Golden State Warriors rookie Jonathan Kuminga will miss one additional week due to a patellar tendon strain in his right knee, the team announced on Friday.

Kuminga suffered the injury on Oct. 6 in the fourth quarter against the Denver Nuggets. The exact play when it occurred is not known but he left the game under his own power and would not return. He missed the Warriors’ final three games of the preseason.

The seventh overall pick played sparingly with the Warriors during his two preseason games. He registered just eight points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 17 minutes between his two appearances, only playing in the second half in each contest.

The Warriors will certainly be cautious with Kuminga and allow him to be fully healthy before returning to play. The team is also still in the process of determining his role for this season so his absence will not impact the team too much.

Golden State opens up the regular season on Tuesday versus the Los Angeles Lakers.
