Report: Warriors' Payton to miss at least 3 weeks with elbow fracture
Payton's timeline means he'll miss the rest of the team's second-round playoff series, though a return in the NBA Finals is possible should the Warriors advance that far.
Brooks was handed a flagrant-2 foul for the play, resulting in an ejection. The league has yet to announce any further discipline.
Payton put together a career-best season in 2021-22, playing in 71 games and averaging 7.1 points per contest. His hounding on-ball defense made him a primary matchup against Memphis star Ja Morant.
