Bleacher Report’s Ric Bucher reported on Friday that Curry likely won’t return this season since the Warriors won’t be competitive once his broken hand has fully healed.

Without Curry, the Warriors have no chance of making the playoffs. Heck, even with a healthy Curry, Draymond Green and D’Angelo Russell, the Dubs were going to have a difficult time reaching the postseason in the rugged Western Conference since Kevin Durant is gone and Klay Thompson is out with an ACL injury.
The Warriors basically see the writing on the wall, even if Kerr and GM Bob Myers won’t admit it publicly. This will be a development season for the youngsters on the roster while Curry rehabs his hand. Curry is expected to miss at least four months after having surgery on his broken left hand.
In the four games he played in this season, Curry averaged 20.3 points, 5.0 rebounds and 6.5 assists while shooting 40.9 percent from the field, just 24.3 percent from beyond the arc and a perfect 100 percent from the free-throw line.
Curry is making $40.2 million this season. He signed a $200 million extension with the Warriors in the summer of 2017.
