Stephen Curry injury update: Warriors’ star set to miss miss multiple games following two partial tears in left leg

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry missed 11 games earlier this season due to a subluxation in his left shoulder.  He missed 18 games last season and appeared in only five games this season. A series of ankle injuries hindered his growth early in his career, but he was able to overcome them and emerge into an MVP-caliber player.

Unfortunately Curry got an injury yet again. He has been ruled out indefinitely by the Golden State Warriors after suffering partial tears to his superior tibiofibular ligaments and interosseous membrane, as well as a lower leg contusion, the team said on Sunday. An exact timeline will be disclosed later, but the injuries are anticipated to keep him out for several weeks.

Curry got the injury during the Warriors’ 119-113 victory over the Dallas Mavericks, who were missing Luka Doncic. Curry was attempting to defend a drive by Mavericks player McKinley Wright IV during the third quarter when the two looked to collide. Curry’s leg buckled inward, requiring him to leave the game and go to the locker room.

A prolonged Curry absence would be a major issue for a Golden State team that has fallen short of expectations this season. Despite winning the title last year, the Warriors are only 27-26 in 53 games this season. They now have the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference, but the standings are so packed that any time spent without Curry may knock them out entirely of the play-in round. The Lakers are currently only 2.5 games behind them.

The Warriors have a lot more depth at the guard positions. Donte DiVincenzo has had a terrific comeback season in Golden State, and Jordan Poole and Klay Thompson can increase their play. But there is no replacement for the greatest shooter of all time, so the Warriors can only hope that their finest player restores to health as soon as possible.

It might even occur that Curry will miss the 2023 NBA All-Star Game, which is set to be held on Feb. 19 in Salt Lake City. Who do you think is going to replace Curry until he is on his feet again? Let us know in the comment.
