Golden State Warriors big man Marquese Chriss will reportedly miss the remainder of the season after suffering a broken right leg, per The Athletic‘s Shams Charania.

After short stints with the Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, and Cleveland Cavaliers, Chriss found his way to the Bay Area back in October of 2019. He was waived midway through last season to make room for Damion Lee but was reinstated back to the lineup only after a week he was cut.

In 59 appearances for the Warriors last season, Chriss averaged career-high norms of 9.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 1.1 blocks as he juggled roles of being both a starter and an off the bench player for the team all throughout their campaign.

Heading to his second season with Dub Nation, Chriss was poised to emerge as one of the team's key front liners. However, the Washington product saw limited action in the Warriors' season opener against the Brooklyn Nets where he produced nine points and eight rebounds in 12 minutes. His productivity eventually dipped in their second game against the Milwaukee Bucks where he was only limited to four points and five rebounds through 14 minutes played.

His season-ending injury could deal further damage to an already depleted Warriors lineup that is left to bank on the services of rookie James Wiseman and Kevon Looney as their primary big men in the lineup. Hopefully, Marquese Chriss will be able to have a swift recovery and get back on the court as soon as possible for the Warriors next season.
