bell, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, Patrick McCaw, and David West are all recovering from injuries. Curry will be re-evaluated before Monday's game at San Antonio.

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.
