The first two months of 2022-23 have been much tougher for the Golden State Warriors than anyone could have imagined. If the Warriors’ Steph Curry remains out for an extended period, however, the defending champions, who are now 14-15, could have new problems.
Curry left the game during his team’s 125 to 119 loss to the Indiana Pacers late in the third quarter in obvious pain after awkwardly bending his shoulder while trying to steal the ball from his opponent. The Warriors called timeout immediately after the incident and Curry was ruled out for the rest of the game a few minutes later, once he had already retired to the locker room.
Steve Kerr provided an update on the reigning Finals MVP after the match, noting that the severity of Curry’s injury will be revealed by an MRI today. The only ray of hope here? The always sunny Curry was apparently in good spirits after the challenge.
Curry finished with 38 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists on his way out, scoring half of the Californians’ points during the disastrous first 24 minutes. He led a comeback early in the third quarter with a 20-1 run after his team was down 75-54 at halftime.
