OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson will miss Friday's game against Cleveland to attend the funeral of his grandfather.

The Warriors announced Thursday that Thompson was leaving the team to travel to the Bahamas for the funeral. Thompson's grandfather, Dewitt, died recently at his home in the Bahamas at age 94.

The team says Thompson's status for Sunday's game at Portland is undetermined at this time.

Thompson is averaging 17.9 points per game this season.
