Kevon Looney has missed the last six games with the Warriors, and will miss at least the next nine.

Golden State provided an official update on the injured center’s status Wednesday afternoon. It states that Looney “recently underwent a battery of tests” due to nerve related symptoms in his right hamstring, and that the Warriors are “hopeful and encouraged that the treatment plan will allow him to recover in the near future.”

Looney will be officially re-evaluated in two weeks, and did not travel with the team to Houston for their game on Wednesday night. Willy Cauly-Stein, Marquese Chriss, Eric Pashcall and Draymond Green have all started at center in Looney’s place during his six game absence.

Looney, 23, signed a very team-friendly 3 year, $14.6 million deal with the Warriors last offseason.
