How concerning is Klay Thompson's thumb injury for the Warriors?

A day after finding out that former Kia MVP winner Stephen Curry will be out at least another week, the Golden State Warrirors got some more injury news.

According to the Warriors, All-Star guard Klay Thompson has a fractured right thumb and will be re-evaluated on March 22.

In the Warriors' loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday, Thompson sprained the thumb. According to Sam Amick of USA Today, the team is confident he'll return around March 22.

Thompson has missed only one game this season, on Jan. 10 against the LA Clippers for rest. He is averaging 19.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game this season and ranks in the Top 5 of the NBA in 3-pointers made (206) and 3-point percentage (44.2 percent)

Curry is expected to miss at least another week with the sprained ankle injury that has sidelined him since suffering it on March 8. The Warriors said Curry will be re-evaluated prior to their game with the Spurs on Monday. Skipping that game would give Curry three more days of rest before the Warriors face the Hawks on March 23. 

Thompson and Curry missed Wednesday's 117-106 win against the Los Angeles Lakers, as did All-Star forward Draymond Green (right shoulder soreness) and reserves Patrick McCaw (non-displaced fracture, left wrist) and David West (right arm cyst). Forward Andre Iguodala (left wrist sprain) did play last night, logging three points, two rebounds and three assists in 22 minutes.
