The Golden State wars will be without Angelo Russell for Wednesday's game against the Houston Rockets, while Draymond Green is ruled out for the whole trip in three games, coach Steve Kerr told reporters Wednesday.
Russell will miss his third straight game as he suffered a broken right ankle on Friday against the San Antonio Spurs. Kerr said Russell could return for Friday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Kerr stated that Green, who received a torn ligament in his left index finger on Friday, did not travel with the team and was ruled out for the next three games – against the Rockets, Timberwolves and Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Warriors, who are 2-5 at their worst start since the 2011-12 season, will continue to launch Ky Bowman, Jordan Poole, Eric Paschall, Willie Cauley-Stein and Glenn Robinson III as of Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Warriors have said that the Kevon Looney Center, which has missed six games with nerve-related symptoms, has undergone various tests and its status will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Looney missed the entire preseason due to a strained right knee, then returned to start the season for the Clippers' 141-122 loss on Oct. 24, but he came out for the second half as a precautionary measure with tightness in the knee.
He s recently been confined to controlled trainings with teaching staff and did not travel with the team Tuesday to Houston.
For missiles guard Eric Gordon is ruled out with a knee injury.
