Injury Report: Warriors’ Chris Paul suffers fractured left hand vs. Pistons, set to have surgery

With Gary Payton already set to miss extended time due to injury and Draymond Green serving a suspension, the Golden State Warriors will be missing another key piece going forward.

With under seven minutes remaining in the third quarter against the Detroit Pistons on Friday evening, veteran point guard Chris Paul exited the game with an apparent hand injury and went back to the locker room. Paul was later ruled out of the contest with a wrist injury.

After the game, the Warriors revealed Paul has been diagnosed with a fractured left hand. While there’s no timeline for his injury yet, Paul will undergo surgery next week.

With Paul out, rookie Brandon Podziemski and veteran Corey Joseph will likely help handle point guard duties behind Steph Curry in Steve Kerr’s rotation.
