How Kevon Looney’s return will impact the Warriors’ rotation

ORLANDO — Warriors center Kevon Looney could play as soon as Monday in Atlanta as he nears his return from a neuropathic condition that has sidelined him most of the season.

Looney is the Warriors’ most experienced center and was the opening day starter. While his return will be a welcome addition to a team lacking in institutional knowledge, it will also change a front court rotation that is the deepest of any positional unit on the team.

Willie Cauley-Stein started the last 16 games at center, Omari Spellman and Marquese Chriss have made skilled contributions off the bench, and Draymond Green and Eric Paschall’s versatility have rounded out a five-man platoon.
