Kevon Looney might end up being on the shelf for a little while.

After practice on Monday, Steve Kerr told reporters that Looney will not play on Tuesday night against the Celtics. Golden State hosts Denver on Friday and Phoenix on Sunday before beginning a four-game road trip next Wednesday in Houston.
Through the Warriors' first 53 games, Looney averaged 6.9 points and 5.9 rebounds in 20.9 minutes per appearance.
But over the last nine games, his numbers dipped to 2.2 points and 4.1 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per night.
The 23-year old underwent surgery on his right hip in August 2015, and had a procedure done on his left hip in April 2016.
