NBA Rumors: Warriors' Kevon Looney Could Return During NBA Finals

Programming note: Watch the NBA Finals pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Friday at 4 p.m., streaming live on the MyTeams app.

And then there was a plot twist.

It turns out that Warriors big man Kevon Looney might not be done for the season after all:

On Monday night, Golden State announced that Looney is out indefinitely after sustaining the non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture during Game 2 of the NBA Finals against the Raptors.

On Tuesday, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr told reporters that the 23-year old would miss the rest of the series.

The Warriors certainly missed Looney's defensive presence in the Game 3 loss on Wednesday night, as Toronto shot over 52 percent from the field and nearly 45 percent from 3-point territory.

Through Game 1 against the Raptors, Looney was averaging 7.6 points and 4.8 rebounds in 20.9 minutes per game during the playoffs.

Game 4 is on Friday night at Oracle Arena, with Game 5 back in Toronto on Monday. A potential Game 6 would be next Thursday in Oakland.
