San Francisco, CA – Now that there is an update on Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, the team has no choice but to look at life without their leading scorer. After practice on Friday, Klay Thompson spoke to the media about the situation for the first time since the injury.
“We’ll have to pick up the slack and let Steph (Curry) get healthy,” Thompson told ClutchPoints. “That’s what’s most important is having him when the games on the line come playoff time.”
Curry injured his left foot against the Boston Celtics, which forced him to exit the game. Friday, the Warriors announced that Curry underwent an MRI after the loss against the Celtics. It revealed a sprained ligament in his left foot, and he will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

The Warriors losing Curry is a huge issue. This season the star is averaging 25.5 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per night. His presence alone makes life easier on the court for all of his teammates.
“He averages a whole lot of points,” Thompson said. “So we all just collectively have to pitch in and just be a team. No one’s going to do what he can do individually. So collective effort is the way to go.”

Just when things were starting to look good for the Warriors, a devastating blow hit the team. Fortunately, it was only a strain for Curry because things could have been a lot worst.
Next, the Warriors will play the San Antonio Spurs at home inside the Chase Center. It will be the last night of a four-game homestand.
