Warriors' Kevon Looney: Grabs 10 rebounds in victory

Looney produced two points (1-3 FG), 10 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 27 minutes in Thursday's 118-97 win over the Thunder. Looney continues to be a rebounding machine while leaving the scoring to his teammates. While not exactly a fantasy standout due to his one-dimensional excellence, Looney has done the best he can to minimize the impact of James Wiseman's season-ending injury. Depending on how the chips fall, Looney will have his hands full with potential playoff opposition from elite centers like Nikola Jokic and Rudy Gobert. Looney's best numbers have come opposite centers with lesser pedigrees.

How Kevon Looney is helping power the Warriors’ run

While Stephen Curry’s 11th straight 30-plus point game had the NBA world abuzz, Warriors coach Steve Kerr took notice of Kevon Looney, who spent Monday night’s win in Philadelphia battling with MVP candidate Joel Embiid. To protect Golden State’s nine-point lead with a minute left to play, Looney cut off...

Warriors' Kevon Looney: Career-high 15 boards in win

Looney scored five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 FT) and added 15 rebounds and an assist over 34 minutes during Monday's 107-96 win over the 76ers. Looney has been a busy man on the glass, grabbing double-digit rebounds in three of five contests since entering the starting lineup. Prior to this recent span, Looney had just one game with at least 10 rebounds in his first 42 appearances. With rookie James Wiseman (knee) likely out for the season, Looney is showing an ability to make an impact on the glass, though he doesn't provide much else in terms of counting stats.

Warriors' Kevon Looney: Grabs 10 boards in win

Looney scored eight points (4-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt) with 10 rebounds and two assists in a 119-101 victory over the Cavaliers on Thursday. Looney grabbed double-digit rebounds for the second time in his last three games. The center should get plenty of opportunities with James Wiseman (knee) likely out for the season. Looney has started the last three games and averaged 5.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.7 assists across 26.9 minutes of action.

Warriors' Kevon Looney: Hauls in 11 boards Monday

Looney finished with zero points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three assists and one steal in 31 minutes during Monday's 116-107 victory over Denver. While moving back into the starting five, Looney handled a season-high minutes load, and his playing time will likely be on the rise for the foreseeable future with James Wiseman (knee) likely to miss the rest of the season. As he showed Monday, Looney is capable of delivering some useful production as a rebounder, but his lack of a polished offensive game will hurt his chances of becoming a must-roster asset in 12-team leagues.

Warriors' Kevon Looney replacing James Wiseman (knee) Monday

Golden State Warriors big man Kevon Looney will start on Monday against the Denver Nuggets in place of James Wiseman (knee). Wiseman tore his meniscus and may be done for the season, so Looney could be looking at a starting job for the rest of the season. Juan Toscano-Anderson and Draymond Green should also see more work at the five.

Warriors' Kevon Looney (ankle) fine for Friday

Golden State Warriors power forward Kevon Looney is not on the injury report for Friday's game against the Toronto Raptors.

He's been seeing around 20 minutes lately and figures to see the same workload versus Toronto.

Warriors' Kevon Looney: Moves to bench role

Looney is expected to come off the bench with coach Steve Kerr saying he'll start James Wiseman for the rest of the season, Nick Friedell of reports. Looney started in 16 of his past 17 appearances for the Warriors, but he averaged only 16.0 minutes during that stretch. The 25-year-old's workload may only be slightly reduced despite shifting to the bench role since Wiseman was already seeing more minutes when both players are healthy.

Warriors' Kevon Looney expected back Tuesday

Golden State Warriors power forward Kevon Looney is not on the injury report for Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Looney has cleared the league's health and safety protocols after missing a game. James Wiseman (protocols) and Eric Paschall (protocols) are also expected to return Tuesday, but Looney has been drawing the starts at center recently. Alen Smailagic, who made the spot-start on Saturday, could fall back out of the rotation now that the Warriors' bigs are back.

Warriors' Kevon Looney: Clears protocols

Looney (COVID-19 protocols) has cleared the NBA's health and safety protocols, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. Looney is expected to return to action versus the 76ers on Tuesday. He was forced to miss Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, but it looks like the Warriors will only end up being without Looney for that sole contest. Prior to missing Saturday's game, Looney had started 10 of Golden State's last 11 games.
