OAKLAND – Warriors forward Kevon Looney found himself with half of a tooth missing after taking an elbow from Denver Nuggets guard Torrey Craig late in the third quarter of Golden State’s 115-108 loss to the Nuggets on Saturday night.

On Monday, however, the third year forward’s smile was completely intact.

Looney said he got a root canal to fix the tooth Sunday. However, the procedure wasn’t finished because of swelling in this mouth. As a result, Looney said he’ll finish the procedure in “a couple of weeks.”

Still, the dental work got the stamp of approval from Warriors coach Steve Kerr.

However, Looney remained a bit confused over what happened on the play itself.

“At first I was shocked at how easily [the tooth] came out,” Looney said following Monday’s practice.

Shortly after the play occurred, Looney hoped that the tooth missing wasn’t his.

“During the game I was pretty upset,” Looney said. “I knew what happened, I kind of spit it out of my mouth but I was hoping it wasn’t mine.

“It was pretty traumatizing,” Looney added.

Even though his tooth was fixed, Looney still had a bit of trouble this weekend when he was watching the Super Bowl matchup between the Eagles and Patriots Sunday afternoon.

“I couldn’t eat the wings the way I wanted to,” Looney said. “So I was a little upset.”

Still, Looney found solace that his tooth will be intact for Tuesday’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“My birthday is tomorrow,” Looney said. I didn’t want to go into my birthday without a tooth.”
