So much for bringing the dynastic trio back together.
Stephen Curry will be out for at least two weeks after spraining ligaments in his left foot in Wednesday’s loss, the Warriors announced on Friday.
Curry headed to the locker room midway through the second quarter of the Warriors’ 110-88 loss to the Boston Celtics after forward Marcus Smart rolled over his left foot while the two were chasing a loose ball. Curry, who finished with just three points, was seen limping on the pitch for a minute before leaving the game and never returning.
An MRI of Curry’s foot after the game reportedly revealed no fracture or major damage to the ligaments.
Golden State will be without Curry for his home game against the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday, and he will be sidelined for his crucial five-game East Coast road trip that spans back-to-back games.
Curry, who will miss at least seven games, will be re-rated on April 1. At this point, the Warriors have five regular season games left.
Curry’s injury comes as a blow to a team that appeared to be on the verge of reuniting their dynastic trio just a game earlier.
Monday’s 126-112 win over the Wizards was the first time Curry, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson had played together in 1,005 days.
In total, the three have played 11 minutes together in the last two games.
Green declared earlier this week that the Warriors “are going to win a championship,” but now those title ambitions appear bleak.
The Warriors are in the midst of a heated battle for a place in the playoffs. They are currently No. 3 in the Western Conference — one game behind the second-seeded Grizzlies and nine behind the top-seeded Suns.
