The team has since confirmed the news.

The two-time MVP went up for a layup and came down hard on his hands and chest, only to have Suns center Aron Baynes land on top of him.
Curry was clearly in pain, though also was seen laughing at one point. Perhaps the laughter was of the “un-freaking-believable” variety. He went straight to the locker room, and bypassed his free throws, which disqualified him from returning at any point during the game.

Curry also appeared to roll his ankle a little bit earlier in the game.
It’s impossible to know the timetable for his return right now, since it depends on the severity of the fracture, and what specific bones it is. But losing their best player - and arguably the best player in basketball - is obviously catastrophic.
Beyond that, it’s salt in the wound for the Warriors. Golden State was blown out in their first two games, and on Wednesday - their fourth contest - were getting clobbered at home (as of the time when this story was published) by a Suns team that won 19 games a year ago.
Curry is now injured, joining not only Klay Thompson, but Kevon Looney and Jacob Evans III as well.
It is not good.

Curry was having a rough game before the injury, as he had made just one of seven three pointers. He left with a stat line of 9 points, 5 rebounds, and 6 assists.
