Warriors hopeful Kevon Looney (neuropathic condition) could return Monday against the Hawks

MIAMI — Center Kevon Looney is nearing his return from a neuropathic condition that has sidelined him most of the season, but will not play in the next two games, coach Steve Kerr said. Looney could play in Atlanta on Monday.

After missing the preseason with a right hamstring injury, Looney, 23, played 11 minutes in the season opener against the L.A. Clippers but left the game by halftime. It was later revealed that a neuropathic condition was complicating his recovery. After a brief rehab stint with the Warriors’ G League affiliate in Santa Cruz, Looney began practicing with the team in San Francisco this week.

Guard Jacob Evans, sidelined the last 16 games with a strained left adductor, participated in shoot around Friday morning. Two-way contract guard Damion Lee (fractured hand) and guard D’Angelo Russell (thumb) also did some side work with the team.

The Warriors beat the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday with nine players, and played the previous three games with only eight players. The possibility remains that the Warriors could have as many as 13 healthy players at some point during their five-game trip starting Friday against the Miami Heat.
