Kevon Looney (hamstring) and Alec Burks (ankle) will not play on Thursday vs. the Wolves.
Looney suffered a minor tweak to his hamstring exactly a week ago while this is the first we are hearing about Burks' ankle injury. The Warriors are being extremely cautious with Looney as they are already without starting center Willie Cauley-Stein (left foot sprain) for the start of the regular season. Monitor both of them as they will have another opportunity to play in the preseason on Monday vs. the Lakers. They should be fine to start the regular season barring any setback. Expect Marquese Chriss, Omari Spellman and Eric Paschall to see a lot of minutes at center on Thursday. Burks' absence will mean more minutes for youngsters Jordan Poole and Jacob Evans.
