Warriors’ Russell out for at least two weeks

Golden State Warriors leading scorer D’Angelo Russell will miss at least two weeks with a sprained right thumb.

Russell went off during Friday night’s 105-100 defeat to the Boston Celtics midway through the third quarter after having the ball swiped away by Daniel Theis during a drive to the basket. He missed the final 18 minutes.

He had his hand checked on the sideline, then went to the locker room and didn’t return. X-rays on the thumb showed there was no break.

Russell, who is averaging 24.3 points and 6.7 assists, finished the game with 12 points, seven assists and nine turnovers.

A further MRI scan on Saturday revealed the extent of the sprain and he will not join the Warriors for their next four games on the road.
