The plague of injuries that is taking over the Golden State Warriors has added a new victim. According to The Athletic, the sprained thumb on the right hand suffered by Klay Thompson against the Minnesota Timberwolves is more serious than anticipated. He will be out several games and although he’s expected to return at the end of the month, nothing is certain. He will be re-evaluated on March 22.

It will be the first long-term injury for Klay, who only missed one game this season. Since becoming a starter in the 2012-13 season, he has never been away more than five games. That same year he played the full course and the following 81 of 82. In 2014-15 he played 77. And 80 and 78 in the next two.

His absence is one more for a desperate Steve Kerr who has seen how the quintet with which he won the ring has been out again and again, adding the missed games of the starting five, we have a total of 45 games to date. To this we must add a second unit that has lost Andre Iguodala twelve matches and nine for Shaun Livingston.

Starting Five Injuries

Player Games Played* Games Missed
Klay Thompson 66 1
Kevin Durant 59 8
Draymond Green 59 8
Zaza Pachulia 56 11
Stephen Curry 50 17
Total 45
*67 played until 14/03.

A situation that will not change for tonight’s game against the Lakers. Stephen Curry (right ankle) Draymond Green (right shoulder), David West (right arm), Patrick McCaw (left wrist) and, now, Thompson are discarded. Iguodala and Bell are in doubt for the appointment against the Angelenos.
