The Golden State Warriors have been hit with another injury.

D’Angelo Russell suffered a sprained right thumb in Friday night’s game against the Boston Celtics and will be re-evaluated in two weeks, the team announced Saturday.

As a result of the diagnosis, Russell will not join the Warriors on the team’s upcoming four-game road trip.

Russell, who joins teammates Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevan Looney on the sidelines, has averaged 24.3 points, 6.7 assists and 3.6 rebounds in 10 games for the Warriors this season.
