The injuries just keep coming for the Warriors.

Guard Ky Bowman was the latest Warriors player to go down with an injury and the initial prognosis doesn't sound good.

Bowman injured his right ankle late in the Warriors' 116-86 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers and coach Steve Kerr expects the breakout player miss time.

"He rolled his ankle pretty well," Kerr told reporters at Chase Center after the game. "It's not going to be a day-to-day thing. He's going to be out a little bit. He won't go on the trip [to Phoenix] and I think he'll get an MRI [Friday]."

With under 90 seconds remaining in the game, Bowman drove to the basket but when he planted, he stepped on Troy Daniels' foot.

After staying down on the court for a few moments, Bowman was helped up by LeBron James and Dwight Howard. A pair of Warriors teammates carried Bowman to the locker room.

Earlier in the game, rookie guard Jordan Poole rolled his ankle, but returned to the game after getting it re-taped in the locker room.

With Bowman out for Saturday's game against the Suns, the Warriors are extremely thin at guard. Andrew Wiggins missed Thursday's game due to back spasms and his status for Saturday's game is unknown.

If Wiggins and Poole are unable to play, that would leave Damion Lee as the only true guard on the active roster.

 

The silver lining for the Warriors is that they are expecting Steph Curry to return in the next few days. The two-time NBA MVP will give the backcourt and the team a big boost.
