Warriors' Kevon Looney out for two-game road trip with hamstring injury

The Warriors will head out on the road without one of their own.

Kevon Looney will miss the two games with a hamstring injury, NBC Sports Bay Area's Logan Murdock reported.

Murdock also reported the injury, according to head coach Steve Kerr, "is a neuropathic problem that’s nagged him for a few years that’s affected his hamstring."

In Thursday night's 141-122 loss to the Clippers, Looney showed he was imperative to the Dubs. In the first 10 minutes of the game, he snagged nine rebounds and presented himself as a promising defensive weapon. But he exited the game early due to tightness in that right hamstring and never returned to the floor.

Draymond Green also suffered an injury of his own. Kerr said Green's elbow is fine and he should be good to go Sunday afternoon against the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Green left the season-opener early and was diagnosed with a right elbow contusion. He returned later in the second quarter.
