Former IU big man Trayce Jackson-Davis is dealing with an injury that forced him to miss Golden State’s opener in the California Classic on Monday in Sacramento.

Shortly after the Warriors tipped off against the Kings, the team announced TJD’s absence was due to a right hamstring injury.

The Warriors play again today at 6 p.m. ET against Charlotte in their second and final game of the California Classic. The game will be televised on ESPN2.

According to Anthony Slater, who covers the Warriors for The Athletic, Jackson-Davis may not play for the Warriors until the NBA2K24 Summer League in Las Vegas:

Here is Golden State’s schedule in Las Vegas:

July 7 vs. Los Angeles at 11 p.m. on ESPN
July 9 vs. New Orleans at 10 p.m. on ESPN2
July 12 vs. Dallas at 5:30 p.m. on NBA TV
July 13 vs. Houston at 7 p.m. on ESPN
