OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors rookie forward Kevon Looney will miss at least four to six months after undergoing surgery on his right hip.

Looney had the operation to repair a torn labrum on Thursday. He will begin rehabilitation immediately and will not be able to resume basketball activity for four to six months.

Warriors general manager Bob Myers says it was best to address the issue now and the team is confident Looney will have a full recovery.
