Before going under the knife on Friday, Curry took to social media to give a quick update on his condition. In the photo, the former NBA MVP looked seemingly in good spirits while giving a huge smile with his injured hand wrapped. He thanks everyone for their support writing,
“Appreciate all the love, texts, support, all that.”
This latest injury sets the Warriors back as the team is already without star shooter Klay Thompson, who is recovering from an ACL knee Injury. Warriors forward, Draymond Green spoke on the team’s multiple injuries to their star players. He says,
It’s hard. Makes things even harder. But just got to keep playing and trying to figure it out. I just wish we got one practice with our team. One practice. We didn’t even get one practice. Not a single one.”
As of now, the Warriors will have to play 45 games over the next three months without their star point guard. If all goes as planned, Curry should return around the NBA All-Star break in February.
Can the Warriors continue to dominate without Curry? Let us know in the comments!
