Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry will miss “a few weeks” due to a shoulder injury. He suffered the injury in the team’s 125-119 loss to the Indiana Pacers n Wednesday night. An MRI on Thursday confirmed that the reigning Finals MVP would miss some time due to the injury. This timetable would have him miss the team’s Christmas Day matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies. It would also mean that he doesn’t return to action until late December or even early January. That will likely depend on how quickly he recovers over the next few weeks.

This season so far with the Golden State Warriors, Stephen Curry is averaging 30.0 points, 6.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and one steal per game. He has paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 50 percent and a three-point percentage of 43.4 percent. The defending NBA Champion, Golden State Warriors have started the season somewhat sluggish, and missing their best player for a few weeks could set them back even more heading into 2023.
Golden State currently sits at 10th in the Western Conference Standings with an overall record of 14-15. Despite that, they are just five games back from the number one seed in the Western Conference and half a game from being out of the playoff picture altogether. Jordan Poole and the rest of the team will need to step up with Curry out during this period. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Curry the best in his recovery and eventual return to the basketball court.
