The Warriors are likely breathing a sigh of relief after an MRI on Stephen Curry‘s injured right knee.
According to a release from the team, an MRI revealed no structural damage. Curry will miss the Warriors’ game Thursday vs. the Thunder, and then be re-evaluated at the end of the week.
Curry missed his first game of the season on Tuesday vs. the Timberwolves. He seemed to suffer the injury in the home loss to Minnesota when he took a hard fall in the second half. He continued to play, however, scoring a game-high 38 points.
“Curry has been carrying a heavy load for the Warriors, averaging 30.7 points on 48.8% shooting from the floor, including 44.6% from 3. He has scored at least 30 points in six of Golden State’s 11 games thus far — scoring 40 or more in two.”
Suspensions and fines are likely to result. The Warriors (6-6) have lost three straight, all at home. Two of those losses have been to the Timberwolves (8-2).
