According to a story published by Ric Bucher of Bleacher Report, Golden State Warriors guard Steph Curry is “unlikely” to return this season.
Curry had surgery last Friday on his broken left leg. At that point, the team announced that in three months it would change its status, which could have brought Curry back on the court around the All-Star Game.
For the Warriors, who played in the NBA Finals in five consecutive seasons — winning in 2015, 2017 and 2018 — this season has already been a tough fall, but they are off to a 2-6 start. They lost Kevin Durant in free agency, among other things, and Klay Thompson is out for the season because of a torn ACL in the finals.
Curry, a two-time MVP, endured October 30’s injury to the Phoenix Suns after he landed hard on his hand on a drive into the lane that ended with a collision with Aron Baynes ‘ Sun’s center.
In the first four games of the season, Curry, 31, averaged 20.3 points and has a career average of 23.5 points per game.
Golden State plays through Minnesota on Friday night.
