A four-time NBA champion, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry suffered a scary injury to his left shoulder against the Indiana Pacers on December 14. Since then, the warriors’ guard has not returned to the court yet.
After enjoying a 5-game winning streak, the defending champion Warriors lost against the Eastern Conference’s 14th-seeded Detroit Pistons. They are currently in the 9th position with a 20-19 record, eyeing a playoff spot in the Western Conference. With Curry’s injury, they have lost five games so far.
What is the latest update on Stephen Curry’s injury? When will he be back?
Last night, Warriors president Bob Myers revealed the latest on the 34-year-old guard’s injury in a radio show. “He’s going to be re-evaluated this weekend. He’s working out on the court… There’s been no setbacks,” Bob told the Steiny & Guru on 95.7 The Game.

It seems the current NBA Finals MVP is set to be back in the match against the San Antonio Spurs one week later.
Despite the Warriors having been a six-time finalist in the previous eight seasons and starting the season below average, the two-time NBA MVP had a fantastic season prior to his injury. He scored 30 points, had 6.8 assists, and 6.6 rebounds on average over 26 games.
Steph went head-to-head with 6.9-foot forward Jalen Smith during the third quarter, and his left hand went backward horribly. After the MRI, it diagnosed as ‘Left Shoulder Subluxation.’
His absence put enormous pressure on the team, but youngster Jordan Pool’s outstanding performance kept the playoff dream alive. Steph Curry scored 38 points with seven rebounds and seven assists before leaving the court with a shoulder subluxation. His actions and effects on the court push the team forward both mentally and physically.
