Klay Thompson out for at least four games with sprained right thumb

Klay Thompson out for at least four games with sprained right thumb

As of Wednesday morning, Thompson remains questionable for the night's matchup with the Lakers, but that's a downgrade from his initial listing, and it seems rather likely that he'll end up being held out.

And like his backcourt mate Stephen Curry, Thompson will be out of the lineup for at least another full week and probably longer, multiple sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area.

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

He could miss seven games.

Thompson was named to the Western Conference All-Star team for a fourth consecutive season last month. He is averaging 19.7 points, 2.7 assists and 3.8 rebounds through 66 games this season.

The injuries keep coming for the defending champion Golden State Warriors.

Curry is expected to miss at least another week with the sprained ankle injury that has sidelined him since suffering it on March 8 (Mar. 9, PHL time).
