After weeks of recovering from a nagging ankle harm, Steph Curry’s return did not final lengthy. The Golden State Warriors star suffered a left knee harm within the third quarter of Friday evening’s 106-94 win over the Atlanta Hawks and didn’t return.
Curry can have an MRI on his sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) on Saturday. There have not been any new experiences about his standing, however he reportedly was in good spirits within the locker room.
Curry’s return will rely upon the severity of the harm. A minor MCL tear may imply he will probably be out of the lineup for as much as 10 days, however a extra extreme tear may imply he will probably be out for as much as 4 weeks.
“We’ll see what the MRI says tomorrow. There’s not a complete lot we will do or predict,” head coach Steve Kerr advised reporters Friday. “Sort of a wierd, merciless coincidence.”
There are 10 video games remaining on the Warriors’ schedule. The ultimate sport of the season is on April 10.
The 30-year-old suffered the harm when teammate middle JaVale McGee tried to dam a shot by Hawks’ Mike Muscala. McGee landed on Curry, who instantly started to limp. Curry then went to the bench earlier than heading to the locker room.
“No, I can’t describe it,” McGee advised the San Jose Mercury Information. “All people has a TV. I fell into him. I do know you don’t assume I’m sitting right here like, sure, I fell into him or one thing. That’s the star participant. After all, we don’t need him to be injured, particularly as he got here again. I really feel very unhealthy for the truth that I used to be part of that.”
Curry is averaging 26.four factors per sport off 49.5 % taking pictures from the sphere.
