Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is expected to miss “a few weeks” with a left shoulder injury, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Thursday.
Curry suffered the injury with 2:04 left in the third quarter of Wednesday’s loss to the Pacers, after attempting to strip Jalen Smith of the ball as Smith drove to the hoop.
Curry immediately grabbed his left shoulder and continued to hold it as he ran down the court. The Warriors subsequently called a timeout, and he was looked at by two trainers on the bench. A few minutes later, Curry went back to the locker room and was officially ruled out of the game in the fourth quarter.
He was set to undergo an MRI on the shoulder Thursday.
Curry finished the game with 38 points — nearly half of the Warriors’ 80 points at the time of his injury — on 11-of-19 shooting, including five 3s and a perfect 11-of-11 from the free throw line. For the season, he’s averaging 30.0 points and 6.8 assists while shooting 50% from the field and 43.4% from 3.
Golden State fell to 14-15 with Wednesday’s loss.
