NBA rumors: Kevon Looney enters health and safety protocols

Warriors center Kevon Looney will miss Saturday night’s game against the Grizzlies at FedEx Forum after entering the NBA’s health and safety protocols, a Golden State spokesman confirmed with The Chronicle. The specific reason Looney, 25, entered the league’s health and safety protocols remains unclear. Though the team isn’t sure how much time Looney will miss, players in the health and safety protocols for coronavirus contact tracing typically sit out seven days. That would have Looney missing four games: Saturday in Memphis, Tuesday against the 76ers, Thursday at Sacramento and Friday against the Hawks.
