Well, this isn't exactly the Kevon Looney update you were hoping for.
Steve Kerr announced after practice Tuesday that the Warriors big man will not play against the Lakers on Wednesday or Friday.

Kevon Looney will not play the rest of the week. Did practice today. “Hope” is that Looney will be available in season opener, Steve Kerr says.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) October 15, 2019
Looney tweaked his hamstring 13 days ago and missed Golden State's first three preseason games.
At Media Day, Kerr told reporters that he has big plans for the 23-year-old and is planning on playing him around 30 minutes per night.
Willie Cauley-Stein -- who was projected to start at center -- has missed all of traning camp and is expected to be sidelined the first couple regular season games.
Without these two, the Dubs are getting crushed on the glass.
At this point, it would be very surprising if Marquese Chriss isn't on the Opening Night roster.
Marquese Chriss last week: “The biggest thing is just getting the scorers open ... getting those guys the ball in the spots that they can score.” This is a perfect example of him listening to what the coaches want from him, and it results in a bucket for Damion Lee pic.twitter.com/L6D1cw9L1i— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) October 15, 2019
The 22-year-old is averaging 10.0 points, 9.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.7 blocks during the preseason. He's also a perfect 8-for-8 from the free throw line.
