Kevon Looney re-aggravates collar bone injury, out for Game 5

2019 NBA Finals - Game Five

TORONTO, ONTARIO - JUNE 10: Kevon Looney #5 of the Golden State Warriors is defended by Marc Gasol #33 of the Toronto Raptors in the first half during Game Five of the 2019 NBA Finals at Scotiabank Arena on June 10, 2019 in Toronto, Canada.

The injuries — or, in this case, re-injuries — are piling up for the Warriors.

First Kevin Durant had to leave the game with a lower leg injury, just 12 minutes into his return after a month of missed games with a strained calf.

In the second half, Kevon Looney was clearly in pain with his collar bone area injury. Now he is done for the game as well.

Looney was a critical part of the Warriors front line rotation. His absence means more DeMarcus Cousins — who was strong on offense and the glass, but was picked on defensively — and even some Jordan Bell. Those are big steps down for the Warriors on the court.

And it showed as Toronto came back.
