The Golden State Warriors have been dealt a blow as their star player, Steph Curry, has been ruled out of their game against the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday at Chase Center due to a lower left leg injury.
The injury occurred late in the third quarter when Curry appeared to bang knees with Mavericks guard McKinley Wright IV. After being whistled for a foul and immediately coming up limping, Curry was evaluated by Warriors trainer Rick Celebrini before going back to the locker room.
Fortunately, ESPN’s Jorge Sedano first reported, and the Warriors later confirmed, that X-rays on Curry’s leg were negative and he will undergo an MRI. Curry had a game-high 21 points on 7-of-11 shooting from the field and 2-of-6 from 3-point range when he left the game.
This injury comes on the heels of Curry’s left shoulder subluxation, which caused him to miss 11 games earlier this season. The Warriors can’t afford to have him miss any more time as they try to get their season back on track.
No one wants to see any of their favorite players go down with an injury, and the Warriors’ faithful will be hoping for a speedy recovery for Steph Curry.
