Playing with your thumb (without doing slaping, I understand) won't injure you at all and it's very true that you get a very warm sound. There's a lot of famoues bassists that had only used their thumbs to play (I only could remember James Jamerson...) but it has a great disadvantage: you cannot play fast.
So my advice is to develop your fingers technique too in order to alternate both index-middle fingers and thumb.
