Warriors’ Kevon Looney scheduled to play Monday against Hawks
ORLANDO — Warriors center Kevon Looney (Neuropathy) is scheduled to play in Atlanta on Monday, coach Steve Kerr said, and will be on a minutes restriction upon his return.
Looney, who has missed most of the season with a neuropathic condition, went through warmups before Sunday’s game in Orlando. He will receive treatment Monday morning, at which point the Warriors will make a final decision on his availability.
After missing the preseason with a right hamstring injury, Looney, 23, played briefly 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.

With seven players listed on the injury report, the Warriors (4-16) have had fewer than 10 available players in each of the last seven games.
Other injury news: Also participating in warmups before Sunday’s game were guards D’Angelo Russell (thumb) and Jacob Evans (adductor). Both are on track to return before the conclusion of the Warriors’ five-game trip, most likely in Charlotte on Wednesday or Chicago on Friday. Guard Damion Lee (fractured hand) is with the team and was working out on an exercise bike.
