Report: Golden State Warriors release crucial update on Stephen Curry’s injury

Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry will miss an unknown period of time after suffering an injury on Wednesday night.

Curry played just under 14 minutes in Golden State’s 110-88 loss on Wednesday, with his injury occurring with just a few minutes remaining before halftime. The 34-year-old veteran was going for a loose ball when the Celtics’ Marcus Smart landed on his leg, a move that annoyed Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.

It was a bad night overall for the Warriors, who lost the game and their superstar point guard.

Going into Wednesday’s game, Curry was coming off a contest against the Washington Wizards in which he poured in 47 points. For the season, he is averaging 25.5 points, 6.3 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game.

The absence of Curry over an extended stretch may end up impacting the Warriors’ playoff position. Right now, their 47-23 record is the third-best mark in the Western Conference. Golden State is one game behind the Memphis Grizzlies.

Neither team has a realistic shot at passing the Phoenix Suns in the standings. The Suns have an impressive record of 56-14 on the season. The Warriors are likely hoping to simply land one of the top four spots in the West in order to gain home-court advantage for at least the first round of the playoffs.

After reaching the play-in tournament last season, the Warriors entered the 2021-22 season with hopes of challenging for an NBA championship. That may still come to pass, but the team definitely needs Curry back on the court in order to make it happen.
