A month of absence for Payton II?



According to various American media, the back of the Golden State Warriors Gary Payton II, who fractured his left elbow, could finally miss between three and five weeks of competition. Which would allow him to come back for the Finals.

Finally, we could see Gary Payton II again before the end of this 2021-22 season. Everything will obviously depend on the course of his current franchise, namely the Golden State Warriors. The California-based squad is currently in the NBA playoff semifinals in the Western Conference against the Memphis Grizzlies. For the moment, the two teams are tied (1-1). And precisely, during this famous Game 2, the back of the Golden State Warriors had fractured his left elbow, following a fault by Dillon Brooks which had caused him to fall badly while he was in the air, at the very start of the match. If many fears were then expressed, as to the continuation of this season currently underway of the main interested party, ultimately his unavailability could be lower.

Brooks soon sanctioned by the NBA?

According to information fromESPN, it could last about a month. For Yahoo! Sports, Gary Payton II could return after only three weeks, or, at worst, in five weeks. If this is confirmed, then the player will obviously miss the continuation and end of this famous series currently in progress, against the Memphis Grizzlies, before then a possible final, in the Western conference. However, the back could hope to return at the very end of the season, provided the Golden State Warriors then qualify for the Finals. These will be held next June. This famous fault of Dillon Brooks had made speak, thus in particular provoking the anger of Steve Kerr, the coach of the Californian franchise. The offending player, expelled on the spot, could be further sanctioned by the NBA. The prestigious League could thus decide to suspend it for at least one match, or even several. A sanction which could even be formalized this Thursday.
