Warriors star Stephen Curry to reportedly miss multiple weeks due to leg injury


The Golden State Warriors will be without their superstar for a while. Stephen Curry will reportedly miss multiple weeks due to a left leg injury, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Curry sustained the injury during Saturday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks. Curry injured himself while playing defense in the third quarter of the 119-113 Warriors win. Curry went for X-rays at the arena, which came back negative. He was set to undergo an MRI on Sunday.

Warriors head coach Steve Kerr did not provide an update on Curry after Saturday’s game. Kerr hinted at the uncertainty of the injury, saying he would keep his “fingers crossed” that Curry would be OK.

The Warriors struggled with Curry sidelined. The team was outscored 27-17 in the final quarter, making what was shaping up to be a blowout victory with Curry into a close win without him.

Curry, 34, is in the midst of another fantastic season. He was averaging 29.4 points, 6.4 assists and 6.3 rebounds prior to Saturday’s injury. That performance led to Curry getting elected to the All-Star Game as a starter. The injury will likely prevent Curry from taking part in the All-Star Game.

There’s hope Curry could return shortly after the All-Star break, according to NBC Sports’ Monte Poole. The Warriors play five games before the break, which starts Feb. 17. The team’s first game following the All-Star festivities will take place Feb. 23.
