The Golden State Warriors have been dealt a major blow as star guard Stephen Curry will be out indefinitely after suffering partial ligament and membrane tears in his left leg.
The injury occurred during the Warriors’ win over the Milwaukee Bucks on Monday night. Curry was forced to leave the game in the second half and did not return.
The team has yet to announce a timeline for Curry’s return, but ESPN sources have reported that the two-time MVP is expected to be out through the All-Star break.
Yahoo Sports has reported that Curry is expected to miss multiple weeks due to the injury, while CBS Sports HQ reported that Curry will be out for at least two weeks.
The Warriors have expressed their support for Curry, and head coach Steve Kerr said that the team is keeping their “fingers crossed” for a speedy recovery.
Curry’s absence will leave a big hole in the Warriors’ lineup, and the team will need to rely on their other star players, such as Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala, to pick up the slack.
