Klay Thompson should be Warriors first option nightly

He could miss seven games.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson has reportedly fractured his right thumb and will be re-evaluated on March 22, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.

Thompson suffered the injury on Sunday but was able to play through it, so this shouldn't keep him out of Wednesday's matchup.

Thompson and Curry will miss tonight's game vs. the Lakers as will All-Star forward Draymond Green (right shoulder soreness), Patrick McCaw (non-displaced fracture, left wrist) and David West (right arm cyst). He is averaging 19.7 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.7 assists over 66 games this season, his seventh in the National Basketball Association.

Already without Stephen Curry, who is now recovering from an ankle injury, the Dubs are very thin in their backcourt, with Quin Cook and Shaun Livingston receiving extended playing time.

Golden State will also be without Stephen Curry for at least one more week after he re-aggravated an ankle injury last week.
