Draymond Green speaks out on the off-court impact of Steph Curry’s injury
The Golden State Warriors are at a crossroads. After making five consecutive trips to the NBA Finals as a team, this offseason has been full of tumult and injuries for the team, which have sadly continued into the regular season.
Two-time MVP Stephen Curry broke his hand in a game against the Phoenix Suns in which the team trailed 43 to 14 at the end of the first quarter.
Of course, many expected Curry to erupt this year with Kevin Durant no longer on the team, but Curry’s injury will reportedly keep him out for more than 3 months, which is a huge blow for Warriors fans as well as for the league at large.
Draymond Green, Curry’s longtime teammate, believes that the off-court impact of Curry’s injury will be just as impactful as it will be on the court, according to a story by Logan Murdock of NBC Sports Bay Area:
“I’m more worried about the Steph that can’t pick up Canon,” Green said. “The Steph that can’t toss [his daughters] Riley and Ryan around. The Steph that can’t pass [his wife] Ayesha a pot because she asks him ‘hey, grab that pot.’ That’s the Steph I worry about. It sucks. Like I’ve said that before, you live that every day of your life and that’s the part that is just tougher to me than anything.”
Indeed, a broken hand will impact a lot of everyday activities for Curry, so let’s hope he recuperates quickly and fully and gets back to the extremely high level that fans have come to expect from the point guard.
