Warriors’ Jones could miss season with pectoral injury

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Golden State Warriors starting center Damian Jones will reportedly have surgery this week on his torn left pectoral.

This is not the first time Jones has dealt with this injury, as stated by The Athletic’s Anthony Slater:

Jones’ injury comes at an inopportune time for the Warriors, as Draymond Green is out recovering from a strained right big toe and free-agent signing DeMarcus Cousins not expected to play until at least Christmas as he is working his way back from a torn Achilles he suffered last season.

Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell will likely see increased action and will be relied on to provide some semblance of rim protection that Jones provided.

Jones has started 22 of the 24 games he has appeared in this season and had posted 5.4 points, 3.1 rebounds, and one block in just 17.1 minutes per contest.
