Tempe, Ariz. -- Warriors forward Kevon Looney will sit out of Wednesday's game against the Phoenix Suns with hip soreness, coach Steve Kerr announced earlier in the day.

Looney injured his hip in a collision during Monday's loss to the Miami Heat, Kerr said. Earlier this season, Looney sat out extended time with abdominal soreness. Prior to that, he was limited with a neuropathic condition, forcing him to miss training camp and the first month of the season.

The 24-year-old will miss his 35th game of the season when he doesn't suit up against the Suns.

Looney has had trouble with his hips in the past. Through his first two seasons, he had surgery on both hips.

Nonetheless, Kerr has called Looney a "foundational piece" in the organization following successful postseason performances in recent years, earning a three-year, $15 million contract last summer.
