Stephen Curry, who fell hard on the final play of the first half yesterday vs. the Houston Rockets, has suffered a Grade 1 MCL sprain and will miss about two weeks of actions.
All things considered (in the words of Curry himself), this is GREAT, GREAT news for Warriors fans.
Of course The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski had the news first.

Followed by the official Warriors' PR team tweeting out this:

Stephen Curry himself gave fans a ray of hope when he sent out this message about a half hour before official word came down:
Thanks 4 all the prayers & messages. Can feel all the positive energy. God is Great! All things considered I’m Gonna be alright! #DubNation— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) April 25, 2016
Assuming that all goes well, assuming there are no further complications, this would potentially put Curry back in action somewhere near games 3-5 of the second round series (assuming, of course, that the Warriors advance). If the Warriors can hold the ship adrift, they still have a shot. All in all, #DubNation must be smiling right now.
Alright Draymond, Klay, and Andre, it's your time to keep this thing alive.
We gonna be alright https://t.co/cl6Z6TOU5Z— Bethlehem Shoals (@freedarko) April 25, 2016
