Steph Curry’s Injury Hurts Warriors Chances


At some point today, Steph Curry will have an MRI exam on his right knee and will reveal just how much of the postseason he will miss.

Curry is expected to miss Game 5 of the Golden State Warriors’ first-round series against the Houston Rockets. After that, it’s anybody’s guess as the Warriors’ go after a second straight NBA title.

Curry suffered what the team said is a knee sprain when he slipped on sweat on the court just as the first half was ending. He went down awkwardly, with his right knee bending inward and hitting the floor. He was helped to his feet and hobbled off the court. Still limping, he emerged for the start of the second half, but burst into tears when told he couldn’t return to the game.

Curry described what happened as a “freak injury.” It’s painful, but, he added (via Henry Wofford of CSN Bay Area), he told reporters he suffered a “freak injury,” adding he’s in pain but “will be okay,”. Curry also said it’s “definitely” not his anterior cruciate ligament. The pain is in the area of his medial collateral ligament, he said.

Meanwhile, as the series shifts to the Bay Area and the Warriors head home, Ayesha Curry did what you’d expect a blogger, cookbook author and soon-to-be host of a Food Network show to do: She got busy making comfort food to attend to her hobbled husband.
