Golden State Warriors’ big man Kevon Looney is back at 100%, after undergoing surgery to heal a core muscle injury, per his agent.
“I think he’s 100%,” his agent Todd Ramasar told The Mercury News. “It’s one of those things where, because of this long runway that we have of an offseason for at least the Warriors and Kevon, there’s no need to push it.”
Looney’s issue caused him soreness in his abdomen, which prevented him from taking part in the Warriors games during the 2019-2020 season that ended on March for his team.
The Milwaukee native played in just 20 of a possible 65 games in 2019-20, averaging 3.4 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
The Warriors’ center is going to have plenty of time to fully recover and play again in December, as it’s expected based on the NBA’s schedule for the 2020-21 season.
