Stephen Curry will miss the Warriors’ next four games
Warriors say Stephen Curry will be out for the next four games. Warriors will reevaluate him on March 20.
In addition, according to Connor Letourneau of SFGate.com, Curry’s injury isn’t considered that serious. Perhaps it’s a precautionary measure since the playoffs are just around the corner and he’s had ankle issues all throughout the season. If all goes well in the reevaluation, Curry could return on Mar. 23 against the Atlanta Hawks.
Early in his career, the major thing that has hampered Curry from knocking down threes is when he has missed games due to ankle problems. The string of right ankle injuries eventually forced him to undergo surgery in May 2011 to repair torn ligaments. The following season, Curry sprained his ankle five times and was sidelined for 56 games.
Though he has been relatively healthy during the Warriors’ championship run over the last several years, Curry’s ankle problems seem to be back to haunt him. In their game against the Hawks on Mar. 2, Curry was forced to sit out after the third quarter as their trainers noticed him limping after landing awkwardly on teammate Zaza Pachulia.
He came back on Mar. 8 in a win over the Brooklyn Nets but in their game against the San Antonio Spurs last Thursday, he re-injured his ankle less than three minutes into the game. Without Curry, the Warriors have lost two games in a row for only the second time this season.
Indeed, Curry’s ankle is a cause for concern and is something that the team is constantly on the lookout for. On the quest for another title run, Curry has to be in tiptop shape for the Warriors to have a fighting chance.
