Steph Curry is officially listed as “questionable” for Tuesday night’s game between the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Clippers. Curry has been dealing with the flu over the last few days, and missed the Warriors’ Saturday night victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
The two-time MVP did not practice on Sunday, and with the Warriors taking Monday off, we’re unlikely to have an update on Curry’s status until Tuesday.

It’s worth noting that Curry’s sickness is just the common flu. With the coronavirus causing much public fear - and shutting down many events in the Bay Area - the Warriors had to release a statement clarifying what Curry’s illness was. Or more importantly, what it wasn’t.
Curry returned on Thursday after a 58-game absence that lasted more than four months. But he only got on the court for one magical performance before the illness hit, and now it threatens to keep him out of multiple games.
In other injury report news, Golden State won’t be getting Kevon Looney back anytime soon. Looney - who has been limited to just 20 games and 262 minutes this year - will be re-evaluated for his hip soreness in three weeks.
And in non-Warriors injury news that still impacts the team, Milwaukee Bucks superstar (and MVP frontrunner) Giannis Antetokounmpo is going to miss the end of his team’s road trip.

After returning home, the Bucks will host the Boston Celtics on Thursday, and the Warriors on Saturday. If the injury lingers, we might miss the fun MVP showdown between Curry and Antetokounmpo.
