Report: Warriors’ Marquese Chriss out for season with broken right leg
After losing all-star guard Klay Thompson to an Achilles injury at the end of the season before training camp, the Warriors will have to forego another important contribution for the 2020-21 season.
According to The Atheltic's Shams Charania, Marquese Chriss will miss the rest of the 2020-21 season after a broken right leg. The San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau confirmed Charania's injury report.
After joining the Warriors during their 2019 training camp, the former lottery quickly became one of the better stories of Golden State's 2019-20 campaign. Although he was shortly renounced to make room for Damion Lee, Chriss turned a two-way contract into a two-year deal with the Warriors.
Chriss made 21 starts for the Warriors last season, averaging 9.3 points at 54.5% from the field with 6.2 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. The Washington product ended the 2019-20 season on a good note, posting double-doubles in four of its last five games.

I can confirm the @ ShamsCharania report that Marquese Chriss suffered a broken right leg at the end of the season. Another devastating blow to the warriors.

The 23-year-old started the 2020-21 season behind rookie James Wiseman. In two games, Chriss averaged 6.5 points at 35.7% from the field with 6.5 rebounds and a block in 13.5 minutes per game.
In his second season at Golden State, Chriss showed off an improved long-distance sweater. During the preseason, Chriss shot 3: 9 from a distance. At the Warriors' season opener against the Brooklyn Nets, Chriss stepped out to knock down a 3-pointer on three attempts.
Without Chriss, veteran Kevon Looney is likely to see an expanded role behind Wiseman in the Golden State forecourt. With a thin depth map, Alen Smailagic from the second round of 2019 could also extend the playing time. Smailagic missed both Golden State games to start the season with knee pain.
