Suns' rookie Warren out indefinitely with broken thumb
PHOENIX â Phoenix Suns forward T.J. Warren has sustained a small crack in a bone in his left thumb. He will be treated with a splint and rest. There is no timetable for his return.
Warren injured his thumb when he caught it on a Lakers jersey during Tuesday's game.
Warren, a rookie from North Carolina State, was selected by the Suns with the 14th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. He has averaged 5.0 points and 12.2 minutes in five preseason appearances.
He is the third Phoenix player to suffer a hand injury this preseason as a result of getting tangled with another player's jerey -- following Anthony Tolliver and Alex Len.
