Everyone in the Golden State Warriors organizations - and everyone who roots for the team - health their breath on Tuesday evening when Steph Curry exited Game 2 against the Houston Rockets after just a few minutes of play.
Curry headed to the locker room, the result of a dislocated middle finger on his shooting hand. He returned just a few minutes later, with the finger popped back in place, and some tape holding it to its neighbor.
At Friday’s practice, Curry offered an update on the finger, which is still sore, but isn’t going to keep him off the court.

“It feels all right,” Curry told reporters. “It’s gonna hurt. But it is what it is at this point. Just gotta keep playing.”
Well all right then. Curry seems confident that he won’t be slowed down the finger, even if he is in pain.
Hopefully the sore finger doesn’t hurt Curry’s jump shot too much.
