Warriors star shooter Stephen Curry has been ruled out indefinitely after suffering partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligaments, interosseous membrane and a lower leg contusion.
An official timeline to return will be announced by the team soon, as they look to determine the severity and exact amount of weeks Curry will miss.
The injuries are expected to keep him out for multiple weeks though, according to NBA Insider Shams Charania, meaning he will most likely miss out on All-Star weekend.
Golden State announced the news on Sunday following Curry’s third quarter exit from their game against Dallas on Saturday, which they won 119-113.
Curry was defending a drive by Mavericks guard McKinley Wright IV when it looked like two knocked knees.
The shooting guard was seen to be in pain immediately and hobbled off the court to the bench and then the locker room.
“He’s going to come back this season and hopefully sooner rather than later,” head coach Steve Kerr said of Curry.
The 34-year-old missed 11 games earlier this season due to a left shoulder subluxation and overall, the team has a 7-8 record without him this season.
The Dubs are just 27-26 through 53 games and are 7th seed in the Western Conference but with their poor on the road record (7-20), an extended stint on the sidelines for Curry is definitely not ideal, so let’s hope we see him back on the court soon.
