The basketball gods have dealt Kevon Looney and the Golden State Warriors a blow.
Looney is out for the remainder of the Finals with a broken collar bone — a “non-displaced first costal cartilage fracture” if you want to be specific. It was a story first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN and confirmed by the Warriors:
Looney was injured in the first quarter after getting in the way of a driving Kawhi Leonard and taking a hard fall. He left the game not to return.
First, this is just a bad break for the Looney. He had come into his own this year and during the playoffs in particular.
Game 3 of the NBA Finals is Wednesday night in Oracle Arena.
