Curry hurt his left foot during a scramble for a loose ball with Boston Celtics center Al Horford
Stephen Curry hurt his left foot during a scrum with Boston Celtics center Al Horford during Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The injury forced the Warriors to scratch out a win, but he will likely be able to play Game 4 in Boston. A sprained left foot has sidelined the Golden State Warriors for three straight seasons, but Curry’s recent injury is similar to one he suffered in the regular season.
Although Curry’s injury has forced him to miss 12 games during the regular season, he returned to play Game 3 on April 16. The injury happened during a scramble for a basketball with Boston Celtics center Al Horford and was the cause of his left foot pain. During a game, Curry runs continuously, often without the ball, so he needs to get an unobstructed view of the hoop.
MRI revealed a tailbone injury
Steph Curry will miss at least one more game after an MRI revealed a tailbone injury. The Warriors will evaluate Curry in a week. Curry suffered a tailbone injury while tripping over a riser during a game against the Houston Rockets on March 17. A subsequent MRI revealed inflammation of the tailbone. Although the injury is a minor one, it was enough to keep the star point guard out of the lineup. However, after a day of practice, Curry felt he could play. On Tuesday, he did. He played only 30 minutes in the game against the Bulls.
The Warriors are currently 22-21 in the Western Conference and sit ninth overall. If they were to make the playoffs, they would have to compete in the play-in tournament, a bracket for the teams that finish seventh through 10 in each conference. They enter Tuesday’s game three games ahead of 11th-place Oklahoma City, meaning the Warriors could get lucky and make it to the play-in round without Curry.
Curry’s recovery is progressing
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is expected to miss at least five more games due to his sprained left ankle. He suffered the injury on March 16 against the Boston Celtics. The Warriors announced that Curry would not play the rest of the game. Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports that Curry could be out indefinitely. Curry could still make an impact in the playoffs. Here’s how he’s recovering.
According to the Warriors, Stephen Curry is making good progress in his recovery. It is not yet clear when he will return to the court, but he has been cleared to participate in contact drills. He’s scheduled to practice with the G League’s Santa Cruz Warriors on Monday. His availability for Game 1 is unknown, but the Warriors are being cautious. Despite this, the Warriors have given fans a glimmer of hope.
Curry’s status for Game 4
Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry will play Game 4 of the NBA Finals, the team announced Tuesday. The Warriors trail the Boston Celtics 2-1 in the best-of-seven series. Curry injured his left ankle during Game 3 and was forced to leave after two minutes, according to his team. He had wrapped his foot and told reporters he expected to play. The Celtics’ massive guards are a concern for the Warriors, but Curry has said he is “going to play.”
According to his agent, Curry will practice today without getting an MRI. If he isn’t cleared for Game 4, the Warriors will not play. However, if Curry is indeed out, they may have to play without him. That would be a devastating blow for the Warriors, as Curry is the best player on the team. Moreover, the injury to Curry’s foot is similar to the one that cost him the rest of the season.
Impact of Curry’s injury on Warriors’ playoff seeding
The impact of Curry’s injury on the Warriors’ playoff seeding is unclear, but it could affect the team’s overall standing. In the West, the Warriors are a top contender to make the playoffs, and Curry’s injury could cause them to fall outside of the top five. The Warriors are currently 2.5 games back of the third-place Dallas Mavericks, who could overtake them if Curry misses two or three weeks. Despite the Warriors’ high-profile and high-value roster, the Warriors were supposed to be injury-proof when they signed Durant and Curry in 2016. Injuries can happen, and the Warriors were thought to be injury-proof when they signed Curry and Durant, so it will be important to keep a close eye on the situation.
The injury was a major blow to the Warriors, who were already down a game and were in the playoff hunt when Curry was injured. While the Warriors had just welcomed back Draymond Green from injury, their season was already a mess without Curry. Without Curry, the Warriors would have a very tough time reaching the playoffs and being the team that had the worst injury-to-player ratio.
