The Golden State Warriors have not been able to stay healthy so far this season.

They will be without their starting centre Damian Jones for the near future, and possibly the entire season, per Warriors PR.

The Warriors got their star point guard Stephen Curry back in Saturday's 111-102 loss to the Detroit Pistons but their depth continues to diminish. They were without Curry for 11 games with an injured groin. Other notable injuries include Draymond Green (toe) who has missed 11 games as well as breakout forward Alfonzo McKinnie who has missed eight games with a foot injury.

On top of those three injuries, they're still awaiting the debut of DeMarcus Cousins who is still recovering from a torn Achilles a season ago but is expected to return some time around Christmas.

Jones has started in 22 of Golden State's 24 games. He was averaging 5.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 17.1 minutes per contest. While it does not seem like a huge hit based off of these numbers, this forces the Warriors to go deeper into their already thin bench.

Look for Kevon Looney (19.0 minutes per game) and Jordan Bell (12.0 minutes per game) to see an increased amount of playing time in Jones' place.

Golden State is currently 15-9 sitting at fourth place in the Western Conference. They return to action on Monday when they continue their road trip and take on the Atlanta Hawks.
