The worst possible thing that could happen to the Warriors happened.
Guard Stephen Curry broke his left hand during Wednesday night’s game against the Phoenix Suns, the Warriors confirmed.
The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson first reported that Curry had broken his left hand, citing sources.
Curry left Wednesday’s game against the Suns in the second half after Phoenix big man Aron Baynes fell on top of Curry’s left wrist following a collision under the Suns’ basket. The two-time MVP appeared to be in immediate pain.
Curry went to the locker room and did not shoot the resulting free throws from the Baynes’ foul, ruling him out for the remainder of the contest. NBC Sports Bay Area’s Kerith Burke said during the fourth quarter of the broadcast that Curry underwent X-rays on his left wrist and hand.
Burke spoke to Warriors general manager Bob Myers, who said that Curry would undergo a CT scan to determine next steps. Surgery is a possibility, and the estimated time of recovery is unknown at this time.
