OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Golden State Warriors center Damian Jones has been sidelined by a torn left pectoral muscle.
The Warriors announced the injury on Sunday and said Jones’ long-term status will be determined following a meeting with a specialist in the coming days. But he likely will be sidelined for a significant amount of time.
Jones got hurt with 5.7 seconds remaining in the third quarter of a loss Saturday at Detroit.
He is averaging 5.4 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.
The Warriors already are thin at center with DeMarcus Cousins still working his way back from a torn left Achilles tendon. Draymond Green, who also plays center in certain lineups, has missed 11 of the past 13 games as he deals with a toe injury.
