Klay Thompson out for at least four games with sprained right thumb

Golden State Warriors star guard Klay Thompson has suffered a fractured right thumb and will be re-evaluated next week after missing four games, the reigning National Basketball Association champions said Wednesday.

Already without Stephen Curry, who is now recovering from an ankle injury, the Dubs are very thin in their backcourt, with Quin Cook and Shaun Livingston receiving extended playing time.

Thompson was named to the Western Conference All-Star team for a fourth consecutive season last month. That opens up the possibility that one or both of the players will return when the Warriors play the Atlanta Hawks on March 23.

Slater reports that there's "growing concern" within the organization that Thompson, who sustained a sprained thumb Sunday against Minnesota, could end up missing weeks, rather than days.

Also set to miss Wednesday's home game against the Los Angeles Lakers was forward Draymond Green with a sore right shoulder. The Warriors said Curry will be re-evaluated prior to their game with the Spurs on Monday (Tuesday, PHL time).

Mark Medina of the Mercury News reported the right thumb is fractured and the guard won't be reevaluated until March 22.
