Klay Thompson To Miss "Extended Time" With Fractured Thumb

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson (11) drives to the basket past Minnesota Timberwolves guard Jamal Crawford (11) in the first half at Target Center.

Though the Warriors are calling it a right thumb sprain, an ESPN report referred to it a fracture.

Thompson hasn't missed more than five games since becoming a full-time starter during the 2012-13 season. He will be re-evaluated next Tuesday.

Thompson is averaging 19.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 44.3 percent from three-point range this season.

Golden State will also be without Stephen Curry for at least one more week after he re-aggravated an ankle injury last week. Curry, Thompson, Jordan Bell, Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, Patrick McCaw, and David West are all recovering from injuries. In fact, he's missed a total of 12 games over the past six seasons. Curry will be re-evaluated before Monday's game at San Antonio.

This could very well be a monumental blow for the Warriors' hopes of earning the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference.
