Stephen Curry injury update: Warriors’ PG ‘making good progress’ in rehab but set to miss crucial game vs Lakers

Golden State Warriors fans have been holding their breath since their star player Stephen Curry suffered a left leg injury earlier this month. However, there’s good news as the franchise has recently announced that the two-time MVP is ‘making good progress’ in his rehabilitation. 

Despite this optimistic update, Warriors supporters are set to face a blow, as the team has confirmed that Curry will miss a crucial game against the Los Angeles Lakers due to his ongoing recovery.

The team shared on Wednesday that although Curry has recently resumed practicing, he will require further evaluation after one week, as the franchise affirmed that he is making promising strides toward recovery.

Following the All-Star break, the Warriors will hit the road on Thursday for a game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Afterward, they will return home for a five-game homestand, which includes matches against the Houston Rockets (Friday), Minnesota Timberwolves (Sunday), Portland Trail Blazers (Tuesday), Los Angeles Clippers (March 2), and New Orleans Pelicans (March 3).

Since Stephen Curry sustained an injury during the Warriors’ victory against the Dallas Mavericks on February 4, the team has won two games and lost three leading up to the All-Star break.

Throughout this season, the 34-year-old athlete, Stephen Curry has been contributing an impressive average of 29.4 points, 6.4 assists, and 6.3 rebounds per game. Although he was selected for the ninth time as an All-Star, he was unable to participate in the game held in Salt Lake City last Sunday.

As a two-time NBA Most Valuable Player, Curry has maintained career averages of 24.5 points, 6.5 assists, and 4.7 rebounds.

Currently, the Warriors hold the ninth position in the Western Conference standings, only trailing by one game behind the sixth seed, which guarantees an automatic playoff spot. Conversely, they are only ahead of two teams that are tied for the eleventh spot.

It’s worth noting that teams ranked from seventh to tenth place must participate in the play-in tournament to secure the conference’s final two postseason berths.

Unfortunately, the Warriors will also have to play their upcoming match against the Clippers on Thursday without another starter, Andrew Wiggins, who missed the final game before the All-Star break due to personal reasons and is still listed as ‘out’.
