Kevon Looney suffered a fracture in collarbone in Game 2 vs. Raptors

Warriors, Kevon Looney

The Golden State Warriors defeated the Toronto Raptors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, but lost Kevon Looney to injury. Looney suffered what the team called a chest injury, but was unable to return to the game.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Looney has been diagnosed with a fracture in his collarbone.

Wojnarowski reports that Looney suffered a ‘non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture’ and that ‘there isn’t great optimism on a return this season.’

That’s a huge blow for the Warriors, as they’ve been dealing with injuries all postseason long. First it was DeMarcus Cousins going down in the first round with the injured quad. Kevin Durant then suffered a calf strain in the second round. Now, Looney is out indefinitely for the Warriors, only two games after Cousins’ return from his own injury.

If this is the last we’ve seen of Looney in the playoffs, he’ll finish the postseason averaging 7.2 points and 4.6 rebounds on 73 percent shooting from the field. Looney was spectacular in the wake of Cousins’ injury against the Clippers, as well as against the Rockets and Blazers.
