Warriors’ Steph Curry Expected to Miss Several Weeks With Injured Shoulder

Warriors star guard Steph Curry underwent an MRI on his injured left shoulder Thursday and is expected to miss “a few weeks,” ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski quoted a source as saying.Steph Curry

Curry suffered the injury when Pacers big man Jalen Smith ran into his arm in the Warriors’ road loss Wednesday. Curry then bent over in obvious pain, clutching at the shoulder. That happened late in the third quarter, when Curry exited the game for good. He did not speak to the media after the game.

Meanwhile, coach Steve Kerr said that Curry was due to have the MRI on Thursday.

“The trainers told me he was out midway through the fourth quarter. I only spoke to him briefly after the game, so I haven’t had a chance to talk with him yet,” Kerr said immediately following the loss.

It’s always a bad thing when Curry isn’t available, but the Warriors (14-15) are in the midst of a six-game swing. The defending champions are now just 2-13 on the road, including 0-6 on the road against the Eastern Conference.

Curry, 34, is averaging 29.6 points, 6.8 assists, 6.6 rebounds and shooting 50 percent from the field, including 43 percent on 3-pointers, in 25 games.
