Stephen Curry Has Been Out For One Month
Curry suffered multiple injuries to his left leg after colliding with Dallas Mavericks guard McKinley Wright IV on February 4. Curry left the game and has not played in any action since the collision.
Curry suffered a lower leg contusion and partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane.
During his absence, the Warriors have gone 5-4 without their star guard.
This marks Curry’s second major injury of the season. The first occurred in December when Curry suffered a left shoulder subluxation. The Warriors went 6-5 in the 11 games Curry missed.
The Warriors Need A Healthy Stephen Curry To Defend Their Title
It goes without saying that the Warriors will need a healthy Curry if they have any aspirations of defending their championship.
On the season, Curry is 29.4 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 6.4 assists per game on shooting splits of 49.5/42.7/92.2.
The Warriors are 32-30 on the year and winners of three-straight games, including a recent 123-105 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. The Warriors finish their four-game homestand with the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday and New Orleans Pelicans on Friday.
