It didn’t take long after Stephen Curry left Friday’s game against the Atlanta Hawks for the Golden State Warriors to give a prognosis. Shortly after Curry went to the locker room with an apparent left leg injury, the team announced that he officially has a left knee strain.
Injury update: Stephen Curry (left knee strain) will not return to tonight's game.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) March 24, 2018
Not surprisingly, Curry will not return to Friday’s game, though he was playing tremendously when the injury occurred.
Knowing what the injury is doesn’t help us much with determining the extend of it. The team will proceed with extreme precaution, and as the MRI results come out, we’ll have a better idea of how severe the injury is, and when we can expect Curry back on the court.
Whether it’s good news that it’s the knee, not another ankle, is subjective. Make of it what you will.
As soon as we have any more information, we’ll update you. Hopefully Curry will be back by the playoffs; as long as that happens, I’m happy.
