Adjust Comment Print

Golden State has been cautious dealing with player injuries this season and is now without All-Stars Kevin Durant (incomplete rib fracture), Draymond Green (pelvic contusion) and Klay Thompson (thumb fracture) and Omri Casspi (ankle sprain). This season, Curry is averaging 26.3 points, 6.2 assists and 5.1 rebounds per game for the Warriors (53-18). Curry was visibly hurt and had to limp out of the court.

The Warriors said Curry sprained his medial collateral ligament and was scheduled for an MRI on Saturday. "Nothing would surprise me", Kerr said. Health has been a concern for the defending champions as their all-stars Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, along with Curry, all missed time due to various injuries. The extent of the injury is not known at this time, but the sharp shooting All-Star was noticeably limping as he headed to the locker room. He has participated fully in Golden State's past two practices with no issues. But you'll always have video of Curry swishing shots in a Kentucky jersey, Big Blue Nation. Several teammates spoke up, expressing frustration and confusion over a growing divide that has created significant tension between Leonard and the Spurs.
