Sources: Klay to miss at least the next four games

OAKLAND -- Add Klay Thompson to the list of All-Stars unavailable to the Warriors when they face the Lakers Wednesday night.

And like his backcourt mate Stephen Curry, Thompson will be out of the lineup for at least another full week and probably longer, multiple sources confirmed to NBC Sports Bay Area.

Though the Warriors are calling it a right thumb sprain, an ESPN report referred to it a fracture. In either case, Thompson is sidelined by an injury sustained in the fourth quarter of a loss to the Timberwolves on Sunday in Minnesota.

Thompson, the team’s No. 3 scorer at 19.7 points per game, is scheduled to undergo reevaluation on March 22.

Curry, out since tweaking his right ankle last Thursday, is scheduled to be reevaluated on March 20.

Draymond Green, who has spent the season playing through discomfort in his right shoulder, will not play against the Lakers and is day-to-day after that. He likely will miss a few more games over the final four weeks of the season.

Watch Steph Curry's mother, Sonya, make underhanded half-court shot

Watch Steph Curry's mother, Sonya, make underhanded half-court shot

Shooting just runs in the Curry family, doesn’t it?

Sonya Curry, Warriors superstar Steph Curry’s mother, brought the house down when she sunk an underhanded half-court shot when the Curry family was back in Charlotte, N.C. for the NBA All-Star Game.

The Currys celebrated in style after her shot swished through the net.

Sonya’s shooting exploits were on display as part of an event the Stephen and Ayesha Curry Family foundation helped put together at the Carole Hoefner Center. The Curry family was there to raise the curtain on a large-scale renovation of the gym, which will help serve the community of Charlotte.

Sonya is quite the athlete herself, so her shooting marksmanship should come as no surprise. Sonya was a basketball star in high school and played volleyball at Virginia Tech University.

Of course, Sonya’s husband, Dell, and her two sons, Steph and Seth, have all reached the NBA.

Seth, a member of the Portland Trail Blazers, will be competing against his older, more famous brother on Saturday night in the NBA 3-point contest.

Steph said earlier Friday that he’d beat his brother in the competition, and hinted that Dell also might have a role in the event.

But based on Sonya’s half-court shot, is it too late for her to get an invite to enter the contest as well?

Steph Curry, Seth get hilarious advice from Dell for NBA 3-Point Contest

Steph Curry, Seth get hilarious advice from Dell for NBA 3-Point Contest

Father knows best, right? 

When it comes from a 16-year NBA veteran, yes. Even if you are the two-time NBA MVP and three-time champ. 

Some advice is better than others, and it doesn't get much better than what Dell Curry said to his sons Steph and Seth about how to win the NBA 3-Point Contest. 

"My pops, his advice when he did it, was don't do what he did and go out the night before 'til the sun comes up," Steph said in an exclusive interview with NBC Sports Bay Area's Kelenna Azubuike. "He's like, 'the person that wants to win the most, is the one that's gonna go to bed the earliest and not go out the night before.' I appreciated that."

Dell only scored 12 points and was dropped in the first round of the 1994 3-Point Contest against Cleveland's Mark Price.

Steph has already predicted he'll beat Seth and win the event, so he better get some shut-eye. It sounds like there's going to a pretty expensive brotherly bet, too.

There's never been a better 3-point shooting family than the Currys. It should be a competitive contest with Steph and Seth, but either way, they'll probably do better than Dell ... if they stick to his advice.
